I like the flush top, glass top units but the propitiatory flip up faucet scares me. Since the hole for the faucet is there you have to use it. Until replacement parts are available here I'm not ready just yet to jump into one. I like the cleanliness of these all in one stainless steel units. In my 13 foot Scamp as much of usable top space on the kitchen cabinet you can get the better. I have covers over the stove and the sink but the Bi-level height of the surface doesn't help much.

I just wish they made a single burner stove, counter flush with a lid!

My German Eriba trailers use these units with a wooden flip back cover panel

My Trillium also came with the 3 burner stove with a separate glass cover over the sink. The first thing to go was a plastic grommet that holds one of the grates in place. Next the chromed plastic faucet broke at the base. Rather than spend $75 for a replacement I removed the cover and added a metal high rise faucet for half the cost.

It turns out the added height is a big improvement. Raz

A caution

When I was searching for parts I ran across a thread where someone ordered a unit from overseas and ran into thread incapatabity at the gas connection. Raz

I really, really like the hidden sink and stove idea in the Eriba. And wish I could convince (brand) to do something similar. I would have had it in a heart-beat. The sink would have to be much, much deeper though. My coffee cup won't fit in the shallow sinks!

Escape put one of those sink/stove combos in my trailer for me, and i have had no troubles with the tap. If I had to replace it, I would go for a good quality folding, as we really like the flush sink cover.

I had a couple of those grommets go fairly soon, and Escape mailed me a package of them. For some reason in the last 5 years, not one has gone.

I actually haven't looked, Raz. I just assumed with their popularity that there had to be some good quality ones out there, even good plastic ones. Even in metal taps they use plastic and rubber for the working parts (the cartridges).

There are several fold down faucets available from marine supplies. Several brands and pricepoints ($60 to $100 or so). Whale makes one that looks like it would probably fit as a replacement. They also make a "telescoping" faucet.
ITC, Ambassador, and Scandvik (love their stuff) and others... This one from Scandvik is really unusual. Probably way pricey, too. http://www.scandvik.com/index.cfm/me.../14/ID/922.htm
I like the high goosenecks on the marine folding faucets. Best of both worlds... more room to fill a dishpan or pot under the faucet, folds out of the way when not needed. Need to check the specs on less expensive models. Many of the $30 -$40 faucets are cold only.

Mine is a cold only bar faucet. Works for us as we have no water heater. I checked the marine faucets and could not find one that would fit. Since the sink is about 4" deep, the extra clearance made the dishwasher happy. All's good.

Jim, have you had any problems with the glass lid on the stove side hitting the burner grates? I had to glue a bumper on the glass to provide a little extra height on mine. Raz

Bumping this for those who are interested. After many hours day after day searching ebay and craigslist, I found this baby for $130. Super stoked on the counter space gained in the scamp!
