OH, and the author cautioned all readers to be sure and remove the tabletop from the steering wheel prior to driving away............����
I saw the article and am in the process of making it. So simple too!

Just found the article, it had pictures but they won't load.

Steering Wheel Desk

When my grandchildren are visiting, a little extra space is needed for my PC or for eating, so I made a steering wheel desk for my motorhome. I cut a piece of scrap T-11 plywood siding 1 inch wider than the wheel and 1 inch lower than the height of the wheel. I positioned the plywood on the wheel where I wanted it and outlined the wheel using a pencil. I cut two pieces of wood, each 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch by 2 inches, and glued them to the back of the plywood at the 2 o’clock and 10 o’clock positions; this allows the desk to rest on the wheel and not move. I then cut a piece of wood, 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch by 17 inches, and glued it to the bottom front of the desk to keep things from sliding off. I stained the desk and applied polyurethane. The desk is thin and stores next to the driver’s seat. Of course, it should not be used when the motorhome is moving.

Hey Joe,

I've been using this one for 12 years or so. Seems a little pricy but works like a charm.

Probably Home Depot. I think they are tool/broom holders.

DH attached 3 of them to a cheap particle board round table from Walmart. He cut the legs that came with the top to different lengths & screwed the clamps into the ends that made it flat when the steering wheel was in it's "perfect" position. We did add some foam tape to the inside of the clamps to prevent scratches & help with slipping.

Don,

I googled "grip clip" I think it was from an "Ace Hardware" ad.
