No, it's another piece of rail matching what came on it that I screwed to the side.I did some careful measuring and found a dinette seat brace directly behind where the rail would fit. Also used a stud finder, which was not be very accurate. Of the four screws used to fasten it, three hit the wood. Note that I had to use long screws to reach, and was very careful not to go through some where I didn't want them to since the screws were actually going through the wall to the brace inside the TT. Our floor plan allowed the rail to line up directly in front of the existing rail, so it looks like one piece. Also, the table isn't heavy, nor do we over load it. You may have to use an alternate fastening system on yours, so the screws go into more than just the outside skin.

I worded my question wrong...I already have the rail on the trailer mounted there by the factory. I was wondering how you attached the table to that rail. Is it a store bought bracket or something you made?

Bankr63 - how do the arms from the bracket attach to the wood? Did you drill holes in the side, mount some type of tube underneath? Or is it just sitting there?

On the RV net forum, there is a very detailed description of a great table modification that someone did. He used adjustable paint handle extensions as legs for his table (adjust to uneven ground) so that he can load up the table with heavy items. One side attaches to the trailer, the other is supported by the paint handle legs. Here's a photo of the finished project:

I had an old tent trailer that had a table you could take out and attach on the side of the trailer it had a track on one edge similar to the bbq mounts today and also had single leg that swings down to support the side not attached to the trailer. I think I would rather have a leg that comes down than to be totally suspended off the wall. I'm sure it would be easy to make one.

Sorry I misunderstood your question. The rail on the table is actually the wall side of these brackets, screwed to the table. Because of my design expertise (or severe lack-there-of), the table has to slide onto the TT bracket, not drop down onto it, like our stove does. Name:  00179326.jpg

Size:  12.2 KB The underside support is a piece of 1/2" PVC, that just sits against a screw recess on the wheel trim. The PVC attachment on the table side is just a mix of a mini-blind support bracket, and a plastic dowel in a PVC end cap. If I can figure out how to attach my own pictures here, I'll do so if you're interested. Like I said before, this was just made out of scrap stuff I had laying around the shop. The only parts purchased were the actual mounting rails.
