The beauty of this leg, Lagun, is it allows the table to pivot and rotate.

Image

The top arm pivots on the main leg

Image

And then the bracket for the table mount can rotate on the end of the top arm

Image

Or the leg can slide of the bottom mounting plate and the whole table removed

With the original table top attached to the top bracket, we have a table and we also have the clear floor space and maneuvering room we wanted. As the leg was mounted to one side of the dining area, the table top was mounted to the top bracket equal across the table top, but offset length ways which allows numerous options for the table position. Ranging from the conventional table, offset conventional table, extended trifold type table, closed trifold type table, to out of the way table, still allowing room for others.

Oh yes we do have cushions for the lounge, we just hadn't put the covers back on after Jan had to wash them and give them the stain and water treatment.

Really happy with this set up. The Lagun table leg is going to be well worth the extra dollars it cost but I reckon it is worth it. The three handles on the leg allow you to either tighten or loosen the leg to adjust height and rotation. Being a handle makes them very easy to use. simple turn the handle the desired direction to tighten or loosen the same way you do an conventional nut on a bolt. If the handle can not make a full 360 degree turn and you need to move the nut further, simply pull the handle out about 5mm and it allows the handle to be repositioned to turn the nut again, similar to using a conventional ring spanner. All very easy and simple to use and a very easy and convenient answer to our problem. We are more then happy with the Lagun table leg.

Wow mate, you've been busy!

A whole year without a post then BAM! Another three pages (full of pics too!) pop up!

Looks like you've got a lot of new trick bits in there - I'm impressed with that gas heating system! Will you be upgrading one of the gas bottles to a 70kg unit? :p

On our recent Nullarbor trip we came across an elderly couple with a blown out tyre on a single axle caravan. When I tried to jack it up my little red land rover bottle jack was a bit of hard work. When I asked them what they were carrying they said they had a dozen cases of wine from Margret River in the van. There was an insane amount of weight in there!

So my tip to you is, even if you can get good cheap wine (or car parts!), don't fill the van with them, then do a trans continental road trip on the speed limit!!

Looks like you'll get many years of use out of it - or mod it up neatly then pass it on for bigger/better unit ;)

Cheers

Bennie

Thanks Nig and Bennie.

Don't worry Bennie, don't intend to overload it, causes too many problems.

Just had our first outing in the van and I must say it seemed to work well.

Five nights and Jan said she didn't feel sore as she has done after other camping trips.

Photos to follow

Finally got around to using the van. Camped (somehow it just doesn't sound right to say you camped when you are in a caravan in a caravan park) Caravanned with The Phantom and Rat Patrol at Moonee Beach North Coast Holiday Park http://www.northcoastholidayparks.com.a ... onee-beach for five nights before the Easter onslaught. Was a great time. More pics to come.

Sorry mate have had a few distractions with the photos, slowly getting there.

As for if the bride was happy? Her comment when we got back home and unpacking things was something like, "We have been 'camping' for five nights and I am not sore", just about summed it all up. Still things we need to sort in the van and finish off but so far she is happy so all is good that way.

Sorry for the delay. one thing and another. Was good to have a even if it was only 15 minutes from start to stop.

Moonee Beach Caravan Park is the one we recommend to anyone wishing to stay in the area. Just off the highway, shopping centre, takeaway shop and tavern just up the road. Creek with estuary just across the road and the view out the front to the mouth of the creek and the ocean view, complete with headland to walk around.

First day there.


Earlier enough to catch the sunrise.

They call this little creek Stingray Creek, don't know why.

Image

Doesn't look too bad from the other side looking back towards the park

Tide going out a bit
