Here you go my flat bungees are otherwise engaged but you get the idea.

Like I said I am changing those boards to oak and adding a few more cleats for securing other things under the table.

Thanks Cypherian for taking the time to post your table picture. I think the way you are securing your table is probably the easiest and a very effective way to go.

I've got the same table setup in my Starcraft as the Escapes come with, put on a lot of miles over all sorts of roads without mishap. I do however like the idea as having a method for securing the table for those times your going to be on rough roads, Cypherian's looks like it'd fit the bill.

Had some time this morning to work on a table tie down system here what I came up with.
My plan is to almost always leave are table in the set up position.So I wanted something that I could leave attached both well driving and well the trailer is being occupied .They are easily removable if I decided to take the table down. Now the springs are probably on the larger then needed size but there where what I had laying around in my work shop. I used some 1/8" stainless steal aircraft cable that I also had left over from one my other projects. So the only thing I had to buy was the s- hook and I bolts I think the total cost $4.50 dollars.

Ingenious. Secures all the parts yet allows the table top to be slid back and forth if desired (ours will have a separate lock for that.) Bravo and well done!

Nice :} Just goes to show more then one way to skin a cat.. I like mine since I can also secure stuff under the table with the cleats. Though, might do that one too so if I am not needing to put anything under the table I can just use that and not fool with it.

Just make sure your guests have shaved their legs.
