Com­fort­able in the kitchen

Go! Camp & Drive - - Caravan Test -

On the left side out­side is a big kitchen. There’s an enor­mous slid­ing frame near the A-frame with space for two camp­ing deep freez­ers as well as two one-plate gas stoves. The door of the slid­ing cup­board and the open slid­ing frame click to­gether with clips and hooks to keep every­thing se­cure . In the test trailer the gas bot­tle is on the slid­ing frame shelf, but in the new mod­els two gas bot­tles are fas­tened to the back of the trailer. The cut­lery drawer pulls out un­der­neath the slid­ing frame. At the end of the slid­ing frame is an­other slid­ing frame that fits a sink and dish rack. This frame can be lifted up so you can do your dishes at a more com­fort­able height. In the newer mod­els this dish rack has been re­placed with a drawer that pulls out slightly higher. Be­hind the two stoves is a pot drawer that opens up to the side. The test car­a­van’s kitchen cup­board above the wheel has a door that opens up­wards and acts as a canopy, with an­other that opens up to the bottom and be­comes your work surface. The new car­a­vans have a sin­gle door that folds down. The work surface is just as clever as the en­trance step. It’s made of stain­less steel and only the front has a raised edge, making cleanup easy. Other man­u­fac­tur­ers can take note. Stor­age for your gro­ceries is in the space be­hind the work surface and con­sists of dif­fer­ent size com­part­ments where you can fit any­thing from canned food to a few bot­tles of wine. The door of the smaller cup­board right of the wheel also folds down and serves as more pack­ing space. A 20 ℓ mi­crowave oven fits in the cup­board be­hind the shelve.
