So after spending the day, wandering around the camping show at Maitland today, I am still none the wiser as to how to achieve a decent kitchen for a rear fold camper.
I have a 2006 Bushman Rear Fold and would love to put a kitchen in it.
After being told today that cutting a draw system into the front of the trailer in front of the wheel arch would be a costly experience and require some serious engineering, I've resorted to chasing a sealable box for the draw bar with a kitchen on a slide system in it.
Please, if you know where I could get a box custom made with a decent job for a reasonable price that I could put a kitchen in let me know.
Or even better if there is a company out there that does something similar please pass their contact details on.
I'm a humble carpenter who just wants to build his wife a nice kitchen... not overhaul my camper trailer!
Cheers
Dave

...surely you saw the Drifta stand? and about a dozen well-specced camper trailers (such as mine :) ) with a Drifta kitchen fitted as standard?

Hi GT,

I recommend the drifter but I didn't see the stand either.

Cheers Wilko

Aww bummer! Drifta (like myself) was "out the back" near the Yamaha fishing tank. Livelovecamp Drifta has plenty of pics/ideas on its website

Yeah, Ispent a bit of time looking at Driftas Stand, but they dont make drawbar box kitchens much any more... according to one of his boys anyway.
That's why I'm fishing for someone who does. In my intial post I spoke about not being able to find any camper trailer mob that does anything like it.

If someone out there does a box like setup on the drawbar that has a dust sealed door and a tray mounted on inside that I can plonk a Drifta kitchen on , then I'm more then happy to give them the business.

Cheers guys and thanks for the comments so far.

Wouldn't have thought it was too difficult - my Dad was thinking of a similar set up. Look at the sizes of the Driftas, figure what best suits for size and weight for the drawbar .... say a DSO or DSOB at around 1000 x 450 x 450 - and buy a checkerplate box to fit the kitchen - mount on runners with a side door .... you get the drift (excuse the pun....)
