At home in the kitchen

Go! Camp & Drive - - Caravan Test -

The out­side cup­boards take up the en­tire left side of the caravan. A slid­ing frame that holds the fridge/freezer and two-burner gas stove pulls out of the hull at the nose end. An­other frame that fits two plas­tic basins next to each other folds out from the tip of the slid­ing frame. The mounted tap next to the stove pro­vides hot and cold wa­ter in the basins. Two sep­a­rate draw­ers with all the cut­lery and crock­ery pull out from un­der­neath the stove. The gro­cery cup­board with its three shelves is on the op­po­site side of the door – a door that doesn’t fold down to make a work sur­face, like you usu­ally see. This door opens to the right and has quite a few can­vas pouches on the inside big enough for ce­real boxes. In the cup­board there’s a fold­edup work sur­face that’s kept in place with an elas­tic strap. It folds down, with the three shelves be­hind it. The light is at the top of the cup­board, and is bright enough that you can also see what you’re do­ing at night. At the bot­tom cor­ner of the body is a con­cealed cup­board built into the hull that’s ideal for a few boxes of long-life milk or three to four 5 ℓ wa­ter bot­tles. The “liquor cabi­net” is built into the inside of the en­trance door. The door also has can­vas pouches on the inside, and there’s space to put five wine bot­tles up­right. In front of the bot­tles there’s a fold-out sur­face that you can use as a tray.
