Flip up counter extender?
« on: June 29, 2016, 02:51:52 PM »
Looking for one for our 21 ft TT, have seen some pics.  Counter space, especially if the stove is being used is scarce.  I actually have the top of a bedside end table that I could use as the surface so I could do with just the hardware.  Some kind of locking support and some hinges?  I'm handy and have lots of tools, but always look for people who have solved the problem ahead of me first....



Happy Prospector

RV'ers have done it and it sure adds counter space, I'm sure someone here will chime in with a picture and info.

The information is out there, all you have to do is let it in.

I used similar to these.  They are available at different places.  This is just what I  got with a quick Google search.

Use piano hinge for the hinge.

I put mine up with a large Bamboo cutting board (from Ikea) and "folding shelf brackets" from my local hard wear store. The only spot to put it I have to lift it to open the cupboard under but it works.
