Thanks for turning me onto this unit! I hadn't come across it in my research. Here's some information about it:

Stove SMEV Moonlight Three Burner w/Oven/Grill/Hob Gimballed Propane

More information available from the manufacturer here: DOMETIC MOONLIGHT THREE. The cheapest of the bunch, around $900 for the 3 burner version. Has oven light, electric ignition, and ignition protection (presumably shuts off gas if no ignition).

The European version is evidently half the price, including shipping, from the United Kingdom! Here's the link. 399 British Pounds + 20 Pounds for shipping to the US. Looks a tad different...

US Domestic Version (CU-434):



European Version (CU433, Part Number 99297299):

Pretty much the same dilemma for me. My Sovereign has a 3 burner Princess range so I took it completely apart ready for new porcelain and was planing to remake the flat steel from stainless and even get new valves etc. Ultimately it's tough finding something functional, safe and not overly hideous but I'm liking the look of the new Dometic CU-434 Stainless-Steel Range that was linked above. I'm not even going to check the Canadian MSRP just yet though...

You could always support the Canadian companies that produce ranges for sailboats (equally capable of serving in an RV) like Dickinson or Force 10.

The reason they look cheap is because they are.

I was reading the Dickinson web site and I think they acquired the SMEV stove line.

Mama's all for a good deal, but I like the sleek appearance of US model Dometic (and it's silver). I would also prefer to keep the burners covered when the stove isn't in use. It's work space on an already cozy counter top. We're also traveling with a small herd of fur kids, who don't stop shedding just because we're on vacation. (Need to talk to them about that.) Then there is still the matter of our hard-core counter top cruiser.

Referring to the One Hot Italian (Dometic CU434I0730000US) 😉 I want one 😃👍🏻 so now the question is who sells them? Preferably near LA as we live 45 miles NW of LAX.

Since I haven't found readily available, I'm thinking it's special order. Go to the item on the Dometic site and click their find a dealer button. Enter your zip code and see who pops up. If you have one anywhere in the area, try starting with Camping World. "One Hot Italian" was in their publications. Trailer Life and MotorHome are Good Sam publications. Camping World belongs to them too. Then try calling other dealers to see who gives you a better price and how soon they will have it for you.

Confirmed with the above supplier that the SMEV "Moonlight" (European equivalent of the dometic) that price is 399 pounds ($562.44 in US currency) plus 70 pounds for shipping ($98.67 in US currency) and arrives in the US in 3-5 business days. That's about half the price I could find it in the US!

Too bad CU-434 can't be obtained the same way. 'Cause Mama's waiting just a bit for her dream appliance.

Still, would hazard a guess that these 2 models have very similar mechanical features and functioning, so I'm looking forward to learning about the experiences you have with your purchase.
