Both very nice looking, Jim Bennett. Either hood should end the debate about whether or not to get a hood.

Don't hold your breath.

Yeah, either would be a very classy update.

We added a toggle switch to the smoke detector and only turn it at night.
There are available LED bulbs which are much brighter.

Oh geez, I find these threads that go off track, well, exhausting to follow.

I'm losing faith that Dometic will actually release this unit. A Dometic rep told me today to call a dealer when I know the dealer will only be calling Dometic. That's what Camping World did when I called a few months ago. Strangely, this exact unit appears to already be available overseas and marketed by a company called Sphere, model TCR-001. When I study the install closer it appears it should be recessed (note the unfinished side panel in your previous post). Does any know why these nicer hoods are not more readily available in the U.S. and Canada?

Jim, I'm now leaning towards the Australian hood by Camec, but the website doesn't seem to accommodate US shipping. Did you confirm with someone from the company that they will definitely ship worldwide?

After my first inquiry last year, Dometic was great responding, saying it should be ready for shipping by spring, and to watch for it from dealers. I got back to them a month or so ago inquiring as to a revised ETA, and heard nothing. I called a local dealership who checked with them, and could find nothing more than I did, that there was no item on the books for this range hood, so I suspect the wait could be some time yet, for sure.

Good find on that other hood. No doubt it is the same one. I had considered a recessed mount, but I think it would be fine surface mounted too. Worst case scenario would be a stainless steel side would be needed on one side, with the other against a gable anyway.

I know in the past I had a quote for shipping form Camec, but can't seem to be able to get one. I think I will fire them an email. They did respond with a few requests before.
