Coleman 4 in 1 table

I just bought this thing and can't wait for tomorrow to try it out down in Clark Valley Anza-Borrego) on an extended camping trip. My current two coffee tables 18 x 18 x 18 are getting close to the end of their life. I have had to repair one twice. The new version is a piece of junk so I have been searching for something that will take over. Here is just the thing or at least a thing that looks quite promising.

It has three heights (really 4 heights) and can be used as either one or two separate tables in several shapes. I love that it can be 33" high. Bending over a standard 27" high table to prepare food is killing my back.

Here is the link. http://www.coleman.com/coleman/Colem..._id=2000003098

look cool, but kinda pricy for just a table. 12.3lbs is really heavy for my taste. but it's got 300lbs capacity.

I agree that 12lbs is a bit heavy but it looks study , probably the last small folding table you'll ever need. :)

Just returned from Clark valley. The table performed better than advertised. It turns out the legs can be configured to create a table 4 feet high. Now I just need to find some camping bar stools.

i still can't get over the 300lbs capacity. I have about 4 tables and they're all lightweight. I don't like the fact that they're flimsy and move around. This may not be a bad purchase, but I no longer have room in my garage

I only deployed half the table this past weekend---and was truly pleased with the result. It turns out the thing straddles my existing table so that I can deploy it in a footprint which augments my traditional set-up. In other words---I have a higher table for chopping that doesn't kill my back but which also creates a "cubbie" space below to use for shading bananas and table-top items from direct sun.

Here are the photo's. Oops, sorry about that last photo.
