The stove we will be using is Partner Steel. We use them in our trailers and they are a good tough stove, it will be set up to be used outside easily. I did think about a removable washtub, but also thought about dealing with a full tub, at night, when you don't want to deal with it (remember I'm lazy) so we deferred back to a sink. You can store a tub in the sink, and with a pressure water outlet at the rear (Bullfinch shower port), you can have it outside too. That stuff will be coming up pretty soon as we are working on the roof and that will be taking a little time to do the first one. Here's a pic of the propane locker and appliance mounting rings installed, propane cylinder is a 20 lb horizontal tank in the front box followed by the furnace and then hot water tank. When dealing with a 6' box you don't have a lot of room to play with to keep in compliance with standards, but we worked out a pretty good inside layout, and managed to defer some weight over to the passenger side so we should end up with a nice balance.For the portable kitchen, my idea in my next camper is to use a Partner Stove from Partner Steel Company in Idaho. My concept is to create a cutout in the counter with a regular propane valve that the stove could hook up to and then have a 15' propane hose stored in the propane box to use the stove outside. Best of both worlds. I have also thought about a latch system on the counter instead of a cutout -- pro would be additional counter space that is all flat without the stove in place and then the stove could be latched or secured for travel in rough roads. I have thought about the same for a sink. If you want to save wait, instead of sink just create a cutout in the counter that is the size of a standard camping dish tub. Use a standard water jug with spigot above the dish tub and you have a nice washing/ prepping station that could be moved inside or outside. Also no need for a pump, drains, etc.

I have owned a couple Pop Up campers and prefer the lower center of gravity they provide. I'm located in B.C......what is the name of the business that builds these campers?
