How do I make a drop-leave 30" round table?

It is for a camper trailer so space is limited. A drop -leave would fit the space perfect but cannot find one so only option is to make it myself only I don't know where to begin.
HELP!

    i don't know how big your camper is- but i do know there are wt. restrictions as for the trailer hitch, gross vehicular wt. ratings for the camper as well. the gross wt is the wt of the camper and contents. what ever you do....don't exceed wt ratings. i do know you can buy folding conference table about 4 ft long. if it is to long, cut it down and relocate the legs. they generally held in place with screws. when not needed....set out of the way on a bed.

    Find a pedestal table. Cut it into thirds. Attach the two ends parts to the center part (the part with the pedestal) with hinges. After that...you're on your own. ;-)

    Love your catchphrase, Heather. I lie awake dreaming of projects too. This sounds like a fairly basic one, piano hinge would attach a half-moon type table top and a stabilizing leg could be added, or a support like those used on folding conference tables, etc., could add the stability needed.

    I like what Dee said, but you could also attach a board cut lengthwise with a 45' angle. Attach the one with the point facing down( this would be attached to the wall) & to the table top and the other half to the wall. You slide the two together for a really good fit and hold. Then attach the legs to stabilize it. I have used a half oval and also a re-tangled table cut to the size I needed and left two of the legs on it. Then attached the French cleat to it for mounting. Works really cool.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I did neglect to say the size and shape I needed so here goes. Round drop leaf, 34" when drop leafs are up, pedestal leg. This size will fit the space perfectly. More suggestions, please.
