The Galley is the last big project for the jPod. I have started it 3 different times only to remove my work and start again. After camping in the jPod for a weekend, we have finally decided what we want from our galley.
A new discovery is a 12V refrigerator which pulls very little on the battery -it uses the same compressor as an Engel refrigerator. In my last redesign, I am making an area for this refrigerator -with the hopes that I’ll be able to afford to put one in someday. Our friend Karl recently purchased one and I await his review of it. Here’s a picture of the Compact EdgeStar Portable Refrigerator.
Here are some photos of my recent progress on the Jpod. I dry fitted the gas struts & they make opening the back hatch so much easier. I look forward to the final install of those -I need to do some finish work first. I also mocked up the stove slide out. I bought & bent a piece of stainless steel sheet metal for the stove to slide out of. The stove will come out of the stainless hood & the stainless hood will come out of the galley hatch. In essence, it will telescope out of the back of the trailer & make more counter space. I’ve also updated the the Galley page on overlandtrailer.com with more pictures.
