2001 Sportsmobile EB-51's Rickety Table


I just purchased a used 2001 Ford EB250 Sportsmobile model EB-51.

The table, comes in three pieces (top, leg pole, and mount with three feet), that comes with 2001 Sportsmobile EB-51 is really rickety .

I am use to the Westfalia where the table swings out from the side of the back bench on a post attached solidly to the cabinetry.

Does anybody recommend another narrow table that fits well (and possibly securely) within the Sportsmobile EB-51?

That table should be pretty stable. I've found it to be rickety when the center pole is not pushed into either the table or the legs far enough. You need to push down on the table when it's set up and wiggle the table top. Then it should settle into the leg and top sockets and be nice and tight. You also have to wiggle it a lot to get it unplugged for storage.

You can be anything you want on the Internet,
it amazes me that so many choose stupid....

If the table won't get stable when the leg is pushed into both sockets, then the leg is bent out of round on one or both ends.

You should be able to get one from any RV parts place or SMB.
