Our Caravan BBQ Swing Arm came about when we seen the great invention of the BBQ Arm. I asked Larry if he could make something similar for us. Of course he could! We had used tables over the years but storage was an issue.
Over a few weeks we had a chat about how and where we wanted it. Deciding on the materials for the swing out as well as the table part.
We decided to use wood for the table as it was easy to attach and looked nice in my opinion.
BBQ Swing Arm Materials
Being on a farm and having the use of a welder and grinder obviously made the job cheaper and easier. Larry also found a couple of pieces of scrap metal around the farm that we were able to use.
First though, was a trip to good old Bunnings. A couple of different size galvanised square tubes were needed for our main swing arm.
We can also use it as a side table without the Barbie on it if we want to. Handy if we have guests over.
Now, please, if you’re thinking of making one, remember we are not professionals. We are just showing you how we made it. There are many ways to make one and different places to put your BBQ swing arm.
