I have been looking at something like this for a while.

I have two young kids and having a kitchen mounted in the back for day or over night trips would be super useful. FIrst, We dont even like restaurants. Second, my kids have a limited diet. Finally, restaurants are expensive. So being able to pull this out at the bike park or ski slope would be amazing. we actually dont camp out of the disco very often since its slow on the highway, for that I use my Merc Wagon.

Anyway, Has anyone built something similar? Are there any plans available online? $1000 is a bit spendy, but I guess lumber is expensive these days

I think they are spendy because they're marketed to people who spend money. The entire thing is for show IMO.

What's wrong with just having the kitchen parts and a folding table or stand of some sort to put the grill/burners on? Is slide out a requirement you've made for this mobile kitchen? What is wrong with simply preparing food at home and planning a meal to generally be good cold or at a cooled down cooked temperature? If you're not using it for camping in remote areas I do not see the benefit of an attached slide out contraption over just taking a small grill if you have to have grilled food.

i like the concept, but practically keeping those setups clean would be a pain.

with a table and a cook stove you just set them up, cook, eat while things cool down and then just wipe down the stove and table top down.
no 90 degree corners for crumbs and grease/oils to collect in.

i may need to build some storage drawers and shelves, though, for dry goods. that would make things a bit easier and more organized.

I dont know. Maybe Im being silly. I do have smaller box that I keep stocked with everyihng I need to make a meal. In the summer it mostly lives in my merc so that I can cook on the road.
