Is cutting board the sink cover

I have a 2016 minilite 2503S. My question: Is the cutting board a separate item or is it the sink cover also?

Most of the time it is based on if you want "Cut mark's" on your sink covers! Your choice! Youroo!!

IMO I would buy a cutting board. several styles that adjust to fit sinks.

Sink covers cover the sink.

Bought these from Bed Bath & Beyond.

I am guessing the bottom of the sink covers - not sure I would use them that way but I think that is how they were marketed to us.

They are marketed as cutting board/sink covers. But they are pretty flimsy and will get chopped up quickly. We carry separate cutting boards and never use the sink covers for that purpose.

since we have the same trailer(actually your twin, Micro Lite 25KS), you may find the link below interesting, .... Its an idea w/photos that I posted several months ago about cutting boards and the sink area, ....... I did forget to add in that post, that if making one, be sure to use stainless screws,....... she/we love the added space it gives,......... happy trailering .............

just a small idea

We use these from Pampered Chef. They're thin, flexible, very light. Work awesome for TT.

During walk through the guy said that a lot of people use the sink cover as a cutting board. I packed along cutting boards and DH used the sink cover. It left knife marks. He decided that it is better to use the cutting board. On the last trip out the sink cover warped. So one of the new mods that will be done is to replace the cover with a two piece cutting board. That way we can use the sink and prep at the same time.

Cutting Boards - Pampered Chef

As "Riccochet" says the Flexible Cutting Mats work FAB!!! The standard sink-cover cutting board will dull knives & look ugly. Here's the link for THE best cutting boards anywhere! They come in 2 sizes with 3 in each set. Go to
