5 Awesome Travel Trailers with Outdoor Kitchens

When you’re in the market for a new towable RV and reviewing the layout and features, include travel trailers with outdoor kitchens at the top of your list. Cooking outside is a great way to eliminate smoke and odors from your living space. It also adds a functional and fun way to entertain guests, participate in tail tailgaters, and enjoy meals outdoors.

Outside kitchens are commonly positioned at the rear of the RV or along the entrance side of the rig. The upgrade offers RV owners more space and extra storage options without compromising interior features or amenities.

We did our research and compiled a selection of the best travel trailers with outdoor kitchens. The list includes various floorplans and tow sizes to meet the diverse needs of our audience.

I hope one of these great options inspires a desire for adventure! From small, lightweight trailers to large multi-bedroom rigs, there’s an option for everyone, from solo travelers to couples to large families. Discover an RV that will be the best fit for your lifestyle and will elevate your camping experiences.
