    This was Andy's @Techno original idea and I shamelessly copied it.. :D

    I removed the big Hymer table last year and had tried a few other table ideas.. including legs on the original table.. but it was still too big and had to be stored.. it wasn't a great success..

    Then we tried a small folding aluminium table.. not great , it got in the way and was too small.. also a trip hazard.

    Then I saw Andy's 'boom arm tables' . and the rest as they say is history..

    Not a cheap option.. legs cost £95 each.. but IMO worth every penny .. top quality aluminium legs with cast aluminium brackets.. they are rock solid.. no sway, no tilt..

    Table tops are bamboo chopping boards from Ikea £4.95 each ( another Andy idea)

    Pictures show as side tables.. ideal for a cuppa and a snack and in the 'eat a meal' or as laptop table position.

    Very pleased.. they really do work well and I think look great..

    Looks a decent solution
    Do the arms stay in place when travelling or swing around ?

    Doesn't have to be a Hymer. Suitable for almost any van

    Nice job Jim, but why do you keep a couple of sheep in the cab area? Doesn't the 'baaaing' keep you awake at night?
