The kitchen

The kitchen was built out with solid acacia countertops, a Dometic 3-burner propane stove/oven, and a stainless steel undermount sink. Both the sink and the cooktop have a butcher block cover to provide extra counter space as needed. The sink also comes with a hot and cold sprayer faucet and a soap dispenser to make dishwashing a breeze.

The well-appointed kitchen has more than enough storage space. It includes frameless custom cabinetry, a fridge drawer, a drawer for bowls and plates, a drawer for utensils and cutlery, and a pull-out pantry drawer. There is additionally drawer space under the oven for pots and pans, as well as a toe-kick drawer for baking sheets and cutting boards.

Under the sink is a trash can, a SHURflo water pump, a Bosch mini-tank water heater, and a sealed and vented propane locker. There is also a pull-out drawer under the bench seating that houses a Camco cassette-style toilet.
