Flush mounted stove? Experiences?

Am thinking about installing a flush mounted propane stove in my new to me SMB. The original owner kept the propane for the Suburban furnace but deleted the stove. I know that the standard stove rattles unless padded with a kitchen towel; just wondering if the flush mount rattles too.

Any issues with this upgrade? Tell me your experiences, good and bad.

I ordered my van with a flush mounted stove. So I have not experienced the other kind.

I am happy with it, it works well. It hasn't rattled yet, though my van is not 4x4 so there really hasn't been much of a chance for anything to rattle.

If this is the type stove you are talking about, it's great. When the lid is closed it's flush with the counter. It is a high quality unit.

Its a great addition to our SMB. No rattles and looks very sleek. When not in use, it becomes extra counter space.

We love it!

One note on both types of interior propane stoves. Make sure to check the temperature in the bottom cabinet beneath the stove after a short burn. We stupidly used to store flammables and meltable materials in the bottom drawer, which can get quite hot. Now we have just metal pots and pans stored beneath the counter top propane stove.
