How will this hold up?

I'm looking at getting a stainless table to give me some prep area next to my egg. How well can I expect this type of stainless to hold up outdoors in full sun and in a very humid environment.

    Should last just fine, although I think the stainless steel will get kinda hot if its in direct sun.
     
    I need to explore eBay, if they make one half that length, I want it!

    I do not know the spec on my egg table but I have a SS top and I love it. Easy to maintain and huge 32 X 72.

    There's a restaurant supply store in the city that buys all liquidated equipment from closed restaurants etc.
    They have a warehouse full of stainless tables and such.  Gonna stop in and see what they have.  Ideally, a small table to roll around to and from the Egg to do prep work on would be perfect.

    Have been using a lighter weight one from Sams on wheels for several years and works fine. Thinking $169

    Nice. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't buying some horrible knock off that would rust over the first year.

    +1. The restaurrant supply and used tables are where its at! I couldn't believe the size tables and carts they had for $50-100 in the local restaurant supply store. I kind of wish I had found it before I built my table. You might check there first before ordering. You might also find one that is all stainless?

    That Ebay table looks great otherwise. Stainless is rust resistant not rust proof. I would expect it to start to rust at the welds first and maybe spot from there after a few years outside. My stainless weber gasser has a few very small surface rust spots here and there after 5 years outside on the deck.

    The galvanized bottom shelf and legs would probably rust after a few years. You could always spray it down (legs and bottom shelf) with a clear rust preventer like rustoleum etc sells.

    To combat the heat on the table in the sun you could always get a big wooden cutting board to use on top. would give you a cool place to chop things, put your drink down, etc.

    You might verify what material they use for the legs and the little leg post that touches the ground. Those might not be stainless and therefore prone to rust.

    We have stainless in our kitchen and love it.
