Hi Guys & Gals,

Does anyone have a drifter kitchen in their camper trailer?
How do you find the quality, ease of use etc?

We get our camper trailer next week & are doing the kitchen ourselves, any other brands suggested?
Off around OZ for a year starting xmas

friends have a Drifter kitchen set up - they love it - but prhaps for the long haul it may be a bit fiddly in my opinion - very compact though

Bloody expensive though . . . . . .

Don't have one , looked at them, like their designs, and construction looks first class , but price . . . . . . . . .

I friend of mine had a kitchen unit put on his camper at Complete Campsite (near Gosford I think). FAR cheaper , and he is very happy with it.

We have a Drifter, 3 burner size, for about 3 years and three different camping rigs. Great unit. Well made and worth the $ because there is quite a lot of detailed work in it and the quality is there. We like it because it is not tied to any rig, we use it out of the boat, car, 4wd whatever, wherever.

All aboard!

We have a Drifter 2 burner model, it has survived numerous trips in the back of the 60 series, and now slides well into the camper trailer. Its has done about 20k and just needs a light sand back.

We settled on not having a kitchen in the trailer because we had the Drifta (yes, not cheap, but i still think value for money). Everything we need is in there and is easy to check supplies and restock prior to trips. It is not tied to the trailer so we can put it wherever we want it at the campsite. Spoke with Luke (Drifta) when we bought the trailer and he was happy to swap/trade for a trailer model if we wanted, but we decided to remain with the standalone version. Friends of ours upgraded to a larger camper with kitchen, and Luke downgraded their Drifta to the single burner model for them, taking the larger one back. They still wanted the drifta for bench space and storage.

Dead easy to set up, just make sure its level. We cater for a family of 4 so all the non perishables normally get packed in there. Also run a day box for the back of the car, with some plates, cups, butane stove etc. If we are out for the day this is in the car and we don't have to raid the kitchen.

You could probably make something similar, but, being a home handless man, it was easier to buy.
