Outside Kitchen Feedback

For those of you who have one of our models with an Outdoor Kitchen, some consistent feedback on the Forum has been that 1). the cabinets were so tall that it prevented adequate height on the counter for appliances and 2). that the faucet needed to be taller to get items under it more easily.

Here is a proto version based on some of this feedback. What do you think? FYI - the exterior door had not been installed yet if you were wondering.

I'm not an outside kitchen model owner, but I have read the post that you mentioned and it looks like you have found the solution to their concerns.

It's nice to know that Prime Time listens to their customers.

I like it but, to be honest like the bigger cabinets with smaller counter space. We like to pack all of our outside food, and snacks so limited cabinet space would be bad for us. The bigger faucet is great. The biggest issue you guys have though is the sink still draining to the black water. You really need to change that. I ended up modding mine to drain into a bucket, not ideal but works.

I like that arrangement better than what is on our 318. Nicely done!

Not bad. But maybe not enough cabinets. Heres a pic of our puma and from the ones with outside kitchen that we seen in person this had one of the better layouts. But the taller faucet is a must and it would be perfect if the microwave was higher up so you could get more on country specifically a coffee pot.

Faucet is much better....i like the shorter cabinets. Only other gripe i have is the stove comes straight out, instead of pivoting out like a keystone or jayco....hard to access counter top/cabinet over stove...

Oh, and an additonal cable jack in outside kitchen please....grey tank drainage would be nice....or at least a valve to switch....

I like the taller faucet and also having more counter space looks good.

I think it looks good! To be honest though, since we usually have the stove pulled out, I like the big cabinets since we can't really use the counter. Either way we absolutely love our trailer!

Dont own a prime time but do have an outdoor kitchen so i thought i would express my opinion as it may be helpful

This is a 180 degree flip of my outside kitchen with a better faucet. My refer is on the right and had to change the door to open left so i could get the defrost tray out so i like it on the left better. My Wildwood Heritage Glenn 312 qbud replaced the cabinets with a flip around tv this model year and i can say i do not like. The outside cabinets are awesome. Sink is small on mine would prefer higher faucet like in pic. Saw a Sierra 365saq the other day with the sink mounted at a 90 degree turn and thought it was pretty cool as well. Only criticism i would have is the glass doors. Other than that i like it. Also mine doesn't have a stove but has a swing around bumper mounted grill which i love.

Ironl mentioned a cable outlet, which i do have and that it also a nice feature
