RVs are perfect for camping, vacations, and long road trips away from home. With a good RV, you and your family can create fun and memorable experiences. However, not all RVs are ‘born’ the same. Some of them are more comfortable and better suited for RV life than others.
In this article, I will show you the nine best front kitchen travel trailers. These are RVs that have their kitchens located in the front right next to their living areas. And the kitchens are typically larger than those in other types of RVs.
So if you are thinking of renting or purchasing an RV with a large kitchen for easy food preparation, they are the type of RV you should get.
All the front kitchen travel trailers I have put on the list below are well-rated by both users and critics. With this in mind, here are the top 9 practical front kitchen travel trailers.
Top Front Kitchen Travel Trailers
The Forest River Flagstaff Micro Lite Travel Trailer is, in my opinion, the best front kitchen travel trailer currently available on the market. I came to this conclusion because of four key reasons.
First, it has a very spacious kitchen for a travel trailer. Most travel trailers do not have a spacious kitchen. So the fact that this one has a spacious kitchen makes it better than most travel trailers out there.
Second, it is available in many versions. Most travel trailers only have seven or fewer floor plan options. In contrast, this one has seventeen-floor plan options. What this means is that there are abundant options for you to consider.
It is very unlikely that one of these camper’s many floor plan options will not impress you. The best Forest River Flagstaff Micro Lite front kitchen model is the 25FKS model. I say this because its kitchen is the best planned.
Third, it is a lightweight travel trailer. As I mentioned above, this travel trailer is available in seventeen different versions. None of the seventeen versions weighs more than 5,500 pounds.
In contrast, most travel trailers weigh between 8,000 and 12,000 pounds. So if you want a lightweight front kitchen travel trailer you should strongly consider this Forest River camper.
Lastly, it is a feature-rich travel trailer. Most lightweight travel trailers do not have many features. In contrast, this one has many features and amenities.
Its features and amenities include a rear camera, a sizeable refrigerator, multiple hardwood cabinets, strong fiberglass walls, a durable aluminum frame, a strong air conditioner, and a beautiful digital awning for outdoor leisure.
The Living Lite Camplite travel trailer is one of the lightest practical front kitchen campers in the world! (It weighs less than 4,000 pounds)
The camper is available in fourteen versions. The best front kitchen version is the CL 11FK version/ model. This is because its front kitchen is spacious and perfectly positioned next to the living area. So if you want to travel with your partner and/ or kids, it is a great option because you will be able to interact with them in the living area while preparing meals.
Despite being lightweight, this camper has a good sleeping capacity and a spacious living room thanks to a sturdy slide-out.
The exterior design of this travel trailer is very impressive. It features an appealing aerodynamic design. This design plus the fact that this travel trailer is very lightweight means it won’t affect the gas mileage of your towing truck or SUV. The interior design is equally impressive. It is spacious and features beautiful solid wood cabinets, brilliant LED lighting, easy-to-clean vinyl flooring, attractive furniture, and a quality bed.
In addition to the features I have mentioned above, this travel trailer comes with solid surface kitchen countertops, a beautiful quilted comforter, aluminum tank brackets, a power awning, and a 24-inch modern TV.
This is the second Forest River brand travel trailer on this list. I called the first one the best front kitchen travel trailer. Like its cousin (the number 1 front kitchen travel trailer), this travel trailer is also an amazing front kitchen camper.
It has many of the same features as the Flagstaff Micro Lite but it is also considerably different. The main difference between it and the Flagstaff Micro Lite is the overall design.
There are sixteen-floor plan options for this trailer available. However, only the 26VFKS and the 26FKWS models have got front kitchens. And the best one between these two is the former.
This travel trailer is generally spacious. It has a spacious living area and a spacious kitchen.
The fact that this camper has all the standard features and many additional features is the reason why I included it in this list. Its features include a kitchen, a sink, countertops, a refrigerator, an air conditioner, a bike rack (optional), a living area, sleeping areas, a full bathroom, a smoke detector, vaulted ceilings, drawers with metal guides, and safety features.
Keystone RV has been making excellent quality RVs for a very long time. This particular travel trailer, which is available in 44 different floor plan versions, is their best RV to date!
The best practical front kitchen Keystone RV Hideout model is the 39FDKS model. Other front kitchen models of this trailer include the Hideout 27DBS and the Hideout 272LHS models.
The thing that stands out the most about the Keystone RV Hideout Travel Trailer is its classic design. This trailer has a classic exterior and a classic interior. So if you are a sucker for classic RVs, you should strongly consider it.
Another thing that stands out about this RV is the fact that it is relatively safe compared to most RVs. This is because it has many safety features including a smoke detector, a fire extinguisher, a cooking gas detector, a smoke detector, and safety chains.
The fact that it is feature-rich also stands out. Its many features include a refrigerator, a microwave, surround speakers, and a 30,000 BTU furnace.
This trailer also comes with an electric front landing gear and electric awning.
In brief, this is a front kitchen travel trailer that has everything.
This Dutchmen front kitchen travel trailer is an amazing 3-person trailer that is very sleek and comfortable.
If you decide to buy or rent this trailer, you will be able to stay warm in the evening in front of its powerful furnace before going to sleep in its amazing king-style bed.
You will also be able to freshen up in a walk-through bathroom in the morning before making a full breakfast in the spacious front kitchen. Or while your partner makes for your breakfast in the kitchen.
Speaking of breakfast, after you have prepared it or your partner has prepared it, you can take it in a booth dinette with your partner or while lounging in a super comfortable theater seat.
You will have plenty of space to store your belongings, your utensils, and everything else before you leave because it has multiple storage areas. You will also have plenty of space to store your dry goods because it has well-positioned pantry shelves.
In case your food items that need cold storage, you can store them in this camper’s massive 10 cubic foot refrigerator.
One of the most unique things about this Dutchmen RV Kodiak Ultimate model is its touchscreen operating system. The system allows you to monitor and control most of its features using the RV’s control tablet.
It also allows you to control the RV using its complementary smartphone app. In other words, what I am trying to say is that you can control most of this camper’s features while relaxing outside under its awning or sleeping in its king-size bed.
All Dutchmen RV Kodiak Ultimate models including this model have aluminum frames, insulated sidewalls, heated floors, and a fireplace. They are campers you can use to travel in any season.
While this BASECAMP 16 travel trailer is not perfect for families (it only sleeps two), it is perfect for those who want to travel solo or with a partner.
This is because it is extremely tough and lightweight (weighs just 2,585 pounds) and, therefore, perfect for going everywhere motorable. It is also because it has all the basic features including a front kitchen for comfort while on the road.
So if you want to visit that destination you have always dreamt of visiting whether off-road, off-grid or somewhere frequented by other campers and travelers, get this camper. The second best thing about this camper is its front kitchen.
The kitchen is practical and has a two-burner cooktop for preparing hot meals, a refrigerator for preserving food, and storage areas for utensils and dry goods.
If you are wondering what the best thing about this camper is, wonder no more. It is its design. The design is very sleek and modern.
The frame of the BASECAMP 16 is made of a tough aluminum alloy. And its axle is well-positioned and supported by a brilliant suspension system. All these things plus the trailer’s big wheels make it perfect for off-road/ off-grid adventures.
This front kitchen travel trailer from BASECAMP features two seats/ benches in the living area. These can be converted into a single spacious 76 by 76 inches bed or two small bunk-size beds.
One of the things I like the most about this travel trailer is its two showers. It comes with an indoor wet bath and an outdoor shower. So depending on where you are and how hot it is outside, you can take a shower outdoors if you get this camper. You can also use the outdoor shower to wash your bike or bicycle.
I also like the fact that this camper comes with two doors which make it airy and easy for two people to live in despite its small size.
Its pop-up charging station is also worth a mention.
In a nutshell, the BASECAMP 16 is a brilliant lightweight front kitchen travel trailer.
If you purchase this front kitchen travel trailer, your family will be very happy. Everyone will be very happy because it is a super spacious travel trailer.
Its living area and its kitchen are particularly spacious. The living area features a foldable sofa and an XL size dinette that will sit five people comfortably and can be converted into a spacious sleeping space. It can be made bigger by deploying a massive slide-out on one of its walls.
The kitchen is also spacious as mentioned. It has a large countertop for food preparation, three pantries for storing paper goods, snacks, and non-perishables, and cabinets for storing dishware and cookware.
Right next to the kitchen there is a large 12 cubic foot refrigerator for storing perishables. So if you get this trailer to travel with your family, you will have enough space to carry enough food and snacks and to prepare warm meals for everyone.
This CrossRoads RV travel trailer also comes with a spacious bathroom near the back with everything you need to clean up and to do important toilet business.
At the back of this camper, there is a private bedroom that features a king-size bed for you and your partner. The bedroom includes wardrobes and storage areas. This bedroom in addition to the other sleeping spaces in this trailer can comfortably accommodate six people.
If you get this travel trailer, you will confess that the manufacturer did not cut any corners when designing and building it. It is absolutely brilliant!
Earlier in this article, I said the Forest River Flagstaff Micro Lite Travel Trailer is the best front kitchen travel trailer and I gave you the reasons why.
