FAQs

  • What’s included with a Nomad Kitchen?

    Our patent-pending Nomad Kitchen includes a stainless steel washbasin, drying rack storage basket, bamboo precise-fit cutting board, custom strap for mounting your stove’s fuel canister, hooks for hanging utensils, trash bags, and accessories, and everything you need to install the kitchen.

    The kitchen base price does not include a stove or water tank - although a compatible two-burner stove and water tank are available as add ons. The kitchen is compatible with many different stoves (see below, What stoves are compatible?). Up to two 7-gallon water tanks can fit on top of the kitchen for extended trips.

    We hope to be able to add additional accessories in the future!


     

  • What are the dimensions/weight of the kitchen?

    The kitchen weighs 60 lbs empty, not including the stove or any other accessories stored inside. When closed, the Nomad Kitchen is 25 inches deep (not including the 1/2 inch red lock tabs), 14 inches tall (not including 1/4 inch protruding mounting system in each of the four corners), and 20 inches wide (not including the protruding ratchets that extend out 1 inch on each side). When deployed, the drawer extends to provide 4 feet of additional kitchen space and can support 200 lbs.

     

  • What stoves are compatible?

    The Nomad Kitchen fits any stove with dimensions up to 14" deep, 23.75" wide, and 4.5" high.

-Camp Chef: Everest, Rainier, Teton, and Summit
-Coleman: Triton, Compact, and Classic
-Eureka: Ignite and Ignite Plus
-GSI: Selkirk 460, and Selkirk 540

  • How do I install a Nomad Kitchen?

    Installation is truly simple with the Nomad Kitchen - the unit is secured with our patent-pending tie-down mounting system which hooks into your vehicle’s cargo anchor points; standard in most vehicles. No tools required. The kitchen is sturdy, weighing 60 lbs, so we do recommend 2 people lift it in or out of the vehicle. Installation is not permanent. The kitchen is designed to be moved in and out, providing full access to your cargo area when needed.

     

  • WILL THE NOMAD KITCHEN FIT IN ANY CAR?

    We can’t guarantee fit in every car, but the Nomad Kitchen is compatible with most hatchbacks and SUVs 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” leveling risers to help clear tailgates and raised trunk sills and level the kitchen when parked on uneven ground.

    We recommend measuring your trunk to see if you have enough room using our dimensions: 25.75 inches deep (including the red lock tabs), 14.25 inches tall, and 22 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 this link to the "Does it Fit?" page.
     

  • WILL THE NOMAD KITCHEN FIT IN A PICKUP TRUCK?

    Yes, you can install the Nomad Kitchen in a pickup bed. Most trucks will come with tie-down anchors, however, in some trucks, they may just not be in the most ideal location. For the best fit, we recommend installing tie-down anchor D-rings into the floor of your bed. To mount the Nomad Kitchen to a vehicle you need a minimum of 3 tie-down anchor points that are less than 13 inches above the truck bed. If that is not already the case here are your options:

    In most pickup trucks, you can add D-ring tiedown anchors, like these, almost anywhere in your truck bed. 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. You can either install riv-nuts, like shown here, or you can use self-tapping screws to install the anchors as described here. You can put new anchors almost anywhere in your truck bed, just make sure when you are installing the riv-nuts or self-tapping screws that you check under the bed 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)
