Outside Kitchen

After having an outside kitchen it is a must have for me now.

Does this trend seem to have caught on?

Which Forest River campers sport one?

I currently own the 295 Surveyor with an outside kitchen.

Thank you!

I looked at a couple, looked like to much work to keep clean and more stuff to breakdown.

Three sinks, two refrigerators and a partridge in a pear treeeeee.

We have a sabre 32bhok with an outside kitchen.
Will most likely never buy another camper without!

I like the use of portable outside kitchen components, I use Camp Chef for these items. I didn't want to give up any space in the trailer. Never really saw the need for them to be integrated in the trailer......we also do most of our cooking on a wood pellet grill.

We bought an '11 Sandpiper 355QBQ that had one, then 11 months later traded it for a 365SAQ Sandpiper. Both with outside kitchens and will have them as long as there are kids around. Maybe afterwards too! We love them.

Several Models of Campers have outside kitchens. Ours included. Works great with kids. They can wash thier hands and get something to drink out of the frig without going inside the camper. We dont use the stove though. Cook away from camper. Just like the old days when we tent camped. Keeps the roughing it real, LOL ...

We have one in ours, handy if we need it. We camp once a month (weekend) and I can't remember the last time I use it. lol
For week long trips (2 times a year) it's great to have! The fridge, sink, and snacks available for the kids outside it's a plus.

I am thinking it would be nice to have one, but we don't need a bunk as there are only 2 of us. I would use the whole thing, stove, sink, fridge and BBQ. Now we use a electric fry pan and BBQ.

We had one on our 2013 Puma 295kbh, and there is one on our recently ordered Sabre 36qbok. We love them and unless the wind is too strong never use the inside stove.
When researching our new camper, we nixed any that didnt have the outside kitchen, and we really wanted the out side stove, which is hard to find- many brands only have grilles. Also most seem to be on bunkhouse trailers, but thats about all I've really looked at, as we have 3 kids and usually friends.
Almost everybody that has seen our outdoor kitchen has mentioned how they liked it, now all of our camping is at lakes and more warm weather related so that probably helps with the usefulness!
Did I say we love outside kitchens!!!

We love our outside kitchen. This is our 2nd RV with an OK. I set up a pop up gazebo adjacent to the kitchen with a table underneath for extra "counter space" I keep the fridge stocked with adult pop and drinks for the kiddos. I would be hard pressed to give it up.

Do you know off hand what the smallest size is (other than the Rpod)?

Mine is a 30ft but would like to go smaller at some point.

I have one in mine with the bumper mount RVQ that swings out to the outdoor kitchen area. I noticed they are starting to put them in non bunkhouses with rear kitchens and rear baths
