Practical Motorhome's review of the Quest Gloucester Foldaway picnic table proves it is a strong, handy bit of kit to take on tour


This aluminium folding picnic table is a strong, reliable piece of kit, which will prove invaluable in summer when you want the flexibility of a table outside your motorhome.

The sturdy frame is easy to unfold, and there are no extra fiddly parts which you have to attach. Simply unfold and click into place. The four seats fold out easily.

This does take a bit more muscle for weak-armed people like me, because it is not the lightest table, but in only a couple of minutes you can be set up and ready for dinner.

An easy-wipe surface means that spills from busy family meals will clean away easily and the aluminium is quick drying, just in case you get caught out by a shower.

The lid of the table forms its own carry case, making it easy to move around and the flat, rectangular shape does make it easily stow-able in lockers. However, it is important to remember the extra weight it will be adding to your motorhome; bear in mind that it is 12kg and make sure your payload is up to it.

Whether you put it under your awning or outside in the sunshine - even in your back garden at home - this is a very useful, long-lasting piece of kit. 

We got ours from Jacksons of Old Arley, and it has proven a hit with our exhibition team at The Caravan and Motorhome Show in January and will be making another appearance at The Spring Caravan and Camping Show later this month in Birmingham's NEC. Come and stop in at our stall to have a chat with us and see our fantastic stand.
