Broadstone Long Folding Table
Good basic table
We just used this table for a 3 day camp trip and it held up ok in sun and rain. We cooked with it on the first two days and used it to hold water jugs, prep stuff, and cook with our coleman stove. It seemed to hold up well. We always cover it with cardboard and newspaper for easy clean up so maybe thats why it lasts a bit longer for us. It got rained on the last day and still seemed to be in good condition. Lightweight and easy to fold, its got convenient carry handles to take it around. Nice to have an extra space to prep food and keep things off the ground.

Save your money!
We purchased this table last year to use for food prep, clean up, etc., while camping. What a waste of money. We would have returned this if it hadn't been rained on and the top hadn't warped and delaminated. Forget about putting anything remotely heavy on this table - in fact, I'm surprised it can hold up it's own weight. It's seriously flimsy, the legs don't telescope smoothly or easily, and the top seems to be not much more than a couple of sheets of laminated Masonite. Boo this table.

Good idea, Poor materials
Bought this table, It looks tough but it is not.
As stated in another review the top is plastic, I would NOT recommend using this table for cooking with a camp stove. Mine melted and twisted. Also don't ever let the table get wet from the rain, the adhesive that holds the top to table will come apart.
Overall, I would not recommend this table again.
Unless you are using it indoors at a church bake sale. That's what this is designed for.

Top bubbles if it gets wet
First time this table got a light rain the top absorbed moisture around the edge of the frame and bubbled. Now everytime it might rain we have to pack it up and store in the tent. The size and weight is good but the top needs to be made of a durable material or it isn't useful as a camp table. I'll use it until it completely falls apart as its agreat size for food prep but will not buy another until they put a durable top on it.

Very poor quality
My husband and I are in the process of outfitting our new trailer and thought this would be a good extra table for outside. The design concept is actually quite good although the legs are difficult to get out.
The main problem with the table is the extremely poor quality. In the picture the top looks aluminium as well, but it's made of cheap plastic or possibly even contains paper, since another reviewer said it warped.
I would absolutely never put a camping stove on this table, as pictured on the box, as it's so rickety it would be very unsafe. At best this table could be used as a card table or something similar, but at $50 you could find something else much better.

This is a lightweight table that holds up well. It held our water jug, coffee maker, campstove, etc. It also folds up easily. It works well for the price.

HORRIBLE WASTE OF MONEY
Bought this table this summer for camping, rained once and table warped. Rain got inbetween the seam and the top coating and bubbled all around the entire top.
Table doesn't fold out evenly. it peakes in the middle.
