Is this an over-sink cutting board?

We recently purchased a used Casita. There is a cutting board/shelf in the camper and I can't figure out what it is for or where it should live. It's just about the same size as the sink, but is too small to fit over the sink. There is 1 hole drilled in each corner a couple of inches from the edge. Obviously for some kind of mounting hardware, but what? Ideas? I'm having trouble loading the photo I took.

Don't know if this will help you identify your object, but, Escape used the sink cutout in the cabinet to increase counter space when the sink isn't in use.
Pix show it in use and also show the underside and how it stays in place.

Marge, can you post a picture. Maybe it's some modification a previous owner made. We don't have the sink cover that Glenn pictured, but there are a couple covers that look like that and they are the covers for storage areas under the seating. Those covers only have one hole in them though, a "finger hole" to pull them off.

Sounds like a rear corner shelf to me. Its an option from Casita. Do you have mystery clips on one of the corners a foot or two above the bed?

Thanks for the suggestions. I tried and tried but can't get a photo to load. Below this box there's a box that says "add video" but I tried that and no picture. Above this box there's an icon that says "insert image" but it asks for a web address. When I try and drag the photo into this box I just get a separate box with a huge image, but it's not connected. Hmm.... I'll get my techie husband on it and try again.

But in the meantime, there isn't a single finger hole, just 4 small holes, 1 near each corner. We do have a shelf that hasn't been attached, but I don't think this is the same thing. Why would they put holes in all 4 corners? It won't work over the sink because it is ever so slightly too small and starts to fall into the sink hole.

No mystery clips that I've seen, but I'll take a look. I'll also compare this to the shelf I know is a shelf (also hasn't been installed yet)

Thanks for the suggestions. I've tried and tried but can't get a photo to load. Below the box I'm typing in there's a box that says "add video" but when I put a photo in there it doesn't load. Above this box there's an icon that says "insert image" but it wants a web address. When I just try and drag a photo into this box I get a huge image in a separate box that isn't connected to this. Any other thoughts? I'll get my techie husband on this later and give it another try.

In the meantime...there isn't a large hole for lifting it with a finger and it's slightly too small for a sink cover. It starts to fall into the sink. But that's about the size. Could be a corner shelf, but then why would they put small holes in all 4 corners? I didn't see any mystery clips by the bed, but will take another look.

Ahh, thanks, Glen! I wasn't scrolling far enough down and didn't see the box for attachments. OK it's right side up in my computer but upside down here. But at least you can get the idea... the dark dot in the lower left corner (when viewed correctly) is a hole for a bracket of some sort. There's one in each corner you can see if you look closely.

When taking pictures with an iPhone, hold the phone horizontally, with the home button on the right.
Or, download the picture to a computer and use a photo processing app to rotate it and save.

Glenn, thanks for all the suggestions. This is crazy! It's definitely right side up in my computer but consistently loads upside down here. I've tried flipping it in my computer so it's upside down but it still loads upside down here. Definitely some kind of glitch. I give up. Hopefully everyone can get the idea from the upside down photo?? Sorry!

looks like the same wood finish that is in our '96 SD17, but we don't have a piece like it. Have you looked under all the cushions for a missing cover, in closet, and along the floor. Our TV shelf is not shaped like that.

Here we are with our new baby...this one is right side up. Easy peasey! I don't know what is going on with the photo of the board. Bob, I'm going to go loook and see if there's a cover missing. But that still doesn't explain the small holes drilled in the corners.
