I had purchased a similar item previously for our motorhome and found it very useful for storage, keeping things organized and within reach when needed. The cost of the previous purchase (purchased elsewhere) was about $13.00, but the "tabletop" area was only about 10-11 inches long, and I thought a larger one would be nice, and was willing to pay the extra cost. Although the description online and on the package suggest the tabletop area is 17 inches, it is only 11 inches. So while I do like these organizers, I am disappointed in the misleading descriptions. I could have purchased this item elsewhere for much less $$.
