THE TAIL TABLE STORY 

Founder image

Prototype #1

Our First Tail Table Prototype!

We call this one E.T. Cut from one piece of wood, it broke in half pretty quickly and we realized that the design would have to include a really sturdy ‘base’ which became the tray area you see now. This version was amazing for sizing and getting a feel for how we would use the Tail Table. Actually the first name was the ‘Air Table’ because of its floating ability but there’s a popular software company with that name which sucked all the air out of the Google search so we went away from that.

Prototype #2

Now Things Are Getting Real...

Meet The Tank! The general structural design comes into view with the tray that houses the chopping board, and table top which slides back to minimize the size. Still pretty bulky and heavy. The handle and edges are 3D printed and the core is wood. Handle broke-off pretty quickly. We had a ton of fun with this one as it was the first version sturdy enough to put food, drink, even a two burner stove and more. With a stamped aluminum tray it would probably hold over 200 lbs. We stood and jumped on it once.

Prototype #3

Okay Now We’re Talking!

This is The Savior because we fixed the sagging issues realizing this product works as a fully floating cantilevered vehicle table. We continue to improve the design with a reinforced drawer with an aluminum plate strategically placed for structural reinforcement as well as an aluminum S-track which the table and drawer slide along so when the Tail Table is fully extended you have maximum load strength. We created a LEGO like connection with the chopping board to connect them tightly so there are no leaks into the table’s tray. Added a luxury bag and deluxe bag.

Prototype #4

How Can We Improve This?

We call this one Apollo because it was the rocket that launched our product to retailers and positive consumer feedback. Fine tuning details such as boring out the wine glass holders so that glasses do not wobble, added a drainage track on the chopping board to keep juices out of the vehicle when preparing food. Continue to refine how the legs lock out to ensure the tail table cannot be pushed over easily. Refined the Deluxe Package bag to have multiple mesh pockets for utensils and camping or picknick things. Replaced ‘wine glasses’ for ‘wine/beer/beverage goblets’. Redesigned the glass holders to fit perfectly for no wobble.

Fine Tuning At It's Best!

We continue to improve the design with a reinforced drawer with an aluminum plate strategically placed for structural reinforcement as well as an aluminum S-track which the table and drawer slide along so when the Tail Table is fully extended you have maximum load strength. We created a LEGO like connection with the chopping board to connect them tightly so there are no leaks into the table’s tray. Added a luxury bag and deluxe bag.

Prototype #6

Blast Off!

The Starship! It looks a bit like a spaceship no? This is the final prototype with the bugs worked out with a signature sleek aerospace compact design. Our Mat colors have been refined. The mats ‘plug into’ honeycomb’. Hook and dial system redone for ease of use. Patent granted!! Hook and dial replace with one piece to keep from losing pieces. Stem glass holders fit the glasses perfectly for no shaking and spilling worries. Legs lock out into place. Into position and are universal fitting 98% of cars, crossovers, SUV’s and vans. We’re blasting off!!
