All good, Andy.
Thanks for your interest and advice :)

I didn't say too, part of the reason for adding adhesive to the mix was because I didn't encounter any aluminium framing that would have give a bit more strength to the installation.

Depending on the size of the table, there can be quite a bit of leverage.
To be taken into account when playing "Snap"!!

Hi ,leverage was the main problem i had with the Lagun ,SWMBO allways used the table edge to help get up ,pointing out that she already had `sturdy` legs to do this didn`t garner me any brownie points though ;) :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've yet to see if this will be a problem with us. (shouldn't be: she's a X country runner!)

In case anyone is interested in the changes I have made to the standard Dreamtime lounge layout.
There used to be a "cafe-style" table (fixed to the left hand wall) and seats (with associated leg space) and a hole to the right, under the rear seat. Not sure what that was for.
I had been going to do a more elaborate conversion making the left-hand bed space wider but Kathy assured me the existing width would be sufficient for her.

That made it a lot easier. All I had to do was install the missing part of the bed platform where the table was (using the cut-down table) and install a flap there to provide closed storage.
For the "hole" at the back, I elected to have a drawer made. It just slides on the carpet, but locks behind an angle iron bar fixed across the front top of the hole.
My only "mistake" was in thinking that the table pedestal was a gas filled job, which would allow me to lower it to a level just proud of the top of the seat squabs (to hold coffee mugs - or, more likely, wine glasses) at a conveniently low level. The pedestal turns out to be just a mechanical spring-loaded affair, with two positions: Up and Down. Although there is a lot of adjustment to be had in the table top horizontal plane, both back-and-forth and rotating.
