Thanks.. it's bulky.. we might use the stove once a day but use the extra counter space all the time!

I work for a MFG company that makes architectural laminate doors... so I have access to all of the laminate manufacturers. I called Forest Rivers parts department and they gave me the name of the laminate. She said that each model each year uses only one color. Anyone can buy laminate on the web retail... it's 2 to 3 times real cost you would pay at the mfg's, plus shipping, but it's out there. I would assume since my laminate was Wilsonart that all Forest River would be. They would get a $ break for being exclusive.. so if you get the name or color number just google it with Wilsonart. Other manufacturers would be Formica, Nevamar and Pionite.

Now that is NICE!

I've seen owner mods here that became factory standard (like the LED awning rope lights)...so maybe someone's payin' attention!

We have the Corian counter tops, and we have the glass bi-fold stove top...I'm wondering if we could get a matching piece of the Corian and have the edges rounded/finished.

Our baby has the island sink, and I love that they left/kept the sink cut outs that fit right back down into the sinks, creating much more counter top space on that island.

I learned from someone we ran into with the same model that keeping the topper for the smaller (right)side of the sink stored while camping makes access to the sink *and* the additional counter space easier.

We have solid surface countertops, wonder where to get a chunk of that? It's like particle board with an epoxy poured on it.
