Lagun table bracket mod

There have been lots of threads about the Lagun table mount. I didn't like any of the table options for our new 5.0 TA and decided to use the Lagun. I installed the Lagun bracket today and have not yet decided on the size of table top. I reinforced the back wall of the u shaped dinette with 3/4 in. plywood, used a 4' length of angle iron across the top of the same wall, and made a brace to reinforce the back wall to the floor behind it. With the Lagun bracket installed on the wall, it seems very solid! I will either make a table top or look at the Lagun table tops. The Lagun folding table might be an option but quite expensive! Here are a few pics.

Hi Mark - Looks great and very professional! We'll pick up our new 5.0 on July 19th. I also bought a Lagun table mount system and plan on doing a modification to support it. I won't be able to do something as elaborate as yours, but hopefully adequately enough to enforce the back of the dinette bench (we also went with the U-shaped option).
Hope you're enjoying your new trailer. Let me know what you do for the table top. I like the tops for sale on the website where I purchased the Lagun system, but they're pretty pricy. I may attempt to make my own. I like the foldable ones with hinges to save even more space.
Regards,
John

Hopefully our new 5.0 will arrive within a week and it use so happens there is Lagun support in my garage waiting for it. Thanks to your pics I'll get a head start on it.
I'm also not sure about what table I'll use, probably make a proto type out off plywood.

nice job Mark...this camper likes the lagun as well...seems nice not having something where your feet are...came up with a mounting method for the 19 that should be very strong and hopefully not too difficult to mod.

Is there anything under the floor that might punctured by the hold down screws ?

Did you bolt the lagun only through your plywood reinforcement with the metal bracket off to the side or did you bolt through plywood and metal bracket? I don't see the holes through your bracket

Nice work, Mark. Does that allow the pedestal/table to be totally removed when you don't want it? Looks like it does, but can't tell for sure.

Yes, the Lagun mount is bolted through my bracket. I did need to get longer through bolts to go through the plywood and metal bracket. There are only 2 bolts in the picture.
