Having a woodworking shop at hope and access to the machine shop at work I can always make something real rugged if the new legs from FR don't work out

UPDATE: Well I regret to report that the table (at least ours) is definitely wobbly. As in my prior post the culprit seems to be a poorly designed (or not up to the job) single latch that holds ONE of the three sections of ONE leg together when the table is in the upright position. Maybe a second latch on the other leg may have helped.

In the first picture the table is partially collapsed so the sections can be easily seen. In the second picture the table is in its upright/locked position and the gap can still be seen. Multiply this gap times six (two legs, three sections each) and you can start to see how if these sections are not (very) securely held together the whole assembly will be weak. By the way in the pictures the table is upside down resting on the dinette benches.

Ivesm, have you put your table together yet? What did you find?

I have 2 posts and the floor and table cups if someone wants to pay shipping, they can have them.

You could probably replace the legs with something similar to the existing legs, that were a bit stronger without any problem.
The other thing I was thinking about was installing the Dream Dinette table, but I don't know how much reinforcement would need to be added to the wall.

I spoke to my dealer about it, but he was not aware of anyone who'd done that with the 2604.

If you have a U shaped dinette I would remove the cups on the floor and cut a piece of 3/4 inch plywood to fit in the floor space. I would,get the Sequoia Table Leg System and screw the base plates to the plywood (carpet the plywood if desired) so no screws go into the slide out floor. I did something different but you could get the idea.

I'm surprised you could renew the thread since it is 4 years old!

My wobbly folding mechanism bit the dust back in April.

So I replaced with pedestals. No more sloshing drinks!

Is that on a slide floor? How did you mount leg bases?

dinette table legs

They are mounted to 3/4 inch plywood with 3/4 inch screws. Very sturdy.
And it is in the slide out.

Couldn't have said it better myself!
Drilled a pilot hole for each screw. I used a piece of masking tape around the drill bit at 1/2" so I wouldn't drill through the plywood and mistakenly hit something.

Here is a couple of pics of the plywood under the carpet and the bases on the floor.

So you did not add plywood just drilled into what was there?
Appreciate the responses!

I used 3/4" screws(don't remember the size)( big enough to fit flush in the holes in the metal base), and drilled a small pilot hole 1/2" deep, just enough to get the screw going in the correct direction.
The thickness of the carpet and the metal base will easily take up the other 1/4" inch.
You just don't want the screw going thru the 3/4" plywood floor. If that happens, you'll have the screw dragging on the main floor under the slide floor. You don't want that!
I mounted the bases on the tabletop first, inserted the legs, and positioned the "table" where I wanted it to sit.
Measured the bottom bases to be the same width from each side of the dinette walls.
Drilled the pilot holes.
Used the drill to screw the screws in tight.

Why not just cut a pc of 3/4" plywood the size of the dinette opening, carpet it and mount the table to that and use flat head screws inserted from the bottom and nuts on top and slide the whole thing into the cutout? No worry about length of screws or the wood screws coming loose. You could put a couple of wood screws thru it and into the slide if it moved around.

where did you get the legs and bases?? I have the newer metal style on my rockwood 2304S but it's still very wobbly. Would like to replace with something like the above.

Sorry Coot, this guy. Ok, thanks for link. It shows , what I believe is two different legs for different prices. Which one did you get?

Hello all, I know this is an old thread from 2010, but I have the table legs that yvesm had just received on my Rockwood 8310SS. It jiggles and wiggles and spills any liquid placed on it. We like the option of moving the table around, so don't want to use the post version of installing it. Likewise, 4 legs would make the 3-sided dinette inaccessible. Has anyone come up with a replacement idea for support of the table? I'm more than willing to sacrifice the use of the dinette area as a bed if that is a consequence. I'm imagining one of those diner pedestals that are round at the bottom, like an upside down intake valve on a combustion engine. Does that bring the right picture to mind?

I had the dreaded table leg wobble also. I replaced the whole system with folding table legs.... and forgot to adjust for human legs while at the table.

I have a 2010 mini literature 2502s. It also had the flimsy, bendable table legs. I had them changed at the 2012 Goshen Rally. Very similar design but the legs are MUCH stronger. Maybe you can contact Forest River for a new set of legs. I believe they know the originals were junk.
