okay for the price

I have a couple camp tables, but wanted one with a metal top which I could use as the cooking table when camping. This way you don't need to worry about a hot pot being set down on the table and doing some damage to the table. This table is pretty sturdy once fully assembled. Not too bulky when broken down. It's avg in that regard. As another reviewer mentioned, some of the edges on the slats are a little sharp, so be careful when assembling it. Once assembled there aren't any exposed edges.

The slats on the top are hollow aluminum. They're not a full rectangle hollow, but 3/4 of a rectangular. So the hollow portion of each slat is exposed on the underside. This makes them less durable. Also, all the slats are held together with a bungee like chord that runs through them perpendicular to the slats. In my experience bungee chords don't last more than a year or so before they lose their elasticity. So we'll see if it holds up. It's fully stretched when rolled up, which is how you store it, so it's a definite concern. Lastly, the metal is very thin, basically sheet metal. This makes it light weight, which is nice, but I expect this to get banged up and dented pretty easily on camping trips. Almost seems a little fragile. It's thin metal. Throwing all the gear in the back of the SUV or even unpacking isn't always gentle on gear. So I'll need to be conscious about this when transporting if I want it to not get dented or bent.

It will do okay for the intended purpose. If it was easy to return I probably would. My other tables are better quality and lasted years. But they're also more expensive. You can't beat the price on this. If I don't like it after a couple years it will go in the recycling bin.
