Just wait to you get to the point that you want the wheels on the trailer to MATCH the tug.. and then you find out they have to be built (zero offset). Been there, done that... next time I hope to win the lottery first. White works for me (now).

I also believe by reversing the sink and stove, putting the stove by the door and rotating the 2 burner stove 90 degrees you may eek out some more counter space. In addition, with the stove closer to the overhead fan and door you will have better ventilation as well as eliminate the need for the stove hood option.

The stove takes up the same amount of counter space regardless of orientation. All you do is lose space behind it that gets used for utensils and the such, and gain a little to the sides it when turning is. Like a couple others have said, not sure I would be comfortable with it installed with the wrong orientation either.

What are the dimensions of the OEM 2 burner stove?

The table becomes counter space if you are prepping and cooking inside.

Still loving our Dometic/SMEV Combo flush mount stove/sink.

Both Casitas and Scamps have their stoves turned sideways in some models, most efficient use of limited space.

Does anyone have a photo of this turned stove. It just seems odd to me, and maybe seeing would change my mind.

Nothing wrong with being in the minority, however... in your sticks 'n bricks home don't you have a stove that essentially has a bigger burner in the back of the smaller front burner? I do, in fact I have two of them since it's a four burner stove. I understand the safety issue. I was taught along time ago, to NOT wear droppy long sleeves while cooking. I grew up using a gas stove.
