I opted to remove the outside kitchen from the build sheet on my new unit and save some money because their idea of an outside kitchen was some cabinets and a fridge. My most recent one had cabinets, fridge, and stove, didn't use the fridge much but used the stove often to keep the inside cooler and of course had the bumper gas grill of course.

I just put in an order for a wildcat maxx 312bhx and opted for the dinette set that turned into a wider bottom bunk. So I could actually put six in the bunk house. I do like the idea of the outside kitchen but didn't want to give up the inside space. I have a nice little grill I got at Costco that I can grill on outside. I was also pleasantly surprised that it was about $800 less.

Our previous camper was a TT with a nice outside kitchen. It was really nice with the bumper mounted grill and the cooktop. I do miss having that in our new unit. Class a's with an outside kitchen are rare, they make a few, just not in the model we got. I now have pieces to make an outside kitchen, no sink or fridge, but it works.

Was just at the show at the Big E in Ma and it looks like the outside kitchens are here to stay, most had them of one sort or another.

We were at that show and I agree I saw a lot of models with the outside kitchen and I even seen some without bunks. Some were just a waste IMO, but some had some nice features and cooking space

I agree. Not an option I want, actually find they take away from inside space we find more valuable. A grill (or camp stove) does all the outside cooking we need. Some people love them ~ some get them because they feel they have to. My grill attaches to an LP connection on the 5er. I like it more than the small burner found on the outside kitchen.

I go camping to be outside not inside, the outside kitchen allows me to be outside more. When it's rainy or cold is the only time I spend time inside.
To each his own.

We cook competition BBQ so the outdoor kitchen is essential.
