What type of camping table is this
As you realize from the name, they describe it as a grilling table because it has plenty of features for such a use. But you can use it as you wish, the side tables which you see in the picture can be used for dining. Their height is 25 in (64 cm).
But this is a collapsible and folding camping table and this implies the following. The biggest part of the structure is a folding system with all the elements pre-attached to each other. But there is a roll-top accordion-type tabletop which you add after you unfold the frame, plus a storage shelf which you also add separately. All the elements are shown in this picture:
The most important steps in the setup are shown in these pictures:
So the table needs a simple assembly and this is why this is not a folding table strictly speaking. But this all is done in less than a minute. I have included it in my list of best collapsible camping tables.
There are several elements that you can use for extra storage and they include:
- The two folding side tables.
- Numerous attachment elements on these side tables, see the picture below. They include cup holders and other types of holders, and hooks for utensils.
- Metal storage rack which you add underneath the tabletop. They are well separated so you can store lots of stuff here.
The picture below shows the view from the narrow side of the structure, so you get some idea about the storage space it offers:
The central tabletop is very tall so you have 33 inches (84 cm) from the ground. This is a proper height for a grilling table. The top table’s dimensions are 26 x 16 inches (66 x 41 cm) and the distance between the rack and the tabletop is around 12 inches (30 cm).
The frame is steel and the tabletop is aluminum. The side tables are some hard plastic. The pictures below show the tabletop close view and its underside with clips:
As you see from the pictures, there are 8 feet here and all are with plastic caps, see two of them in the picture:
Attaching the rack is easy, the picture below shows its holder on one of the legs:
There is a carry bag included as well shown in the picture below. So you can carry all the elements nicely packed inside. This also allows you to keep it clean from dust when stored at home.

Who is it for
Regarding the dimensions, practically you have three tabletops here, and they offer the total area of around o.6 square meters. So this is a large surface and even if you have a grill on the highest table, you can still use the two side tables as dining tables, they are high enough for such a purpose.
Regarding the weight, with its 20 lb (9.1 kg), this is not an item to carry long distances. But the carry bag is with handles and you can move it easily in the camp.
The packed size 37.7 x 20.4 x 6 inches (96 x 52 x 15 cm) is such that you clearly need a car for transportation. It is a bit large but it is also thin so it will fit in narrow spaces.
Regarding the capacity, this table is impressive. The central tabletop can support up to 100 lb (45 kg). Each of the two side tables can support up to 20 lb (9.1 kg).
Good and less good features
Here is my short summary:
- Exceptionally functional.
- Easy to use.
- Storage features.
- Carry bag.
- Large when packed.
