Now deeply established in the overlanding sport many thanks to its off-street elements, fridge/freezers, tenting equipment and components, Australian manufacturer ARB is branching out with a single of the greater, smarter plug-and-participate in camper kitchens out there. Its new Slide Kitchen area seems like any camper slide-out galley at to start with pull, but it swings, flips and pops into an L-shaped kitchen area significant ample to prepare (and clear up) a multi-training course food.
ARB undoubtedly just isn’t the initially manufacturer with a slide-out kitchen to sell, as we have found plenty over the years, like the Nomad Kitchen and the VanEssa tailgate kitchen area. Ordinarily these kinds of kitchens pack key products like the stove, sink and perhaps fridge onto a solitary slide-out, limiting the volume of workspace that campers have for chopping, mixing and plating.
ARB opens items up with a twin-arm style and design that produces a much far more prep-helpful out of doors cooking house. The single slide-out does technically house the stove and sink but on a independent arm beneath the worktop. That arm swings out like a folding knife blade, bringing the stove and sink out into the open up and leaving the whole 49-inch-very long (125-cm) stainless metal worktop absolutely crystal clear for food prep and camp work. A drawer below the endmost segment stores utensils, and the slide can keep up to 66 lb (30 kg) distributed evenly about the size of the worktop.
The stove/sink arm stops at 90 levels for a cozy L-formed house, and the sink extension folds outward. The collapsible sink basin pops into form, and the tempered glass stove flips for accessibility to the three burners of the Thetford stove. The layout would not consist of a drinking water provide or tap so campers will have to provide their have to clean dishes in the sink. The sink platform holds up to 33 lb (15 kg), so one thing compact and gentle like the Geyser or GoSun Flow would most likely function effectively. The sink involves a drain and doubles as a drying rack.
The Slide Kitchen can be mounted on its own or in conjunction with supplemental drawers and slides from ARB’s Outback Remedy roller drawer lineup, including the slide-out fridge shown in the photographs. It really is built to be mounted on the passenger aspect for safe and sound use when parked on the aspect of the street.
The Slide Kitchen is available in Australia and New Zealand commencing at AU$2,795 (approx. US$2,165). ARB is at present looking at the probability of bringing it to other markets, while it is not certain if or when that will happen. The firm does have a world footprint with an established existence in marketplaces that consist of Europe and the US.
