How to Install an RV Table

All recreation vehicles need an RV table. So, how do you install a table inside an RV? The following article will highlight the steps needed to install an RV table.

Tools and Materials Needed:

  • RV Table
  • 2 hinges
  • Hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Pencil or chalk
  • Tape measure

Step 1 - Choosing a Pre-made RV Table and Space inside the RV

When choosing a pre-made RV table, ensure that the measurements will fit the minimal space inside your recreation vehicle.  You can also make one. Take note of the measurements of your table, the length and width. Before installing the RV table, you need to identify a space in the RV, usually against a bed platform or against a wall, this will enable your table to be hinged to that immovable wall.

Step 2 - Marking the Chosen Wall

Place 2 marks on the wall, with the same measurement as the width of your table. Ensure that the height of the marks is just right for your eating level when seated.

Step 3 - Installation of the Table

Attach the free end of the platform of the table to a hinge and attach the hinge to the exact marking on the wall. At the other end of the platform of the table is where the hinged table legs are attached. These hinges will ensure that your RV table is foldable. You can now use the table by opening it up just as you would open up a drawer and keep it flat on the wall when not in use.
