31SQB Outdoor Kitchen

The 31SQB kitchen is a smaller one. It has a sink with hot/cold faucet, but no drain!!! The refridgerator is SMALL and to tell you the truth we thought we would never want to use one so we opted for this small kitchen only because we liked the bunk area for the kids. That being said, I wish like heck that we had gotten a bigger kitchen!! If you're going to get one, do it right and get the bigger one. I am envious of all those that park around me and have the bigger ones. They offer so much more room and a dawg gone drain for the sink would sure be nice! Either do it right or don't do it all. If you go half way like we did, you will likely regret it.

unless it is a huge downpour the only meal getting cooked inside is breakfast.

We got our 2012 Laredo 303TG at the end of March and I LOVE the outdoor kitchen. The only thing that I have noticed is that because of it... I am hardly ever inside the camper! The wife has used the oven a few times and the microwave also, but the indoor stove has not seen any use yet. It is especially nice to be able to cook outside when it's hot, makes it stay nice and cool inside with the AC on. At least that's what the wife says, since I am barely allowed inside anymore.

We have only been out once since we bought ours but loved the outdoor kitchen. Would be nice to have propane frig but sure kept alot of mess outside and foot traffic. Large door was nice to have overhead as well. Now just need to find pans/ griddle to fit the two burner swing out stove a bit better.

Mine is like a half kitchen. I have had the rig out 3 times and have used it every time. Love I can get my beverages without going inside. It also has its own electric awing. It keeps you nice and dry.

I love ours. Now that we have it, I'll never have another camper without it. We have been doing most of the cooking outside. It's a bummer to have a 110 fridge, but oh well. My only complaint is that the BBQ grill hose doesn't completely reach around to the kitchen, but I'm going to buy a longer one since Keystone is being goofy about it.

Mine is exactly like yours.. except NO AWNING!!!! Wow!!

I gotta ask though. Do you ever wonder why they didn't just go ahead and make a drain for that sink?

Sore Head

Paul --
If you keep banging your head in frustration about your outdoor kitchen (no drain in sink, no awning) and now your "crappy brake controller", you are going to end up with one BIG headache !
And besides, you are getting close to using up your quota of the banging head smilie!

I guess they figure you will just have gray water back there...Lets hope so!
It would be nice to have a drain.
I love the awing. It is covers all of the kitchen plus the bathroom door.

Yeah, I hear ya. I will say, even with all the head banging and headaches, I do still enjoy my camper!!!! I just like to emphasize the small things that are wrong hoping that someone can/will learn from my mistakes or oversights.

I will try to keep them to a minimum.

I used the inside kitchen once. I baked some biscuits in the oven.....as usual the bottoms got really browned.

Love the odk, last unit I would carry a Coleman road trip grill, set that beast up every trip, break it back down, change from grill to griddle to pot top depending on what the dw wanted to cook. Lugged ice chests around, and a big plastic tote with plastic ware, plates, cups, utensils. And with several neck fusions over the years it literal was a pain in the neck.

Now none of that! The sink does drain in the black tank but turn the water on full when dumping and it helps clean the tank. I did take the grill that came with it and throw it in the garage. Bought an Olympian stainless steel grill and love it.

Have a Sprinter 311BHS. Used our inside kitchen twice due to poor weather. Really like the outdoor kitchen for all our drinks, sink for quick washes, and stove for cooking breakfast outside. Keeps the grease smell out of the camper. I would not go with out and will have one in our next one.

Smile wish I had a outdoor kitchen

I have a toyhauler and no out door kitchen. But while camping I'am always the cook. I use a foldup table coleman stove. The beacon and sasuage splatters every where. Use the BBQ for steaks or Rancha meat for tacos. The only thing that we have used in the trailer is the microwave. and the oven for brownies. The point is no grease to clean up no foul oders. My spelling is bad just bear with me. The coleman stove has the small tanks, The BBQ works off my quick disconnect and the trailer regulator. I use a 25' high pressure hose just for safety.

Does that one connect to your camper's gas line? I was wondering about the ones that do and if the low pressure was an issue on those like the RVQ's that come with the TT and the outdoor kitchen stove (at least my ODK stove is weak flame).

I have a 2011 291TG with outdoor kitchen. We use it almost exclusively. My camper also came with the factory BBQ grill and mount. Only used the factory grill 1 time, had more than an hour tryin to cook 4 hamburgers. Then bought the Olympian Stainless grill. It connects right to the quick connect gas line, mounts right to the factory mount and works great. Stores nicely in outside storage in the back on the left side. Only issue with the grill is the spark ignitor has never worked and according to most reviews I have read it never does. Just keep one of those wind proof extended lighters in the drawer, need it for the 2 burner cooktop anyway.
