Hi: Kountrykamper... When asked if my wife's cooking inside the trailer bothered me... I said "She doesn't cook... I do"!!! Alf

Happy trails!
Yup. You could order a 21'.

Does the range hood exhaust or does it filter air thru charcoal and recirculate? Does ETI give a credit if you omit it?

It exhausts to the exterior, not all that well. The forum is pretty much broken down to those, me included, that want to give grease etc. a place to go and those that don't like it being in the way and liking a more open look.

Hi: Richard in Georgia... Yes the range hood exhausts to the outside. You must release the tabs outside so the flap can open with the exhausted air flow. We do use it when cooking in our 5.0TA. Alf

I think the concern about an open look depends on the trailer and placement of the range hood. On my 17B, the range hood blocks my view of the bath wall, which doesn't bother me at all.
On the other hand, I rarely cook inside and find the fan in the hood to be as loud as a jet engine testing bay. So, I use the Maxxfan to exhaust steam from boiling water.
Great place for fridge magnets.

I have the range hood and am glad I have it. I don't cook greasy food, other than pan fried steaks that I seem to burn! But, I've painted the kitchen walls in my sticks 'n bricks and cleaned the hood enough to know I don't want all that gunk in Ten Forward if I can do anything to lessen it. The MaxxFan is feet away from the stove in my build and there's no window over the stove either. I'm more concerned with an overload of moisture when I winter camp. The range hood helps. Good luck with your decision

We have eliminated the range hood from our upcoming 17B. Escape does not give you a credit for it, because they replace it with a light fixture

I will not likely have Escape install a hood fan, but will definitely put one in myself later. Right now we rarely cook inside, but in the future with longer excursions I imagine we will, and I definitely don't want to put any cooking fumes or vapours through the Maxx Fan.
