Some of the state parks here in TX are pretty strict about it too. We had a Shiner Bock box that we were keeping firewood in, and the park ranger asked us to stow the box because "public display" wasn't allowed. While he was talking to us, I was standing in front of my bottle of Seagrams VO so he couldn't see it
Anyway, to the OP: I wasn't at all interested in an outdoor kitchen when we were shopping for our TT. I looked at it as redundant. Since we went from tenting straight to a 33 ft TT, we already have everything we need to make our own outdoor kitchen if we so choose. I have propane grill, large propane burner (think turkey fryer), small propane tabletop burner, propane lantern, and Little Red Campfire propane camp fire. I carry a 20lb tank for the Little Red Campfire, so my plan is to buy a propane tower to put on that tank, then I can run all my propane appliances wherever I want with the lantern perched on top for light, and I'm not tied to the TT, so I can have my "kitchen" wherever I want.
All that being said, it would be nice not to have to get up from my seat at the campfire if I want another adult beverage. But if it ever becomes a problem, I have a ton of cooler options to choose from.
