Is Nomad developing a Fridge/Cooler Slide? Can I mount another Slide on top of my Pantry?
Absolutely and yes!
We are hoping to release our own Fridge/Cooler Slide in Fall 2021. We are currently prototyping a Nomad Kitchen fridge/cooler slide that will offer a simple bolt-on (drill free) application into our system's existing top mounts. We plan to make it compatible with all our current and future products.
The Nomad Kitchen Cooler/Fridge Slide that is currently under development is being designed to fit the following electric coolers and fridges, plus others that fit within the slide's 17.5" carrying width.
ARB: 37QT, 50QT
DOMETIC: CFX3-25, CFX3-35, CFX3-45, CFF-35, CFF-45, CF-50
ENGEL: MR040, MT35F-U1-P, MT45F-U1-P, MT27F, MT17F, MT45F-U1CD-P

MOUNTING ANOTHER COMPANY'S FRIDGE SLIDE
There are a few important things to be aware of if you are going to mount another company's fridge/cooler slide to our systems.
The top of our Pantry is 20" wide x 25" deep, so consider the size of the slide you want to mount to your Pantry. Longer slides can be mounted as long as there is room for at least 6 screws to attach it to the top of our Pantry. Depending on the size of the slide, you may need to remove the bolt on footman loops on top of the Pantry and mount the slide over the mounting straps. If so, make sure at least one of the screws used to mount your slide attaches to the Pantry just behind the rear mounting strap to fulfill the strap guide role that the top mounted footman loop plays. Same goes if mounting a slide to the top of one of our Kitchens.
Make sure to secure your Kitchen and/or Pantry drawer via the mounting straps to your vehicle before mounting your fridge sliide on top to ensure the system is secured. Otherwise, you may find too much slack in the mounting straps. Make sure the screws you use to mount the slide do not block the path that we have designated for the straps.
When drilling holes for another company's slide make sure to fully extend the drawer before drilling pilot holes and make sure to use 1/2" long wood screws so the screws do not protrude into the drawer. Longer screws may scratch the drawer and/or countertop insert.
We have spoken with multiple electric cooler and refrigerator slide manufacturers and they all require at least 6 wood screws to ensure the slide is mounted securely.
Drilling holes in any of our Kitchen or Pantry products voids the warranty.
How do I mount the Nomad Kitchen in my vehicle?
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.
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?
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 directly below the mounting straps on your kitchen so you can quickly and easily pop it in and out of your favorite spot in your truck or cargo van.
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.
Does the Nomad Kitchen need support legs?
No. When mounted properly using our universal mounting straps, Nomad Kitchens and Pantries operate as a cantilever (extends horizontally and is supported at only one end).
How do I level my Nomad Kitchen?
Nomad Kitchens and Pantries come with a bolt on leveling shim to help level your kitchen when your trunk is at a slight slope or to help clear slightly raised trunk sills. This leveling shim can add an incline to help level your kitchen when parked on a slightly uneven surface. However, those familiar with roof top tents, RVs, or vanlife will know that leveling your vehicle with leveling blocks or traction boards will make for a more optimal experience.
