There are lots of great ways to set up kitchens dedicated to cooking outdoors, but I sure would not what one of these all-in-one solutions built with cheap stuff.

I have a friend who still loves tent camping, though I haven't camped with him in a few years. He really does it in style. He pulls a small utility trailer he built, the box on it being about 6'W x 8'L x 4' high, where he as very nicely organized everything. He has a cooking station he sets up that is a camping kitchen to die for, all quality stuff. Aside from his tent, he has a shed style tarp that is open only on one side that the kitchen goes in.

Their beds are cots with down filled air mattresses, and he has heat for the tent if needed. Quite comfy.

He can completely set up camp in well under an hour. This is a camp that would put anything most trailer campers do to shame. Not something good for quick overnights, though he could just set up the tent.

Under an hour?! Give me 3 minutes while the electronics of the built in surge protector runs through the tests for Ten Forward... In an hour, I'll can work myself through about half of a six pack!

Camp kitchens

We had some compartmentalized plywood boxes for patrol kitchens when I was an adult leader in Boy scouts. They were pretty slick. We would set up the whole troop in about 30 minutes and tear down in about the same time. The last few times I went camping with them there were about four lads who were destined to become Eagle Scouts that I had started as tenderfoot scouts. They were so good that they would tell me to work with a couple of younger scouts on a merit badge that needed adult sign off while they set up my tent too.
One is a Jumbo jet pilot now and two are in the service, they just had to "fly jets".
We ran camp chef upright stoves on 20 lb. propane tanks.

I assume that the intent was to share a possible option for handling outdoor cooking equipment for use with an Escape. That means it either goes in the tow vehicle, or in or on the Escape.

Something that easily rolls in the door of the trailer and is sized to fit there well would be interesting, but it would need to be secured somehow and I would probably get tired of pulling it out at every stop (even roadside lunch and bathroom stops). Something that goes in the van would work better for us, and would be useful for some trips even without the trailer.
