Cooktops, Grilles & Ovens
When you’re out on the open road, you want to know that you’ve got a solid caravan cooktop to do all your food preparation on. We stock a range of cooktops which are suitable for mounting flush within your RV or caravan and which are designed for indoor use, as well as a couple of outdoor cooktop models which are perfect for grilling outdoors. What you choose is entirely up to you, your preference and the space you have available.
Some of our models, like the Thetford Spinflo 3-burner model, are designed to be as much like home as possible. You will enjoy features like a flame failure (which means that if the flame goes out, the gas will stop flowing), and detachable and easy to clean pan stands. Other models like the Lido Junior 2-burner don’t have the flame failure feature and, thus, aren’t suitable for use inside your RV or caravan. But no matter what you’re after, you’ll find it with us.
As we mentioned above, most of our camper cooktops are designed to be used indoors and mounted within your vehicle for easy, weatherproof use. So, you can cook up a tasty meal in the comfort of your RV even while a wild storm rages outside!
How good is that?
How to Make Sure Your Caravan is Safe
There are plenty of guidelines available to let you know how to install your portable cooktop - but we have a short guide here for you as well to make sure. You must be aware that in order to comply with regulations about gas-fitting in caravans and RVs, you must have a gas fitter run all of the pipework and junctions, or at the very least to have access to your DIY plans in order to ensure that AS-5601 (Australian Standard Gas Installation Standards) are being met.
Who can do my gas installation?
If you are designing or building an RV from scratch and you’re buying your cooktop for your new build, then a licensed plumber who is also a certified gas fitter will be needed to install, manage and potentially relocate your gas appliances as well as for managing any kind of pipework that’s being done.
Where does my gas cylinder go?
Many of you will already know that a gas cylinder can’t be installed inside your RV, caravan, motorhome or camper trailer. You must ensure that your gas bottle is installed in a compartment that is sealed from the outside and vented properly. You also need to make sure that a reflective LP Gas Storage sticker is on the outside of the compartment.
Are there restrictions on which gas appliances can be used and where?
The range of caravan cooktops that we sell are almost all suited for indoor use - but you do need to check with the model that you choose.
How much gas will I use?
This varies, but it’s always best to make sure that you have plenty of gas when you’re out on the road. You probably won’t be using all of your gas burners at the same time, so you know that you won’t have too many problems cooking for an extended period of time.
