Should I remove basement located outdoor kitchen?

We have a 2009 fleetwood excursion 40x. One of the optional features we inherited (newer to us) is an outdoor kitchen housed on a basement slide out tray. This kitchen had a sink with water pump, grill, small refrigerator, storage, etc. It has never been used as evidenced by the tape and styrofoam in the fridge. We won't use it and it takes up an entire basenent section. Should I remove it? Will not having it decrease used coach value? Is there any reason I should keep it? Thanks.

If you are sure you would not use this I would remove. It will provide more storage space and will reduce you weight as I can imagine how much it weights.

If the kitchen comes out as a unit I would think you could easily remove.

Keep & install back when you are getting rid of the RV or try and sell it, there may be someone out there that could use something like this >>> tailgaters may be interested.

I believe a fellow forum member "huntski" has the same coach and has posted on its use. Might try and PM Tim. I may be having a senior moment but believe this info is accurate.

It probably adds value on resale, but I like you would never use it. It'd pull it out and try to sell on Craigs list or a forum. If it doesn't sell and you have a place to store it, i'd keep it for the new owner if/when you sell it.

Thanks guys. I really think in going to have it removed. It will gain me one more full pass through with a slide.

Thought I heard my ears ringing! I have the outside kitchen and at first was like you, felt it was waisted space and wanted to remove it.

In the time waiting on my get a roundtoit we have used it quit often and love it. Since we have yet to fill our other bays up with stuff I can say its really not in the way. Nice to have a cold beverage outside and a sink to wash your hands in and we're not tailgaters!

Don't rush your decisions!

It was a must have for me on my 40x. I believe the 2009 and 2010 are smaller than the 2008 and previous. They are hard to come by in the later model years. I use mine to wash hands, wash cooking utensils, wet a rag etc. Not having to go inside for that all the time is priceless. Also good for a prep table. If you never cook outside and want to get rid of it you could probably sell it pretty fast. I looked for months to find one just incase I found a 40x without one that I had to have. I never found one used. Also included with that package is a quick disconnect for hooking up a grill to the coach propane. I threw the provided grill away and went with a Weber q2000. Good Luck! JD
