Looking for Drink Holder/Table for F53 V10 Engine Cover

I have tried doing searches both on the net and within IRV2. I'm looking for a Drink Holder / Table / Cell Phone holder / Center Console, that I can install on the engine cover of our 2014 Bay Star. I'm surprised they don't offer anything like this for the F53 Chassis.

Does anybody have any ideas where I could look for something?

I will watch this space as I need some ideas.

I built my own 10 years ago with 2 cup holders, coin tray, small safe that would hold lap top, passports and small 9mm. was covered with matching padded ultra leather with 12 volt multi plug on top.

Now wife wants it changed to fit a powered cooler with more space for storage on top. I do like the idea of room for a plate of snacks. I am looking for 4 cup holders, usb charger ports, and who knows what she may add lol
Will I need larger tires up front to carry the extra console weight

Google motorhome console or RV console or RV organizer console. There are a few plastic ones there. Good luck!

Page 5 of the brochure shows one that Newmar sells. There's two images of it, lowered for driving and raised opened up as a table.

And understand the engine cover does not come from Ford. Something that works in a Winnebago may not fit in a Newmar, and so on.

Newmar/Bay Star offers a great center console!

We are "this close" to pulling the trigger on a Bay Star Sport on the F53 chassis. They have an option for the center console which transforms into a great center table between captains chairs. You may be able to contact newmar and get the table.. the option is price at approx. $750. See this link and photos attached:

I made this one out of some Oak from the big box store. It's a big improvement over the plastic beverage tray that came with the motor home. I wouldn't want it any bigger, it's easy enough to bang a knee or a shin on it as is.

I just picked up one of these from Wal-Mart. It's nothing big or fancy.

The first owners of the coach built a carpet-covered shelf and attached it to the doghouse cover. It's about the size of a road atlas- maybe a little bigger. They bolted it on such that its rear edge lines up with the rear of the cover. It's turned out to be pretty handy as a small step (can reach into the AV cabinet) and a place to sit as I made modifications to the dash. Between that and the Rubbermaid "organizer" I'm hoping we have what we need. We'll know better after the next trip.
