Escape forced to change stove

I just got this message because we had ordered the 3 burn SS stove.

“Escape Trailer Industries has been advised by their supplier effective immediately the 2 and 3 burner stainless steel cooktop we currently install in the Escape travel Trailer has been discontinued. Unfortunately, with this sudden change in inventory supply we are also unable to order any more of the standard 2 burner Atwood black cooktops or the optional 3 burner black cooktops.
Effective April 1, 2018 Escape Trailer Industries will be installing a stainless steel 2- burner cooktop (Suburban SDS2 – RV) as their standard cooktop.”

New Stock Stove Pics

Wow...this is a great stock stove for Escape to adopt. It is a flush mount with lid...our dream stove...we are simple campers. They could have picked the cheaper black or SS no lid above counter model but they didn’t. For the extra that Escape is paying for this stove, I think it is really going to show well that Escape is putting forth the effort to deliver a good looking quality product.

That is very nice indeed, and a good choice by Escape. With the lid down, you'll wind up with more counter space. Looks like there's a piezo switch as well, so no more lighters or matches. Visually, a real step up for the galley.

It looks good but not as good as yours. A really classy stove you put in.

That will be a big improvement for Escape though to have one flush especially on 19's.

Ah, don't you just have to check and see if it's time for more propane?

I have a 21 on order with the 2 burner stainless option, 3/16 completion date. Wonder if I can get one of these instead...

I can tell I'm in the minority, I don't like these stoves. The burners sit lower than the edge and need to for the lid to close. IF you use a large pot, it wouldn't be centered over the burner and depending on the size, it can be waaay off center. Glass doesn't really give you more counter space... just visually, I'd rather have a cutting board. YMMV

I have stainless ordered for my 17 and was told the location of the heater precluded a flat top installation. Wonder if they'll have to make a modification for that.
