But would like the stove top cover.

Also,'I agree about the storage. When packed it's stuffed. Wouldn't help to have the space collapse.
The SMEV two-burner stove in my 2012 has built-in hinges for a glass cover. Yours probably doesn't, so a cover from an existing model wouldn't work as there's no way to fasten it.

One possible fix in your case, get a bamboo cutting board that's large enough to go over the whole cooktop with a few inches to spare all around, and then use Velcro around the edges to stick it down. Loops on the board and hooks on the countertop— that way when you detach the cutting board the board isn't resting on the hooks, and it's more comfortable to use as a lap desk or serving tray when necessary. The Velcro around the cooktop will make cleanup slightly more difficult, but having a cutting board that you can stick down increases your countertop space even better than the glass top we have.

Now that I've suggested that, I may do something similar with mine, so the cutting board sticks down over the hinged cover while in transit. Seems better than taking up cabinet space for my cutting board. Yeah… I like that idea.

Amazon.com: Instant Counter Glass Burner Cover Black Marble (look) Cutting Board: Flat Top Stove Cover: Kitchen & Dining


We bought one of these our first year with the Interstate (now 7), and it has been perfect.

Adds a bit of extra counter space and is more visually appealing than naked burners.

It is heavy enough, and with the rubber feet, that it stays in place while driving. Maybe not the safest thing to do, but we always have , and it has never come off.

The one we have is exactly like this one, and goes well with our interior, although they come in other colors.

Oooo, I like that!

Doesn't look like it has feet, tho. I like the wood on yours, but adding something to keep it from slipping might be a task. Or, you could take it off while driving.

I have found the rug gripper tape to work pretty well for lots of things, and that might work for this type of thing. I carry it all the time.

One side is very sticky, to adhere to the floor, the other side less so, to stick to the rug.

Mainstays Rug Gripper Tape, Natural: Other Home : Walmart.com

Could probably cut a narrow strip and adhere to each edge. I'll bet it would work.

I originally thought of using Velcro, but on second throught I might go with Command Adhesive rug anchors. Less likely to trap grease than the Velcro loops…

Given the poor state of Louisiana roads, I'm less concerned about the cutting board slipping, and more concerned about it bouncing. So something that sticks it down would be best for me.

Agreed.

They will still get a bit grungy, but you can replace them when they become too unsanitary.

The nice thing about something that sticks to the burner cover, or whatever, is that it comes off when the burner cover does, and there is nothing left on the cook surface to gather dirt.

I have a cherry cutting board, that I use solely for a work surface, that a nice Amish woodworker measured out and made for me, that I keep on the counter all the time.

With that, I have the rug gripper tape on the counter, itself, which keeps the cutting board in place. I like to be able to flip the board over, to use both sides.

I'd worry a little bit about the cutting board becoming a projectile in an accident. Ouch.

Thre are so many other things that could become projectiles in an accident (think the cabinet doors would stay closed? I don't) that one more won't matter much.

To all who answered and gave me amazon links; many thanks! I like the bamboo and will buy one. Helps to know it fits over the RV unit. I actually have the same sort of thing in my home kitchen. It covers a small built in grill beside my induction cooktop making the grill covered by the board a nice workspace and when the grill is in place the board slides over the cooktop. I has this one made and figures is have to do the same for the RV. I Hope I can lean it against the back window when I use the burners. My galley is in the back and may be a bit tighter than those in the front. I will probably put Velcro on the back edges only to hold it on while traveling. I agree there are so many possible projectiles, I can't worry about them all. Thanks again!

I took a file and sanding block and did a small bevel on the edges and corners of the cabinet doors. Not so sharp now and haven't needed a bandaid for a while.

Flipped the wardrobe door over so it opens from the front instead of from the rear. Much more accessable now.

Nice work:

I took a black sharpie to seam edges of our cabinets since it is onyx color to hide the exposed joints.

Hope someone from Jackson Center follows the AirForums and reads this. My poor bald head has a couple of permanent dents and scars from pumping into sharp corners of the overhead cabinet doors that protrude into the aisle when open.

I haven't bothered to sand down the corners and edges, though; I learned by Pavlovian negative reinforcement to never leave an overhead cabinet door open when it is not in my direct line-of-sight— always open the door while you're looking at it, and close it again before looking away. But it was a VERY painful and bloody lesson to learn!
