Rangehood for Scamp 16?

Happy New Year (S)Campers!
I'm just about ready to phone up Backus MN to order a Scamp 16' w/ side dinette.
One option I have not decided on yet is the 12v rangehood. Coming from a tent trailer with no inside utilities I am inclined to not get the rangehood with the expectation that most cooking will be done outdoors. Of course, one of the reasons for getting a Scamp is to enable quick overnight stops while travelling rather than only doing multi-night camping in one site.
If anyone has any experience with the value, or lack thereof, for a rangehood I would appreciate comments.
I don't think we will be doing any major cooking inside in anycase. Either quick meals or heating leftovers.
Thanks.

Unhappy Hood

Doug,
I can't seem to find a picture of one. I don't have one and never even thought about one. When considering it, my opinion would be it would add weight to the upper cabinet and then also where would it vent to? I can't see having one.
My thoughts.
K.

Exclamation Ventline Range Hood

I see one now in the Scamp parts store. It appears you would have to vent out the roof. The less holes in the roof the better I say.

You have a window right by the stove, you have the screened escape hatch that you can vent near the stove, you have the fantastic fan exhaust-intake at variable speeds. All near the stove. Don`t see the point, but that is just me. Carl

Doug:

In seven years, we've never felt we needed a range hood in our 16'er side dinette. We vent any extra heat created by the stove using the Fantastic Fan in the roof. That's been more than sufficient for our needs. Less is definitely more with a trailer.

I have used my Scamp 16' for six years now without a stove range. I do use the stove top most days for boiling water and making breakfast but avoid cooking any fatty foods inside if possible. Leaving the window over the range open and running the Fantastic Fan when cooking works fine.

the window works better than the range hood and it is hard to bump your head on the window!

I stick a 5" computer "muffin" fan from an old PC in the window. I plunked a 12V outlet using an old RCA audio connector above the window. When I need to vent I jam the fan in between the sliding screen and the frame, plug in the plug, and let 'er rip. Works like a champ.

Thanks for all the comments. I had all these thoughts myself but it's nice to have them verified with some experience. So no rangehood.
