You may be able to find an apartment size range hood and then fashion an adaptor to fit the existing vent. If you're at all handy with sheet metal, I'll bet you could make one yourself out of aluminum or stainless and a standard extraction fan assembly.

Julie -
Target has small stainless electric fridges if your looking for just electric. Walmart also I believe and maybe Lowes.

I'm finding nothing about RV hoods at campingworld.com.

You can produce a template for a 2-dimensional surface with a story stick easier than you can with a scribed line -- and produce a level or parallel top or bottom line if you think it through. The 1950s Airstreams with up to 13 end segments were produced with flat sheet. My big project this next winter is a major and high-end rebuild of all our home kitchen cabinets. I am still thinking about an exhaust hood based on these old Airstreams. Maybe I'll look for a separate squirrel cage fan. Under hood light? If can handle the metal work it should be easy to do that up to code. I'd listen to any fan you wish to install. Current OEM Airstream hood fans are noisy -- see Pahaska's comments here and here and here. In addition -- anything in the Broan product line had better be listened to before you latch on...

Other ideas -- many local companies can custom make stainless countertops. They could probably produce a hood if you give them the specs.

Bob,
I don't know what style of range hood you're interested in, but there are a lot of great, modern designs out there. I would recommend that you pick up a copy of "Dwell" magazine from your local news stand. There are tons of adverts by various kitchen millwork companies, etc. as well as photos of real homes that might illustrate something that interests you. One caveat though, this magazine tends to be geared towards the modern, which is my taste, but may not be yours. However, it may offer you a starting point in getting familiar with who is making these hoods. Broan is not your only option. In fact, IKEA has a few stylish options. I believe they are made by Whirlpool.

Cheers!

the problem with some of the italian and other designer fans is the size... husband thinks we need to keep it smaller, smallest is 30" wide the rv ones are 20 inches about right i suppose but not too pretty. but I'll keep looking at them, the ones on lowes website are 30 in. but only 70.00 for stainless..not as fancy as the italian designs not sure what the width of my 3 burner wedgewood drop in is but with no upper cabinets planned there perhaps can do a 30" wide ?

Summit makes them 20" wide and larger.

Standard Range Hoods : Summit Appliances

Avanti makes a 24" hood.

Product Catalog - Model H2312SS - Range Hood - 24" - St Steel

Broan makes a 24" model

Product Detail

Nutone sells the fan/power module alone:

Nutone Model: PM250 - Power Module - Silver - Power Modules

I'm sure there are others available. Some of the higher end makers like Thermador and Jenn-Air, etc. may even make some narrower models.

My friend's recently acquired '51 Flying Cloud has an original range hood in it. I am thinking my winter project may be that I might "borrow" it (yes, I'll tell him) and see if a local tin shop can replicate it for me. As for internals I'll hit the used RV place and acquire one out of an SOB to rob the internals out of (fan/light/screen assembly). Alternatively they sell new ones for RV's in pretty much every RV parts shop I've been in although some of them look pretty cheaply made.

One option, probably expensive, would be to contact companies that fabricate hoods for restaurants. These are just about all one-offs. They are used to working in a variety of sizes.

Thanks for the tip on this. I am looking for one of these.

It looks like it has already ended. I looked at the listing and it was without the motor. Says he has not removed it yet, so it comes with out the fan. Not much use with out the fan. That is what usually goes bad. I guess its no surpise that it did not sell.
