The Camco bamboo table plays an essential role in our Ford Transit camper van conversion; we use it several times per day. It’s modular, functional and durable. After years of full time Van Life with it, it’s time for a review… Keep reading to learn more!

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.
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!):
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!):
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″:
The Camco bamboo table occupies that space in storage mode: 31.45″ long x 23.6″ wide x 1.75″ deep:
How we use it
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!
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.

Our Camco bamboo table serves us well, but we also added a folding table. That’s useful when we both have to work simultaneously.
