There really is no gain to the amount of counter space by turning the stove top sideways...just a shift in usable counter space. Canisters are usually metal or glass containers that hold flour, sugar, etc., but I think CPAHarley means it's a very good area to place salt, pepper, oils, vinegars, etc.

Exactly Karen, your useable space is the same, just in a different configuration and it is possible with the stove turned 90 degrees you lose some useable space over what you gain.

I don't agree with your definitions. To me the prime real estate is the space between the sink and the stove. To me, the area behind the stove, maybe usable for some, but not for me.

For us the extra counter space between the sink and stove wasn't as important as being able to cook in two pots or pans side by side. No reachover from a hot pot or pan to get to the other one while cooking. As for the counter space, my upcoming install of the Dickinson should help with that because it will sit flush with a cutting board insert.

On our 5 day trip after pick up we only used a 2 burner Camp Chef Ranger hooked to the quick connect option outside on a folding aluminum table. Weather permitting I think we'll be using the Camp Chef outside most of the time. Kinda wish we had gotten the 3 burner Camp Chef and a giant wok. We could really stink up the woods with some stir fry.

2 burner:

3 burner:

We store the 2 burner under the bed from driver side storage door in a stackable steralite plastic box we got at WalMart. Someone of the forum showed a picture of the box used for storage. Thanks for that.

In my 17B I have the three burner stove ( use one ) and stove cover. We don't put anything in the space between the stove and exterior wall, because then you can't open the cover, or you have to close the cover to access that space.

Cooking on a 90 degree turned stove is no different than cooking with all the burners going on your stove in your sticks 'n bricks. You don't reach over, you reach from the side. I use the space against the wall to flip up my wood stove cover. It protects the vinyl from splatters and heat.

Ron, I agree in the 19 where the counter space is limited, but the person who mentioned turning the stove 90 degrees was getting a 21' Escape where counter space is plentiful, thus the response.

Yesterday, I measured the two burner stainless steel stove in Ten Forward.

18-1/2" x 13"


by turning to portrait, I gained 5-1/2" of usable counter space. It may not seem like much, but with a larger sink I wanted to get back what I had lost. Even if I got the standard sink, I believe I would have done the same. I don't think there's any such thing as too much counter space in these trailers. I have ZERO regrets that I made this decision. YMMV
