Sink and stove covers for new 228

Hi all! We just had our first trip in our brand new 2014 228 and it was a big success!! We have very little counter space however, and I am looking to purchase sink and stove covers but not sure where to start. I see that camping world has universal stove covers-- are these any good? Do they make a 228 specific sink cover?

Also, one of my little guys took a tumble out of the top bunk(ouch!) so I'm curious if anyone has added a safety rail?

Thanks!!

Hello RVmommy, we have a 228 as well. We bought the oak stove topper. I have had the fold up metal ones and I much prefer the oak one. It looks great and adds the counter space you need in the 228. For the top bunk we just use the slide under the mattress bed rails that you can buy for kids beds, slide it down so there is just enough of an opening for our daughter to get thru climbing up and down. I just put a couple screws thru the base into the bed frame to keep it in place. Works well, no falls in 2 years........touch wood! I will try and take some pics and post them.

Here are some pics. Also I checked I didn't screw the bed rail in it is just under the mattress. Works Great!
Oh and we leave the oak topper on when travelling it has rubber slotted feet that line up with the grill and it does not go anywhere when travelling.

X2 on the oak stove topper. It has that non-slip stuff on the back so it really stays put. We leave ours one when traveling and it barely moves after 5 hours of bouncing around. Our sinks came with the covers already. No bunks in our place...just the two of us. Enjoy your new rig and welcome to JOF.

Thanks jayco 228! The pictures are a big help. I was hoping one of those bed rails would work--much easier than trying to build something!

Havnfun and jayco-does that oak topper double as a cutting board?

You could use it as a cutting board I suppose. We don't it is just as a cutting board. Just as easy to use a plastic one that can be washed better I think.

Jayco gets their sinks from a company called Duoform.

http://www.duoformplastics.com/shop/..._Products.html

You will need your serial # on the back underside of your sink tub. I crawled under the sink and used my cell phone to snap a picture of the serial #.

Call Duoform with the serial # and they will give you a price for the covers. On our 26rls the sink covers were $25 for both sides and $9 shipping and they matched our sink and fit perfect. It was still cheaper than purchasing a plastic one from camping world. Hope this helps.

Yep, it is a cutting board and we treated it with vegetable oil before we put it on the stove. Now the DW doesn't want to cut on it and stratch it because it "looks so pretty." Go figure, but you can bet your bippy that I will not be cutting anything on it! If the DW is happy, camping is fun.

RVMommy & Havnfun,

You really shouldn't use vegetable oil or olive oil on your wood cutting board. After a very short time (especially in a hot trailer) they will turn rancid. And definitely don't use linseed oil - it's poisonous! I'd suggest washing it with dish soap to clean it, rinse it very well, then let it air dry for at least 24 hours. Pick up a bottle of "food grade mineral oil" at any drug store (stocked near the stomach remedies), and rub it into the wood. That will help protect it from staining, keep it looking new, will not turn rancid, and it's only a couple bucks. Wash it with dish soap, rinse it, and let it air dry after each use. You'll probably want to re-treat it every couple of months.

Of course, if you're not going to cut on it, you could put a couple of coats of clear polyurethane on it; or even stain it to match your cabinets, then polyurethane it.

Just a tip from an old kitchen designer . . .
