Additional countertop - need ideas

We just completed our first trip in our 2005 25í Classic and all went well! Our last rig was a 32í Excella so when it came to cooking I was missing some of my kitchen space. We have the one fold-up countertop by the door but Iím looking for creative solutions others may have used... have you installed a flip up or pull out countertop anywhere else in your 25í? Thanks for the help!

If you don’t have something that covers your burners, that is a good way to add a few feet of counter space.

I have a glass cover with legs, that looks nice and helps a great deal.

Wash the veggies and then sit down at the dinette to do your prep. Works for other food items as well. Covers for sink are standard to get more space. A hole allows scraps to be dumped out of the way or prep silverware to be moved to sink for later washing. Generally, some process development can reduce the amount of space required to make meals. One pan can do duty for cooking multiple items. The use of the microwave can give you parallel cooking/heating options. Salads with cold meats make for healthy meals. It's not always about how much you have, but rather how you use it.

Travel safe. Hope to see your smile down the road. Pat

Someone on here had fitted a thin cutting board to fit within and on top of the silverware drawer. They could pull it over the drawer when needed or push it back in to access the silverware.

Counter Top

We had an additional fold-up countertop installed by the side of the frig. Moved the coffee pot to it and other small items. It worked out quite well.

If you need more landing space for hot pots and pan, then maybe a large wood cutting board or glass counter saver is what you need. Or a large wood cutting board (18x24) that can also go over the sink.

If you need more space to do dishes, then maybe a better dish pan. Maybe a larger dish rack or larger drying mat

If you keep any appliances on the counter then maybe you need another place for these to free up counter space.

For me I have found a John Boos 18x24 wood cutting board to be immensely versatile for these tasks. It can take hot pans, you can chop on it, it can go outside if we are grilling. It can straddle the round sink. I put it on the floor of the closet when we are traveling.

Here what a couple of us 23D guys have done. Not sure if this would work for your layout.
