ARB camp kitchen slides and flips into gourmet backcountry cook dinner station
Currently deeply recognized in the overlanding match thanks to its off-street parts, fridge/freezers, camping gear and accessories, Australian model ARB is branching out with one of the much larger, smarter plug-and-play camper kitchens out there. Its new Slide Kitchen area seems to be like any camper slide-out galley at initially pull, but it swings, flips and pops into an L-shaped kitchen area large ample to prepare (and cleanse up) a multi-system food.
ARB certainly isn’t really the to start with brand with a slide-out kitchen area to promote, as we’ve viewed plenty about the a long time, such as the Nomad Kitchen area and the VanEssa tailgate kitchen. Generally such kitchens pack main machines 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 things up with a twin-arm style and design that creates a substantially far more prep-helpful outdoor cooking place. The solitary slide-out does technically residence the stove and sink but on a separate 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 complete 49-inch-lengthy (125-cm) stainless steel worktop absolutely obvious for meals prep and camp get the job done. A drawer beneath the endmost segment outlets utensils, and the slide can maintain up to 66 lb (30 kg) dispersed evenly over the duration of the worktop.
The stove/sink arm stops at 90 degrees for a snug L-formed place, and the sink extension folds outward. The collapsible sink basin pops into condition, and the tempered glass stove flips for accessibility to the a few burners of the Thetford stove. The structure doesn’t consist of a drinking water supply or tap so campers will have to deliver their possess to wash dishes in the sink. The sink system retains up to 33 lb (15 kg), so something compact and gentle like the Geyser or GoSun Circulation would probably perform perfectly. The sink incorporates a drain and doubles as a drying rack.
The Slide Kitchen area can be mounted on its possess or in conjunction with more drawers and slides from ARB’s Outback Answer roller drawer lineup, like the slide-out fridge demonstrated in the photos. It really is made to be mounted on the passenger side for protected use when parked on the facet of the highway.
The Slide Kitchen area 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 marketplaces, nevertheless it is not absolutely sure if or when that will materialize. The firm does have a worldwide footprint with an established existence in marketplaces that involve Europe and the US.
