Cheezy Folding Dinette Table legs

When I got my 2010 Forrest River Flagstaff the previous owner had installed a spreader on the cheezy aluminum folding dinette table lags to give it more stability, but it also kept the legs from folding and gave the table a nice dip in the middle. I removed the spreader thinking it wouldn't be that bad--Wrong! I quickly discovered why he had installed it, I couldn't even set the table up without the leg braces bending.

An online search brought me to this youtube VIDEO. Looked good so I ordered one from Factory RV Service. for $69 plus about $30 shipping to Maryland.

I removed the legs from the old table top, and screwed on the new leg assembly. Works great! Table is much more stable than before. OBTW the shipping weight of the leg assembly is 14 lbs.

I have no financial or other interest in Factory RV surplus or Miller Mfg.

There are a bunch of newer RV's using that leg assy. Looks nice, useable, but it has legroom problems!!! Way too many metal pieces getting in the way of your feet and legs when using dinette!!!

Arctic Fox (and probably others) use a mechanism where the table is mounted to the wall, and swings down to make the bed. No legroom problem!! But can't take outside if you want to.

Actually legroom not much different than the original, haven't used it much so far, but haven't noticed a problem (I'm 6' wife is 5'10"), probably not as good as a wall mounted fold down though. Only negative so far is leg assembly does limit what you can put under the table when in the down position--but that's an acceptable trade-off for me.

BUT it much sturdier than the original!

But like I said, I don't sell 'em. Just letting folks know that there is a better option for the collapsing table problem.
