We did not have the hood installed. If you cook even a little, the steam and heat take their toll on the bottom of the cupboard. The seam tape separates and the vinyl facing of the plywood. If you don't get the hood, I would see if ETI can install a piece of heat resistant metal above the burners. I'm in the process of doing a retrofit.

I use a stove top coffee percolator and about the only thing cooked on the inside stove. I was worried about exactly what Tim n Julie pointed out above with the steam from the percolator so eliminating wasn't an option. It's not intrusive and I'm hoping the wireless refrigerator thermometer will stick on it with the magnet back it has.

It will stick on the "stock black model" but not the stainless upgrade.

One thing I like about having the hood is it gives me attaching flexibility for adding a shelf for cups, or hooks for utensils, and even my own extra special lighting. The hood creates attachment points without drilling into vinyl, or walls. The vent vents pretty good, too.

Dometic CK2000 Cooker

This item was mentioned in another thread. I'm very intrigued by it. I've emailed the Dometic folks in the UK and asked if it would be available in the US, however I have yet to hear from their US folks (they said they'd forward my question to them).

Dometic CK 2000 | Dometic United Kingdom

Here's the Amazon UK link:

Dometic CK2000 Cooker Hood Extractor Fan with Carbon Filter & 2 Halogen Lights: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike

I measured and it will fit just fine under the cabinet on the 21'. I really like the fact that it doesn't stick out from the cabinet, which means one less thing for me to bang myself in to (if something is there that can be banged on, I'll find it eventually - I keep a good supply of bandaids around).

You don't get a credit from ETI for not installing a range hood or a light underneath (which is what they do if you don't get the range hood). (There is a $50 charge if you rotate the stove though.)

There is a new Dometic range hood that their support tells me will be out for approximately March 2016. This is a Dometic USA product, so should be available through their retailers. It seems like a nice product, and you would likely be able to swap it out with the one Escape installs.

The United Kingdom model just recirculates, no outside venting, but the one Jim links appears to be a venting type, very nice upgrade.

These two Dometic UK hoods fans will vent to the outside.

Part of my likes the one where the fan is externally mounted on the roof. Sure there is a roof penetration, but that can be done properly, and it will be WAY quieter during operation. I don't like that it is a single speed fan, and uses halogen bulbs though.

Yes. I didn't discover that the range vent flap was held closed by the tabs until I was going over the trailer and getting it ready for storage. Most of the cooking was outside anyway. Also forgot to have someone hold down the flush for the toilet while blowing out the lines. Loren
