New Tables and Lagun Mounting System

2015 Lance 855S

I removed the stock table in my Lance 855S and the area instantly changed into a family room. I can now walk into this area without having to slide my legs under a table. This simple change made the whole inside of the camper appear larger.

I asked myself, do we even need a table? After some thought, I decided yes, but not all the time and certainly not one so large.

To determine size, I experimented with cardboard templates. I decided that a 19-inch by 26-inch table was large enough for the two of us, and it will store upright against the exterior wall when a table isn’t needed.

Upon further thought, I decided we might want a small table or shelf for coffee or drinks. So, I made a second table approximately 8-inches by 17-inches in size for those occasions. The larger table stores upright below the small one.

I made my new tables from some attractive oak-trimmed Formica left over from our granite remodel at home. I also installed two power-USB ports under the table for charging phones and using laptops.

To attach the tables, I decided on a Lagun mounting system. There is no leg to hit my knee and it rotates, providing multiple positions. In addition, it’s easy to remove and store.

It took me approximately 20 hours to complete this modification and cost me $50. In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is hard.
