Wanting a larger and better functioning kitchen was the motivation behind our renovation. You probably don't want to go through the extensive modifications we did but a number of members have created a kitchen across the front which allows for a larger sink and lots of counter space

Thought on those thoughtful posts!

Steve n Janna,
That looks like a lovely set up. Our lives are controlled by that first cup in the morning. At home the coffee pot is in the bedroom. My biggest concern for this is when we are doing one nighters and also foull weather. But no question this is fine solution for longer stays.

Pam, heat and safety. You are right we will need to be careful. We have a Fantastic Fan, but eric is thinking of a little computer fan by the window behind cooktop.

Ian, drool....drool, but what camper do you have?

Thanks again all.

The picture is our 13' Boler which had an original floorplan exactly the same as your Scamp

Discussions like this string are what make this site so invaluable, and especially to us newbies. My (mental) list of things NOT to do in my little FGRV is longer than the other one, but I appreciate all the safety information. Looking forward to meeting some of you at a nearby gathering in the near future.

I think one of the keys to any major rebuild/remodel, is to plan everything out before you begin, and don't make any impulse purchases before this plan is done. This way you will limit glitches along the way. If you have everything planned before you make your first purchase, you will not only end up with a more organized project, you will not mistakenly order wrong items, ones that just won't work.

Too often, the excitement of getting going sees people buying stuff that either won't work, or the workaround to make it usable is harder than needed be.

Jim, yep you are right, luckily I have a husband who (does most of the heavy lifting) keeps me controlled. Then at the end of a project I make him crazy about the finish work!

TX Barngirl....agreed this sight is so GREAT

I bought a Ikea Fyndig sink for the SS drain pan on the side.

size - 27 1/2 x 19 5/8
Also available without the side drain pan:


Both come with the strainer/drain.
I go the larger one for $39.00 at the store in Atlanta.
I also got this dohickey as well (or at least my wife did)

Carol, that is the downside of our set up - it's less convenient while on the go. We'll sometimes setup on a picnic table while traveling, but more often we just forgo hot food - or duck into fast food joint.

(By the way - I swore off drinking soap - it make me bubble)

Not that it would possibly work in the OP Scamp's new kitchen design, however, I'm thanking about removing the heavy LP bottle on the front of my 13' Scamp, removing the two-burner stove, and using this very cheap Chinese one-burner butane stove for all my cooking needs. The stoves can be mounted in place with a couple of screws from underneath.

The stove's cost about $16.00, and the fuel canisters are available in most Asian food markets, and now large sporting stores. I've used these stoves on sailboats for many years, and they work great.

Only the 8 oz canisters work in these stoves.

Just a thought about keeping things simple.

Bill
