Camp Table ideas?
 
I am currently looking for a good compact camping table and have not found anything that looks like it would last very long. Any ideas?

"Compact" can mean a lot of things.

I have had mine for 4 years or so...

Roll-A-Table
 
I have used roll-a-tables for field work and personal camp use for about 7 years and have found them to be extremely durable and sturdy.

You can find them at REI and CampMor

I worked on a native fish field team on the Colorado River for 3 years and we were on the river almost every week camping and working. Loading up we'd throw these tables into the boats/trucks and out on the lake we'd throw them out onto the rocky/sandy beaches where we were working. We'd use them for processing large fish up to 3' long and we'd use them for cooking. They've got a handy mesh pocket to store the legs and to hold stuff while you're cooking. These are awesome tables.

This is the one I use, it fits inside a pelican 1650 and is close in height to 2 stacked 1650's. It's very small, but gets the job done. If I pull the pelican's out of the truck I have a large work area between them and the table.

I sort like a larger table so that I can sit, eat, and even cooking in a standing position comfortably.



REI used to carry this table, but I checked and it's no longer listed.
Check out: http://www.shop.com/op/~Rio_Collapsi...-prod-32021751

When it's all packed up, its size is comparable to a folding chair.

I think the perfect combination is one large cooking/serving table, and at least one of the mini tables, depending on how large the group is.

One a recent trip we rolled with three tables.

The blue one shown above, one like sheki's and another that looked like an older version of it.

check it blee.

I like the large table (of which I bought 2) except....it does not fit in my 1650 Pelican Case.

I think that's the same table we have:





We got ours at REI a few years ago. If it is the same table, it fits into a Pelican 1650 with padded divider:




There's also room in there for a cutting board, grill/griddle, knife roll, lindal canisters, small Snow Peak cookset, and other appurtenances.

The table's legs fit into the bottom and there's still clearance for the Snow Peak Standard Model Two Burner:




The top of the table just barely fits:




I was going to cut the table if necessary, but it all just barely fits with no cutting at all.

That's a great looking kitchen setup

Those girls are pretty cute.

The guys kinda look like a bunch of dildos, but the talent is still there.

"dildos", "talent", my my Jack, dont hold back.


Loving the 1650 kitchen setup John
had a chat today w/ Ho about copying it:D

johnlee May 21st, 2007 04:23 PM

Oh yeah, go ahead and copy away.

Just don't forget the the yellow VB3 light for the field kitchen's lid:




Gotta have the kitchen light, and the VB3 clipped to the 1659 lid organizer is just perfecto.

marc olivares May 21st, 2007 04:55 PM

johnlee May 21st, 2007 05:13 PM

Man, get the Edge-Mags. Those plastic clamshells suck in comparison.

marc olivares May 21st, 2007 05:24 PM

I get a little feisty on fridays.

Since this is from 2007 I would like to see or hear about product failures, items that exceeded your expectations and updates you have made to your camp kitchens.

It's almost Friday. ;)

JSQ October 2nd, 2008 03:20 PM

I'm glad Sinuhe got a haircut.

montanablur October 2nd, 2008 04:25 PM

That and Ho throwing down the gauntlet on the ultimate table setup...


brianw November 12th, 2008 06:58 PM

You can always use one of your storage containers as a table. I like to minimize as much cargo as possible.
