Roll-out Kitchen

Postby mr_grumble » Sat Apr 07, 2007 12:13 pm

Hey guys, Im fitting out my own camper and am about to tackle the kitchenette.
I've looked at both types that attach to the inside of the tailgate and those which are on rollers.
so far I think I would preffer the roller type, the question is where can I pick-up the roller mechanism ?
I've diplomatically been to some of the local camper manufactures and all seem uninterested in letting on as to where I can pick them up.
Any suggestions ??

Geez, I really hope your talking about me making the kitchenette and not the telescopic rollers ::()
The intention is to make my own kitchenette, but I definately intend to buy the roller mechanisms and not make them, unless you have a simple design you wish to share :)
Cheers, Steve

Does it have to be on rollers? Mine's on polyurethane sliders and quite easy to get in and out, but i guess rollers would be VERY easy ;)

Jeeps, sh1t hot setup there :+
Looking at it closely, the right angled section at the end, is that hinged to the main section ? If so, which way does it move to pack up, around so as to be in-line with the main section or the other way so its in next to the main section (in front of the cooker) ?
Was this your handy work or purchased this way ?
Some more pics of that sucker would be great if you have them ?
Cheers Steve

The left bit (where the wine bottle and yellow tub is) is made of 3 seperate parts. The top which is laminated slides up and off and sits on top of the stove and drawers section during transit. The bottom bit with the yellow tub on it, the legs slide up then the end bit with legs hinges back and it slides up and seperates from the corner and slides in front of the stove and drawers during transit. Then, the curved laminated top on the corner piece lifts up then hinges down flush then that whole corner bit swings back on it's hinges and clips snug on the end. It looks like this when packed up (the legs have not been folded up underneath yet):
