It's a very nice, stable, and light table. But it is hard to fold the accordion top and wrestle everything back into the storage bag. It is much larger than I thought it would be, I wished I would have checked the measurements better before I ordered. However, it might be nice to have the extra sp...

This will pack away nicely for tailgating and other similar uses but it definitely isn't the most solid table out there. It's light, but the aluminum slats are prone to denting. It rolls up nicely but as others have questioned, I'm also not sure how the shock cord will hold up. That being said, at the right price point it's a good purchase and I'll probably buy another one if this lasts a decent while.

Bought this for the RV. It isn't as compact as I expected. The assembly is a bit clumsy and it wobbles quite a bit. I expect it will marginally serve its purpose as the outdoor table for when there isn't a picnic table there.

At 14 lbs, I thought this might be too heavy for our purpose: Car and Camper camping, But it's not. The extra width is worth the additional weight since we'll cook and eat here. Previous reviewers are right; it's a challenge to roll up the table top and fit it in the divided bag. We've found that folding the table top in half and then rolling adds bulk.

I am able to set this table up rather quickly. It is a good size for dinning on or settting out or preparing food. It should be sturdy enough if it's not abused. Getting it back inside the carrying bag takes longer than the set up, but I hope that will speed up as time goes by.

Hold on. Before you go back to your browsing and assume this is just another guy who thinks he has all the power in the world in his hands just because he's reviewing a product take a minute to think about this table and the awesomeness it should be known by. It may not have sexy, rounded edges. It may not cook your food for you. It may not set itself up. That's fine.
It will change your life. That should be enough.
So far the only real drawback is that it cannot hold two 350lb women and a propane tank without caving in. Lets be realistic though, the only thing you'll have at your camp site is the propane tank. All this surface area is enough to set your baller camp stove and all your delicious prepared food on. After cooking it can be used to set your empty cans/bottles on for the rest of the night. This table doesn't care about sleeping out in the cold. It has a heart of aluminum and a nurturing soul. When you wake up in the morning you'll caress it's cold, baffled table top and remind it that your life was nothing before you met.
It is a reasonably sturdy table, especially if you make sure it's set up on a good ground spot. Several people have been very pleased with this table and it will be able to hold a dutch oven.

Cast iron is only for car or horse camping, very heavy. Almost impossible to break, does rust, generally larger means wider and thus more stable, but except for dealing with the lid I've never had one tip or turn over if it has a flat bottom. Which is the kind to have, so you can use it anywhere. They cook great.

This entire table is aluminum, though it does not specifically state if the hinges are aluminum or steel. The bolts and attachments look as though they are normal steel bolts. The rest of the table is aluminum though.
