Looking at the reversed sink/stove top. Wouldn't work for us, dirty dishes go on the extension, drying mat on the other side of the sink while the dish washer runs.

Thank you for the pictures! What a beautiful trailer!! It looks like you made many of the same choices there that we think we are ready to commit to ourselves. It is so helpful to be able to see what it would look like.... I take it you were happy with this orientation?

My rangehood is one of the first mods on my 17A I intend to do .... out it comes! I'm a bit over 6' tall and if I'm looking head down at something on my counter or on the stove, I can run the corner into my forehead.


I stopped by ETI to resolve a sink faucet issue and discovered this problem. I'm thinking about a new hood 2 - 3 inches thick (tall) and not having it protrude beyond the front edge of the overhead cabinets.... powered by a couple of computer style fans. I may have seen some low profile range hoods on RV sites but am not sure of size or cost or what sites.


Can't wait to get my hands on my trailer. Its ready but work won't let go of me until early - mid January.

I'm 6'2" and haven't had a collision with the range hood so far. It is a convenient place to park magnetic things, like a digital kitchen timer.

Has anyone found a good way to pad the range hood and cabinets so you don't hurt your head too much when you collide with them? I seem to be doing better to avoid them after a few bumps but would like to protect my head from them.

Children's stores sell rubber pads and padding that will stick on.

I haven't had a problem, but I'm only 5'8", and shrinking.
