We saw the new glass stove top cover on the RVs at our local RV show in January. I really didn't like it and prefer the metal cover even if it isn't very thick. Does anybody have experience with the new glass cover?

We had the metal one before but love our new glass one! It looks so much nicer to us. It's safety glass or something like it. It's flush with the counter top and makes it a real plus for us.

I made one very similar to this and then took it to a shop that makes cabinets and counter tops. They took me out in the shop and let me pick out formica from their ''scrap" bin. They put it on my board and twenty minutes later, less $30 bucks I was out the door.

Love this forum to bounce ideas and share experiences.
And, in that vein...

Do you not cook anything in your RV at all? To each his own I guess but 1/2 the fun of 'camping' is my wife and I putter around the kitchen in the afternoon and cook dinner together

I wisely don't take part in the cooking, but my wife gets antsy if we go out to eat too much and she doesn't get enough time cooking in the camper. It's maybe even more than half the fun for her. She likes cooking outside, inside or a combination of the two. Most of the gear on our camper is cooking related.

Thanks bodz but I can't take credit for it. Saw it on another forum and borrowed the idea.

We do a ton of cooking, just not inside the camper. We have a camp chef 60k btu stove and a weber 3 burner grill. Breakfast in the griddle most mornings. Nothing like cooking outside in the morning with the smell of fresh coffee brewing and the sub rising. We have been very creative with dinners too.

Half the fun of rv'ing for me is toe outside most of the time. So cooking inside is not my first choice.
