Only problem is you would need to be pluged in. And watch your power consumption. I dont like them, but if you do they sell these.


I looked at those - they aren't dependable enough based on the reviews. Probably going w genset so for more anything more than a brief cook I'd turn the generator on.

WebstaurantStore. You're welcome.

This is where many professionals buy for their operation(s). Great prices and I've never had an issue with quality. I buy from them for my home kitchen as well, other than knives.

I have several of these, and a few of the cheaper ones as well. I like them OK but prefer the tabletop butane burners, even if they won't get as hot.

I'm a customer there. I purchased some pandemic stuff from them including containers and a vacuum sealer. The unit you suggested looks good, thanks.

Bump for updates.

My wife and I have been looking at TTs as they come up and we're zeroing in on a GD TT. Large single-bowl sink with lots of counter space, a huge drawer for pots and pans, and ticks many of the other boxes as well. We continue to look, but of the one's we've seen, this is position 1. Does anyone have experience with this TT?
Thanks!

No experience. Nice layout except I don’t see a pantry. After having decent size dedicated storage for food for the last 10 years, I can’t imagine being without one.

However, it does have nitrogen filled tires! (Sorry, couldn’t resist)

I think it is a nice floorplan for 2 people, but it definitely doesn't have a lot of storage for food or clothing. That would be the only real drawback I see by looking at just the floorplan. Also, is there a designated place to put that removable table when it's removed? That would be a real consideration for me since I wouldn't want to lay it on the bed or put it in the shower or.....

The table has dedicated storage under the bed. There's lots of room under there.

We went back and looked at it again after looking at a number of others. It has a large passthrough and more drawer space in the kitchen than other trailers.

The other we like is a bit smaller but manages to be a more open plan. The bath is smaller but neither of us thought it was too small. This one is shorter and lighter but has even more counter space and the tv can be seen from anywhere inside. With the 22rbe, the TV can't be seen from the bedroom (if that matters to you).

This points out the classic RV conundrum. Floor plan, tow vehicle and cost. They all have to match.

Floor plan is the most important. You can change tow vehicles, you can refinance but the floor plan stays. Unless you sell the TT.

To answer the OPs question. The best kitchen is the one the person doing the cooking likes. Considering suggestions from others is a good way to start.

Good luck

I do not want to be a meany here---but, after RVing for over 35 years in one form or another, I have never seen a BMW in front of a trailer. Not saying it can't be done.
Chose wisely and think safety.

I saw one at a stop light. He rolled the window down and I asked if he had any Grey Poupon. He said "But of course" and just drove off.
