The kitchen is quite large by motorhome standards. With two work surfaces and a large stainless steel bench, it is a really useful cooking environment. The cooker is of course gas powered and has 4 gas burners and a good sized oven. There is a 12 volt extractor fan located above the cook top (24 volt versions are not made) and there is a 240 volt microwave above the 220 litre 24 volt refrigerator/freezer.

We replaced the gas fridge with the current Waco brand in 2003 and the unit has performed flawlessly since then (in our opinion gas fridges are a waste of space in hot tropical conditions). It features a Danfoss compressor that is very power efficient and quiet. Despite this efficiency, the fridge consumes about one third of all of our daily power production. Still, it is the price you pay for cold beer at the end of the day.


In addition to the cooking facilities inside the motorhome, we have a small pull-out gas BBQ outside the vehicle. This gets a lot of use in warmer climates when is is not a good idea to add additional heat to the inside of the bus. We also use this outside BBQ for cooking fish and other items that produce smells that are not welcome within the confines of the motorhome.
