Re: Range Hood or whatever
Sportsmobile installs the shinny metal as a heat shield to protect easy to melt and and burn fabrics from a potential grease fire, hot spatters or overheated skillet. A range hood with exhaust fan seems like overkill to me for a small van size RV and something that will rattle on the road and have to be maintained. We cook outside when frying or grilling is required as we don't want the van and our gear to smell like stale bacon or stir fry and because we camp and live in bear country -don't want to attract the bruins to our van in the middle of the night while camping or parked in our driveway, they might tear up the vents or PT trying to get to the source of the food aroma.
