The Ultimate Car Camping Setup

The Ultimate Car Camping Setup

Full DIY step-by-step instructions:

It’s a pretty simple setup that works great for me. Anybody can build this, I didn’t really have much experience before this.

Parts List:
– 1/2″ or 3/4″ plywood or solid wood if you can afford it (I used almost an entire 4′ x 8′ sheet)
– Two 2.5 gallon water jugs:
– Plastic mixing bowl for the sink (I got mine at Ikea)
– Adhesive Vinyl (to cover the plywood for the counter top):
– Heavy duty drawer slides:
– Like-It modular drawers (I got a tall medium drawer and a short medium drawer):
– Iceless Cooler:
– Motion Activated LED light (super handy for at night):

Some of the Camping Supplies I Use:
– Portable Butane Gas Stove:
– Plastic mallet:
– Aeropress Coffee Maker (My favorite way to make coffee while camping):
– Hand Coffee Grinder:
– Get all your small kitchen supplies from the 99 cent store. They have everything! And it’s 99 cents!
– I got my pots and pans from Ikea
