I've found five threads on FiberglassRV using Coroplast, but they're mostly for use on the floor. Dang. I even responded to one of them, but that was back in 2011. Shortimers memory.

Donna, do you remember the table legs I have in the Boler?
I am also in no condition to struggle with a table so I will be using a set of these in the Escape 19' for the front dinette.

The table in the Boler is 3/4" ply and 34"x34" and I can raise and lower it with one hand, plus it is very stable. The table is not fastened to the floor which means you can take it outside if you want but you also need to travel with it in the lowered position and secured or it will end up somewhere unexpected :

Ian, I've bookmarked your source for the legs and remember what you said about the cost and cost to ship to Canada.

Ian, do you have any idea how much the entire table might weight? If I need to wrestle it out the door for use...

I probably won't make a final decision until I have to get my build sheet in. Since it's Sunday, freezing rain outside and I'm bored.. I'm bugging you kind folks!

One FiberglassRV thread - 76 Boler Reno/Rework - initially referred to extensive structural use of Coroplast, but generally in vertical cabinet walls/doors, rather than a tabletop. Those applications make sense, and would be even better in Stinger. It's a long thread, so it didn't review it all, and I don't recall how it came out.

I believe that the others were for use under the floor (protecting insulation on the underside), for use on walls, or were not pursued.

Not sure of the weight Donna, and right now the Boler & Casita are in storage and it is -27 outside (not going out today). The legs themselves are not that heavy, maybe about 15 lbs (but don't quote me on that), then the weight of the table top.

What exactly are these legs, Ian? How do you plan to get in on the bath side if it doesn't slide. I like the idea it could be taken outside.

These are the same legs we installed April 1, 2013 when we picked up our 15B. We have now used them for, oh my gosh it's almost a year! They work great and can be removed to the outside but it is a tight squeeze in a 15. One of the larger trailers might find it easier. We first saw these legs at an RV show, they are the "standard" table legs in R-Pod trailers. It did take me a while to track them down, however, finally locating them at the RV Surplus. (Shipping was the killer, not just to Canada, but to Washington State as well.

Here is my link to the table legs and pictures

Too funny Tim

Our story exactly, saw them at the Calgary RV show in an R-Pod, took a while to track down, also paid the excessive shipping costs but they arrived in Feb 2013.

Jim, because the table is not connected top the floor you simple slide the entire table sideways to access the bathroom side. This is what we do in the Boler to access the stove side, and I don't have angled corners on that table.

Do you have a link to the legs, or at least a name. I could not find that in your writeup.

Yeah, makes sense, and one could either still have the angles, or even shorten the table a few inches if needed.
