I grew up using a gas stove.
Just the opposite, 2 large in the front, 3 small in the back.

We have the 3 burner stove in out 2013 Escape. I do not believe that moving or rotating the stove and eliminating the ventilating stove hood is a improvement on the OE Escape design. We would not buy a TT without the ventilating stove hood. We have tried venting steam from boiling water using the vent hood and the max fan. The power vent hood is more efficent.

I failed to mention that we have found the stove cover (which has side wings) effective in controlling heat and splash.

Same thoughts as Jubal, for an enclosed space such as a TT where some cooking occurs we rely on having a ventilating hood for things such as cooking pasta, boiling water, etc.

I think it's even more than that. The cabinetry in the Escape is wood. Have you seen how much moisture the bottom of a cabinet gets hit with? Besides, spaghetti sauce pops and sauce stains. I look at the underside of the one in my sticks 'n bricks home and

If you open all the windows and the door then you would have very effective mass uncontrolled ventilation, although you would still be punishing the cabinet over the stove...and then you might as well be cooking on the ice encrusted picnic table like all the real campers I prefer the minimal controlled ventilation of a hood fan, especially in shoulder seasons.

Donna go for Alloy or Chrome wheels.

Because we switched the position of the sink and stove in our 19, Tammy said that it would not be a good idea to have a vent hood -- due to the location near the door there would be too much chance of bumping into it. In any case I had read a lot of comments from folks on the forum who said that they wished they'd not included the vent hood -- that the maxi fan was strong enough to vent the area and it makes the trailer seem more open without the hood. We have a vent hood at home and it is really hard to clean. I'll probably cook with lids on the pots inside the trailer and hope to do steaks and splattery things outside.

Yes, that was my feeling in designing/building my 19 with an opening kitchen window, an available screen door plus the MaxxFann on exhaust, a vent hood would be redundant as well as an encroachment on the living space.

That is probably a good indication that the vent hood serves a useful purpose. I would personally much prefer to clean the food gunk and grease off of the range hood than off of the walls, cabinets and ceiling.

Even though we do have the range hood, we still try to do as much cooking outside whenever conditions are suited for it. Helps to keep the smells down, the heat down, and the inside of the trailer cleaner; and after all we are often in an area where the scenery is nice and it is a pleasure to be outdoors.
