How to choose a camping table
As one of the most important camping equipment, there are many camping tables.
How to choose? we will organize "five key points of choosing camping tables" and teach you how to choose camping tables.
1. Unfold size
5. Extensibility / functionality
1. Unfolding size
The size of camping table can be divided into two parts: desktop size and desktop height.
The selection of desktop size must consider the number of users and space. If there are a large number of campers, a large or long desktop is usually required to meet the use needs. But it can't be too big. You must also consider the size of your tent space. Especially if you use a closed living room tent instead of an open sky curtain, the whole sense of space may feel very crowded.
Desktop height greatly affects the user experience. You must choose a desktop height you like and match it with your "camping chair height". The height of about 40 ~ 55 cm belongs to "low table", and about 55 ~ 75 cm belongs to "high table". above 75 cm or 40 less, one may have to stand up and the other may have to sit on the ground. I don't recommend these two heights as the "main camping table".
Fortunately, there are many camping table feet that can adjust the height. You can adjust the height of the table according to your preferences. The height adjustment can be divided into "segment" and "no segment".
"Segmented" means that you can choose to adjust the fixed height of each grid. The advantage of "unstructured" is that it can be adjusted arbitrarily between the maximum and minimum values, but the disadvantage is that it compares the probability of "foot contraction".
Like other camping equipment, storage size must be strictly considered. In addition to considering the storage space at home, the more important question is whether the car can carry it?
The storage of camping tables can also be divided into "plate" and "column". Usually, the storage of "omelet table" is column, and the storage of "folding table" is plate. I think the "columnar" storage is better, but it should also be noted that the length should not be too long. It may not fit into the trunk or get stuck in the wheel arch of the car.
On the camping table, sometimes there may be hot soup, stove... And so on. You absolutely don't want this kind of thing to overturn! So the stability of the table is very important.
Many camping tables on the market pursue "light weight", but it is likely that the stability of the table is sacrificed when pursuing light weight.
It's not that you can't buy this type of table. It's also very marketable, but I suggest that if you're a friend who just started camping, the camping table you're looking for should be "universal".
I think it can be seen from the "skeleton type". Some types of skeletons are not very stable at first sight (for example, the above figure), so I won't consider them. In addition, whether the skeleton is "integrated" or needs to be "assembled and spliced" will also affect the stability to some extent. If you are still worried, you may have to go to the physical store
The load of the camping table is one of the data we often refer to, but it represents "uniform load" rather than concentrated load, so don't think that if he writes 50kg, you will let a 50kg child sit on it. Even if the skeleton is not broken, the table board may be bent.
Therefore, no matter how high the load is, try not to challenge its "load value" as much as possible, just use it as a reference for use safety.
5. Extensibility / functionality
Recently, there are more and more camping table designs, which can make many different changes, such as "extended accessories", "extended desktop", "kitchen desktop", etc., so that your camping table has more than one way to use.
This is also what I like to see when I choose a camping table recently. After all, it is difficult for a camping table to break down. It usually lives longer than a tent. Can it change according to our different usage habits.
