Default Dash board mount table ??

My 2008 sprinter LT freespirit 210B has been modified to a sports gear hauler with a raised bed at counter height hence we have no sofa or table anymore. It only took one trip with the sofa to decide it had to go..now we sleep on a 8" Tempurpedic and have huge storage space under it which holds a garage full of assorted gear.

Most of the time this is not a problem as we have a popup screen tent (clamshell) we through up over a picnic table in a few seconds but the there are time when it would be nice to have a smaller ( big enough for crib board and a couple of wine glasses) dash mounted table for those times when this is not possible (Walmart lots etc) I don't want a floor mount as getting in and out of the seats would be nearly impossible. I will likely design my own but always open to ideas of others..Has anyone built such a beast that would be fairly compact when stored, yet solid enough in use that a bump would not result in spilled drinks?

Have you seen Lagun mount, I don't know if it can work for you, but it is an idea. http://www.classbforum.com/forums/f8...able-7407.html

Looks interesting but I really have nowhere to mount the base other than the base of the passenger seat which would interfere with the swivel function. I was thinking more about something that would mount higher close to the dash center so we could easily get in and out of the front seats which would be turned to the center

Windrat - I have been struggling with this as well. Frankly I had put it on the back burner until I had a thought while reading this thread. It struck me the motion required is like a airline table that folds and drops into the arm rest. So I googled, found a place on Ebay that sells parts from retired planes and bought a table assy from a 737 for $75. When I get it next week, I'll consider the mounting options. We have swivels as well. Seat, door, and possibly something up front. I'll post some pictures as I go and will certainly be looking for input

Default sounds good

i will have to take a look at that option ...mounting locations is the tough one

I am considering a dash mount supported from the overhead trays with a solid rod in order to keep the under table area clear and allow access to the seats with the table in place. the table would be wider at the front and well above knee height

Will be interested to see what you come up with.

Default Somewhat confused

So it appears that you're looking for a solution both for when you're traveling (spilling drinks over bumps) and while at a campsite? I agree that there's little legroom when camping and the seats are swiveled. Probably less in my 97 PW than in yours. Have you looked into a cooler between seats while you're traveling? Some that plug into the 12v "cig" lighter could provide both cooling for drinks/sandwiches while in route and a place to set them. Wouldn't work easily at a site, though. My 97 still has the engine hump and a tray above. That can be easily extended to provide room for a tray. I have some folding cup holders on the doors that give additional beverage storage.
