as for the foot pedal, i didn't like what was commercially available, but was very intrigued by this instructable - Field Sink


That is the same table. Bass Pro has them for $80. My local farm store (Rural King) has them for $50.
I could create just an inverted box, piano hinge and lock up. I have to think of logistics of faucet/hose and a multitude of other things. But this could be really cool!!

Kim, how about a sink such as.........



You can fill it and drain it outside. May be a bit large, but you could shop for smaller.

And a cook top,


how would that work??
that sink/cabinet looks awesome!

that is a very nice idea! i wanted to do something useful with the rear door of our bus. Perhaps a porch: open the door to 90degrees, then lower a fold-out platform, attach side rails+stairs. All supported underneath by a hitch or feet under the platform.
I decided to just put a lock on the door, and leave it shut

That's pretty affordable for a wet system in the bus. I want a considerably bigger sink than that for washing dishes. You know bachelors, we don't do dishes every day.


Docsgsxr; Using that after you make hamburger patties is gonna be a magic trick in itself!

Not really. My pump handle might be as greasy as your faucet handle if I didn't take precautions before I mess my hand up like while I'm making sourdough. To simplify things I use 93% lean frozen 1/2 lb patties from Cash & Carry. I don't buy instant food but I do try to reduce mess and those patties are the best deal I can find on lean black angus ground beef. Not messy at all.

Yes, apologies Kim. I'll keep my patty usage to myself in the future.

I salvaged a stainless steel countertop about 4' long with a sink about 12"x12"x10" deep on 1 end and two burners on the opposite end with about a 20" prep/counter space in between with a backsplash and lip just right for hanging on the side of the bus.
Works out with where I want to put my propane but will have to pipe the water over.
I want my propane on the same side and right beside my fuel tank and somewhat protected by the fuel tanks crash rail because I don't plan on my propane storage area being as heavy duty.
Thanks for reminding me about this I am in the middle of finishing my piping underneath and completely forgot about the outdoor kitchen idea and dang it I forgot way back when I was piping the hot water also. Thanks for the reminder all is not lost yet.
For in public campground use instead of actually running the drain to the tank because of where I want my outdoor kitchen and the location of my grey water tank . I will make a 5-gallon bucket with lid into a French drain with pea gravel or sand and pipe to a location (dry feet) just under the bus.

That sounds nice to have an outside work station. It would be great during hunting season.

The chemicals in dish soap actually act like a light fertilizer and moss killer when put on the lawn. Some households in dry climates actually have grey tanks that they use to water the lawns with.

Someone once told me that light amounts of dishsoap in your irrigation gets rid of bugs in your lawn as well. No grubs = no moles!!!!!
