Repair Dinette Table

We own an Itasca Navion with the dinette configuration. The dinette table that came with the unit is essentially 2 thin pieces of plastic with a styrofoam center.

When the motorhome was fairly new, we managed to pull the table from the brackets connecting it to the wall. We used plastic inserts which we pushed into the styrofoam to enable the screws to tighten. This fix has held for several months. Recently, we noticed that the screws are again pulling from the table. The dinette doubles as a second bed, so the table is constantly unhooked and lowered.

Can someone suggest a more permanent way to reinforce the table and keep it connected to the bracket?

No more stiff leg under the dinette table with the Dream Table conversion. Truly a one handed operation if you wish, but fast and easy one or two handed

They say to reinforce the wall it's to be mounted to, I just used a piece of 1/4" aluminum plate cut to size and screwed it to the wall (I also used a few extra screws) to spread the weight around. I used some glue on floor tiles that closely matched the wall paper to cover the exposed aluminum and for all practical purposes you can't tell the difference.

The table now no longer squeaks or wiggles when using the table.

The cost is reasonable and I got a little tour of their facility while I was there as well.
