Question...when the table is put down for a bed, does it rest on molded channels on the bench...or are there wooden braces on the bench face?

Answered my own question...finally found a close enough pic of the 21.

Silly me, the dinette is wood, NOT fiberglass.

I thought you knew something I didn't about the cabinet builds. I wasn't even thinking... fiberglass. Of course I wouldn't. My Scamp has the wood interior too. In your travels through the forums did you find a 21' with the hinge table? I'm striking out.

I think Paul has a hydraulic one. Would be interesting to know if he is getting another one or decided against it. His is going out the door soon hopefully. Or maybe he is keeping it and putting the 19' back to the original set-up.

Me again, more tables!

Has anyone at anytime, changed from a plywood table to Coroplast or something similar? I know it would need to be doubled (glued) because the thickest I've found is 10mm, but it is a LOT lighter than a wood table and supposedly just as strong or stronger... I'm getting weaker by the minute and wrestling a table isn't doable. (no, it's not my health... it's age related )

I wouldn't consider regular Coroplast, but that Stinger looks like it has potential. My guess is that it would need a thin plywood (or even plastic laminate such as Formica) top surface, plus edging, and even a bottom layer to spread the load out from the leg attachment points.

How thick is the stock Escape table, and is it simply a plywood panel with a laminate surface, and some sort of edge finish? It has been a while since I've seen one.

Jim, said the table is about 3/4" thick and yes, it's plywood. The Stinger Coroplast is available with a plastic skin. To get to the 3/4 inch thickness, I was noodling two pieces of 10mm and "veneer" of thickness to equal 3/4" on the top and bottom. Haven't even thought of the attachment points for the hinge or pedestals. More wood!

In the end, I'll probably just say... screw the table, I'll use the stooge tables and a TV tray

But, the Coroplast is interesting for those looking to save a ton of weight!

I'm thinking one layer of 10 mm Stinger, 1/4" (or maybe only 1/8") plywood on top plus laminate, 1/4" of plywood on the bottom with a thicker plywood pad around the hardware. Solid wood edging routed to bridge the top and bottom plywood. Similar thickness to the original, with hopefully adequate strength since the middle of a bending structure like this is under lower stress.

This would definitely need to be tested, and I think the Stinger material will be hard to find in small retail quantities. There are many other core materials (honeycombs or foams, in aluminum or plastics) that could be used since we're talking about top and bottom skins anyway, but this isn't exactly Home Depot territory, and the Stinger is likely to be cheaper than more exotic core stock.
