    First I removed the edge trim from the curved divider panel.

    Then planed the curve flat and level, I had to then deepen the rebate for the trim to go back

    At this stage no one would know any difference.

    I had an old Rapido folding dining table as I secured a new one cheap. So the base piece that goes on the table leg is what I have used to make the elevated work surface.
    I cut it down in width(faced the cut with aluminium) so it would not be too big in either direction i.e.over the sink and the seating headrest. I then cut a slot as wide at the partition edging strip.

    This is held in place by inserting this stuff in the gap either side once the top is in position.

    This is easy to remove but we leave it permanently in place. Any suitable wood could be used for a temporary shelf.

    I have recently viewed some 2014 spec Rapidos and I'm pleased to see that the idea in principal has been adopted "the cheek" I wonder how much notice the Rapido organisation take of the French forum "forum of the friends of campingcar Rapido" I got the idea there originally myself.
    My van is far superior to the issue they published in 2008 by a very long way :p
