Vibe 65xx Small Mod

Just a small mod we made.

Added a stove cover to give us some counter space when not using the stove.

Attaches with only 2 screws. Flips up to use the stove.

Its made by Suburban so it fits the stove perfectly.

Great Idea....I will have to see if I can track one down for our 6504.
I also added a flip up counter extension at the end of the counter which adds a little space when needed.

I got it at Dyers RV - Item # 48797

When you get a chance, can you send me a pic of that counter extension.

Hi, We have a Vibe 6501 and I absolutely need one of those! Have you seen anywhere to get a cover for the sink? I was going to get a cutting board and put it over the sink, still looking. We're from Manitoba but heading down to SD end of June via Minneapolis area and stopping in at a big camping store in Roberts (?) so we might find a few things there.

I'm looking for one for the sink also. I'm using the cutting board for now.

When we aren't towing, I store my cutting boards above the cabinet over the sink. There is a small gap between the roof and top cabinet on our 6501 (1"-2") which is perfect to quickly stow thin objects.

That is too funny, I just noticed that space this weekend while we were at the trailer and was trying to figure out what to store up there! Great idea.

We bought a cutting board to go over our sink in our Vibe 6501 at Camping World and it fits perfectly over our sink.

That's a great mod! I do the same, have a cutting board I use over the sink. I have the 6502 and would be interested in adding that mod to my unit. Great job!
