Exterior Table Mounted to BBQ Track

Hi, everyone.

This mod is early in the idea phase. I don't know where to start to get the right parts to do the job right. So I'm posting the idea hoping y'all might have suggestions.

In intend to fabricate a table that mounts on the exterior of my X23b where the barbecue grill mounts. The outboard end of the table will be 2 adjustable length legs that fold out similar to those on a card table.

Q1: I can find the RV BBQ/Accessory mounting rail online. But is there a counterpart that is designed to match up to it? I want to ensure a snug fit so the table doesn't get bumped and popped off.

Q2: What would you recommend for legs? I'm thinking adjustable tent poles so that the legs can always be solid on the ground.

For a visual of what I'm trying to build, see the Thule 5532 Smart RV table. The key difference is mine will work as both a standalone table, and be mountable on the camper side (since I'm really just adding the bracket on one side).

Your thoughts?

Rusty-- just buy a pup table, it will have the bracket that matches up the the bbq bracket. My last jayco pup (1986) had a table with an adjustable leg and I used it outside all the time. Larry

Any suggestions on where to find a "Pup" table? Google keeps suggesting POP table. Grr. Figures that what I thought to be a cool idea has already been done by someone else. But...that also means I don't have to spend time fabricating one.

Rusty-- I know the tables exist all rv dealers must have them for the popups, but if you can't find oner look under " rv parts direct" for the stuff you will need except for the plywood. (Adjustable leg and the wall / table bracket). Larry ps I'll never tell her that the idea has been done buy someone else

I'm a late joiner to the forum, read this post and happened across a part that might work for this idea.

I have thought about this what else could we use the track for.

When you look up to purc hase the grill track it states it will hold a grill other accessories but I can not find other items for purchase to use in the slot

Any ideas on items you can purchase. we have thought about making a drying rack for towels to put in the slot.

The grill track on our PUP holds the grill and a small table. Pretty nice.

I have the RVQ grill. This thread has got me thinking about fashioning a table or counter-top that would use the RVQ's mount. Just swap the table for the grill or vice-versa. Plus it would only be the table top itself so it could store almost anywhere.

If you do fab a table top up. Post a write up and pics of how you mounted it. I've been thinking of something similar. Possibly using a quick clamp system like the lighting that clamps to the tent extension bars in the bunk area.
