Inside kitchen stove cover

The cover for the burners is flimsy metal and isn't typically suitable to use as practical kitchen counter space. I have been RVing for over 15 years as an adult and have used the burners maybe once to boil water and the oven becomes a breadbox. I have seen some newer models where the burners are sunk below the counter surface and the mfg put foldable countertop over. Kinda wish FR offered this type of set up

Has anyone come up with a good and stable design to go over the stove burners in the 365saq or other FR products? I would love to hear and see pics of examples. Otherwise I will be up to my own devices creating a new mouse trap (so to speak)...

Love this forum to bounce ideas and share experiences.

Many Members have (Updated,Improved) the stove cover! First step (Remove & Discard) the black flimsy piece of sheetmetal. Next buy a Wood cutting board and turn upside down,place rubber bumppers on the bottom to prevent movement! Done Deal! Youroo!!

Here's the one I made. I put rubber feet on the bottom corners that don't show up in the pic.

I used two identical cutting boards (Amazon) and put rubber feet on the bottom. Sit them side-by-side to make one large area, or pull one up to expose the single burner. I'll be heading to the camper today... I'll try to remember to take a picture.
