In our last trailer we had what I call scissor legs under the table. We found it worked fine and was reasonably stable. You can move it side to side to allow entrance or just keep it out of the way fully to one side. You can put a rug underneath and the big advantage is you always have a full size table you can take outside if there are no picnic tables available. (However our trailer also came with an outside clip on Thule plastic table which we used all the time.)
The only real disadvantage to the scissor legs I found was that it should be stored in the down/bed position while traveling.
The reason I took these pictures was because I was so impressed by itís function. If that does not impress you, then maybe the price. Looks like they sell for about $30 a pair. Not a big investment spent...if you want to upgrade in the future.
We had this in a Forest River trailer and hated it.
I found quickly, do not have your food or coffee on the table when someone who was not familiar with the table was setting down as they often jostled the table or bumped the legs.
As far as breaking it down into a bed it is about as clumsy as the method Escape uses.
The one advantage was it could be used outside.
