As a camper who’s also a cook, I refuse to make hotdogs when we’re out in the woods. We have 2 large bins of kitchen gear, plus a stove, and we use it all. It’s definitely a pain in the neck to carry all that stuff back and forth. But now, a pair of Albertans have come up with what I think is a genius way to run your camp kitchen; the Camp Caddy.
The couple has invented a kitchen on wheels; it comes with cupboard space, tabletop, racks for hanging towels, a slot for your campstove, and even pop up legs so you’re not scratching around at dirt level.
The genius of this isn’t just in what it holds, it’s that it’s pop up and pop down, and it fits in your trunk. I’d love to try it to see how much gear it will truly store, but even if I still had to lug one other bin along, being able to pull up the telescoping handle and pulling this one into place makes so much sense. It’s one of those ideas that makes you wonder “why didn’t I think of that?”
Check out the Camp Caddy Kickstarter Campaign, and check out their video below. They’re about $200, and there’s a price break if you pledge to buy 2! Camp Caddy says it will ship in May 2015 if their campaign is funded.
