New table for Solaire?
While on an extended stay, I noticed that the dinette table in my Solaire seemed to be slanted toward the rear. When I accidentally leaned on it one day trying to reach the shade on the rear window, it tilted even further, allowing everything on it to slide off onto the seat. When I checked, I found that the screws holding the leg brackets on the floor had pulled out. Further inspection showed that the wood screws holding the bracket are only about 1/2" long. Most were pulled completely out! I put all the screws back in but turned both brackets just a bit so the screws were between the original screw holes. It still leans a bit toward the rear, and I'm afraid to lean on the table because it doesn't seem really stable. I'm looking for a solution.
I thought of replacing the original screws with longer screws to increase stability. However, the dinette is in the slide & I don't know how thick the flooring is. Not sure if I can use longer screws without possibly damaging something. Anyone have any info on that?
Second thought is to replace the table with a freestanding model - but with folding legs so it could be removed & stored. I'd probably want to keep the original table top somewhere in the camper in case I ever need to convert the dinette to a bed. Any suggestions or recommendations?
Third thought is to keep the original table top (which I really like) but add some type of folding legs that wouldn't need to be bolted down. Any comments/suggestions?
Anyone have any other possible solutions?
If you're not familiar with the table in the Solaire, here's a photo.
