Whenever I travel by plane, I need to have a table on which to place my computer workstation on it (~1 laptop, 2 external computer monitors, and a keyboard) as soon as possible after I arrive to my destination (typically, a rented apartment or hotel room). For some reasons, a fair amount of rented places don't have any table to work on, or the table might be too small (e.g., only the laptop and a keyboard fit on it).
Is there any type of tables that are convenient to travel with when taking the plane? Is there any clever way to assemble some kind of light makeshift table?
Convenient = light + can be placed in a regular-sized check-in luggage (~28 x 19 x 12 inches is quite common).
I am looking for two types of tables: 1 steady enough to use a keyboard on, and 1 not necessarily that steady, just good enough to hold a laptop and/or the 2 computer monitors.
What I found so far:
- Some websites such as Airbnb indicate the presence of "laptop friendly workspace", but that significantly reduces the accommodation options, and sometimes such filters are quite vague (and looking at pictures of the place might not be enough: difficult to estimate table size, and the furniture might have changed).
- One can use a small fridge, a shelf, and a regular-sized check-in luggage as a table.
- I can buy a table locally but that takes some time + money, and in some locations I might arrive after the shops closed.
- I am aware of one could use coworking spaces.
