How to make burner cover?

Has anyone out there made a nifty burner cover such as the one in this 1977 Trillium or have ideas as to how to make one? I assume it came with the trailer. I'd like to have one for my 2011 Scamp but I don't have sheet metal skills. Fiberglass RV - dphinn's Album: 1977 Trillium 4500 - Picture

Look on Camping World's web site, item # 70064, or item # 78861

Gilda, Scamp makes them out of wood. It resembles a square shoe box lid. They charge $45 (US) for them when you buy a trailer. They might sell you one through the parts department.

I made my own out of some 1X2 Fir and thin plywood.

I made mine about the same as Timber Wolf but put hand holts in side. Can double as serving tray. Can also use to carry food outside.

frame out of oak, fits tight to the stove, then a cutting board screwed into the frame. works very well. also have cutting board for over the sink with notch cut out to fit around faucet. makes for a nice counter top.

You can buy a cheap cutting board from Ikea or such places and treat it and cut it down and frame it as suggested.

Someone here posted a cool cover that served double purpose as well - It was a white serving tray turned upside down that fit over the stove perfectly.

I made mine out of a store bought cutting board and some trim that I had laying about. Reverses for additional counter space.

I used a bamboo cutting board and mounted feet under it to clear the top of the stove. When not in use as a stove cover, I lay it on the bed next to the stove to use as a flat surface to hold things while cooking.

Thanks to everyone for your creative ideas, photos, instructions and suggestions. What I really want is a metal wrap-around design so splattering is contained and can be easily cleaned. I did find this online Splatter Guard - Splatter Shield - Cleaning & Repair - Walter Drake . I'd rather have one that looks like my photo because it doubles as a flat cover and does not have to be stored anywhere. Keep the ideas coming!

Camping World #70065 has the side wings but is temporarily out of stock and may not be the right size? Take an old Coleman camp stove and use the lid & wings off it.

The one from Scamp store looks an awful lot like the one in the trillium picture of your original post.

It is specific as to what stove it fits. This one is for the 2 burner Suburban stove but does appear to have the black handle on the front that the picture you posted does. Do not know if it has the sides. Might want to call Scamp and ask.

The stove in the OP's original post is not the standard stove installed in a Trillium. The stoves used by Trillium were manufactured by a company called Brown.

It looks like the original stove was replaced by something like this:
Propane Stove for Tent Trailer! | parts, accessories | Ottawa | Kijiji

Looks like this is also an option:
Atwood RV Bi-Fold Stove Cover, NEW | parts, accessories | Calgary | Kijiji
