Half size range hood? ??

The stock range hood has gotten the most use in Lightning as a head bonger (ouch!)

Has anyone come across a half depth (~6") hood with fan? Maybe the marine guys?


Tempted to delete on next build regardless, whenever that is. Just asking for now.

I plan on not having one in my build, but installing one later. No way would I go without, should we actually cook inside.

Lots of nicer hoods available outside of North America.

This one forum Australia looks good, and they will ship.

Dometic has a couple solutions too.

I like the idea of the fan on the roof, as that would be WAY quieter.

On the Casita forums you will find many posts where people have either removed the range hood completely and added various vents, computer fans etc or some people have cut down the vent hood to a more compact size and reinstalled. I am presuming the vent hoods would be somewhat similar and it may give you some ideas.

We did without. Don't miss it. Light cooking inside, the smelly/greasy stuff cooks outside.

Easy enough to add later, if wanted. I bet if there were some more readily available that were sleeker, and not as bulky, they would be a bit sell. The biggest thing we use it for, is to remove moisture, and avoid condensation issues. Nice to draw it off straight above the stove.

The whistle on my tea kettle doesn't work well. I rely on the smoke detector to tell me the water is boiling.

Well, I like the looks of these! I really like how they don't stick out so one's head won't be banging into the edge all the time. I see that I can get it from Amazon UK! Hum, something to think about.

These are the measurements: 28 x 40 x 5.6 cm - would they fit under the cabinet on the 21 footer? Thanks

Thanks Bruce and Jim, (from the other thread). I really, really like that.

We consider the stove vent and the oven two of the most important items on our trailer.
We cook, we cook a lot. We do the majority of our cooking on a coleman stove and weber grill outside, weather and season permitting. But when the weather is bad or pulling over for a hot lunch on a long travel day they are sure nice to have. Scott
