Tracer 230 FBS Outdoor Kitchen

We really enjoy our new 2015 Tracer 230 FBS!
There is a few things we had to change or add right away, first was the outdoor kitchen set up.
We took the fridge out, built a shelf and put in a smaller fridge (7cu), we now have counter space to work on, and can open the fridge door while cooking.
We added a slide cover, trailer itch for our bikes or basket for our generator and LED strip lighting under the awning.
The outdoor kitchen is a must have for us!

I love our our door kitchen. Our fridge is in it's own compartment by the camper door, so we have plenty of shelf space. My only complaint is I need 2 of a lot of things. I have a coffee pot inside and out, kitchen knives etc

We also love our Tracer230FBS. We have also been planning to putting in a smaller fridge to allow for more counter space. Your mod looks very nice!

Cedar Creek 36b4 with an outside kitchen, we will never go back, we us it every trip and if you think about it most of your camping time is outdoors anyway.

First camper did not have one, second had one and so does our third camper. Will never not have one! Removes all the cooking to the outdoors and great for keeping the camper quite at night when the little ones go to bed.

One item I miss from my sprinter that my sandpiper does not have, the outdoor propane stove.

I don't have a sink and took out the cheap grill-in-a-drawer. I have a fridge and lots of storage. Just how I want it. Use the space for all the BBQ accessories, tablecloths, plastic ware and anything else we feel we need to keep handy. Has a hook up for tv which we have used a few times by bringing bedroom tv out. Extra fridge is a HUGE plus. No need to every carry a cooler. Lots of drinks and stuff for grilling in outdoor fridge.

I'll tell ya.. I love my little 25' trailer and all the places I can get into that I couldn't with my 5r, but my outdoor kitchen is the ONE and ONLY thing I really miss.

Now I'm gonna tear up just thinkin bout it...

I went to the Pittsburgh RV show Sat. and I found three outside kitchen I like one was Apex and the other 2 was a Jayco .If I buy another one it will have a outside kitchen The reason I like those ones was there isn't any bunks and the 28ft one I like had a big br in it .But the weight is to heavy for me to tow for now.The price was right 21,000
