Features


What we like about our Camco bamboo table (See on Amazon) is its simplicity; there’s no fancy mechanism or such. The features are: bamboo tabletop, folding legs, telescoping legs, leveling foot pads and carrying handle.

Bamboo TableTop

The tabletop is made out of bamboo. It’s attractive (in our opinion!), durable, yet light weight type of “wood” (bamboo is actually a grass with wood characteristics!):

Folding Legs

The legs of the Camco bamboo table are made out of aluminum. They fold on themselves, so that the table can be stored neatly (or can be used in weird places!):

Telescoping Legs

The legs are telescoping and have two positions. At the lowest position (short legs), the tabletop is about 18″ from the ground. At the highest position (long legs), the tabletop is about 26″ from the ground.

Leveling Foot Pads

The foot pads are leveling (to prevent rattling), but we honestly don’t really use that feature. Be aware that the foot pads might get loose and fall off while driving; to prevent that, we recommend screwing them all the way in.

The tabletop is 31.45″ long x 23.6″ wide. The height of the table can be adjusted to ~18″ or ~26″:

Storage

During our van build, there was a lot of “what are the odds??!!” moments, and finding out that the table fitted PERFECTLY between the couch and the fridge was definitely one of these moments!

Long Term Review


We’ve been using the Camco bamboo table FULL TIME since 2017, and it still looks and operates like new. It’s a simple and reliable piece of gear and we expect it to last for a loooooong time!

Conclusion


We REALLY love that we can use our table inside AND outside; we take advantage of that very often. If this table fits your needs and your layout, we highly recommend it! We would definitely buy it again if we had to start over.

NICE TO MEET YOU.

About-Us-Narrow

Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine 🙂 In 2017, we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers, and moved into our self-built campervan. We’ve been on the road since then, and every day is an opportunity for a new adventure; we’re chasing our dreams, and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!

Heads up! As of summer 2021, we are currently travelling to Yukon (and hopefully Alaska) and have very limited access to Internet. As a result, we might not be able to answer all comments. Thanks for understanding and see you on the road! -Isabelle and Antoine

  1. Yes, those little feet like to come off and wander around the van. I finally gave the threads on the end of the screw an ever-so-light crimp with a vice-grip, problem solved.
