    We have a compact table with island leg in our Arto 69GL. It replace the rather large heavy dropleaf original. I would however like a small extension large enough to use my dinner plate whilst sat on the L part of the settee. A drop leaf is the easiest solution but would inhibit the seating access to the settee. Our friends have a Hymer bar version the table has a pull out section that sits flush with the main table. A mini version would be ideal but don't know whether the tracks are available or where to get them or how to improvise. My Husband is very handy with wood etc. Help anyone please.

    make a flap to go the opposite way to normal when not in use it would flap back onto the top of the existing obviously you need to finish the surface on both sides a pair of slide out supports on the bottom of the original table would hold it in place same as a normal drop flap

    Thanks. We have thought of that as we saw a few at Dusseldorf show. But they had one either end so the both flapped over. He's trying a standard drop leaf a little narrower than the original to minimise the obstruction. I was hoping so.eone would know of a supplier of the fittings to replicate the pull out system in the Hymer but on a smaller scale.
