InventHelp, America’s largest inventor service company, has announced that one of its clients, an inventor from Pennsylvania, has designed an attachable deck for permanent installation on the side of a trailer or RV. This invention is patented.

According to a news release, the “RV/Trailer Outdoor Living Accessory” deck would incorporate fold-down furniture, adjustable legs and collapsible rails. The unit would fold up against the side of the vehicle for storage and transport. Easy to install, the unit would provide campers with a clean, dry and stable place to eat or relax. Additionally, the RV/Trailer Outdoor Living Accessory would help to prevent tracking of mud or grass in the camping vehicle.

The RV/Trailer Outdoor Living Accessory would consist of a deck that would attach to the side of a camping vehicle with piano-style hinges. The unit would incorporate a motor, fold-down side rails and legs, a built-in, fold-down picnic table and bench and a 4-foot-wide door. The deck and fold-down furniture would be producible from a strong synthetic compound or aluminum.

The motor would be battery-operated. The deck would be designed for storage beneath the rolled-up awning. To gain access to the trailer door while the deck is in stowed position, a user could unfasten the brackets on the deck door and pivot it downward. To set up, a user would operate the motor to lower the deck to the ground level, fold down the legs, move the railings up into position and fold down the furniture. The deck could also be produced in a manually operated design featuring a pulley system. The RV/Trailer Outdoor Living Accessory could be produced in a variety of colors and designs and offered in sizes to fit camping trailers, RVs and house trailers.

InventHelp is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor.
