The outdoor kitchen was the deciding factor in our RV choice. When we traded in our 6 yr old unit, the salesman asked if the gas stove worked. Our answer was we don't know, never used it as we cook and eat outdoors. That's why we go camping. The outdoor kitchen eliminates a separate cooler and portable kitchen we used to carry. Also makes keeping the inside clean and bug free much easier as it eliminates many trips in and out.

The outdoor kitchen on our 2015 Jayco White Hawk 25BHS was one of the biggest selling points because we do most of our cooking/coffee making outside to reduce the moisture inside.

We enjoy our OD kitchen for many of the reasons others have already noted in addition to some things I never thought of when we first bought our TT:
1) During the camping season we park our TT beside our backyard patio plugged into elect. & water. We use the awning, OD kitchen, grill, etc. to help prepare food for larger family events... I keep soapy water in the sink & rinse-off hands & utensils often when backyard grilling.
2) Our OD sink drains into the black tank which IMO is a good thing since the black tank normally does not fill-up as fast & extra water prevents solids from sticking...
3) I fully utilize the outdoor cabinets & countertop space & love that I can quickly lock it all up when we leave.
4) I utilize the extra 110V outlet for everything from bug zappers to power tools when I am working around the TT...

Yes, saw it yesterday at Couch RV Nation in Ohio. I love my OK and have been on the lookout for one as part of a quality residential style fiver vs a bunkhouse model. The OK on the Creek has a fridge, microwave and grill. I do prefer to have a sink but may compromise. The inside design has a defined separation between the kitchen and living area with doors that pull together. The kitchen island is small and storage in the kitchen is limited. Otherwise an intriguing design

At first I was dead against the OD kitchen....more stuff to clean, fix, winterize etc. However, many of you make compelling arguements for having one. I do most of the cooking and clean up so the thought of being outside with the rest of the clan while doing that is an asset.
