Looking for a camp table/passenger seat for our 14'. I know of the NRS and the Aire. Is there anything that makes one stand out more than the other? Any other good tables out there?

I have the nrs in my 14 and it's fine, the textured wood whatever they call it is good. Kind of depends if you want wood, plastic, or aluminum. Cambridge, DRE, Pro. A little more flexibility with having dre or the like make you one versus the pre-made, as far as if you want it to nest in a frame pocket versus sit on top of the rails.

Build your own? AAA in Denver sells a leg kit- just cut and seal a piece of birch ply and you've got a great solution.

You can get the parts for that kit on the cheap. Thats how i built my table, i got the flanges from and used the left over pipe from building my frame. You can also get te oipe from the same website.
The good part is that you can make the table in the size you want. I am making a new one this year tat will cover the cooler and dry box bays with or without the cooler and dry box.

Surprised camp time doesn't make something similar to the roll a cot but with taller legs. I would think they could use heavier fabric so you could get a tight surface. Wouldn't help for a seating surface but we don't all have available open bays we can afford to span with a table
Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.

They do make adjustable legs that get taller, but I'm not sure how much.

About 3 in. Another benifit is that they telescope individually which is handy for uneven ground.
Real adventure is only one bad decision away.

A good poverty table

I Have a plastic wallmart table with a metal frame that i have used for about 8 years. Drilled holes near the edge so I could run straps around the tables fame. Works good for cheap (free in my case)and supports a passenger just fine. My tables legs are adjustable, which i find to be a hassle some times. You could use similar legs on a homemade wooden table as well.Next table i might build To double as a back board.
Good luck!!

I think my homemade plywood table has several advantages over any of the commercial ones I have seen.

1. Super simple, I can set it up one handed in less than 30 seconds.
2. It easily adjusts to uneven ground.
3. The saw horse legs can be used as step stools to load a roof rack or climb up a muddy bank.
4. It doubles as a backboard in the event of an injury.
5. Only 2 moving parts, no metal fasteners to rust or break.
6. Folds to only 1 1/2" thick when stored.
7. Easily adaptable, want to add a strap? Just drill a new hole.

It can be seen in post #7 of this thread...

Artisan Metal Works in Flagstaff makes a table that is light weight and perfect for a seat on a 14' raft.
