When I bought my 2860DS I imagined that I'd be dismantling the outside kitchen in favor of utilizing it for storage. Well, 6 years later, the outside kitchen is still intact. Ever since I first used it, I now won't be without it. The fridge is used to store beverages, even when boondocking and not working because of no AC hookup. The sink etc... is handy when I come back from fishing to wash up and whatever without having to go inside. Plus there is storage behind the tv that swings out and a cabinet that is fairly large. My ham radio gear is also set up in the corner back there.
But, that's me. Everybody is different and has different needs. And to think I asked the salesman to customize my 2860DS when I bought it to a storage area. Glad he said that wasn't possible
