Dash workstation add on?

After seeing the dash workstations on a lot of the newer coaches, I was wondering if there is an add on for this. Seems this would take advantage of a lot of wasted real estate up front. I started looking for mod for this but haven't had any luck so far. Don't think I want to cut into my dash, maybe something that would fasten down on top?
Thanks
Dan

What exactly are you looking for?
On mine, the actual dash is too far forward to be of use.
Are you talking about something that fits over the pull-out tray in fromt of the co-pilot chair?

Regards,

Dan

Our older rig doesn't have one and even with the passenger seat all the way forward it's not very close to the dash. The passenger seat is anchored slightly behind the driver's seat. I thought about adding one, but that's as far as I got. I need to explore what's under the dash pad on the passenger side. The drivers side is very thin structurally, just a thin fiberglass sheet covered by vinyl. It wouldn't support a desk.

Check out a JottoDesk. I had one about 11 years ago that I first installed in a Class C and it worked great. Porcelain tiles on the floors of the Class A's made it just about impossible to install, however, it might be installed on a seat support or a side wall. Very sturdy and very well made.

Here's an old thread with some discussion about adding one in a Sightseer.

Or maybe you could use Brave parts?

Thanks for the response.
It would need to be one that extended toward the seat.

Here's mine, made from 3/8" SS tubing. It's hard to see over the screen when driving down the highway though.

LOL! That's some serious multi-tasking.

Johndale, I got one of these in Nappanee

at
Focal Wood Products
Carlyle does great work, because he's about on hour away from me, we able to take a sample so he color matched and customized it to fit, I think a little taller and wider, we also had a magazine rack with a cup holder right behind the table, DW loves it

I fabricated a custom laptop holder. It swivels left and right and rotates. With the passengers seat forward it swings out far enough to use for typing and the mouse. The driver and passenger can also see the GPS and screen when moving.

It is not a generic purchase item but I hope this will give you ideas to fabricate your own.

I made up a piece of 3/4" oak plywood with oak edges, then clear coated it to match my cabinets. It is a triangle shaped thing with one end loped off, that I can pass my the passengers seat when turned.


Put a small folding leg on a hinge on the out side edge, again oak, for strength. I installed, glue and screw, an oak mounting strip just below the window frame and 1/16" thicker than the frame. It allows the window frame to remain removable for window service. I then attached the Oak ply with a piano hinge to the window mounting strip. I use to hook and loop to prevent the leg from rattling against the top. Hook and loop keeps the table top against the wall when in motion. Total thickness from the wall is 3/4 inch. Total cost about $50. Daughter used it for 3 years while home schooling while traveling as well as when in port.
