What type of camping table is this
This Mesa Table could be described as a collapsible table because it needs some simple assembly and it has a couple of separate elements. Those include a roll-up tabletop which you see in the picture below, and the folding frame.
So as you see above, the tabletop is an accordion-type aluminum structure that packs thin but long, and it comes with pre-attached clips that fix it to the frame.
The frame is shown below, and this is a powder-coated steel construction with all the elements permanently attached to each other. So you simply unfold it and then attach the tabletop from above. This is all easily done and in seconds.
In view of such a great design, I have added it to my list of best collapsible camping tables.
This is yet another great feature here. You have telescopic legs that can be extended in the range 27 -39 inches (69 – 99 cm). The picture below shows its impressive height with fully extended legs.
You have three different positions with pop-out buttons, so this is not a continuous and leveling design. The height is 27 inches, 33 inches, and 39 inches (69, 84, and 99 cm).
It remains very stable even in the highest position shown above. So I had all the good reasons to include it in my list of best camping tables with adjustable legs.
Who is it for
Regarding the size & height, this is an impressive table with dimensions of 48 x 27 inches (122 x 69 cm). The tabletop is aluminum, so it is heat-resistant and weather-resistant. The picture below shows its close view, with the brand’s logo in the corner.
They do not provide an official weight capacity but this is a very strong construction capable of supporting all the usual camping cooking or eating utensils, including ovens and gas burners.
Regarding the height, it is tall in all three levels so you can use it as a dining table for up to 4 people. In all three heights it is also suitable for cooking.
Regarding the weight, the table is on the heavy side with its 22 lb (10 kg). But this is a strong item so the weight is justified. You can carry it short distances, see its carry bag below.
As for the packed size, it is quite long when packed but it is very thin with the packed dimensions 48 x 7 x 6.5 inches (122 x 18 x 17 cm). So you definitely need a car for transportation.
- Weight: 22 lb (10 kg).
- Dimensions: 48 x 27 x 27/39 in (122 x 69 x 69/99 cm).
- Packed size: 48 x 7 x 6.5 in (122 x 18 x 17 cm).
- Frame: steel.
- Tabletop: aluminum.
