That what I thought when I looked up Campmor, it looks very similar to GCI.

Alas, they don't make these any more

Thanks. Yes it does help tremendously. I'll go get myself this table from Amazon or Wallymart.

I started out with the GSI micro table


The 15.75"x11.75" top is ok, but the 6" ht is too low for easy cooking. Ok for a "coffee" table, or in a low chair.

So I got a GSI macro table:

Good height (14.75") and plenty of room on top (24x18.4") - except that 24" is too long to go in a saddle bag. I trimmed the top slats to 20.5", and redrilled the pin holes for that end to maintain symmetry.

I really like the roll top tables, but the ones I have seen are 28" or so in the long folded dimension - and didn't look easy to cut down. Now Xeraux posts the RIO, which at 18" (cube when open) will work fine w/o mods.

The only issue I see is weight. 5 lbs vs 3.3 lbs for the macro. Perhaps replacing the steel straps of the frame with aluminum would fix that - but then we're modding again .

I never have liked the idea of the fabric top tables - fire and nylon don't mix well - and every one I got my hands on was not rigid enough to support a stove. Many won't even hold a cup unless it's in a holder pocket.
