Cons

  • Lip is Small So Items Can Fall Off 

The Vive is a budget-friendly over-the-bed table. Being so, it does not have a lot of bells and whistles; however, it may be all you need.

The Vive is adjustable in height and has swivel wheels for more effortless movement. The wheels also lock, which is important when you don’t want it to move, for example, while eating.

The height adjustment can be difficult for some, so if you have arthritic hands, this probably isn’t the over-the-bed table for you.

5 Best Over-Bed Tables With Wheels - TigerDad

Pros

  • Adjustable Length
  • Easy To Assemble

Cons

  • Hard to Adjust
  • Hard to Move on Carpet
  • No Ledge

The TigerDad over-bed table with wheels is unique in this review in that you can adjust the height and length. If you want to use it as a stand-alone piece other than over your bed, the smaller size might fit the room better.

The manufacturer states the table can support up to 350 lbs, but that is without the legs being extended. There is no ledge to prevent items from falling off but not being a tilt table that should be too much of an issue but something to be aware of.

Pros

  • Adjustable Height
  • Adjusts for Right Or Left-Handed Use

Cons

  • Table Top Small
  • Wheels Don’t Lock
  • Wobbles

For a little more in price, the Carex is a lightweight (2 lbs) table that can be used over-the-bed but also can be used with wheelchairs, sitting chairs, and couches. Being lightweight it can be wobbly at times.

There is an indentation on the tabletop to place your cup of water.

The height is adjusted with a lever and can go from 28″ to 34″.

For the price, the Carex over-bed table does have some useful features.

Additional Information

  • Assembly Required
  • Item Weight
    • 30.2 lbs
  • Manufacturer: Platinum Health
  • ASIN: B072M5NNBX

Pros

  • Folds Down For Storage
  • Split Surface
  • Two Colors Available

Cons

  • Can Tip
  • Doesn’t Extend Far Over The Bed
  • Unclear Instructions

As we go up in price point, what do you get in the Acrobat from Prime Health that you wouldn’t get in the previous three over-bed tables? The feature that I noticed right off was the split table. You can tilt part of it and use the stationary flat extension for your drink or anything you don’t want to slide.

There are two colors available, which is nice for choosing the one that goes best with your furnishings.

Another feature I like you can collapse it down for easy storage.

The table is still small and doesn’t extend far across the bed, and you will need to be near the edge of your bed to use it.

Another issue found is the ability to tip.

Though some will find the assembly instructions unclear, a video on youtube shows assembly if needed.

Pros

  • Easy to Assemble
  • Offers A Lot of Room
  • 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

Cons

  • Hard to Roll Over Carpet
  • Wobbly
  • Unscrew to Adjust Height

The Joy is a more expensive option than the other over-bed tables discussed above.

The Joy over-bed table goes entirely over the bed – so much room to put your laptop, crafts, reading material, or other uses. You need to be sure that it will fit yours before purchasing. A King size bed will be too large.

One drawback is the height adjustment; the screws need to come out and put back in, which is not as convenient as turning a knob. It will probably be easier to figure out what height you want and leave it at that. Though adjusting the height is not impossible.

The Joy tends to be hard to roll over the carpet but does well on hard floors.

With all products, features can change, so before purchasing, be sure the features that attracted you to the product are still the same.

If you are looking to purchase an over-bed table due to a recent surgery or injury, you might be interested in another post I wrote, Post Surgery Supplies.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at the 5 Best Over-Bed Tables with Wheels. My one piece of final advice is to measure both the table and your bed to be sure it will fit. It would be so disappointing to receive the over-bed table and then realizing it won’t fit in the intended area after assembling.

If you have any stories or experience using or purchasing an over-bed table, I would love to hear. Please comment below.
