Wife bought a couple of collapsible food storage bowls...I got a pair of X-Chocks. Now she's saying, "wait a minute...!" History's been made. I out shopped her!

A wax job-
At least 1/2 of it is done.
Takes me 5-6 evenings after work to get it and the truck done.
Mississippi Unit rally next Wednesday.
Maybe I'll be done by then.

Whoa! Another eclipse?!! A funky idea for the galley round sink cover. We're always looking for more counter space, but we've never used the sink cover. Doesn't stay put while towing, can't access the sink or use the faucet while in place and there isn't a convenient place to store it. My wife also doesn't like to use her knives on synthetic surfaces. I got an idea stemmed from a fellow Airstreamer on another thread that bored out a 5" hole where the existing finger hole is to allow the faucet water to drain into the sink. My wife was skeptical with my idea at first until I made a cardboard mockup. She liked the idea. This is what I came up with...

She loves having more counter space. She especially enjoys that she has a work surface that won't scratch up the counter. She's reluctant placing anything on the counter without protection. Loves that she can access the sink and use the faucet.

Put non-slip pads under the board and fits nicely up against the sink if we need full access to the sink!

We had this cover in storage from day one and feels good to re-purpose it. It's funky but it works for us!

Man is that thing gorgeous. (I'm a kitchen appliance snob). If I may ask, what was the reason for the upgrade, i.e. is there anything different about it functionally as compared to a standard Atwood Range/Oven? Also, is this a direct drop-in replacement?

Found your detailed install review on the other thread, so disregard the second part of my question! I was bummed to see it wasn't an easy drop-in replacement...you'd think they would manufacture it to the same trim specs as the Atwoods that are so common! Anyway, looks amazing.

Other than electronic ignition and superior, Aistream-worthy aesthetics, any other advantages over the Atwood? (Which looks 'builder-grade' by comparison! I'm surprised Airstream doesn't spec these as standard in a premium RV).

4 - love you teak shower floor. Where did you get it, please? I have been wanting one for months. It looks like it fit perfectly. Did you have to modify it at all?

Hi-thanks! My wife's a galley appliance snob too. Now she's lusting for a Vitifrigo for the AS. Sadly, AS installs the SMEV range oven only in the Eddie Bauers and late model Classics. According to another airforum subscriber, AS doesn't even offer it as in upgrade when ordering a unit. You're on your own. Unfortunately, there are no after market retrofit kits. There aren't any size standards when it comes to mobile appliances that I know of. SMEV is an Italian marine and mobile accessory company that's a subsidiary of Dometic. Atwood is American, recently acquired by Dometic. Metric vs standard...

We love the performance (and the esthetics) of the SMEV. The Jetflow burners definitely are much more effficent. It claims it uses about 33% less fuel with better efficiency. My wife's an awesome cook and she knows performance when she sees it...such a culinary snob! Burners ignite quickly, no "lag" time. Another nicety is the oven has a light and glass front door. Honestly we haven't used the oven yet. We can post her maiden voyage in the future.

This isn't performance but having the glass burner lid flush with the counter is a big plus both esthetically and functionality.

Here's an excerpt from where we purchased the SMEV:

KEY FEATURES: DOMETIC CU-434 RANGE/RV OVEN

Electronic (piezo) 12V ignition with safety (thermocouple) system for all 3 burners and oven, providing convenient, quick and safe ignition

Three fully-sealed burners (6700 BTU, 5900 BTU, 3700 BTU) with JetFlow technology to use 33% less gas while still providing high temperature cooking

Large 1.06 cu ft (30-liter) oven has enough space for large pans, with accurate temperature and even cooking

Multiple-layer oven door greatly reduces surface temperatures

Interior 12V oven light

Integrated flush black tempered-glass lid provides extra countertop room in the scarce space of an RV

Sleek design, modern and easy to clean

Crafted of corrosion-resistant 304L premium 18/10 (18% chromium, 10% nickel) stainless steel

Good luck and let us know how it goes for you!

Happy travels!
