I especially like the idea of all in one stove/sink. It would sure simplify things. The stainless steel looks great, but where to buy one of these units ?

Uh huh. So when you have to pull your stove for any maintenance, you also have to disconnect your plumbing and pull the sink as well.

My experience with 'combination' units of all types - mechanical, electrical, plumbing and appliance - suggests that the problems also come in combination.

You could call T@B and ask.

I personally don't like the idea. Too close together. I often have a dish rack up, cooking time or no, so there really would be nowhere to put it. Unless you had counter space on the other side of the sink.

Most eggs don't.

I agree with Jack.

This is very common in older European trailers.
Dismounting the plumbing of the sink involves only the disconnection of 2 hoses.

Cool. It looks like there is a folding counter-top to cover the entire galley. Nicely designed. (I suppose this is a BIOD?)

Hey, Suz!! Get a load of that kitchen window!!

Screens are an option.
On the photo you see a mountable unit containing a roll-down curtain and a roll-down fly screen.

But, this is an old systeem.
Modern trailers have windows with 'built in' curtain and screen.
Example of the kitchen of a modern trailer (BIOD Nomade TLH)
The curtain is in the window unit (roll-down), the screen too (roll-up).

Very nice trailer - wish we had dealerships here.

What is the weight of your trailer?

Dometic has combined units among their "cookers and sinks". Some, such as the CE 99 Mini-FC-HI-G, have integral covers, but are designed to drop into an opening, not to serve as the entire counter top.

While Dometic equipment is common here, my guess is that many of the European models are not readily available in North America; DometicUSA doesn't seem to show any stoves or sinks on their website. Some of the recessed and glass-covered units are starting to appear in premium RVs, such as some Class B motorhomes and the latest Trilliums.

I like the idea of a one-piece seamless stainless steel countertop with sink and stove, but the chances of finding one of just the right size with just the right arrangement seem small, and there is the issue of needing to buy both if either needs replacing.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

The (little bit annoying) website of the Italian maker: www.smev.com.

An overview sinks/cookers available (/ to be ordered) in a Dutch camping shop.
