How to choose & Editor’s Choice table
There are various ways to see this list and this may depend on your priorities.
Regarding the weight, you have quite different tables and the difference may be by a factor 2 or so. But these tables are mostly for camping at places with a motorized access, so the weight is not a big issue. But you have seen examples of very light backpack-portable tables.
Regarding the packed size, this is where you might want to check the dimensions if you have a limited space in your car or trailer.
Normally, those folding tables remain large in two dimensions, but they become thin and can fit into narrow spaces. The collapsible tables usually remain large in one dimension only and they may be better suited if you don’t have much space in the vehicle.
Regarding the storage elements’ functionality, there are also big differences. You have seen some tables that include multiple storage options. So if you plan lots of cooking in the camp these should be your choice.
Regarding the materials, I guess the most important segment to consider is the tabletop. So you have seen some metal constructions and some that are with synthetic tabletops. The former is more durable and more heat-resistant.
Thank you for reading. Note that this text will be updated whenever I find a good table worth adding here. So stay tuned, bookmark this post and check occasionally.
