SS Stove vs Stock Black

We were thinking of getting the up grade 3 burner stainless steal stove on our build sheet then I start reading old threads how some people are finding that the top scratches. Also I am not really interested in having to put a cover over a cover to protect it as some have done.
So my question is...are people finding the stainless steel tops are still scratching? Do the stock black lids scratch as well?
If this has been discussed before, please post the link as I could not find a direct comparison.
Thanks

My stainless stove looked good as new when I sold my 17 cleaned up beautifully.

Might be more an issue on the smaller trailers, we have no scratches, but then we rarely need to leave the cover down as there is plenty of counter space.

The stainless matches the stock sink, you can get a 2 burner ss stove which is a little smaller, the top flips up and functions as a splatter shield. I removed the top, purchased a wooden carrying tray to use as a cover and take items outside, the stock cover could not perform this dual function.

I would add to what Jim has stated. And this depends on how the user cooks but we have never needed more than two burners at any given time over the many years we have been camping/RVing. It would be interesting to hear from those with 3 burners how often they have actually needed or used 3 burners.

Never, could have gotten away with 2. Would be nice if they were a bit farther apart.

This topic is so timely--I just came to look for comments I had seen before. I really like the bright look of the stainless. Jim, I like the cover idea, too. Do the screws in the hinge just go directly into the countertop, with nothing coming from below? I'm planning on asking for the lid not to be installed, figuring I can always put it in if i decide I want it. That way I don't have to fill the holes.

If I borrow your tray idea I could put a piece of my Formica on the bottom so when it's in place it will match the counter. If you have a picture handy, could you please post? Do you secure it in place somehow for travel or stow it elsewhere? Thanks.

As Bob has stated, the spacing of the burners on the three burner stove is a bit cramped.

No, the lid is not part of the stove, it is held in place with 4 wood screws and washers, into the countertop. I'll have to search my post on the tray, maybe part of "Prairie Schooner mods" or a separate. I'll get back in awhile.

I stand corrected, Jim. I thought it was part of the stove. Another senior moment.
