Then we could have a table that slides out from there and have a place to sit food out." Kitchen being Coleman stove and sink. I've been eyeing those fish cleaning stations for $50 anyway and doing a foot pedal sink.
It does have a tow package, so we want to keep that available. I'm searching on Pinterest but don't see anything yet. Has anyone come across anything like this? I need to take a closer look at how the frame goes into the back of the vehicle.
I want to do the same thing when I finally buy my bus. My neighbor just bought a new tow behind rv and it has an outdoor cooking station. A door flips down on the side of the trailer and has the cook top and counter space on it. There is a short length of propane hose that is part of it too. When you want to use it you undo the latch and drop the door down so it becomes the cook station/counter. You then connect the hose to a propane connector that is located under the trailer and tied into the propane line feeding the inside stove and heater. You can then light the burner and cook away.
When it is in the closed position it sits flush against the trailer body. The awning covers the area to keep the sun/rain off. There is also a bracket to bring the TV outside to hang on the side of the trailer if you want, and a 110V outlet and cable connector to hook it up. Pretty neat....simple but effective.
