What vehicles will the Trail Chef Fit?

The trail chef fits many vehicles.  Many vehicles will require some drilling to install.  We have also developed a generic mounting plate (see mounting plate information) to assist in mounting in your vehicle.  We will shortly have installation instructions and videos available for download.  We will be adding mounting solutions for specific vehicles in the future. Alongside our “universal” mounting plate option, we will soon have a direct mounting options that will have documentation and a DIY instructional video for at home installations.

I have an SUV will the Trail Chef Fit?

Please see the unit dimensions to verify that the trail chef will fit in your vehicle.  If your lift gate is NOT level with the floor of the vehicle you may need to contact us for a custom solution at or by calling 888-835-7123.

Do I have to bolt the Trail Chef to my vehicle?

The base unit must be secured so when the drawers are extended the unit does not become unstable.  You must secure the Trail Chef and the best way to do that is to bolt it to the vehicle (or to the mounting plate—also bolted to the vehicle).

Does the Trail Chef come with a sink?

Yes. It also comes with an insert that goes on top of the sink for when more counter space is desired.  The insert is NOT suitable as a cutting board.

Do you sell propane tanks with the stove?

No you must buy propane tanks separately.  We have a propane tank holder and extension hose available to solve the tank/shelf space problem.  (The holder and hose are included with the Trail Chef Deluxe).

What is the warranty for the Trail Chef?

The Trail Chef is warrantied for 1 year for defects in workmanship.  See owners manual for more details.

Are the stove and sink and water jug warrantied?

Contact the manufacturer of those products for warranty related issues.

Do I have to assemble the Trail Chef?

Yes.  Some parts (like the heavy drawer slides) are already assembled.  Assembly takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on the product that you order.  See owners manual for assembly instructions.
