2016 Eagle HT 29.5 BHDS - Outside kitchen height

Wondering what I did wrong. I auto leveled the fifth wheel, but it seems it levels high. When I open the outside kitchen it is almost to high to use. What did I do wrong when leveling?

Probably nothing, the outside kitchen on the 29.5 is just really high off the ground. Most sites it ends up near useless for my wife (she's 5'1").

I now look for sites where I have to have the nose relatively high up to level out, which results in the back end & kitchen being lower to the ground.

We bought a traveling 3x3 (feet) and 12" high platform that raised us up to the kitchen level. The legs pop out for storage. Something you can ponder as well.

We got ours on Ebay. It's actually a Dunnage rack, and correction on the size: 24" x 36"! We chose the grated platform, instead of a solid one. This way dirt can fall off our shoes to the ground with no problem. The legs are removable, so we can take it apart to store in our rig.

Attached is the pic of the one we have, and the link below is an example of a solid surface one. You can search Ebay for the grated surface as well.
