New Table for U Shaped Dinette

We have been annoyed by the amount of space the table mounts and legs take in the u-shaped dinette of our 5.0 Classic. We have watched people's different options: techfan's scissor leg table, someone else recently posted using only 1 leg, TV tables, side mounted folding trays, etc.
So we offer another option: mounting the original table top (with slider) onto the base for a 'hospital style' bedside table. Just completed this morning. There is a little wobble in it but not bad. When in the further back position , weight at the back might tip it but we might work on a fix for that...some temporary way to secure the base to the floor.
We don't ever use the dinette area as a bed but could still do so by removing to bolts from the bottom of the table. We'll see how this works out next time we hit the road.
We used this table: Drive Medical Non Tilt Top Overbed Table, Silver Vein: Health & Personal Care
mostly because it was the least expensive with decent reviews.
The table can be raised up but it seems to be perfect in the lowest possible position.
