Large Dinette Table

Recommended Posts

While looking at how the Leisure Van table works, located here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-UJlTt0Igg&list=PL032101282FA42A55 , in the time frame of 8:58 to 10:10, I was struck with just how cool that table is and all of its functions. That thing does everything but tuck the Grand kids in !

Any one know who makes that table ? And what do you think of it ?

Larry, we went to the boat show in St. Pete yesterday. While Paul was studying marine hardware in an adjacent booth, I spent some time in the SVHotwire booth. They market a Swedish made table for boats and RVs that is fascinating, and really well made. It's not quite like the one you posted, but it's quite a versatile little table bracket. It is, however, wall or bulkhead mounted, not floor mounted like ours. Sure would be nice to be able to lift up the small dinette table at a flip of a lever to make it more practical to use as a prep table in the kitchen.

The people who market this product, among many others, are serious renewable energy innovators. They manufacture a wind generator, at a fairly reasonable price, for boats, rvs, homes. They lived on a boat powered by renewable energy for years, now live in a renewable energy powered home. They also sell pv panels and systems.Their shop is in Tarpon Springs, near the sponge docks.

Looks good. I was hoping for a video also. Did I miss finding one ?

These tables look very good and would be great in the Olivers. Maybe Oliver R&D could purchase one and figure out how to make their own for the Oliver.

I agree, Steve. Or, just figure out a way to apply some backing in an area to allow use of the table support. The support and the tabletop are sold separately, anyway.

I picked up one of the new fibergranite tabletops that Oliver is making for the new models. Sooo light. And so attractive. I love it.

Our back tabletop is so heavy that I have a real struggle moving it around by myself. Maybe next year's Christmas gift to the trailer will be new tabletops.
