WHY BUY A PORTABLE CAMP KITCHEN
Nowadays it seems like there is no shortage of choices when it comes to camping gear. Just go on the internet, and before long you are certain to come down with a severe case of decision fatigue. That is why we here at Campers and Gear go the extra mile to test out products in real life camping scenarios. Then we figure out what gear is worthwhile enough to attach our name to and let you know all about it.

So why wouldn’t you buy a Trail Kitchen is perhaps the better question to ask.
TONS OF STORAGE SPACE
Before we got our very own Trail Kitchens’ Camp Kitchen, we used to drag along two or more plastic containers just to pack our cooking gear. Well not anymore. Now we can fit it all in our Trail Kitchen. Now that we have tons of storage for our preferred stove, space for our pots and pans, and a dedicated utensil drawer, we could never go back to our old method. With our Camp Kitchen by Trail Kitchens we have space for our cups, plates, and even BBQ tools. Speaking of BBQ, we are past the age of wiping the delicious sauce on our pants. Thanks to Trail Kitchens we don’t have to anymore. There is even space for a roll of paper towels!
QUALITY & DESIGN
Trail Kitchens’ products are built to last beyond a lifetime. Constructed out of aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel, they have a heavy duty feel, but are very lightweight. Most of their camp kitchens range in weight from 17 pounds to 39 pounds with the heaviest being a trim 51 pounds. Many models have between 12.2 sq. ft. to 14.6 sq. ft. of table space with a 300-pound load capacity. Besides being a stable and comfortable work space from which to cook a satisfying camp meal, or if you’re that guy, do the washing up, they are easy to clean. With fantastic design features like heavy duty grab handles and door latches, you don’t have to worry about flimsy materials creating big problems. Another design feature that we found very smart was the two rail system that protects the case when sliding in and out of your vehicle. But really, the best part of Trail Kitchens’ products is that they are proudly made in the U.S.A.
