Most of you have been on the road for years and your galley might be just as you always wanted it but if you could change it or have changed it, or on you next build do it different what would that be!!

Or you might say what those who are about to build a galley might consider a bad move or a good one.

you can vote or them all
you can change your vote

I love how simple my tear is and the galley. I do wish I had an electric outlet so I wouldn't have to run the extension cord in the hatch but could just plug it in on the side. I also would like a very simple narrow cabinet to put in my plates plasticware and cups.

My Little Guy just has the shelf for the galley

My galley (or lack thereof; view my gallery to see the latest configuration of "non-galley" features and storage) is due to
  • a) unconventional design = angular, no curves anywhere
  • b) desire to follow the "built using a 4x8 sheet of plywood" original TD/TTT concept see Wikipedia = limited space for storage
  • c) desire to fit in the wife's requirements = 2 doors, 2 windows, onboard A/C
  • d) desire to try a coupla my ideas = onboard A/C that runs with the hatch sealed, an onboard generator to go off-grid
All 4 points definitely made "conventional" galley an impossibility- no space. Since I think that one of the charms in camping is the outdoor cooking (I have not got back into that mode yet, after a 35+ year hiatus from camping), so I don't think I'll mind setting up a Coleman stove away from the trailer, or not having a built-in sink for prep or clean-up. At least on one or two day outings (an extended stay might make me want more conveniences). If I were to build it over again, it would be 2 feet longer, moving storage and generator into the nose, and making the A/C set-up a little less space consuming (no right-angle venting, but at a straight back/upward angle). Those changes would make a "galley", with cabinets, drawers, and cooking onboard feasible.
