Working on the size of box about 35"L x14"D x 16"T.I found Yonico 15129 small lock miter router bit to make the out side egdes so there no ply showing. Still working on the front to open and the stove to slide out to cook. The box could slide out onto the tailgate. Any One with a plan is welcome.


Look forward to seeing pictures

Ryan made a nice super-sized Explorer Box style trailer. He added a slide-out kitchen in the rear, using the cardboard mockup method to work out sizing details. Visit his build thread at Biking & Camping oversized Explorer Box Build

Small builds like this could be made out of 1" xps foam as well. It would not be susceptible to moisture intrusion. My shelves in this foamie are made out of 2" foam with channeled flashing along the face. Then I used what is called the "Paper Bag Floor Process" to cover the counters and back splash. Basically glued on paper stained and then coated with polyurethane. This of course is much bigger, but could be down sized easily.

Yes, lots of ways and materials that could be used to build a trailer kitchen / galley out with. I find that wood / plywood is the easiest for average DIYers to work with.
