Thanks for the links, everyone.

It's interesting that the Dometic CK 500 newly offered in North America is not the same model as anything offered by the Dometic UK site. I don't know what it costs, but I'm sure it's expensive, and I hope it isn't the 200+ UK Pounds (C$400+, US$300+) of the CK 400 from amazon.co.uk

The CK 500 is larger in both horizontal dimensions than the CK 400:
20.86 x 11.96 x 2.36 in (530 x 304 x 60 mm)
versus 400 x 280 x 56 mm for the CK 400.

This comment, and there have been other similar ones, leaves me shaking my head and, no, I don't bang it on the range hood. I've actually stood in front of it, put my hand on the back wall, moved my head around and never come close to hitting my head on it.

Well, different strokes for different folks I guess.

We get a little more deliberative in the winter. Talking about camping is almost as good as the real thing.

Not all of us have a pterodactyl sized wing span.

To clarify, because the comment about people banging their heads on the range fan has come up before.

Neither myself nor my wife, who are different heights, have ever banged our heads on the range hood. When I read the first of many comments made about banging one's head on the range hood and never having come close to doing that myself I thought "It must be when they're reaching for something at the back of the stove." So that's why I tried reaching across the stove to the side wall and seeing if my head hit the range hood. Nope, not even close. So I really don't think it's a good reason not to get one.

Just to repeat, children's stores and departments sell various kinds of pads for that. There are several places in the trailers where that might be a problem. Escape did round the corners on the newer ones so that is a big improvement.

I am 6'-0" (though don't think this is really a factor) and have never hit my head either. Plus, our cooktop and range hood were on the left (door) side of the galley, and it was more prominent there.

I think for most it is more about the visual of it.

That's it. I like the looks of it and having brighter light would be nice. Having a stove vent is a must for us. Scott
