Does anyone use a kitchen cart?

I'm considering getting a kitchen cart with drawers. LOL, Yes, I do have my ironing board, but it has no drawers! I found this online today and think it might be just the ticket! The 233S has no drawers to speak of and I just really need them.

So, the question is ~ do any of you use anything like this? I know I could get less expensive plastic versions, but think in the long run the quality of a wood product would be a reasonable investiment. Yes, it's heavy, but that would not be an issue for us. I would install a couple of loops to keep it from moving/tipping while we are traveling.

Thoughts?http://common1.csnimages.com/lf/49/h...847781/1/1.jpg

It seems I am talking to myself here, but that's nothing new~~~~ So, I ended up getting a cabinet at Lowes. It is 31" tall, about 17" deep and 24" wide. Yes, it's a bit bigger than I had hoped, however, I think it will suit me nicely. I was able to pull it far enough away to use the outlet. I am not going to be using the first two doors under the side bunk near the refrigerator, but the items I have stored there aren't a big deal, they'll be used once in a blue moon and I can get to them. I used some baskets and clear shoebox containers. I also purchased a drawer kit to hold the cooking utinsels I didn't have a good place for. The top of the cabinet will be much needed counter space.

I am also considering setting up an outdoor camp kitchen space, although I'm not convinced on that one ~ we'll see

Friends had this in their old camper but no longer needed it in their new one so they gave it to us. Fits right under our countertop extension and works great for the dogs leash, collar, towel for muddy paws, etc.

Thats cool the way it fits in there It seems quite stable and is made of pressed wood so I don't expect it to go anywhere....... I will secure the doors with a bungie when traveling.

Surprising how thing move about when traveling down bumpy, rough roads; that's why most sofas and chairs come with tie-down straps. The dinette chairs actually moved around until we strapped them down. Keep an eye on the cart...just in case.

We have one in our toy hauler. I use two ratchet straps to secure it in the cargo area, right next to the golf cart, and then wheel it into the kitchen area when we are not mobile. My wife loves it, and makes a very nice storage/work area in the kitchen.

Ours is actually a good bit larger, it has two cabinets on the ends, and three or four drawers in the middle.

We have thought of how to attach it to the cabinet behind it; it really wouldn't hurt...... Thanks for the info

dj - our particular floor plan really has no kitchen IMO, so it really needed something!

I rearranged the stuff in the cabinets / closet last night and everything has a home now with space to spare for food, etc. Even created some space for DH's "stuff" Right now, everything is put neatly away and I am hopeful we are set! I guess next campout we'll see

Thanks again everyone~

I know what you mean, the cargo area of the toy hauler is great for hauling the golf cart with us, and makes a nice private bedroom with the two queen bunks, but the living room and kitchen areas suffer from lack of space because of it. The cart definitely makes a nice useful addition.
