I think you might be asking about the original post from Overland but you are responding to my post. In any event, we did not order any factory installed table. We ordered the access hatch to the basement instead. Then we used Overland’s approach (you might have seen the floor table mount in his pictures above) to mount the lagun table bracket under the driver’s side bed.

Yes, we started off with the king bed table in a twin bed. That was a hare brained idea of mine that Jason tried to talk me out of. It worked O.K., but I should have listened because the table is heavy and bulky and I could never find a place to store it when it wasn’t set up. So in practice it was awkward and it didn’t make it past the first trip.

You’re absolutely correct, my apologies! Happy you responded though as I did come across your modification and Blog…very nicely done! Did you make the Laguna mount yourself or did you get that from Overland?

Thanks for the reply Overland…much appreciated! I’ve been torn between ordering the King bed or the Twin bed version for the past year, but am glad I came across your post and reply that you would recommend the Twin bed version especially with your Laguna Table modification that gives you the extra table space when required. Beautiful work on the project by the way! By any chance, are you making and selling this Luguna mount that you created? I really think many of us out here would be interested in this mount if it were available…me included!

Good morning Overlander!
Do you look into any other options for a table between your twin beds (i.e. telescoping table) with permanent or removable base?
Regarding your custom mount for your Laguna table, is there any chance you can forward some more detailed photos to me or better yet, provide me with a mechanical drawing so I can have one of my machinist friends construct one for me?
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

I’ll see if I can’t get out there today and measure the width and depth for you, which is really all anyone would need. The width isn’t so important, provided you have enough to bolt through without getting into the corner brackets. I think that the table comes with a template for drilling the holes – if not, you can use the table mount itself as a template. The depth also will have some variability since I’m sure not every bed overhang gets riveted in exactly the same spot. However, there’s also come play in the end brackets since they can slide out if needed. It’s only a question of everything looking flush. The base of the bed isn’t 100% perpendicular anyway (very little on the tailer is), so you’ll have a bit of a gap at the top. I honestly don’t remember if I tried to account for that or not. The angle is slight and you’d have to crawl on the floor to see it, but there are definitely owners here (including me), who’d stress over that, lol.
I know it looks kind of complicated, but really it’s only four cuts on a miter saw and two holes.

My bracket is 5 3/16″ deep by 8 ¼” wide.
About the other table styles, yes, I looked at the marine pedestal tables, but I thought that the Lagun was more versatile and easier to remove. And as it turns out, we don’t ever take it down – we have good access to the beds with the table folded, and since my wife sleeps facing the wrong direction she uses it as her nightstand.
