We like the layout. Think cpaharley2008 is the brainchild behind that change.
Ruth, got the cutting board from bed bath and beyond.
Jmac, I make cappuccino with a1000watt inverter and can 2 days from the 2-6 volt batteries, the machine is 800 watts. That's in the summer with little other usage. Had to run the furnace thru the night last weekend and only got a day and no solar gain from my panel. Life can be tough!

Not sure reverse is correct, because I'm not sure what stock is anymore, it seems now that normal is the way you order it. I put my stove near the door to keep smells and splatters away from the bed. It is also closer to the door and overhead fan for ventilation, thus I eliminated the vent hood. I had the 3 burner ss stove but in hindsight the 2 burner turned sideways would have been adequate, put the small burner towards the front since it is used the most.

Thanks for the pictures Dave! I like the way that looks, and I have never been big on the range hood.
Guess that is another thing to put on the build sheet!

It was the standard one he was putting into the Trilliums he was building for a short while at the time I ordered. I had been looking at a couple others, but they were from out of the country and did not have CSA approval, so he could not install them. We really like this unit. Closed it is just about flush with the counter, and you can have either the stove or sink side open or closed. The sink is small, which at first we balked at, but in hind sight is a really good thing as we are boondocking most of the time, and like to save on our resources. We save on hot water, and holding tank capacity, both of which a smaller sink helps with.

Not sure, but I bet Reace could get one still. If not, they are readily available.

Hi ,

For those of you who have put the stove by the door, is the folding countertop extension by the door still useful? I'm wondering if heat/steam/ proximity/etc. from the stovetop makes the countertop extension less practical? thanks. j

Actually I removed my shield, freed up some counter space.

It definitely is. My wife makes use of it all the time. It is a good place to set something that needs to go outside.

We had that counter extension in our airstream and I found it to be indispensible -- I could put things on it from the steps without having to come into the trailer -- made clearing up a lot easier as well as passing things out.
