I talked to Tammy about that at Bandon. She said she thought it was better to have more counter space. There's always trade offs - we personally love the extra counter space.

Good point, any idea on the size of the single?

Not just counter space to consider. Double sink and plumbing also takes up space under the counter, reducing storage.

Add us to the group who have three burners but have rarely used more than one, two at the most. On the other hand, we sometimes use a griddle inside to make bacon and pancakes, and it is nice to have two burners for that. We try to cook outside, but when it is raining or cold outside, it is nice to be able to turn on the maxi-fan and stay dry.

We don't cook fish in the trailer, but have made lots of other things and so far we haven't had a problem with odors. Of course one of the things that disappears with age is a sense of smell. :-)

Contrary to what some others have reported in other threads, we do use our microwave a lot, especially for making hot water in the morning. I can do without a lot of things, but not a good cup of tea when I wake up.

We have our new 21 at home, but haven't used it enough to pass judgement on the sink yet. We rejected the double sink idea because of the plumbing below taking up so much room along with loosing counter space, but we are still considering a larger single sink. We'll decide after living with it for a while.

There is this ancient old world secret for making hot water... you can use fire.

Just kidding of course, but even at home I have never even considered the microwave for heating water, 99% of its use is for leftovers, something we always plan for at home, but try to avoid while camping. This alone kinda speaks to the many different ways of cooking while camping.

Speaking of cooking, if there is freezing rain and flurries in San Antonio, how's the weather treating you?
We only went to the Maya once. Mexico declared an emergency in the west because of the cold and it was warmer in Vancouver, BC at times. Came home and booked a week in Dominican Republic.

The only time we used three burners during our two Escape seasons was to quickly heat the interior on a cold evening or morning (temporarily of course). I'd choose two burners and take the extra counter space.

It has been great here, highs in the mid to upper 20s, and lows in the high teens. Just a wee bit of rain yesterday. This is my 4th trip to the area, and we have always had pretty good weather, even when it has rained, it was fairly short and warm.

Jim,

I appreciate the humor! In our 17, I can't start the stove until Lindy (aka Sleeping Beauty) awakes, which is usually 30-60 minutes after I am up. But using the microwave doesn't disturb her. So I heat a cup of water, throw a tea bag in and take Murphy-the-dog for a walk. I don't blame Lindy for sleeping in. If I had to deal with me before the tea, I would sleep in too.
