New Cutting Board Stove Cover

I was at an RV show last week and then over at my RV dealers lot and I am seeing alot of the new Coachmen Freedom Express units have a new Cutting Board Stove cover. I asked my dealer service department and they didn't know anything about where I could get one. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks

I was looking at the newest model of my trailer and also saw that. I emailed Coachmen and this is what I learned:

"We can get you a cutting board (butcher block) if you would like to order one. We just started using them a few months ago. Itís basically what you saw, just something a little nicer to cover the stove top.

I could order it for you, C01287939- CUTTING BOARD, STOVE TOP PANEL 3/4" X 17" X 24" W/1-1/2" LEGS $132.00"

If you are interested email Coachmen parts. Its on their website under contacts.

I agree with Wiscampsin, if you're at all handy should be an easy mod, a nice piece of oak, a little wood glue and some quality cutting board oil (if you're planning on using it to actually cut and prepare food).

I have that useless glass folding cover over my stove and I'm planning on removing that and making a cutting board cover to replace it during the off season... (once I find the time...!!)

If you have a cabinet/counter top supplier in your area, stop by and ask them if you can buy/have a stove top cutout from a counter top. I used the cutout from a Formica counter top cut it to size and simply added some feet to the 4 corners.

Got an IKEA nearby. I'm sure you'll find a BB cutting board that you can cut to custom spec at home.

Yup, my handy work. There are little rubber feet screwed into the side pieces at the 4 corners to prevent it from sliding around when cutting. We don't use the stove top too often, most of our cooking is done outside on the grill or over the fire so DW appreciates the added 'countertop' space.

We bought our butcher block stove top cover on Amazon for around $40. It has a rubber mat on the bottom that keeps it in place. We have a small kitchen in our unit and this increases counter space a great deal for me.

Thanks

Excellent responses..... I agree for the cost of what Coachmen sells them, I can get a lot more accessories..... Saw a Camco CB online for about $25 and can easily add sides to get it up high enough... Again, thanks for the info everyone...

Cutting board cover

We just bought cutting board of the right size from Walmart and glued 4 strips of 1/8" plywood underneath to fit tightly between the rods covering the burners. This doesn't slide off in transit and will slip between the hood and pantry cabinet when the stove is in use.

The Tiffin MH we previously owned had recessed sink and stove in the corian counter. While very nice the corian inserts were very heavy and hard to handle without dropping. Plus they took a lot of storage space most of the time.
At my wife's request I made inserts out of cutting board plastic that I ordered online. I just used the originals as patterns and cut the material on the band saw.
Don't remember where I purchased the material but it came in 2' x 4' sheets. I started the project by looking for cutting board material on Google.

As long as you do not need a cutting board,,, you can just make one out of plywood and Paint it,,, it adds a lot of counter top space,,, when you are not using the stove !!!
Very easy to do,,, and cost very little !!!
