I just cleaned my Maxxfan this afternoon.
I have the range hood, but haven't used it a lot.
I should.
And you should, get the range hood.

Drawing shows the 17b counter according to gbaglo's dimensions, with the sink and stove locations swapped, the stove turned vertically, and the window where the range hood would be in the original layout. About 8 more inches of counter space this way, and the windows are more spread out as well. I like this.

Cooking by the bed and bedding could get messy...

Yeah, pretty much everything's a compromise in these small trailers. There is a plus and a minus to each and every build decision we've made. We probably won't do much cooking on it, preferring to cook outside when the weather permits. But, thanks for the input. It's always welcome!

Plus one less thing to bang your head on.
Also it's easier to see what's cooking without the hood in the way.

Yeah, the list of reasons is piling up. Several have also pointed out that the Maxx Fan evacuates any cooking odors quite well.

A more accurately measured drawing this time. This one shows the stove top mounted normally, resulting in about 3" of space between them, but of course, more room behind for a spice rack, etc. Sink and stovetop swapped like before, as well as the window location changed. I think I prefer it front to back like the first drawing.

Keep in mind that you have the cupboards under the sink and stove and the furnace, plumbing and wheel well. Configuration could be impractical in terms of storage.

Yeah, I was thinking that at first, but some have done it and not reported any issues. I'll have to get more details from ETI on whether it causes storage problems.
