Down for travel makes sense to me as it does wobble some when upright.

I'd like to know how weeblo shimmed it up to keep it solid.

I never put the table down on my old trailer and never had a problem, even on mountain forest access roads.

I have to put it down on my new trailer of course as the slide passes right over top of it.

At our demo we were told to always break it down into "bed mode" and stow the legs in the bench seat storage. We've always done it that way & never had a problem. If we left it up, the table top would rub against the wall and most likely scuff up the wall.

The table in our 19H was very wobbly right from the day we took it off the lot. We were complete newbies and didn't know that we should have questioned it. It's an 8 hour drive to the dealer so it's just something we learned to cope with. Sometimes we traveled with it in bed mode, but when we didn't we made sure to have enough stuff on the benches and between the posts and base of the benches to minimize the wobbliness - stuff like pillows, bedding, the dog bed and the extra memory foams we had to use as the cushions for the beds were less than ideal.

After my last 300 miles I have decided to keep it in the down position!!! It is now loose at the wall bracket, should have learned my lesson and listened to a seasoned RV'r.

Our 23B has a freestanding. While traveling we leave it down made up as a bed. We most often turtle someplace enroute to our destination and is just more convenient that way.
