I'm planning a possible modification to the table in Absinthe - deos anyone know where I can get a table bracket and some tripod legs for using the table outside of the van?

JustKampers (www.justkampers.com) sell all the brackets and the tripod (search for "Fiamma Tripod") and I'm sure others do too.

We bought a tripod at VanFest last year and we were told it was one of the last alli ones around as Fiamma had stopped making them.

I've ordered a Heritage Board from these people to make into the table: http://www.originalsurfboards.co.uk/originalshop.php

Here's one they've done for other customers:



My plan is to get my next door neighbour who has a bodyshop to spray it in Absinthe's colour & I will then get another client to make me some cream vinyl lettering of Absinthe in a brush script type font to go down the length of the board with maybe a seperate Bay image at one end. I'll then lacquer or clear varnish over it for protection.

That's the plan - whether it works or not only time will tell!

Ive been looking for a shorter pole. Bought a tripod last year at Malvern, first time we used it outside, the table top was at about mouth height for me, but Pat who is knee high to a grasshopper, ended up needing a periscope to see her food. I exaggerate a bit, but not much! Rolling Eyes Laughing

Not got my van here so can't measure the poles diameter, but you might try one of the ikea legs and cut it down to correct hight, they have some which look similar size Dizzy

Looks great - the board I've ordered is longer than yours but I hope it looks as good.

Just measured mine, 70cm long, 57mm diam, and tapered both ends to fit sockets, so I can't really cut one down, but found identical one 60cm long £10.17p on Tims link (under 'table legs'), so probably go for that.

We got our shorter table leg from Go Outdoors, don't know if there's one near you and our tripod legs came from Just Kampers.

Thanks guys but just ordered a 60cm one from campervanaccessories whilst you were entering your posts. According to their stock count they have 1266 in stock, so no shortage there! Laughing

Thanks Cap'n, looks like they've got some good kit, and only 15 miles away from Absinthe's mooring. Laughing

Looks good although I did have a quickm look and waiting times seemed a trifle long. I'm sorted now anyway - let the project begin!

Thanks for everyone's help.
