I may have a pull out Coleman gas stove in the rear galley. I'll keep posting as I make progress.
    I had the manufacturer of my on order TT remove the propane cooking appliance and replace w/ an induction burner. Like you, I see the use.
    Useful attributes for this type of appliance: an automatic shut off feature and a diameter big enough for the largest pot you'll normally use. I went w/ a 12" CI skillet as my biggest pot since I rarely use anything bigger.

    HJ, I tested my induction burner at home before making a decision for the TT. Did a fine job of making candy which is fussy about sustained heat.As well the readout was easy to read whether a pot was atop or not.

    I just look at the induction as a convenience if the weather does not allow me to cook outside. But the one I have, can be taken out and used as a secondary cooking surface if I need it.

    Dual usage is smart from a cost and weight point of view.

    Got a little further. Paying work keeps getting in the way.

    Got the floor attached to the frame. Put up the side walls with the interior skins on already. Then the back wall next to the bed.



    Got the ceiling in a framed out the nose.





    In the morning I will install the last piece of the inside skin. Then on to the outside Galley. Right now it is a blank canvas. There will be a cooler on a roll out a Coleman Gas stove and some storage for cast iron and food ETC. Most of my cooking will be outside.

    I can only post 4 pictures in a thread soooo. Here is where I am now. Those little plywood discs allow me a 1 inch gap to get the trailer out of my shop.

    Well the summer got away from me. I've made some progress on my build and will take it out next week for a trial run. It is not finished, but campable I hope. I have ordered a gear hinge to replace the aluminum piano hinge I started with. The bump out slides out and locks and the lid drops down and is held tight with draw clamps.

    I forgot to show the galley. It need gas shocks yet and shelves finished. The only picture I could find was before the hatch was on. You get the idea.

    That is insane awesome.
    I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.
