    Been trying to work out good table options. I don't think I will be using a fixed table much, but it is a requirement for Motor Caravan classification, so has be available.

    I think I have come up with a solution. And this is the photo I will be sending to DVLA ...

    This shows the table on the removable post so attached to the vehicle as per DVLA requirements. But it is actually a standard Lifetime Table from Costco with folding legs, so can be used as normal and saves having to carry around a plain tabletop just for occasional use.

    I also got round to cutting the 15 carpet offcut I bought a month ago to suit the living area ...

    Need to make a hole for the table leg of course. And need to decide where to trim the cab end. Probably will cut to put under the end trim piece.

    Also need to add a small section around the step threshold (the offcut width was just too narrow to cover that part as well ) but pretty pleased with how it looks for the price (this is a build on a budget!)

    Daft Mod time :)

    So I fitted this table leg kit a week ago or so and used a Costco table as a top

    Travelling a few thousand miles south, a TV Programme I enjoyed watching was "Sea Patrol", a drama based around a ship in the Royal Australian Navy. and in Series 2 they got a new ship, and on the Bridge of that new ship they seem to have what looks to me like a Cat Scratching Post

    From the first time I noticed that, I thought it would be great to have some kind of scratching post in my Camper for the cat, who loves her scratching post AND loves chilling out in the van.

    So moving back to this afternoon, I can now reveal my own weird update

    It kinds of matches in better with the general planned Safari theme of the van rather than a chrome pole as well


    Oh, and an under table shot to show how the table itself is dual purpose

    The original legs are still fitted and functional, and the post mount is secured in place by both Sikaflex Adhesive and Bobby Ball (short and fat) Screws, plus the legs when closed go over around 30% of the mount surround which also keeps things nice and tight.
