here's another with it installed. i have one of these that came with my '68, but it had no hardware attached. the PO removed it, and couldn't remember why or where he'd put it.

there's actually a funny thing in the owners manual about how front table is not to be used while vehicle is in operation.

seeing as how it's directly over the shifter, not really sure how somebody would go about using it while driving anyway.
and even if you did, because you know somebody tried, what would you put on there? coffee? breakfast? a checkerboard? it's made out of a very slidey material.

i like using every strange german innovation that came with our bus but we have yet to figure out a practical application for that thing even when parked. let us know if you do.

cheers!

Good question, but if you look at the pic of the installed table in the second post by allthewayalive, you'll see that his bus has an automatic trans... it shifts for itself!

BTW - Looks as though there is a shifter extension here, the image came from a the owner of the Ebay'd table I purchased.

Made the table, see pics. and fixed the brackets received from "tubdub"
(thanks again ) only have to make the fixings to go on the table to locate into the brackets. Table I cheated on, its a cut down one from an old Dormobile. Re constructed !
