Hitch Mounted Slide out Kitchen: An amazing cooking experience made easy

Are you living the van life? or do you travel in an RV that you wished had an outdoor kitchen? Well, you might want to sit down for this one. What if I told you there was a slide-out kitchen that attaches to your already accessible hitch? So, let me welcome to the Hitch Mounted Slide Out Kitchen from Camportable.

I have always wanted an outdoor kitchen and now there is one available that can be left behind if not needed. For a van, it is perfect and frees up much-needed space inside of your unit for more important things. In other words, this Camportable hitch-mounted kitchen is all about being compact, portable, and user-friendly.

What is a hitch-mounted slide kitchen?

This kitchen type is attached to your normal trailer hitch and swings out when in use. Completely compact along your bumper and out of the way when not in use.

These hitch-mounted kitchens come in all forms, shapes, and sizes depending on your needs. The portable kitchen we are covering today has a sink, refrigerator, burners to cook, and storage areas for your supplies.

Why would someone need a hitch-mounted kitchen?

The main reason is to free up space inside your vehicle for items that normally get left at home. If you are traveling in a smaller unit you can definitely appreciate this aspect. This alone is a good reason to consider a portable hitch-mounted kitchen for your unit.

Another reason is to add a second kitchen to an RV that already has an indoor option. Cooking inside an RV can get hot and the odors from dinner seem to linger for quite some time.

Camping in a tent is great, but trying to make dinner on a campfire can be a real challenge for everyone. We have a solution that I think will make your road adventures just that much better. A hitch-mounted kitchen could be perfect for this type of camping and it allows you to keep your space.

The Camportable company is a startup based in Poland and it claims its goal is to make your outdoor experience easier. Hence, the multipurpose slide-out kitchen was developed, a kitchen-in-a-box solution that can easily be transported with any car and uses a hitch mount system with dedicated lighting.

The Story Behind Us and Our Hitch Mounted Slide Out Kitchen

Our adventure started almost 40 years ago…

Our first camping trips feel just like yesterday. Many things have evolved since then.  Exploring the world is no longer unreachable, and traveling is easier and more affordable. Still, we may all come to the same conclusion: we always have too many things to pack. Lack of space clashes with the need for comfort and compact solutions. The first thought that comes to mind is to buy a bigger car – but sometimes that’s simply not possible anymore… because there is no bigger one!

This matters most when we come to the topic of cooking wild camping.

In our experience, we have used the strangest possible solutions to make our camping life easier, especially when we were out in the wild. We tested cases, boxes, and multipurpose constructions including professional solutions available on the market. Depending on the type of trip/ car we used, we had to use completely different solutions, which added unnecessary stress & complexity and we never found an ultimate solution to the problem. So, here we are!

This is why we decided to create and put Hitch Mounted Slide Out Kitchen on the market. 

A Camportable Kitchen is to be used in a fast, efficient, safe, completely independent, and comfortable way while having a great time outdoors. So, not wasting any precious time on packing, should be spent on making great memories. 

Camportable Kitchen is efficiently designed to solve many problems.
