My TT had NO counter space.  There were inches around the sink and stove and a board that could go over one of the double sinks.  I needed to do something about it…..Here is my solution!!!!

The original counter space

I’m guessing I just increased my counter space by 80%

I hinged it so I can fold it when we open the couch for sleeping

I used folding leg supports to support the table when open.  I used 4 typical hinges where it connects to the existing counter.

Our travel trailer came with one of those lift up shelves, not as large as yours. Yours is a bit handier, though. Ours lifts in front of the door, so partially blocks it. We can squeeze by, so the extra space is welcome.
Trying to figure out more work space has been interesting in each of our campers. We used part of the front bunk in our Cobalt pup, and now the end of our (island) bed, for space to set things down while working in the "kitchen". I made a table cloth to cover the area of the bed we use.
