Dickinson Drop-In Cooktop Installs

NWtraveler and I have singed our hair and eyebrows with our Suburban cooktops. I won't fix nor replace that cooktop! We would like the Dickinson drop-in stovetop. Terry loves to cook and she deserves a stove to match her cooking!

Aside from rbryan4, who has installed a Dickinson stove in their camper?

What year/model camper?

What problems did you encounter?

Thanks,

Perry

Perry, I’ll post some links starting with these:

https://www.escapeforum.org/forums/f...top-19531.html

https://www.escapeforum.org/forums/f...ons-20525.html

https://www.escapeforum.org/forums/f...top-10176.html

Honestly there are several more discussions on Dickinson’s on the forum, but I don’t have time for a search right now. It is doable with slight to major cabinet work depending on your current cabinet.

Yes, well worth the price and effort. With the large diameter burners, there is better heat spread across the pan, way better heat and simmer, no burnt centre.

Perry, with the help of Rubicon I figured that I could install a Dickinson in my 2019 19 ft but I would have to add some aluminum angle trim because the the hole from the suburban is slightly bigger then the Dickenson. Also I haven't been able find a Dickenson stove top to do it.
