See how the DSB can be pulled out about 2/3’s of the way, without using the legs. It counter balances against the bedbase.
If you need to pull it right out, simply drop down the legs.
There is a small ‘paka’ now with most storage boxes, especially the ones with higher sides. The DSB is about 430 high. If the trailer is say 500, like shown, then the paka can be screwed on. This does two things. One, if put in the right place, it can stop the DSB from coming right out. You can just make out in the photo how it is hitting the angle iron, steel rhs that most trailers have to support the bedbase. Two, it helps to counterbalance the DSB when you pull it out but don’t use the legs. Without this the DSB would fall down a lot further before the back of the storage box makes contact with the bedbase. See the next photo up, it only here drops a little bit. If you have a trailer say like a cavalier, it only has an opening of around 430 anyway, so you wouldn’t need it for this reason.
You can see here the outlet for water, see FAQ’s for more info on that. See how the skids work. This is looking at the bottom of the kitchen on the right. The legs tuck up under the plastic skids. The bottom of the skids is what the kitchen/storage boxes sit on. They are the ‘runners’ and are fitted to the kitchen/storage box. So there is only a very small surface the they are running on, hence they slide so easily. You can also see, there is a timber paka, painted black, that sits between the DSB and the kitchen. This is fixed to the bottom of the trailer, and is used only on the DPOR kitchens, because these kitchens have the steel legs sitting on the front when folded up.
