What’s included with a Nomad Kitchen?
The patent-pending Nomad Kitchen comes with two lock in and lock out drawers equipped with:
- stainless steel washbasin
- drying rack/storage basket
- bamboo cutting board
- adjustable rubber strap for mounting your stove’s fuel canister
- four (4) hooks for hanging accessories such as utensils, trash bags, etc.
- our patent-pending universal mounting strap system
The kitchen base price does not include a stove or water tank - although we do sell compatible two-burner stoves and water tanks in our store.
The kitchen is compatible with a variety of water tanks and stoves (see below, What stoves fit in the Nomad Kitchen?)
How big is the Nomad Kitchen?
When closed, the Nomad Kitchen is 25.5 inches deep (including the 1/2 inch red lock tabs), 14.5 inches tall (including 1/2 inch protruding mounting system located above each of the 4 corners), and 22.5 inches wide (including the protruding ratchet strap mounting system on the sides).
When deployed, the drawers extend out to provide 4 feet of additional kitchen space.
What stoves fit in the Nomad Kitchen?
The Nomad Kitchen fits any stove with dimensions up to 14" deep, 23.75" wide, and 4.5" high.
The slide-out stove drawer space is compatible with many different camp stoves, including (but not limited to):
-Camp Chef: Everest* and Teton
-Coleman: Triton, Compact, and Classic
-GSI: Selkirk 460 and Selkirk 540
-Primus: Profile and Kinjia
-Jetboil: Genesis and HalfGen
-Partner Steel Co Camp Partner: 9"2 burner stove (16", 18", and 22" 2 Burner Stoves should also fit, but have not yet been tested)
*The Camp Chef Everest is the largest stove that the Nomad Kitchen was designed to fit. In order to open the Everest you will have to push and flex the side wind guards against both the inside of the stove drawer face and the outside of the clean/prep drawer face with a fair amount of pressure in order to get it to latch. This has the added benefit of holding the stove in place.
Where is the Nomad Kitchen made?
The Nomad Kitchen is designed and assembled by hand in California, USA
We have made an attempt to have as many of the Nomad Kitchen's components manufactured in the USA as possible.
Our kitchen's wooden frames, drying rack/storage baskets, propane support straps, and mounting systems are all Made in the USA. Our cutting board is manufactured in the USA from bamboo produced abroad. Our washbasins, drawer slides, plastic hangers, and fasteners are made abroad.
We continue to look for quality affordable components domestically, however, some things are just not available at this time.
How much does the Nomad Kitchen weigh?
The kitchen weighs just under 60 lbs, not including the stove or any other accessories stored inside.
How much weight can the Nomad Kitchen support?
Fully extended, the Nomad Kitchen can support up to 200 lbs. More than enough to support the weight of even the biggest meal.
Make sure your tiedown anchor points can support the weight of the kitchen along with anything you may place on or in it.
How do I mount the Nomad Kitchen in my vehicle?
Each Nomad Kitchen comes with our patent-pending universal mounting strap system.
We made installation truly simple - our universal mounting system is composed of a custom hook and ratchet strap configuration that securely anchors the kitchen to your vehicle’s cargo tie-down points (standard in most SUVs, wagons, and vans), while keeping straps out of your way.
No tools are required: just thread the straps, hook the anchors, and ratchet to secure the Nomad Kitchen.
The best part is, Installation is not permanent. The kitchen is designed to be moved in and out, providing full access to your cargo area when needed and makes for an easy transfer from one vehicle to another.
Will the Nomad Kitchen fit in any car?
We can’t guarantee fit in every car, but the Nomad Kitchen is compatible with most SUVs, crossovers, and wagons without any modification.
In most cases, if your vehicle has four tie-down anchor points, the Nomad Kitchen will fit.
Some vehicles with recessed trunk floors may require a riser to allow clearance for the drawer to slide out.
Nomad Kitchens come with two ¾" shims to help clear tailgates and slightly raised trunk sills and to level the kitchen when parked on uneven ground.
We recommend measuring your trunk to see if you have enough room using our dimensions: 25.5 inches deep (including the red lock tabs), 14.5 inches tall (including 1/2 inch protruding mounting system located above each of the 4 corners), and 22.5 inches wide (including the ratchets).
For a list of vehicles that we have tested the Nomad Kitchen in, and others that the Nomad Kitchen should fit in, please follow the link in the menu above to the "Does it Fit?" page.
Will the Nomad Kitchen fit in a pickup truck or cargo van?
Yes, you can install the Nomad Kitchen in a pickup bed or cargo van floor. Most trucks and vans will come with tie-down anchors. However, in many, the anchor points are not in the most ideal location.
For the best fit, we recommend installing tie-down anchor points or D-rings into the floor of your truck bed or cargo van floor. To mount the Nomad Kitchen to a vehicle you need a minimum of 3 tie-down anchor points on or near the floor of your cargo area. If your vehicle does not come with factory installed anchor points or the anchor points are not in an ideal location, here are your options:
In most pickup trucks and cargo vans, you can add D-ring tiedown anchors, almost anywhere in your truck bed or cargo van floor. For creating the most secure mounting system we recommend installing bolt-on tiedown anchors adjacent to where the mounting straps on your kitchen attach so you can quickly and easily pop it in and out of your favorite spot in your truck or cargo van.
You can either install riv-nuts, or you can use self-tapping screws to install the anchors. You can put new anchors almost anywhere in your truck bed or cargo van floor, just make sure when you are installing the riv-nuts or self-tapping screws that you check under the bed or floor to make sure it's clear of anything important. We recommend waiting to get your kitchen before you drill any holes so you know exactly where you want it.
If you have tiedown tracks or rails on the floor you can add bolt-on anchor hardware and adjust them to line up with the kitchen's side-mounted ratchet strap hooks and you should be good to go. (This is common in some Nissan trucks)
Will the Nomad Kitchen fit in a Minivan?
Minivans have drop-down trunks for storing the 3rd row of seats. This does add some challenges when mounting the Nomad Kitchen, but it is still possible with some creativity. You either build a platform or having one of the 3rd-row seats folded down into the storage compartment. The only challenge is easily accessing enough tie-down anchor points. We recommend installing additional D-rings as you would in a pickup truck bed or cargo van to make mounting and removal more simple in the long run.
