Burro owners help

I've been through 26 pages of threads using the search function and I can't find what Burro owners are using as a replacement stove. Except for the fancy Euro looking stove Mark used. I was hoping for something a little less expensive. I looked a the current stove discussion but I think it is a little too small for the opening I have.

Any ideas/links?

Thanks, Jim.

Check on eBay.
I bought a new ADTH 2 burner stove for around $45.00. That was 2 years ago so they may be more expensive now.
It worked as well as the more expensive stoves.

I'd say use anything that would fit and has the number of burners you need/want. RV stoves are available in lots of places.

Jim,
We replaced ours with an Atwood 2 burner cooktop but there are other brands available also that will fit the opening

Fortunately for me, I like the 3-burner that came with the trailer.

My cut out is 17" X 12". It's a little bigger than the stoves I've seen.

Cut Out Sizefor the ADTH is: 16.25" x 11.5". Cut out for the Atwood is the same.

Maybe if I center it it might work but it wouldn't leave much of the lip of the burner box to secure to.

This is what I'm trying to avoid.
Stove

I thought about going up to a 3 burner but it's too big.

If you get a bigger 3 burner stove, you will only have to enlarge the existing hole, rather than having to infill with something to make a smaller stovetop fit.

The 3 burner will not fit.

Jim,
If you or anyone you know has some carpentry skills and/or tools, just cut a piece of ½" or ¾" plywood at least 4" larger than the existing opening or the new opening (whichever is larger) and glue it up under the fiberglass countertop with a good construction adhesive and prop it up from the floor for a day until it bonds securely. You can then cut the hole for the new cooktop at that point or before you glue it in place. You can then glue down some thin trim strips around the opening to cover the exposed edge of the fiberglass and set the cooktop down on top of those. You can make the trim strips as wide as you'd like depending on the look you want once the cooktop is installed.

Hi Jim..when I had to replace my stove, I bought a brand new one named "Traveler" as I recall, off Craig's list! A man had purchased it for his trailer, but never got around to installing it! Had all the plastic on it, paid $50.00 (Cory Hilby found it, Steve Hilby put it in!) My Burro is an 82..Measure & try putting an ad on Craig's list, or 2good2toss if you have such a reuse/recycle site! Good luck if you're still looking! Karen L.

A google search did not come up with anything for traveler rv stove. Thanks for the lead though. I took mine out, cleaned it up and repainted it. It looks good, but the grates have areas where the procelin is coming off. So far I haven't been able to find a place to recoat them.

On a different note, I took out my sometimes working Dometic and replaced it with an electric dorm model. I had to trim the whole opening with aluminum angle since the width of the new fridge was smaller than the old. Of course it was taller so I had to cut out as well.

Portland, Oregon? Try: Finish Line Coatings - Ceramic Thermal Barrier Coatings Exhaust Systems Performance Parts Portland They're actually in Milwaukie. I'm cheap, I'd wire wheel the peeling coatings off and paint with high-temp barbeque paint...

I tried Finish Line and they want $100.00. The 500* paint burned off so I'll try the 1000*.
