We have a Catalina rear kitchen now going on 5 years and we have not had any issue with the fridge, cupboards, stuff moving around, items breaking, nothing. The turn table plate in the microwave moves around but we jammed a pool noodle between the plate and the top of the microwave oven top, solved that issue. Get the floor plan you want.

We have a Cruisers Enterra triple slide with a RK. First RK in over 50 years of camping. Love it. Should have got one years ago. 2 big windows out the back and full windows on the campsite side. It has setback axles on a frame built for a rear kitchen with trail air suspensun and shocks. Pulls and rides like a dream. Nothing ever moves off the counters. Buy what you want and remember, if the sales mans lips are moving, he is probably lieing.

I have a Jayco Eagle 31 RKDS. Rear kitchen - love the layout. And never have had any issue with any drawers or cabinets popping open. No dishes broken. The fridge is on the back wall and couldn’t keep the gas burner lit - I think it was the buffeting and vacuum at the rear face of the trailer while driving. I swapped for a 12 volt compressor fridge and have not regretted the change.

Thanks for the comments, everyone. As it happens we’ve decided on a rear living floorplan for now, but won’t hesitate to get a rear kitchen in the future if that’s the one we like.
