Table strap

Travel trailer > Mods > Table strap


Unlike our previous travel trailer, the table in the Rockwood 2701SS is not secured to the floor so you have to fold it for travel (a bit of a pain) or find a way to secure it when upright. I chose the latter.

While on our first camping trip with this trailer I secured one of the two table legs to the rail along the inside of the U-shaped dinette bench. That proved too restrictive for Emily, who usually sits against the outer wall. We needed something that could be undone... enter the turn button.

Here's the hole through which the turn button will pass.

Strap unfastened. This allows the table to be moved out from the wall to make room for Emily's legs.

An easy mod that ensures we won't have to fold the table for travel in future.
