Have a look at my home made kitchen. There are a couple of pics in my rigs page. Feel free to ask any questions if you want.

Can do Neil. I have to retrieve those shots from an archive and it might take a couple of days, but you will get them. Do you want the details of the construction method as well? I made a frame of QBElock and screwed plywood over it to save all the timber joinery work and to keep weight down.

Qbe lock is square section aluminium tubing with a system of tap in plastic joiners to connect it all together. Very light, strong and rigid and not too pricey. The aluminium tube can easily be cut to whatever lengths needed to make up a frame of whatever you want. Also good for making sets of shelves in the back of your 4WD

Agreed, you can build one without a frame. Using an aluminium frame however saves lots of joinery work; allows lighter weight materials to be used for the "cladding", and so saves lots of time and weight.

Shaker, there are a few details of the unit Neil and I are talking about that we haven't explained. It's not a pull out box. The Unit bolts into the tail gate of a trailer. so it has to be able to be bolted through its back wall onto the gate. It also folds out. The unit takes about 1 minute to set up and gives a kitchen workbench about 8 feet long with shelves and _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx underneath.

Shaker, looking back over my post, I don't think I have explained it very well. I know kitchens can be built without a frame. As well as the ease of construction,by using a QB frame, the panels that form the main box can be folded out to form extra work spaces and shelves while the frame supports the stove, _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx and cutlery, and saucepan storage.

There is another solution, without going to the need of building a lift out kitchen.

We do a full length set of _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx for campers. These make organisation and packing simple. They also double as your kitchen.

Saves a lot of space and makes setting up at camp very simple.

If you'd like a bit more information, call me on 03 9706 6527 and I can explain how we have our own camper set up and how it all works.

No obligation, no hard sell.

Jim.

Do you have any photo's or photo you can email me. I've actually seen your site and other setups for the car and you are very well priced.

Thanks
Neil
