Yeah, I don't think resale is any consideration in this case. If they absolutely need a range hood and the trailer doesn't have it, the next buyer in line won't mind a bit.

We have it because we like exhausting cooking fumes and steam directly out, and because we like the way it looks. That's it.

And the other reason is that you may realize later that you needed that feature yourself, or did not know all of the uses and now need one of them.

There have been some Escapes up for many months but the primary reasons were probably lack of insulation and/or A/C.

Range Hood and stove cover cost $150. Where will you put your dishes to dry if you don't have the stove cover?
Amortized over 20 years, that's $7.50 a year, or, two lattes.
If the range hood was in the middle of the aisle, I'd be concerned about sight-lines.
And, where do the fridge magnets go? Not on the fridge.

Advice: imagine yourself camping, where you prefer to cook, what you prefer to eat, do you like spending (cooking)time outside or inside? Where are you planning on going camping and what are the temperatures/weather there?
It all depends what kind of camper you are. Once you figure Your style of camping out, it answers most of the questions of the build sheet for you.
Good luck with everything! And don't hesitate to ask! There are lots of helpful people on this forum!
And, near as I can tell, it would not be difficult to add a venting stove fan after the fact. Cut a hole in the fiberglass ( which is what I think Escape does) and wire it in using the light fixture wiring.

True. All window, vent, and hatch openings are cut out; they are not created in the moulding process.

Our 19' hood held magnets but our 21' in stainless steel does not.

Ron in BC; have one in my house, have one in my 19. Cook inside mostly. Faced with the choice of having to clean my grease filter in the range hood or strip down the Maxfan and clean it I'll take the range hood filter.

As far as deleting it so the space looks less cluttered, well my bathroom would look less cluttered if I deleted the toilet.

Ron that was a good one . Made my day ! Pat
