My wife and I are new to camping. Tried out a few things recently, and I can deal with sleeping in a tent or the van (depending on the weather) but what I miss the most is my KITCHEN. (nope not the bathroom) I have seen some really nice micro-campers with kitchens that open to the outside (like the T@B) but we don't want the camper part...just a mobile kitchen, pantry and storage for all the camp site "Stuff" like a carpet, table, comfortable chairs, etc...

Before I go and try to build something from scratch, does anyone know of a nice Towable kitchen/pantry/storage unit?

You should look into getting a "teardrop trailer"

The sleeping area could be used for pantry storage and chairs and extra junk.

Do some searching on the net in regards to Boy Scouts. Most troops build their own cooking trailer. There are probably plans out there.

X2 on the teardrop. Several manufacturers out there. You could either sleep in the front, or like WoodGlue said, use it for storage. They usually have pretty decent kitchens in the back. Might check out "Little Guy" teardrops, Headquartered in Canton, Oh. They have them small enough to be pulled by a motorcycle(although I don't think this model had a kitchen in the back) and larger.

Here are a few built ones and at least one commercially purchased kitchen.

Hi,

Do searches on google for off-road trailers. They have different models of kitchen setups. The australian ones are the bomb! Big bucks though.

I like the teardrops, we looked them over, but for the price we could pick from a lot of barely used small trailers with more features. It would have to be a heckuva good deal, or the day after we won the lottery. I think a set of tools and plans for a DIY might be the way to go for a teardrop lover. Merrykalia, we have the soft-sided Kelty version of the "chuckbox" because it won't bang up the inside of my Prius:

We are slowly building a "build list" of what we want...

Found some reasonably priced 6Wx8L cargo trailers with barn doors in the back and a front RV door... Now to equip it and see what the build would cost...

I am sure it will be more than I expect, but it will be custom and exactly what we want, and we can slowly equip it piece by piece.

In sciuts, we built our own kitchen trailer. Didn't use it long troop outgrew it, replaced it with a kicthen in a large military surplus tent.

I like the idea of putting one together for the back of a van, minivan, or MPV. There is at least one designer doing kitchens for vehicles like the Element or Transit Connect.

Have you checked this site out, they can help you with plans and suggestions if you want to build your own. Many have. Teardrop or camp kitchen on wheels or camp kitchen with a tent mounted on top.
