Boon, those with outdoor kitchens were the ones in the park who liked to sit outside around the campfire a lot after dark, talking and drinking beer.

What a "curbside kitchen" offers beyond this escapes me.

Red, yeah. I guess it comes down to wants and needs. The reason I bought a travel trailer was to focus more on the latter. Everything one really needs is there. I do not want to travel with excess.

I don't like them placed on the curb side because you have a big mess where your awning/patio is... If we added one it would be outside the kitchen since on the forward end of the curb side (that's on a 19' Bambi). I'm not sure how they would be for actual showers, but I can see them being useful for rinsing sandy/dirty feet or kids or giving a dog bath. One thing to keep in mind if you camp in extra cold weather...they are a weak point for freezing pipes since there is not much between them and the water lines...
TB, the outdoor shower could be used to rinse/wash dishes, so with the addition of a Coleman stove and ice cooler, we have a simple but effective "outdoor kitchen."

We do 90% of our cooking outside our Safari even in cold weather. We setup a table with a Solari Stainless stove and hook up to a 10lb. tank. When it is cold we set up windbloc screens that we had made.

Outdoor grill, ice-coolers, canopy, folding chairs and table, firewood... isn't that what the pickup truck is used for?
Keep an Airstream an Airstream... let the wannabe's have their foldout kitchen. :-)...
Anytime someone points out that their trailer has a fold-out kitchen, and my AS doesn't, I hand them a roll of tin-foil and tell them "Here, make your's silver." (Just KIDDING !)

Yee-hawwwwwwwww~!.....let's start some campsite conflict. Who needs an oudoor kichen - we can heat things up rather nicely without it.

After all, didn't we buy 'em for a bit of rest and relaxation.

This is the wrong place to ask, but that Swiss box in a car is a brilliant concept. Note the age, enthusiasm, and attractiveness of the couple, though.
Most of us were like that.....once. Don't mean to be presumptuous, but I like to cloak my not-so-youthful body and jaded emotions with convenience and comfort, hoping it will make the trade-off more bearable.

I'm trying to think of the American car manufacturer who came up with a camping car. It was a SUV type vehicle; the back opened up and out came an attached tent, I believe.

The concept failed miserable; very few were sold, and they stopped making them. Obviously, we North Americans are after the same "trade-off."

Simple, but elegant.

Oh, those Europeans. I gotta say that is very cool..lots of work and heaven forbid you should forget how it goes back together! But cool nonetheless.

It was the Pontiac Aztek.
