Need a telescoping table leg

I added a vignette to my arctic wolf 271rk. What I am looking for is a telescoping pedestal to easily move the table up and down to create the bed platform. I need a range from 30 inches to 18 inches.

Any ideas.

We decided to switch to a pedestal on our A-frame dinette because the OEM folding legs were a royal PIA. They took up a lot of space under the table when it was lowered, and were great at pinching fingers when we raised or lowered the table. So I thought a pedestal would improve things.

I searched Amazon and West Marine, and saw a variety of telescoping pedestals. All were several hundred $$ +. The cheaper ones had lousy reviews. Many would not go as low as I needed, 14 inches.

Finally decided to go with a removable pedestal for $60. I only needed 2 positions - table height and bed height. And doing some measuring, I realized with the high walls we could leave the table in the up position when camper was folded down for trailering. Since we rarely use the dinette as a bed, it seemed like a good solution.

Through-bolted the base to the floor, and reinforced the table where the top plate mounted with a piece of plywood. The latter raised the table an inch to put it at a more comfortable height. To make the table sturdier with a single pedestal, I attached a strip of wood to the front wall with velcro on top, and matching velcro on the underside of the table. So table is reasonably sturdy in the up position.

Lots more storage underneath the table with the OEM folding legs removed. Only disadvantage is that table cannot be set up outside the camper. But we carry a folding table for that purpose, and 2 "prep tables" that attach to the camper on the rail where the RVQ grill would go (1 prep table was standard with the camper).
