We did not get the hood, left the stove in the original position and like it that way. We went with the 2 burner stove and have plenty of room behind the stove to store paper towels, coffee cups and glasses and a bottle of wine or 2. We like being able to store stuff behind the stove and out of the way.

Stove vents with the max fan just fine.

I like having the stove be closer to the door so that i can easily put hot pots on the fold down counter and pass them outside.. I can also understand some of the advantages of going with the sink next to the door. The bottom line for me was that I didn't want to be standing next to the bed and cooking and I wanted to have flat surfaces on either side of the stove. I don't worry about accidentally knocking a pot because I can always put up the fold down counter.

In our 19, or stove and sink were reversed. It was fine.

After we had the trailer for a while I noticed that when the stove is by the door and the fold down counter is up, there is more room around the stove than there would be if it were by the bed. That allows for a little more flexibility with pot placement and long handles.

Guess it depends on how much you plan on cooking inside. We don't unless the weather is bad.

Thank you all for your input. It sounds like either position has its advantages and disadvantages and that we just need to make a choice.

Happy trails!

Yup. You could order a 21'.

Does the range hood exhaust or does it filter air thru charcoal and recirculate? Does ETI give a credit if you omit it?

It exhausts to the exterior, not all that well. The forum is pretty much broken down to those, me included, that want to give grease etc. a place to go and those that don't like it being in the way and liking a more open look.

Hi: Richard in Georgia... Yes the range hood exhausts to the outside. You must release the tabs outside so the flap can open with the exhausted air flow. We do use it when cooking in our 5.0TA. Alf

I think the concern about an open look depends on the trailer and placement of the range hood. On my 17B, the range hood blocks my view of the bath wall, which doesn't bother me at all.
On the other hand, I rarely cook inside and find the fan in the hood to be as loud as a jet engine testing bay. So, I use the Maxxfan to exhaust steam from boiling water.
Great place for fridge magnets.

I have the range hood and am glad I have it. I don't cook greasy food, other than pan fried steaks that I seem to burn! But, I've painted the kitchen walls in my sticks 'n bricks and cleaned the hood enough to know I don't want all that gunk in Ten Forward if I can do anything to lessen it. The MaxxFan is feet away from the stove in my build and there's no window over the stove either. I'm more concerned with an overload of moisture when I winter camp. The range hood helps. Good luck with your decision

We have eliminated the range hood from our upcoming 17B. Escape does not give you a credit for it, because they replace it with a light fixture

I will not likely have Escape install a hood fan, but will definitely put one in myself later. Right now we rarely cook inside, but in the future with longer excursions I imagine we will, and I definitely don't want to put any cooking fumes or vapours through the Maxx Fan.
