Replacement Dinette Table

I was crawling through the trailer while the slides were closed and slipped/fell onto the dinette table (it was in the down position) causing it to crack/splinter along one edge (cheap chip-board) .

Have been searching for a replacement table and/or obtaining a replacement laminate but not liking what I'm finding. Some of the replacement tables are over $100 and don't match the color scheme. As for a laminate, only finding a full 4'x8' sheet and those are expensive.

I'm considering just replacing with a hardwood surface and staining it myself but I wanted to ask around what others may have done or if anyone else has a suggestions.

I'm not in a big hurry as the second dinette table is the same size and we rarely use that one so am just swapping it around.

Glass half full:

You can choose ANYTHING your heart desires for that tabletop now. Something you like 100 times better than the one you already proved inferior. Do something cool and amazing even.

Then post a pic so we all envy it.

I doubt if you will be able to find a hardwood slab large enough to be the table. If you do it will be more than the 100 bucks and very heavy or if you go with normal width 5/4 hardwood you will find yourself or someone else planing, gluing, planing again and sanding and then the finish which will easily hit your 100 dollar mark.

A 4x8x3/4" sheet of plywood can be expensive also but you can get it with different top laminates for finishing.

Whatever you choose it won't be cheap unless you go with what you've already found.

Not familiar with that the rig or table you're referring... but here's what Trekwood lists for a 2015 Kodiak. All are well over $100...

Yep, expensive, 160 bucks out the gate for standard format.

Several things come out of my head. A fella could use 3/4' plywood and finish the top with a good laminate flooring. The edges could be sanded smooth and painted or there are iron on edge tapes.

Same thing could be done with a quality vinyl laminate flooring also. Or ceramic tile but that would start to get heavy.

These ideas would come in under 100 dollars probably. The world is your oyster depending on your millwright skills and bank account.
