I am planning to replace the counter top in our 71 23' Safari. Are there any tricks to removing the Magic Chef stove?

If it is like my 73 Argosy there are 4 screws that hold it to the counter. One fitting @ the gas supply. Slides right on out...........

Talking Just did this

Dbraw----What's awesome about replacing the stove is that airstream hasn't changed the dimensions.

We came across a deal on a brand new 2005 stove and it literally slipped into the spot where the original magic chef fit. No more pilot lights and the new stove has the brushed aluminum/stainless steel look to it. All for $200!!

Yep....it was four screws and the gas pipe. You may want to replace/repair your countertop while you have it out. Good luck!!

Stove Replacement

Thanks for the advice. I took it out this morning. Lot simpler than I anticipated. Took out the counter top also and now am building a new one with a new faucet. It is interesting that Airstream used a foam core plywood way back in the early seventies. Anything to save weight. Always something to fix or replace on an old Airstrea.

Mitch, what brand /model of stove did you install. Thats cheaper and better than rebuilding my 64 Magic Chef.
