Question Outdoor Countertop Table

Hi All,

I'm looking for an outdoor counter/shelf that I can mount on the outside of my RV. I know Thule used to make the Smart RV Countertop but has since discontinued them. That's pretty much what I am looking for. Does anyone know of an alternative? I liked the fact that the Thule one was weather resistant plastic. If anyone has some ideas please post. I'll try to upload a photo of what I had in mind. Thanks.

Does it have to attach to your RV? Why not just use a small folding table?

I have the outdoor sink but the mounts went with my old RV. I planned to buy new mounts but can't find them any more. I am looking for the mounts.

I've made a couple of tables for my RV and kids. My kids bought new RV's so they asked for another table. My local RV store sells the old hardware of two aluminum strips that interlock (how the old interior tables use to drop down and lock to the wall).

I cut a table the size I need out of plywood and then cab with a piece of formica. I then use the same molding on the outer edge that is used to trim the edge fo trailers (aluminum molding with vinyl insert). This trims the edge nicely and matches the trailer. I connect one of the interlocking arms to the side of the trailer (paint to match color) and the other piece mounts on the back edge of the shelf. I make a support arm that quick pins to the bottom of the shelf and and a catch on the bottom of the trailer. Sounds complicated, but pretty easy to make.

Come-on guys! You KNOW that selling is NOT ALLOWED in the forums! Do your sales via PM or Classified Ads.

The messages concerning sales will be deleted (and are probably already gone by the time you see this).

Come on, I am not placing an add, just that I am looking for mounts or I may some day sell it. I want to find mounts or it is not of value. I am not posting an add. I am hopping someone knows where the mounts can be found.

Do I really need to walk on egg shells in my comments? My post was in no way ment as an add. It is frustrating that thule stopped making the parts needed.

I don't know what they are talking about either! I only asked you if you still had yours? I never asked for you to sell yours. Really?????

Not your messages, Taz. Four messages were removed, none of them by you. They were an offer to sell a table and responses to that offer.

Peewee - I will contact you privately.

Ok Gary. I was taken aback when I thought I was implicated.

Because Thule stopped making that shelf, I kept the shelf from my old one. I found the "anchor Pods" here.
Thule SMART RV Accessories | RV Accessories, RV Parts & RV Supplies | RvSupplyWarehouse.com
I did read that someone said that they have a new supplier (for the shelf) "coming soon" but I lost that link and can't find it.
We love that shelf--can't believe they stopped making it.

One alternative I was contemplating when we had our TT was to use the BBQ mount that was attached to the side of the trailer. Using one or more could give you the length you need, then attach a shelf to the mounting arms used for the BBQ. I think they still sell those pieces.
