Just wondering if you do or would use your caravans table in the awning. I have always shied clear of doing so thinking of damp and rust. We usually travel with a very good awning table, but its large, doesnt fold and doesnt help when packing the car.

Seems really silly to be carting two tables around, and we very rarely use the caravans supplied table so maybe make more use of it outdoors?

We only ever use our supplied table outside or in the awning. (When overwintering in Spain it remains permanently set up in the awning).

Our caravan is so small that the table would take up practically all the space inside! ..... we find the pull/fold out table perfectly adequate for the two of us.

We only use the big table in the awning but have it on a rubber backed mat to prevent the feet from getting wet (and rusting).

We only use the supplied table,inside and outside,although it's not really big enough for four.We have just been looking at a collapsible lightweight table(think decorator style) as we usually eat outside and when another family joined us last trip it was nowhere near big enough.

We have removed the table in the caravan and only use the slide out when out and about. Increases payload by about 8kg. We also have an aluminium table that is carried in the roof box.

We have a folding table that comes with 4 small stools which we use for the awning , the table supplied by the caravan is up in the loft along with the extra bits that go along with the 2 bunks that we don't use , saving a few kg's , if we do have a meal inside the pull out table from the chest is good enough for us as the kids have their own table at the back.

The original table has only ever been used in the awning never inside. We also take a medium sized fold up also used in the awning and outside if sunny.

Only used mine twice in the 6 years of ownership although it remains stowed in the wardrobe side, otherwise we use the pull-out extension at the front which certainly suffices for two. In fact when I sometime replace the van a similar arrangement at the front will be on my essentials list - and thanks to the reply who saves weight by leaving the main table at home!

We sometimes use the rear dinette which then converts to single or double bed. The heavy table rarely gets used and we have lightweight fir awning.
