Desperately need to come up with a solution for cup holders for the dinette while traveling. I have 2, sometimes 3, kids that sit at the dinette during travel, that need a place to put a cup so that it doesn't going flying around as I drive.
My current thinking is to make 2 holes in the dinette table and insert "Poker Table" style (inset) cup holders into the holes (the cup holder sits below the surface of the table, but the lip of the holder is on top). My thought is to do that on the aisle end of the table (2 of them), and maybe on the wall side, as well. Only problem with the wall side is that since the poker table style holders sit below the surface of the table, these might interfere with the lowering of the table (Hit the support bar). But I'm sure I can work around that. This technique is invasive...as permanent holes would have to be made in the dinette table.
Another option is to use clip-on cup holders that clip (like a clothes pin) onto the edge of the table, but they seem much less secure.
I guess the question is...do I want to make permanent holes in my dinette table (which could also interfere with eating), or have something less sturdy like the clip-on, but which has no modification to the table?
So, I'm curious, is anyone doing anything like this, or have another solution?
