stovetop cover

I just purchased a WhiteHawk 21FBS with the 3 burner stove. I definitely need a cover to be able to increase counter space. I looked at Camping World today at a couple of options with the Camco Universal metal cover being one of them. Any of you have any advice on getting a cover?

Lots of trailer owners make their own or place cutting boards on the stove. Use the 'Search' function for the forum. You're likely to find one of their solutions will work for you.

I use the above mentioned cutting board method. I went down to Home Depot and in the area where they sell the felt pads you put on chair legs and what not, you can get white rubber feet. I took the grate off my stovetop, lined it up where I liked it on the bottom of my cutting board and strategically screwed four feet into the board so that when I place the board on the stovetop and tap it down gently, the four rubber feet create just a little tension. The board has never moved when I didn't want it to and works beautifully.

Added benefit: I picked up the board at a Tuesday Morning on clearance, so I've got maybe 10 bucks in it. Way cheaper and way better than the stuff they sell for 10x the price!

We ordered the Atwood cover from Camping World. Easy to install.

If your handy... make one! Heres ours the PO made back when the TT was new. The rubber feet really keep in place while traveling. I'm prob going to make a new one since its starting sag a little due to years of humidity etc.

I bought the black metal one from CW. Works and looks great. The finish can be scratched, so we are careful with it. Great addition, I have pics in the MODS section.

I made a cutting board to go over the top of my stove. I never use the stove. Nearly doubled my counter space.

I wanted a bigger board, but DW liked this one (it's bamboo). The rubber feet are EASY to install, and if you use the method I described above, the board does not move unless you lift it straight up off the grate.

We just bought the Camco Decor Mate Stove Topper from Amazon and LOVE it! Think of it as a black plastic cutting board that fits perfectly over the 3 burner stove top. There is some rubberized backing on one side and this keeps it solidly seated above the (cool) burners. This works well and the board does not move unless you want to move it. We also use it as a lap desk for our computers; play surface for grandkids, etc. and it looks great.

It costs nearly $40 but we think it is worth it as it is lightweight; durable; has many purposes; etc.

Here is a pic from Amazon.
