Any time I see an appendage mounted to the undercarriage, I think "road alligator attack" at 60 mph! Bob

That table isnt coming out! no way no how, and it isnt coming loose either. hehe!
It is just a major pain to load the table in the back of the truck, or in the trailer, but not anymore!

Another pretty cool 'fix'....However, what are you doing about protecting the table from debris?

Where'd you get the slides?

Hey Coop, anything that lowers the labor quotient, I'm ALL for it! And BTW, that sure is a clean looking install...was it of your own design?

I'd love to come up with something that clean looking for an unmounted spare tire that none of our compartments will handle(22.5). I don't think I have the ground clearance your TT has...still looking between the frame though. Enjoy your labor saver. Bob

They are conveyor rails, I purchased from my work, and the aluminum was bent on a break, and then tig welded.
I will just wipe the table down, no big deal, I could always put a nylon mesh over it if it becomes too troublesome to clean.
Time will tell.

Yep, I designed and built the complete thing other than the rails.
It will be much better than hauling it in and out of the trailer, or truck bed.

The next project will be a quick release for the sattelite dome, it will attach to the roof rear carrier rack, and if something is obstructing the field of view, then I can pull the quick pins and remove it from the roof, and set it anywhere I need to get a clear signal.
I will post picture of the attachment.
