SMEV Italian Ovens/ sinks/ cooktops

SMEV manufactures Italian-designed, residential-style RV cookers and sinks. It's market share exceeds 55% in Europe and 85% in Australia. Though the company just entered the US market, it already supplies important American clients such as Dutchman, Coachmen, and AIRSTREAM. The company has built its success by integrating design, high technology, and quality in unique products.

I like the SMEV stuff a lot, and I am planning on installing a sink/cooktop combo with cover in my trailer.

I'm bumping this thread since it's taken a day to deal with setting up as a vendor. Welcome to the forums AeryCorp!

I like the 2 burner stove and sink combo with the folding faucet. IIRC the sink is quite shallow but I suppose it all saves space in the cabinet below.

Thumbs up

I have seen the SMEV stuff in some Euro built small MoHo's and a trailer, very nice stuff. When I get a bit closer with my rebuild I will be ordering some. Not to dis SMEV but the US manufacturers could learn a thing or two.

Always glad to have a new source of neat stuff for our silver toys!

That folding sink - saw it in a new Shasta - it is pretty neat, but you're right, it's small and shallow. I might be tempted to consider it for a bath sink too.

Are your products still available in the USA? If they are, where can I purchase them? I do not see them on ebay anymore. Thanks for the help.

Rick,

SMEV was purchased by Dometic... their products are shown on the Dometic site. I would guess that they would be available from anyone who is selling Dometic stuff. I'd give PPL in Houston a call

We have that setup (stock) in our 22' SS and love it. The covers fold down giving you extra counter space.

I've been trying to find a supplier for these great looking products too, but with no success. I emailed SMEV yesterday and the told me to try Dometic. Dometic replied that SMEV products are not available for after market sales. Sigh!

the swedish conglomerate dometic purchased/acquired smev a while back,

which has impacted domestic availability/distribution.

the smev' stuff is still available from the UK (check eeek!bay.uk)
________

while unrelated to kitchen rv stuff,

a recent purchase from falmouth, cornwall england...

arrived in 5 days at the door from the moment of purchase.

(even with a hold in the new jersey customs/port)

that's on par (or quick'r) than many domestically purchased/shipped products.

cheers

Thanks everyone for your replies. I guess this falls under woulda-coulda-shoulda snooze-u-loose if I procrastinate. Steve, I tried PPL, but no luck. I wonder if the people that purchased these units or have them in their Airstreams (new), etc. can get replacement parts and/or replacement units thru Airstream? I'll check that.

2Air-I'm sure my wife would be glad to plan a trip to Europe to purchase a few items for the Airstream renovation!

Um, why would AeryCorp put out a statement touting SMEV if he wasn't selling SMEVs?

He has this link in his profile, but it's dead: http://www.smevusa.com

Colour me cornfuzed...

Just remember the European units will have metric-sized threaded connectors, and it will be hard to get them to fit well with US "English" measurements...

A 12" sink? Is it just me, or does that sound small to anyone else?

Perhaps someone that may have invested in some SMEV equipment would be so kind as to explain the allure; why they like it, in other words...?

I just called Dometic...Frustrating!

So, I just called Dometic directly. The telerep says they are only selling to manufacturers now, and that the company does not disclose when (or if) they are going to sell to the aftermarket.

So perhaps we should find someone else who can get a containerload of them shipped from Europe and resell them.

Meanwhile I'll call Airstream and find out what the "retail price" would be for a Smev Hob. (stovetop).

I snoozed I loozed!

What is the appeal of SMEV? Well on the tiny folding faucet sink, I can't say. I've seen it in a new Shasta and it's truly small and shallow. Good for washing a coffee cup and a dish. The Hobs are just kool looking (very CCD'ish) with sealed burners that clean easily, and the tempered glass covers that fold down more level with the counters - good for additional space. I'm personally planning to go to a 2 burner so I can have a bit more counter space.

Back in my T@B owning days, a lot of owners would order shocks for the European Al-ko frame from England.

Busy Outdoors was easy to work with and fairly priced. The contact there was Chris Cooper. Supposedly you just ordered the parts online - their system realized that it was a foreign address and the VAT was substracted from the "shopping cart." I didn't use them (I ordered them from British relatives, paying too much in the process) but enough others did that it sounded easy and reliable.

Turns out they sell SMEV too (but I don't see the little oven that they make that I wanted)....
