Normally a w/d hitch other than the fifth wheel which is done at Trademasters, maybe a flip up shelf or brake controller.There is a limit as Escape is doing 2 per day now and there are also time constraints at the border crossing. I had my propane and water tanks filled.

Springfield table base and 3 sets of umbra hooks. Extra cost for each install at the time of install.
They did set up my hitch. Believe that was free, can’t recall. Did a great job though.

OMG! I’m a senior member now.

I've been doing some research on table bases so I will watch for the answer, too. I'm having two dinettes in my 17a so theoretically I will need 4 supports. I want to have low profile floor attachments for at least the front, preferably for all four. One dinette will pretty much remain a (partial) bed, and the other will mostly be a table, but it would be nice to have easy up and down especially if the table is heavy. (the one on my chalet weighed 40 lbs!)

For ease of lowering the table.

Instead of wiggling it back and forth to loosen the legs and lifting an awkward table up with hopefully both legs still attached to the floor. Next set the table aside and possibly remove one leg from the table after which you reach down and remove the other or both legs from the floor. After this you store the two legs and now move the cushions back slightly and lower the table down into position. Hopefully while not dropping it and taking out the battery disconnect. switch

With the Springfield you make sure the table is centered, flip the 2 latches move the cushions slightly and push down then tighten the 2 latches.

Raising the Springfield is just as easy. Flip the 2 latches, it rises, tighten them.

Usually for centering the table all I do is leave the table adjustment knob loose. then tighten it when we raise the table.

The original reason for the Springfield is that the stock ones wobble something awful. In an effort to find one that is sturdy someone found and tried the Springfield. Not perfect but a huge improvement.
