We have a bit of a saga with the camper trailer kitchen, well actually our camper trailer does not have a kitchen.We have always just taken a table, a few plastic tubs and set them up outside in the awning. This has worked fine for us except if it was really wet or windy. On long stays I would take and set up my pantry. Known as the "fancy dancy campy pantry".
We can't take fancy dancy campy pantry on the big trip, it is too big and takes too long to set up for just a couple of nights.
So at a camping show we saw this...
Perfect! I thought, the genuine Trak Shak kitchen caddy. (Our camper is a Trak Shak) It has a lovely long slide out stainless steel bench for preparing food, a cradle for the stove and of course the kitchen sink!
The best part is, it attaches to the rear tailgate of the trailer so can be used in the tent or unhooked and used outside. Very versatile!
In the past we have not been able to use anything like this because our zips around the tailgate were dodgy and all manner of pests and slithery unmentionables could have joined us in the tent.
But, as we
speak blog, the zips are being replaced as well as the floor and all will be in good working order (I hope).
Any way, this rather unsophisticated milk crate type set up seemed to me to be ideal and would make things a little easier.
Any how, the saga. We ordered a caddy some time ago and recently the company have contacted us to say they are having trouble getting stock and don't expect any to arrive before we go. There is a slight chance they may get some in a couple of weeks. So our dilemma is do we wait and risk missing out or go to plan B?
Plan B is a bit scary because it involves Mr M and a welder. Mr M is brilliant with timber, can make anything. A welder, I am not so sure about. The other thing is that I am not in love with Milk crates, they don't have lid or slide in and out. So I have been researching and researching trying to come up with some nice plastic drawers so I can be organised.
Something a little like this
Wish me luck, I go to bed dreaming of sliding drawers, stainless steel and milk crates.
