Small camper w/outdoor kitchen

We now have a popup, but last summer wife saw a small (~20) camper at our campground with an outdoor kitchen and fell in love with it. I wish I had written down the model, but of course didn't. Google brings in search overload, but wanted to get opinions here on a small camper that will handle 4, has an outdoor kitchen, light, shower, not worried so much about sitting space/tv's/etc. So lets hear about what you have/seen.

One of the things I really LIKE about our Teardrop is that the kitchen smells stay outside so no matter what we cook the sleeping area smells like people not boiled cabbage or bacon. Not that there is anything wrong with bacon.

I've owned 9-10 rv's and many with ovens. We've never cooked anything inside either of them, only boiled water on occasion. That's the nice thing about awnings and portable stoves/bbq's. A big part of the camping experience is cooking outside.

Having a dedicated outside kitchen would be nice, but i've only seen them on larger more expensive units.

We had a small Coleman pop up with outside kitchen and inside, I would cook while the girls slept we were all happy and smell free. The outside had a screened room with plastic windows pretty nice set up and only 990 lbs dry, with girls stuff 9999 lbs

I think part of the deal on the oven is to meet qualifying criteria for a home loan write-off on taxes... "2nd home" and all.

Cruiser RV Fun Finder X215WSX is just one I found by typing in "RV outdoor kitchen" on Google and then clicked on images:

Most of the smaller trailers I have seen with a outdoor kitchen seem to be more of a "couples trailer" rather than a "family trailer", IE:

Keystone RV Premier Ultra Lite 22RBPR

The Microlite Car-go Lite Extreme might be a good option. At least that's where my money would probably go if I wasn't planning on slowly converting a cargo trailer to better work with my tiny budget.

Those look nice, but heavier than I thought. I am really unsure towing a larger camper, my aunt and uncle that we camped with got into a big gust of wind, lost control, and killed them both (and they had their stuff right, weight distribution, big Suburban tow vehicle, etc). I may stick with a pop up for now, it has a stove for the outside so its sorta an outdoor kitchen. The slide out kitchen was just so neat. I tried to convince the wife we need to do this conversion, but the wife said we're red neck enough. Outdoor kitchen up front, toy hauler in the back! We could call it the Mullet, business in front, party in the back . Imagine that, too red neck for someone from Hazard, KY. Like Rick James saying thats just a little too freaky.
