BYOT (Bring Your Own Top) Side Table Arm


Versatile side table arm uses a top you supply.



Bring Your Own Top (BYOT) Side Table Arm
We’ve been using the first version of this table arm for years and it’s one of the handiest accessories in the whole camping quiver. Some equipment gets brought along and rarely used, but this gets used at every overnight and even some lunch stops. Sets up in seconds for a nice side table in the most convenient spot for serving drinks and snacks, or cooking with the camp stove. It clears the sliding door, so at bedtime it can be left up, waiting to help with the coffee when you greet the day.
The top clamp firmly grips the edge of a tabletop you supply, from 1/4″ to 1″ thick. Now Westy owners can use their camper tabletops outside too without the ungainly tubular arm. Or a plastic or wood cutting board like the one shown. Whatever reasonably sized flat panel you want to use. That scrap of plywood could become one of your favorite bits of van-camping kit.
We’ve added several new features to make it even more useful:
-Now attaches rigidly to front or rear jack receiver.
-Has a tilt adjustment to plumb the table stem.
-The table stem has 6 inches additional height adjustment.
-In the front jack point and with a lower height setting, it even clears the front door. Great for unloading things from your cooler.
-The edge clamp can be detached from the table stem and stay with your top if desired.
-The folded arm locks to the clamp for a neat package, with or without your top still attached.
-There’s even a little hook on the stem for hanging things, like a trash bag, in a convenient place.
In development is an adapter to use the arm in 2″ hitch receivers. Watch this space.
