We have a similar (or maybe the same wobbly table). Trailer was at the dealer a couple weeks ago for a few small warranty fixes. I was kind of whining to the service tech about the poor table table design and he immediately said they get that complaint constantly. He added it to the work order and said one of their guys was the designated table fixer. Said they could make it better - not perfect, but better.
Picked it up last night. I didn't get a chance to see exactly what they did, but the work order said they "added longer screws." Table is better. The top doesn't wobble anymore - it is very firmly attached to the legs. You can still wiggle the whole thing but a major improvement. Our dining room table at home has a similar issue because there is a single pedestal in the middle so if you lea n on the edge it moves the whole table. Short of legs on the corners, I don't how you keep a table with legs in the center from moving some. Your idea about anchoring it to the wall seems like a pretty good way to go. The first trip out, ours bounced over and was rubbing the island cabinets. Attaching it to the wall would solve that as well.
But, the dealer did improve the table at no charge under warranty.
We also had a similar "concern" on the awning when it was over the kitchen slideout. When I put a decent pitch on the awning, it actually touches the top of the slide. After a few trips, it seems like that is not a problem. There isn't anything sharp and the awning touches, but doesn't bounce or rub - just stays put. Decided the risk of closing the slide on a pool noodle or similar was worse than letting the awning touch.
