ALPS Mountaineering Regular Dining Table
Set up the Alps Mountaineering Regular Dining Table, spread out the yummy camping food, and dig in. At 28 inches wide and 43 inches long, this camping table delivers plenty of space for a two-person chow-down. The sturdy aluminum frame holds your fireside feast, so none of it ends up feeding the ants. Easily collapse the Dining Table after dinner to prevent the raccoons from clip-clapping across it all night. When you're ready to pack up the car, Alps Mountaineering included a convenient carry bag to store this camping table.

Big fan of this table. Didn't use it as a dining table, but it made a great prep table and stove rest. Held up very well and packs up nicely. Extra bulk, but so much better than the alternative. My only ask would be a fabric shelf like the Eureka Catskill table, but that could probably be added with a little effort. Got it on SAC for around $55 with shipping.

Get off the ground and update your campsite with this table. As the other reviewer says, if you have the space in your car why not bring this along? The table is strong, light, and provides more space than the "two-person chow-down" as mentioned in the product description; at least 4 people could have a meal on here.
I don't have any concerns about the durability of this table. It feels sturdy and generally well put together. The aluminum may acquire a few dents over the years but with proper care it should last through many camps, tailgates and backyard bbq's.
My only complaint about the product is that it had a small dent in the table-top and one of the "clips" on the ends of the frame was bent in. They weren't a big enough deal to send it back for a replacement.
What it comes down to is simple enjoyment. When car-camping, nothing is worse than not having a piece of equipment that you realize would have made you happier had you brought it. So, unless you enjoy the ascetic-minimalist qualities of "roughing-it" bring this table along to keep your grub out of the dirt.
