Sorry if this shouldn't be "bumped" but l was wondering what type of "kitchen" you could have if you didn't have a trailer? Like a ute or something...

We started with a folding gas stove stand & an old card table, then I lay-buyed a fold out kitchen from K-mart, it cost about $60 I think, on special.

I've seen very similar things in KMart recently for I think around $79.

Thanks amanda, l will check them out either on Thursday or Saturday :) Will probably buy one, even though l've never been camping before and might not go again, mum and dad could always use it. I'm assuming it folds down small enough to fit into a ute?

I ended up travelling 1.5 hours to gosford and then back again for this:

I'm pretty happy with it, it also doubles as a table.

Looks ok to me, how much? I was at Penrith Kmart the other day & they don't have a single kitchen :roll: good to see you tracked one down.

That looks like a fairly workable unit Missy.

I was there as well! I went on Thursday night and l didn't find any, then rang mt druitt, fairfield, parramatta etc. no one has one. This unit cost $99, bit pricey but l'm pleased with it. My boyfriend laughed when he saw it and said "you've never been camping before and you bought this?" he doesn't think l'll like it. I reckon l will as l work outdoors so being outdoors doesn't bother me.

Gypsy - it is fairly solid :), l am looking forward to using it!

You'll just have to prove him wrong then, won't you Missy.

I have a fold up aluminium kitchen but I dont think I would buy one again.

I think next time I would spend the extra coin and get a drifta setup. not as compact - but far more practical.


currently i use :

and

The table is great - but I can see it wearing out. I think a small trestle with a ply top would be better
The kitchen is great but takes too long to setup so unless im spending 3+ days in a spot I tend to leave it at home.
Its also a little flimsy and doesnt sit well unless on level ground.

I think the drifta carback is the ideal for me

Like I say fairly pricey compared to other options out there and certanly doesnt pack up to under 20cm - but I think its a far better built and practical solution for me any way. I dont need as many storage boxes as the kitchen itself can contain many of the items which would other wise require storage in a box.
