Do you love life in the open air, but don't want to do without the convenience of a kitchen? The Sidekit from Camptools enables a completely new world of camping without your vehicle having to be permanently converted into a heavy camper. This space saver is a real lightweight that leaves nothing to be desired in terms of functionality. It makes your life in the car more comfortable and adapts to your individual wishes.
Can be installed behind the passenger seat or on the tailgate of the bus, this compact solution has a lot of functionality in a small space.
In vans with floor rails (VW Multivan, Mercedes Vito, Citroen Spacetourer, etc.) the SIDEKIT can usually be mounted directly and without a rail adapter. We offer suitable adapters for mounting the SIDEKIT in common vehicles with point fixings in the cargo space.
We supply suitable adapters for vehicles without floor rails, where the seats / benches are mounted in fixed positions. We already have adapters for Ford Tourneo Custom, VW T4 and others.
For vehicles without any seat attachment points in the hold (vans, vehicles with truck approval, etc.), we manufacture a base plate element on which the sidekit is mounted. This element is then attached to the load belt loops on the vehicle floor.
If you want to know which solution we provide for your vehicle, send us pictures of the loading space and the name of the vehicle with the year of manufacture to: email@example.com
We will get back to you shortly.
In the “Documents” area you will find the base of the SIDEKIT as a 1: 1 sheet of paper in PDF format. You can print it out and put it in your car to check whether the Sidekit already has the appropriate mounting holes for your vehicle.

Thanks to the heavy-duty and lockable (Camptools pat.-pend.) Pull-out mechanism in the kitchen, you can cook in the open air or protected from rain and wind in the bus. A foldable additional table allows you to work in a comfortable area. The spacious sink (internal dimensions LxWxH 265 mm, 219 mm, 147 mm) is easy to wash up. The shower hose, which can be extended up to 2 meters, enables showering, cleaning the surfboard or washing the dog. A fresh water tank that can be filled from the outside and an easy-to-use waste water system are integrated and enable the waste water to be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.
The innovative gas control unit for separate and stepless control of two flames with just one cartridge offers the possibility of cooking on our two-burner gas stove in sun, wind or rain. The system is operationally safe thanks to a gas connection that is disconnected while driving.
All gas cartridges of the EN417 standard with screw thread (thread size 7/16 “-UNEF) fit the cartridge connection of the Sidekit. These gas cartridges are the safest cartridges on the market, and are very popular at home and abroad. These cartridges are available with different filling quantities. All sizes can be used for the SIDEKIT.
The Sidekit enables cooking outside and inside the Vehicle!
When the folding table is not in use, the gas supply connection moves back into the kitchen. The gas cartridge can then be connected below the hob.
The folding table cannot be used when the bus door is closed.
The child-safe USB connections in the kitchen offer the option of charging equipment at two outlets or optionally operating a lamp to illuminate the hob.
For those who love tidiness, the kitchen offers intelligently usable storage space. A complete crockery set for four people can be found in the base of the pull-out. Our optionally available cups, plates, bowls, cutlery sets, kettles and a frying pan up to 25 cm in size can easily be stowed here. A lot of supplies or equipment can also be stowed in the two upper storage spaces.
The body of the SIDEKIT consists of HPL-coated birch multiplex plywood.
All built-in components are durable and of high quality. The gas cooker and the sink are Camptools' own developments and made of stainless steel. The gas cookers are storm-proof and do not require any additional wind protection.
Technical data of the SIDEKIT:
Dimensions 83 x 35 x 52 cm (LxWxH)
Weight: approx. 26 kg
Cool box including attachment
The SoCool35 / 45 compressor cooler from Camptools with a volume of 35/45 liters has a size of 690x345x382mm / 690x345x462mm (LXWxH). It is just as wide as its little sister and can therefore be ideally installed next to the SIDEKIT kitchen. It is equipped with a battery monitoring system so that the vehicle battery cannot be emptied below a critical charge level. The power consumption is only 45 watts, with a cooling capacity of up to -20 degrees. It is suitable for direct connection to 12 and 24 volts ignet, and is supplied by us including a power supply unit for connection to 220 volts.
The SoCool35 / 45 can be controlled and monitored completely via Bluetooth using a free app.
The appropriate adapter * can be installed in all vehicles that have floor rails within a few minutes. Whether next to our Sidekit behind the driver's seat, lengthways or across the back in the rear.
The SoCool cool box adapter offers maximum flexibility during installation and a first-class and secure fit of the cool box in the vehicle.
The cool box is positively positioned with its feet in the precisely CNC-milled adapter, and then secured with our high-strength Camptools tensioning straps. Conversely, the straps can be loosened so that the cool box can be carried by its handles.
We manufacture the bracket from HPL-coated birch plywood. As a matter of principle, we do not use CPL-coated poplar plywood because it is too soft and not strong enough.
* Please select the mounting set for the cool box adapter that matches the model.
