2015 17A here: I just went out and measured: 17A is same as 17B from the right-side kitchen bulkhead (wall by bath on 17B) over. We have the 2 burner, and only use one or the other burner. Won't ever need a 3rd burner.
The stove cover is 18" long dim. x 13-3/4" short dim., so we gained about 5 inches of counter space by rotating. there's 3" clearance to the right-hand bulkhead.
If you like counter space then we recommend rotating.

Rotate

I rotated it on my 17B and I now have it rotated on my 19. I would recommend. I have a 2 burner stove and have never used more than one of the burners at a time. It gives more space between the sink and the stove which is the most valuable counter real estate for my purposes.

Oops, I think I'm confusing you with someone else! (Which is easy for me to do at times.) Well, at least I got the doggies part right.

Thanks for telling me they've been helpful. And you're welcome.

I was in my sister's motor home for the first time this last weekend and the interior was very similar to our Escape except for one thing. It had a 4 burner stove and a rather large double sink which left absolutely no counter space. Loren

Not sure if you have it on your build sheet, but the counter extension on the left side of the sink is more valuable space than what you may gain by rotating the stove.
You could do both, of course.

You might be able to save some of that side wall space by not having the stove cover installed.
We're having the stove rotated in our 19 and and not having the cover attached. Not so much for the space but because I'm planning to make a cutting board cover, and didn't want the screw holes in the counter top. Which, by the way, I never would have known about without Laura's pictures.
So thanks for that Laura!

Doing over, I too would eliminate the stove cover and adapt a cutting board for the burners ( and I'd only have two ). The cutting board can be moved to sit on the bed / dinette while using the stove, or you can take it outside for prep.
And, I'd have the counter extension that you can see on the left of the pic in post #26 ( above ).

I think I'll be sticking with the original position. I'm short and I'm kind of concerned about reaching across one burner to get to the other - not keen on catching a sleeve on fire or knocking over a pot on the closer burner.

If you get the oven is it attached to the stove like a home oven? So you have to get three burners ? Or is the stove top a separate unit and you can get the two burners and turn them if you like?

PS, Rich, congrats on upgrading! Dirk and I still remember your 19 from when we viewed it last year while we were trying to decide which trailer to get. Lots more room for you two and the kitty. Yay!
Hi Laura! Yea, the long wait begins ... October 2nd next year. And decisions about options, fabric, and countertop color. Oh, and financing too
