Oh my. We just traveled with ours down but never had before. That could do major damage. Have to make sure that those legs are properly seated.

I've never taken my table down as it's too hard for one person--well, for me, that is--and have never had any problem. But having it seated properly is key.

Karen, I have taken the table down and I think the key is to just get it onto a cushion immediately. It is doable. Seemed really bad at first.

No issues with ours either, Karen. Though it is no problem for me to take down the table myself (though always easier with someone to grab the pedestal legs), we have only done it on a couple occasions when it was used as a bed. Never had an issue, and we have driven some rough roads that caused havoc with a few of the other items in the trailer, a couple panels came loose, fridge door opened, etc.

If it is real tough to lift off, it should stay put while driving.

Jim, what happened that yours came off, and what damage was done?

We have travelled with the table up and also with the table down, with no issues either way. When it is up, just make sure it is well seated in the supports and should be no problem. If driving on a really rough road, slow down.
