I recently saw a link to someone who makes metal trays to sit in the California sink - but I can't remember where - does anyone have the details please?

Used ours for the first time yesterday. We have the older large single lid so this product really made a difference for us. We had a bit more prep space for making sandwiches and then I sat in the passenger seat facing into the cabin and actually had somewhere to put my drink down. Highly recommended.

This might be a silly question.
Do you need to remove the plastic washing up bowl if using the hob nearest the sink when using this metal tray...?

Looking to buy
Always remove the washing up bowl if using the gas ring next to it. Otherwise you're just asking for a meltdown.

Agree the usefulness of this ‘tray’ but found that it rattles when driving. I’ll put some silicon dots on it to see if this prevents the annoying noise.
Good idea. I think the silicone dots will need to be applied to the top of the tray to remove the rattle, ie, between then tray and the glass. The tray sits on the rubber seal around the sink (at least it does on T5.1) so it shouldn’t be that side which is causing the rattle

Check that it's not the latch coming into contact with it, namely the lugs at the bottom of the latch which serve no purpose. If it is just file off a tiny amount of the latch lugs with a fine file (a nail file will work) and you'll be good. The tray should not come into contact with the glass and it sits on the rubber seal which suggests there shouldn't be a rattle.
