    Hi!

    I am restoring (lol!) A 1982 Viking Mini Gasser pup. It has only one bunk and I couldn't resist it when I saw it. I am having trouble finding info on it. There is a cabinet that is quite solid and has two doors on the front. It looks like it should have a swing up galley on the top but there is no evidence there was ever one there! My question is, do you think I should build one to go there? There is a place on the tongue for a battery, but no place for propane and it is not plumbed for it, either. So my galley would be a place for a sink and counter at a good height. I can do that much but the propane is beyond my skills. This is a TINY camper as the box is roughly 6x7 feet. Did I give enough info? Thanks!

    I can imagine putting in a swing up counter and using a butane stove, or a propane stove with the small bottle. Personally, I never cooked inside of my camper even though I had the ability.

    Thanks! I don't plan to actually install a stove top. But i was thinking about a sink. Beyond that is the basic question of installing a swing up cabinet at all. I will probably end up fabricating one from scratch as there doesn't appear to be any out there small enough to fit.

    Just looked a picture and thats a pretty neat pup! I've seen quite a few pivoting hinges on both McMaster Carr and on Amazon. Some pictures would be helpful to see how much room you have to work with. You could also use a slide out if there's room in the cabinet to put that.

    Ok. I only have one picture until tomorrow when it gets light. Here is a picture of the cabinet that would be the base upon which I would put the galley. It is about 37 1/2 wife and about 15 1/2 high. Immediately to the right is the edge of the box and the bed. Immediately to the left is the bench for the dinette.

    With space being at a premium, why even build one? With whatever you build, it will need to drop it down for transport. You are then loosing packable space. In our viking, with 2 double sized bunk ends, space is tight. If I could, I would have eliminated the sink & the stove top in trade for more clear counter space. We never use the sink. We cook & cleanup dishes outside.

    Thanks all, for replying.
    Tiny Camper Pro your bunkhouse is winderful!
    Viking Girl I am seriously leaning towards just making a swing up with a flat counter space and no sink. But I guess I am going to be make my it from scratch!
    Thanks for your input!
