Dimensions needed for P/S dinette wall - 5.0

When I get my Escape 5.0 one of the first things I'll be doing is effectively replacing the passenger side U-dinette seating with an extension of the kitchen to accomodate my Breville oven. I'll do this by having a couple of portable units sitting on top of the seat deck. One would be a wide but "slim" drawer for the oven to sit on and contain accessories. The second one would be a double door cabinet likely for my Instant Pot and accessories (or maybe for a ham radio station).

I'm not going to see if the Breville would fit where the propane oven would be because at 21" wide plus air circulation space I'm pretty sure it is too wide as well as possibly too tall to fit in the standard space. Besides, I don't want it as low as that would make it.

For planning and possibly having the two sections made before camper delivery I need a couple dimensions not provided in the document at the ETI site.

A - distance between the "wall" at the end of the kitchen and the window over the seat.

B - distance from the seat base to the window.

C - for clarification purposes, the height of the seat base. The info provided in the ETI drawing says the seating is 19" high. I assume this includes the cushion but it isn't clear.

In the attached drawing I have exaggerated the height of the Breville to demonstrate further why the first 2 measurements are critical - I want the oven to block as little of the window as possible. The measurements will let me know how high that drawer unit can be.

Yup.
Think the OP should draw himself a scale drawing before building any actual cabinet.

The window is that close to the divider, not centered over the seat?

This appears to be negative. Could you elaborate?

It is a power hog and needs space on each side for ventilation. I anticipate having only about half the specified space and using something on both sides for heat protection. If nothing else, I have 2 of them. One much smaller than the 21" wide I specified but I'm doing my planning with the big one in mind. Check out the 650 (17") & the 900 (21").

That’s affirmative.
Window is 30” x 20” if you want to draw yourself a scale sketch. These # are to the frame, not the glass.

🤔 Distance from divider to back wall is about 48”. There is a pretty good radious on the back so that’s probably why window is more forward.
