Covers for sink, stove

Hi, all.

I have a new (to me) 13' Scamp '04 Deluxe, and am hoping to find covers for both the sink and stove for when they're not in use. What do you all use?

The stove is a 2-burner gas (Suburban SD-2), and the sink is a small metal one, 15 1/4 x 13 outer, 13 1/4 x 11 inner.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
Kathy

Hi Kathy and welcome to the forum! For our Trillium 4500, we wanted a stove cover. A microwave sometimes sits on it when we have shore power. I first made a rough wood prototype for evaluation, and then much later I made this one:

Nice job! That's exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for. I assume it is "hollow" (rather than solid wood)?

Kathy, yes its hollow. The sides are 1/2" solid poplar. The top is 1/2" birch plywood.

I may wind up replacing the birch plywood with solid wood if it de-laminates. Also, this cover was finished with several coats of wipe on polyurethane varnish.

I made something similar to what John did for our Uhaul, using an off the shelf cutting board for the top. Later removed the stove and made that area storage so repurposed the same cutting board as a hinged lid. Another off the shelf cutting board covers the sink. If you need a custom sized cutting board there are a couple sellers on eBay that will cut to your specs a HDPE (plastic) cutting board. I got one with radius corners to fit over the stove in our Casita. They are available in various thickness.

I too have an '04 Scamp13D.

As you can see, the stove cover doubles as a counter extension when cooking, or as a table when the bed is made.
The sink cover is a standard plastic cutting board which was cut to fit the sink.

Here is my solution...

Similar, but a little bit different. Not a nicely made piece of cabinet joinery like some others shown here, but more of a "quick and dirty" approach. Just a bamboo cutting board mounted on 4 short stainless steel legs made from 1" boat railing tubing. Four 1" rubber chair feet mounted to the bottom with stainless steel screws which go up into the bottom of the cutting board. If I want to use the stove, I just move it off to the side and set it on my full-time bed. Works good to extend valuable, (and almost non-existent,) counter space, and makes a good spot to put our coffee pot or toaster oven. The legs are spaced so as to cradle the four rounded corners of the stove top to keep it in place. Just be sure to pre-drill pilot holes for mounting the screws to keep from splitting the cutting board, and make sure that they aren't too long, so they won't "punch through" the top of the board.

I used plastic cutting bords with pieces from a thinner cutting board hot glued to bottom for legs. the legs were plced to cradle the stove. the one for the sink the legs dropped below the sink rim to prevent sliding around.

Here's the kitchen area in my Escape ( and photo of the underside of the sink cover to show how it is held in place. I've considered replacing the commercial range cover with one that doubles as a cutting board, but the one I have protects the vinyl wall from spatter.

Dave;

Note the picture of the rear side of the stove cover, it has a reinforcement, two hooks , and two notches.
I simply open the drawer (deluxe only) as far as pictured, the notches fit on the drawer sides, the hooks hook behind the cabinet face and the partially opened drawer supports the stove cover....

Great design using off-the shelf items. Might steal that concept although I make custom covers using plastics.


Once you have a cutting board that can be flipped over to use as a serving tray outside, you don't go back!

Most plastic fabricating supply companies will cut HDPE plastic boards for you. Or you can just order the material and cut it on your table saw. It is a very friendly material for cutting and routing. You can also purchase it from marine supply stores. Another place to purchase larger sized pieces of it are from the restaurant supply stores. They use it for the countertop material in the prep area. Sometimes you might find pieces of it for sale on craisglist either in the materials section or the section called business.

I'm kinda picky about what I allow to touch my cutting boards, not sure I'd want to use it as the bottom of a serving tray.

This is what i did, works well, light, and easy to move around. The legs straddle stove to clear knobs. Double faced tape for legs. easily removed if you want to change sides. Worked fine for the last three years with camper out in all seasons. held up well. Bought the hdpe board at Target. 10-15$ Carl

We bought a Bamboo cutting board from Walmart and my husband attached the feet to hold it in the sink. Works great!
