I voted don't care, however I would never own a trailer with one as IMO the money spent for that tidbit could be far better spent on other things such as instant water heater, digital thermostat, higher output A/C as standard, better quality sound systems etc. Also give me a good tabletop grill with a good length hose to hook to my gas line and I am good. The DW and I do not mind in the least walking the few steps into the trailer to the fridge or to wash the few dishes we dirty. And it is something else to secure every time you decide to leave the trailer unattentended.

for the two of us we don't need one. I saw several last year with families that were getting used. I think they serve a purpose just as bunks, slide outs etc. do.

Maybe I shouldn't have used "hate".

I just wanted to know if you think having one is
a good idea or not.....

WE also used to tent camp and cook all meals outside.
I get that some folks want to do that.
Now we prefer the bug free, rain free, wind free inside
kitchen but still often eat out on the Pic-i-nick table
(as Yogi bear used to say)

We also often cook outside on a little Weber charcoal grill.
We have a coleman camp stove in storage for
home use during an ice storm or some power outage.

As mentioned, I'd prefer the added weight/expense
of a duplicate kitchen to be put on some other luxury.
It's purely a personal opinion.

Let's see where the poll ends up

Love mine. Got a sink 3 cabinets, beer fridge and a bumper mounted swing arm grill. Not too mention a decent amount of counter space for prep

I think someone with an outdoor kitchen should come to the "tadpole rally" and demonstrate the grill and beer fridge.

I voted with the like it crowd. I do most of the cooking while we're out camping, and most of our camping is done in the Summer. I like anything that will keep the heat down inside.

I like the idea, I think it would keep the mess out of the trailer.

Have a Rockwood 8293rkss on order with the outside kitchen. It was THE most important thing on our list and we only considered TT with this option. We don't need a bunk house, and the 8293 has a huge bathroom with tons of storage. Our friends have a Laredo with it, and I can tell you it is awesome! Ours will come with a micro and a tv,which he doesn't have on the Laredo. We do most of our cooking outside in the summer, so why wouldn't you want this luxury? Maybe those who vote "no" are trying to rationalize their dismissal of not getting one by saying the money is better spent on upgrades? You only live once, as they say. I'm living my life while I can...you never know what can happen in the future. My mom died at 63, never knowing the joy of retirement. So I'm going to do everything in my power to enjoy my life while I'm still able. So there you have it - my entire philosophy of life. And we don't have kids, so it's not like we're spending anyone's inheritance -LOL!
