Hello - our RW had a fixed table that did not swivel, nor could itbe removed. We decided we would like to have the option to remove the table and support as an option for more floor space for music equipment and the wife's area for painting. So I decided to tackle the option to remove the table and store it. I ended up removing the table from the support and made a 3 sided track out of 1/2 inch aluminum channel. I made the 4th aluminum track easy to remove with 2 knob screws. I mounted the aluminum channel pieces to 3/4 x 2 inch hardwood and glued and screwed the pieces on to the wood base plate on the table. So now the table will slide off the wall/floor mount. The table can be put on in either direction as well.

Next I removed the welded aluminum wall/floor mount. This requires removing ~16 screws on the wall and 6 on the floor. I also had to pull up a small piece of carpet that covers the base on the floor. Next I drilled out 6 holes in the aluminum mount on the wall side so 10/32 x 1 inch knob screws would fit. I also drilled out 4 holes in the aluminum mount floor end so 1 inch screws would fit. The next step was to enlarge the receiving holes in the wall and floor and then epoxy the flange nuts and hammer them into place. The last thing I did was screw down 2 strips of Velcro on the floor and riveted 2 Velcro strips on the carpet flap so it can easily be pulled up and tacked back down when removing or replacing the aluminum wall/floor mount. It was a bit of work, but it turned out real nice. Remove 6 knobs screws from the wall, lift up the carpet flap and use a coin to back out 4 screws in the floor and your table post is removed.

We opted to order our unit with the True Free Standing table that normally goes into the FL. Works for us allowing movement of the table to make room for Cat Furnituresince we travel with 4 American Shorthair show Cats.

Ours is the true free standing table that usually goes into the FLs (we special ordered it for our RL), so we have complete flexability to position it in either direction. It was exactly what we wanted, so we're happy with ours.

I wish they would put a "Modifications" category on this forum. So many of us personalize our trailers or make make small modifications to address some need or want. It would be nice to have a designated place to post them... oh well. As they say.. wish in one hand..
