Nuova Mapa telescoping table leg and slider

Hi everyone, just installed my Nuova Mapa telescoping table leg and slider (Product SKU 400-02600). I gotta say, it's pretty sweet!

I found these on-line several months ago, but unfortunately, they're usually their only available in Austrailia (maybe Europe?). I tried purchasing from some of the major Austrailian "caravan" dealers, but none would ship to the U.S. I also contacted the Italian manufacturer Nuova Mapa, but they replied they don't currently have any North American dealers.

Anyway, forgot about it for awhile until a few weeks ago I stumbled on to a dealer in Austrailia who had one left in stock. He said he doesn't usually ship stateside, but would do it for me. So after spending $370 USD ($287 USD for the complete table leg and sliding system, plus $83 shipping) -- it arrived at my house about a week later!

The pedestal's minimum height is 330mm (13.0") and max is 710mm (28.0").

The pedestal locks in at the max and min heights, you can't have it at an arbitrary height like with the Springfield. The max table height is always 28.0" and you can set the min height from 330mm (13.0") to 410mm (16.1"). I set mine at 375mm (14.75") for the table down position.

To lower the table, step on the button on the floor to release the lock. Once you press the button, you need to push down on the table to lower it until it locks into the down position. To raise the table, press the button and the table will raise by itself until it "clicks" into the top position.

No worries about accidentally kicking or stepping on the button while your sitting at the table, it feels more like a lever and you need to press pretty hard for it to release.

The built in slider moves in all 4 directions, and it rotates 360 degrees!
The slide bracket is 710mm (28.0") x 440mm (17.3"). From center, the table will slide 100mm (3.9") to the left and 100mm to the right, and 200mm (7.8") to the back and 200mm to the front.

To give a little more room for people getting in and out on the passenger side, I intentionally installed the table top 1.5" off center so that the table top will be 5.4" to the right when the slider is fully extended 3.9" to the right. I wish it had a few more inches side to side movement, but it's adequate to get in and out of the passenger seat. I thought about turning the slider 90 degrees and mounting it sideways for lots of side-to-side movement, but if you do that, the slide's brackets are closer to your legs when your sitting.

The slider lock works kind of like a bicycle brake. You squeeze the handle and the rubber "brake pads" retract from the table and you can then slide and rotate.
When you release the handle, the pads push back into the table and hold it in place.

I'll give an update after trying it during our next trip.

Here's a video about it:

That looks great...I think there would be a real market for it in North America.

It is a real nice table leg and slider. I would like to buy one when it is imported in the future.

That looks like a nice setup. Nice that you were able to buy it as an assembly. It appears functionally equivalent to a Springfield pedestal with a Dicor slide.

Hi goalie39,
I have a question for you. The Springfield pedestal model 1660230, which is 12-3/4" high when placed in the low position. This is the model required for the height of ETI's benches. Since Nuova Mapa Telescope Table leg has a minimun height of 13", which is a quarter inch higher than the ETI's bench support, are you able to make a bench bed with good strong suppoet when lowering the the table leg to the lowerest position. Thanks.

Hi Tonny,


I think with the Springfield you need to also add on the height of any slider mechanism to get the table height. With the Nuova Mapa, the top of the slider is the same as the top of the pedestal.


What ultimately matters is the size of the rails the table sits on when down. On my trailer, they are about 14 5/8", so I needed to raise the Nuova Mapa from it's default down position of 13" to 14.75"
