Hi, Ya'll and greetings from Bar Harbor, ME!

About a year or so, I remember seeing instructions on how to make one of those round decorator tables attached to the MH Steering Wheel. Camping World sells them for a "pretty penny", but I think (if I recall) they're very easy to make using one of those store bought round tables from WM that run under $7.

Would appreciate the instructions, or directions on where to find them.

Thanks!

Hi Cheri and Ron,

Yes you can build them cheaper. Go to kmart or walmart and look for those round tables with 3 legs. I think I paid 8.95 for mine. Next go to Lowes or Home Depot and get 1 1/4-20 threaded rod, about 12 1/4 nuts, 6 flat washers and 1 3' 3/4" x 3/4" square stock. Turn the table over and mark each mounting bracket 1, 2, & 3. Now when you tilt the stearing wheel all the way up, it's still not level, so to make the table level you do this. The bracket marked #1 you point towards the front. Now cut 3 - 6" long pieces from the wood bar. Drill a 1/4 hole oh about 1" from one end. Put a level on the table and lift the back end till the table is level. Measure one of the back legs to see how long of a piece of threaded rod you will need and cut 3. Now comes the fun part.

For the rear two, run a nut up, a washer then one of the square rod, washer and finally a nut. You adjust this mess till you have the table level. Oh, also on the other end of the threaded rod you also put a nut. This is used to keep the 1/4 rod from coming out of the bracket. Now do the same for the other rear one. Also mark the wood foot #1, #2, & #3, so you put them in the correct location. Now the rear two will sit on top of the steering wheel and the fron one will go underneath the wheel to lock it in place. Get a round table cloth and top piece, put a lamp on it and there you have it.

Right now were sitting at home, I just got out of the hospital Wednesday after major surgery on my right catroid artery. It had a 90% blockage. Caught it in time. So not traveling for a while. We love Tennessee and we don't plan on moving again. Will do some traveling but no more moves. Stop up some time, I can fit you next to my rig. Drop me a line at renegades9@earthlink.net and I'll pass on the new address and phone numbers. Hope the instructions help out. I figured Ron will make you build it. Take care and happing camping.

Hey, Jim and Doreen:

Glad to hear you are happy in TN and enjoying the area. Sorry though, to hear about your surgery. Praise the Lord, it was caught in time. Hope you're on your way to a speedy recovery.

We've been in Bar Harbor, ME since the 5th of June and on the road since April 5th. We are loving it. I'm not quite ready to give up our home, but I could stay on the road forever!

We've met a lot of very nice workkampers here and it's fun to do things with them since we all have so much in common.

One of these days we'll make it to TN and for sure stop and see you. Are you building a house or did you buy one? I can't remember.

Take care and thank you so much for the instructions on the table.

God bless!

Hi Cheri,
In the next few days I'll take a few pictures and email them to you. Send me your email address to renegades9@earthlink.net. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Have fun. We are thinking of making a trip to Connecticut this fall but will wait and see for now. I still need surgery on my right leg.

Later

I bought a round top from Lowe's. Cut a piece about 3" wide by about 8". Connected to table top with hinge. Used three mop hanger brackets to snap on the steering wheel. Had to spread them out a little but this works pretty good. We only put a small lamp on it so it is for looks.
