I had one of these is my Escape 19, as a combo unit with the stove, and we loved it. Yes, the sink was small, but all our dishes sat in it just fine, and there is merit to a small sink. You used less water filling it, saving on your reserve.

We found that we rarely closed the sink lid though, as it was in use much of the time, but the stove cover was very often closed, giving more room for food prep, and for doing dishes too.



This is the one I have in my garage to put in my daughters trailer. I prefer it over the one I had.

That's a good idea... I've wondered about those too.

Here is the SMEV I use in my Hunter. It's 32" long but easy peasy to cleanp my stove spills. I made custom fit cutting board to fit over the sink area for prep.
I think that the only known stocking dealer in the U.S. is Panther RV in Seattle.
Quiz: How many different IKEA products are in the pic?

I'll guess four: countertop, faucet, shelf, and hot plates.

Both right, depending on how you count: Counter top and shelf (2) shelf supports (2), trivets (2), Mixing Faucet (1)
Thanks....

I like the idea of using those shelf supports for extra counter space. I had already thought of using would countertops in my upcoming 5.0. I wish Ikea had them in 3/4", instead of 1 1/8" r 1 1/2" only.

Bob, that is an awesome kitchen setup. I'm also jealous of the smooth surface on the surrounding walls (mine is painted wood and carpet).

I wanted to just put a stainless backsplash up, but then noticed the counter is not quite level. I don't like it anyway, so would like to replace, but why put ugly sink back in? This is how a simple fix becomes a money pit!

Has anyone found a U.S. based source for parts for the SMEV stoves? Raz
