Can anyone recommend a good folding/roll-top table for car camping? Most of the ones I've seen seem extremely flimsy and feel like they'd break if you sneezed in their general direction.

Are there any that people have found to be sturdy and long-lasting? Weight isn't an issue, but the roll-top would be nice so that it doesn't take up too much of our Subaru's trunk. Any suggestions?

A friend of mine has the all aluminum version of this.

I think he paid around $90 for it with no umbrella. He's had it for a few years and it's never broken. This one's a little pricey and I think they all come from China. The pro is that it folds up nicely and doesn't take up much space.

The blue roll a table that most rafters use is the best I have seen very durable most river trips have 4 to 5 along that serve all functions try REI rei.com/product/378009/camp-ti...

I'd stay away from aluminum, dirt and grit gets in the moving parts.

I just got one of these, and it seems study enough, though I have not used it in the field yet. It is a little smaller than a card table. Get 20% off of it (if your whole order totals $75) with the current coupon on the front page of the site.

Ahh, yes-- I had forgotten about the classic blue vinyl ones! I think my parents had one back in the 80s. Peter Franzen

I have one of these and like it. It collapses to the size of a tent.

I've used the one Kathy suggests extensively, and I highly recommend it. Easy to set up, easy to breakdown, easy to clean, hot pot's don't hurt it. The thing has been a workhorse for nearly 9 years now! Greg G

I have a table that is very similar to the one that Kathy and Greg suggest, but I got it from REI. This table has been great and it collapses to about 27.5 x 5 x 7 inches. See here:
