hinged stovetop cover...

I've seen many threads related to folks making their own stovetop covers (I use a cutting board) but I'm interested in a metal hinged cover that will stay put without issue from the kids, or bumpy roads.

I have the old 2-burner Coleman stovetop. Does anybody know how to find a used one that matches this specifically? I've searched online with no luck.

I've also looked at 2 Atwood options - but can't find dimensions on the first (which has square corners, like my stove). Amazon.com: Atwood Mobile Products 56461 DVC3-SLR 3 Stainless Drop-In Burner Cover Fits DV 30: Automotive


The second has rounded corners so I don't know that it'll fit the squared stove corners - tho the dimensions work otherwise. Atwood DVC2-SLR 56459 Stainless Steel 2 Burner Cooktop Cover Trailer Camper RV

Any experience or thoughts? THX!

I did retrofit a cover to my unit, but it was a standard RV burner and oven unit.
I'm not familiar with the Coleman unit that can be found in RVs, but the second link in your post reminds me of the standard Coleman top for their stand-alone camping units. Maybe you could find a used one of those and see if it can work.

Personally, I don't care for the metal lids. They rattle and unless the material is fairly heavy weight, it doesn't make for a good surface for putting a cutting board, etc. on top. The previous owner of my Scamp made a wood "box" type cover. It fits tightly when down and provides extra counter space, which my trailer desperately needs. I just flip it up to protect the back wall from spatters when using the stove. Works for me! YMMV

I started with a store-bought breadboard and ended up with this.

In my not-a-FG-trailer, I have a suburban two burner cooktop ( model SDN-2 ). I bought the cover from them that is made for it. It was about $50, and comes in either stainless, black or white. My cooktop measures 18 & 1/4" wide by 13 & 9/16" front to back.

Thanks all!

@Donna - I understand your thoughts. I'll say that we're yet to cook in the camper, so it's more for utility of having the space for setting things, than having it as a chopping block. And again, I really want something fastened so it stays put. Since I don't ride back there, the rattling will go unnoticed

@LK Gray - great mod! thanks for the pic

@george - thanks for the pics as well. I'd seen these suburban tops/covers, but the stock photos don't show the front black piece well, and your pic does. THANKS!
