Using a camper as a hotel it would be way cheaper to use a hotel

can you make a fire outside you hotel room?? can you sit outside and look at the stars at you hotel?? do you have someone within 20 feet at you hotel? everyone had different reasons we camp, we just do not stay around the campground all day looking at each other, my kids and wife like to see the country, learn and explore. just because we don't cook much doesn't mean we don't have fun.

I'm not sure on this but do not all outside kitchens come with a 110v fridge? I do not have an outside kitchen but running a generator all day, as I mostly boondock, would be a no-go. I like the idea of a smaller 12v/gas fridge outside but I'm sure it would be expensive to have two in the unit.

I've only ever seen 110v fridges in the outdoor kitchen. I know that a couple of manufacturers have been given recommendations for a 2-way fridge out there, but I don't know of anyone who has actually implemented it.

I'd guess it is always something that you could retrofit. I know that with my unit, they've already ran the gas line the whole way back there for the little pullout stove top.

I also have only seen 110v outside fridges but nothing saying you couldn't put at 110v /12v fridge in. We have a solar setup on our unit and it runs everything no problem. Get the fridge cold before you leave home, then it doesn't really run all that much.

And it was aquaman that cut a hole in the side of his sierra. This is because sandpiper/sierra used to have a door in that location for a fridge. They then moved the fridge into the camp kitchen, but chose to remove the door. So the space is still back there that the fridge used to be located in.

My only complaint so far.... The fridge on the ODK gets hot(I noticed last summer). I figure on adding a little fan in the ODK area blowing on the fridge. My only seen problem so far...besides the separate grey tank. I need to tie them together as someone said.

Love ours, we use it every trip and it really keeps the inside of the camper neat.
