The Fold-Out Table That Transformed Our Family Camping Experience

Here we all are gathering around our newest camping must-have for my family of 6 plus friends.

What I thought was an unnecessary and over-the-top last-minute purchase by my husband has turned out to be one of the biggest game changers for us camping as a family. We bought the 6-foot fold-out table, which seemed like an extravagant dining table, especially since we already had one. However, this table has revolutionised how we manage the enormous amount of things we take camping as a family of six.

The table gets put in the front of our tent and serves as a place to prep all the food, store cutlery and pans, and keep everything organised. We tuck all our footwear, torches etc under it, keeping them neatly out of the way so no one trips on them!

Despite its size, the table is so light that when we camp with friends, we can easily lift it and put it outside to eat. In the past, we have managed to get as many as 13 people around it! It folds up super easily, so when it’s time to pack up and go home, there’s no hassle. Even the kids can manage to fold it up and pack it in the car.

Although it is light and manoeuvrable, it is sturdy, and the legs clip into place to prevent accidental collapse—perfect when you have small children eating at it! It folds up really flat, making it easy to fit in the boot of our car, taking up minimal space.

Material: table top made of high density PE plastic and high quality steel frame.
