2 burner vs 3 burner

Can someone post a picture of the 3 burner stove top, without oven, with the cover open please? I found a good image of the 2 burner. Want to compare the 2.

On a side note, has anyone asked about a double sink as an option?

Thanks Dave, I did find a 3 burner image on the Escape web page for the 5.0, not much difference in size other then some front to back. Suppose if you had it shifted 90 degrees it would help in the smaller trailers. The 2 looks fine for our needs.

I have three burner and I don't recall ever using more than two. 95 per cent of the time, when using the inside stove, we've used one burner.
Outside, I have two one-burner butane stoves and a BBQ.

With all those various burners you could cook for us all!

It looks like their would room for a double sink in a 21ft.

We have the three burner stove and use all three often enough that we are glad we opted for it. The two smaller burners are excellent for heating a griddle while the larger burner can heat a pot of water or cook the toast.

It all depends on how you like to cook. A lot of people like to cook outside - not us!

The one option we didn't get, given that we like indoor cooking, was the oven. We bought a lovely little convection toaster oven that is awesome. When we have our screen room set up (almost all the time) and are hooked up to power, it is the one appliance I don't mind using "outdoors" because there isn't really room for it inside if we're going to use the stove as well.

Works well for us

We are opting for a 3 burner as it will allow us to use larger pans because the distance between the large rear burner and the small front burner is greater than the distance between the two burners on the standard two burner unit.

We have a three burner stove, but would go for a two burner if we were to do it again. We have never used three burners at one time. It is mostly one, and sometimes two.

We use our BBQ and outdoor stove a lot. Unless the weather is extremely poor, I just love to sit outside while cooking, of which I do the lions share while camping. This is likely why the inside burners get less use.

But, as you can tell from reading through this site, there are many a different way of cooking for everyone. You pretty much have to define what your own style of camping is.

We opted for the three burner because we thought we would use all three. So far, because we only travel/camp in spring and summer, we have only used one burner and that was for boiling water. All our cooking takes place outside. I'm not too sure I would want the smell of cooked food in our trailer.
