Where is the Nomad Kitchen made?

We have made an attempt to have as many components of the Nomad Kitchen manufactured in the USA as possible. Our kitchen's wooden frames, drying rack 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. All components are assembled and packaged by hand in California, USA. 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 empty, 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.


How do I mount the Nomad Kitchen in my vehicle?

Installation is truly simple with the Nomad Kitchen - the unit is secured with our patent-pending tie-down mounting system, which hooks onto your vehicle’s cargo tie-down anchor points; standard in most vehicles. No tools are required: just thread the straps, hook the anchors, and ratchet to secure the Nomad Kitchen. Best part - 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 the next.

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, crosovers, 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: 25.75 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 the link in teh menu above 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 many trucks, 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. 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, you can add D-ring tiedown anchors, 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, or you can use self-tapping screws to install the anchors. 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)
