User kconley at the FiberglassRV forum wanted to mount an outdoor table to his 16′ fiberglass Casita Spirit Deluxe trailer. He didn’t want to cut into the fiberglass shell though.
With a sheet of 1/2″ plywood, some rubber strips, and a wooden brace, he fashioned a folding table that wedges in between the tire and wheel well of his trailer.
The table takes only seconds to install and take down.
A single piece of wood supports the weight of the table.
There’s no need to mess around with a level. If the camper is level, so is the table!
These rubber treads catch on the trailer tire, preventing the table from wobbling or slipping out of position.

Here’s what he had to say about how the table has been holding up,
I have not had a problem with it popping out when going in & out. I can use it in any position parked or on leveling jacks. I’m 280lbs. & when I go in or out it dosen’t move enough to make a difference… I’ve taken some pics of the back to show the stick support, just a piece of wood to come against & I put little round rubber strips to catch the tire treads to prevent it from popping out. I also put a little rubber bumper on the bottom of support stick that goes against the wheel. It is 1/2″ ply with some left over flooring I put down in the casita, the snap fit stuff glued to the ply….
Maybe you could modify the design to fit other types of trailers? What do you think about using a removable outdoor table like this with your rig?
