    I'm looking online for replacement tables for my camper and have had no luck. Anyone know were I can buy them, one is 3 foot by 30 inch. I was thinking of something plastic. Thanks

    Do you still have the legs that were on the original one? If you do, I made a new top for mine and covered it with Formica. I used 3/4 plywood and it is a lot better than the original one.

    Happy Camping!

    I agree with LAGrill... just build one. I gave up on trying to find a replacement and just built a new one (3/4 inch plywood) that is a whole lot stronger than the original. I got the damaged sheet of cabinet grade plywood for 5 bucks at Lowes (a forklift had punched one side of it... there was plenty of good wood left for the table). A little stain and polyurethane and you're done.

    I agree with both of them. Mine isn't as nice as Tekboy's, but it's nicer than the original.

    My local RV stores carry them.

    I still have the post/leg for the table. It looks easy to make the table. I'll give it a try and see what I come up with.

    make sure you keep the track that mounts it onto the back wall, too!

    another option, is to go to your local home improvement store that sells countertops, and look at their 'oops' bin. I have seen a number of really nice, CUSTOM COLOR/FINISH, countertops at my store and others, for $20 or less. Often mis-cuts for breakfast bars, with rounded ends, and 3 already finished sides and ends that would make excellent camper table replacements. All you would have to do is cut them to the right length, and mount the hardware!

    I got a long, regular piece to use to replace all my cabinet tops last fall, and stored it with my camper - with pretty oak-trim beveled edges in a custom textured finish - for $10. then early this spring, I had my eye on a matching laminate breakfast bar piece to make a new table out of, but a customer beat me to it before payday - darn!

    but it's a popular pattern in our custom laminate line, so I'm sure another will show up at one of our stores, soon. Actually, there are a couple nice mis-cuts in our store right now - they just don't match the piece I already have, and my table is fine - it would just look nicer if it matched the countertops.

    For others looking to dress up their old camper laminate - there's a new product out by Rustoleum - Counter-top paint. http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=208
    I work in the paint dept, and we've had a number of customers try this product and they have been very happy with the results. If you're looking to update your color scheme, but don't want to replace your countertops, this might be an ideal, inexpensive solution for campers.
