    Table Warped / Bowing

    Howdy all... After about three months since our last trip, I set up the trailer this weekend to find our table has warped. I’ve not been collapsing it when not in use, but wouldn’t have expected this. Anyone else have an issue like this?

    Hopefully the attachment works - attempting to upload from my phone while enjoying the great (but chilly) outdoors!

    Have a great weekend, all.

    Best,
    -Sam

    Wouldn't it be funny if it was designed like that... I wonder what caused that?

    This is a common problem for all brands. Humidity and heat together cause it. The humid air cannot pentrate the top surface due to the top being non porus. It can only penetrate the bottom. This causes it to warp. As a prevenative measure some have put formica etc on the bottom to seal it up with good results.

    Once it has already happened, it can be brought under control by removing the hardware and weighting it down to force it slowly back into shape. Then attach reinforcements of your choice on the bottom to keep it straight. I had some 2x2 Aluminum angle 1/4" thick handy, so that is what I used.
