Most of our cooking is inside on the 3 burner stove in our 17B. Any food with strong smells like fish we do on a barbeque. With the max fan set low and drawing in and the stove fan exhausting, we never have trouble with risidual smells.

I use one or two butane one-burner stoves outside. The tanks cost $2 ea. at Army and Navy or a pack of four for ten or eleven dollars at Home Hardware ( vs. $4.99 ea. for 1 lb. propane tanks ). In my experience, the butane stoves are much hotter and I can get a pot of water boiling in half the time of propane ( probably using less butane than I would propane ). I used to put my butane stove on top of the propane stove in my tent trailer to speed up making coffee in the morning.
I still have three burners in the trailer for emergency use ( like rain ).

I think new folks to TT's often think about small areas and smells... are thinking about their sticks 'n bricks bathrooms. But even those disgusting smells don't last HOURS.

We're new to hard body trailers, in our hybrid the big concern was not putting more moisture into the air. We got used to cooking outside when at all possible.

I don't have mine yet; but I'm intending to use the heck out of it. Standing outside, cooking on the T@b got old when it was cold, rainy, or when the mosquito invasion came by.

Okay, new to TTs? Menu planning may be paramount. No fresh fish, broccoli, cauliflower or other "stinky" foods late night DINNERS. But honestly, ENJOY every moment of your FSC trailer. You've moved beyond TENT camping!

Hey,

Might find some interesting recipes and ways for less smelly dishes here.
The Boat Galley — getting the most out of your boat kitchen . . . and more! I like the recommendations on equipment and such too.

Unless I am using my weber BBQ as an oven--or actually BBQing I use the stove inside--and many times have used all three burners...

The only time our trailer stove gets used is to boil water for coffee and tea in the morning. We do all of our cooking outside on the camp stove or BBQ.
