Let me see now. I have a nice Weber grille, and have seen some larger grilles on swing arms attached to the bumper hitch. I have a basement refrigerator/ freezer on a pull out slide, and hot and cold water at the outdoor shower, and a big awning. Seems like with a little planning and organizing I could come up with the "outdoor kitchen" you talked about.

Same here ... I don't mind carrying stuff I want but I also want the ability to put it where I want to balance the load. I prefer the "everything portable" concept. When the component wears out I replace it ... or find something better.

Yes of course it can be done, but me personally, the more convenient and less setup lends to ease of use. I open a door, and slide the whole kitchen out. In one minute I am set up. If unfavorable weather blows in, push slide in, and close door. Ease of use is what it is all about!

Getting back to the reason to cook outside, the smell.
I know my Fan-tastic fan does a super job moving a large volume of air. The vent is located just above the micro and stove. Crack the window over the sink turn the fan on high and it sucks all the odors away immediately. It's almost as good as my Viking hood at home. I love garlic but man it is very fragrant!
It wouldn't be that hard to vent the micro outside also. Not needed in my coach though.

Same here. When looking for coaches, if it had an outdoor kitchen, it was eliminated from our list of possible purchases.

Us too. Don't want a tailgating, party machine. Seems every 40'+ coach has an outside kitchen replete with fridge. We cross it off our list.

That's what's great about having the option. There are those who want one and those that don't. I can think of many options that I wanted that others don't. I could give a hoot about a half bath, and there are those that can't live without them.

But what about the LED party light strings and under-chassis mood lighting?

Our Thor Ace 29.3 has the "out door kitchen" which has a sink, a small refer, and some cabinets. I also has a small portable gas grill which is stored in a separate compartment. After taking the grill out and setting it on its stand, I snap a propane hose onto it and the other end snaps onto a fitting just under the coach by the outdoor kitchen. Then I turn on the gas at the hook up and we are ready to bbq steaks, burgers or whatever. Maybe not a true outdoor kitchen but we like it. For us, we have used it on every camping trip. Of course if we want to heat beans etc. we generally do it inside on the stove while I am cooking the steaks. So far, our Ace has been a very nice coach.

Then you would probably love a 2009 Newmar All Star!!! The kitchen opens up to the outside.

Here is one that MHSRV had at one point

Used 2009 Newmar All Star

X2; we have the same arrangement and love to cook but we don't have a problem with odors or humidity buildup.

We grill outside a lot but would never want to set up the whole kitchen outside. It's a lot easier to do it inside and not duplicate things like dishes and utencils, pots, pans or else having to haul them in and out. Also, bugs, flies, heat, sun, cold, rain, etc. Nope...grilling is fine but the rest is done indoors. As full-timers, it would be wasted space and for resale...not many would want it.

Also, to dispel some rumors about Class A buyers...we were full-timers for 16 years in a motorhome, traveled constantly, and we were old. We didn't eat in restaurants a lot. We enjoyed cooking in our 'home'. Some Class A folks really do still 'camp'. We did public parks or boondocking in the wilds all the time.

Man. That thing is either the ultimate tailgating machine or the most expensive food truck I've ever seen.
