Default Running Board Picnic Table Accessory

Has anyone ever seen one of these? I have seen full picnic kits as an accessory but not just the table.

I've never seen one before, but it sure is neat. Only problem is with what the auctioneer thinks it is worth. I guess you would need a Lincoln or Cadillac running board to sit on to properly use it.

Yes J Franklin, i was thinking the same thing, military cots are a dime a dozen and the legs look very similar (hardware )

Ditto to that! I could buy many A parts instead!

Add me to the "was thinking the same thing".

Almost bought one at Hershey last fall. The table rolls up and goes into a canvas bag. He only wanted $200 for it. Regret not buying it. He will be one of the first vendors we go see this year.

We have two purchased years ago for no where near that price. Ones a low, almost coffee table height, the other more dinner table height. Both date to the 30's.

Yeah, I thought it looked like an old camp table. I guess you could say it was used in conjunction with an old car, being the same vintage. I have a modern version made of aluminum that I bought at wmart a few years ago.
