Ingenious Transforming Table: For Coffee or Dining, It Can Handle It All

When you find an item that has multiple uses for your RV, you feel great. With space being so limited in a camper, items simply have to be foldable or do double duty to make the packing list.

Many of the products and ideas that work well in small apartments translate well to RV life. Today we have an incredible idea from Duffy London, a London based furniture “wizard” well-known for their revolutionary designs. They’ve created a transforming table design that quickly changes from a coffee table to a full-size dining table.

A transforming table is perfect for the small space of an RV. Though it seems at first look to be a complicated piece of furniture, it’s actually quite simple to operate.

It takes just one person to transform the table from a one person coffee nook to a properly sized dining area. This process take just seconds, and if you have room for a table, this could be one of the most adaptable items you use on an RV trip. You might be able to add a cushion to the top and use it as an ottoman, too.

Duffy is committed to environmental friendly materials and high quality construction – which makes the price tag sting a little at over $1,200. It’s enough to steer me into my wood shop, but maybe you feel differently.

Do you think you could make something similar? It seems that the tricky part is cutting the angled braces. Otherwise, there’s just a few simple hinges holding the whole thing together.
