2007 Kountry Star sink covers

Hello,


We're just about to sign and purchase the 2007 Kountry Star that we've been eyeing for the last month. The current owner had originally told us that he had the sink covers, but turns out he doesn't!


Newmar informs me that they don't have that Corian anymore :(



Do any of you have the covers that they either want to sell (probably not), or could have a template made?


Any assistance would be greatly appreciated


Nic

1) Which model 2007 KS do you have? Different models have different sink arrangements.

2) I seem to have one original and one replacement sink cover in my 2008 KSDP 3623. Both are the correct Corian pattern and color, but one has a dull finish, so I'm thinking it's not original.

3) I don't like them! They're very heavy and no way I'm going to cut on one with a good knife. So I plan on maybe keeping the smaller one, but replacing the large one with a proper Polyethylene cutting board -- cut to the exact same size and shape. Or I might replace both of them with custom cut Polyethylene cutting boards. In fact, that's probably what I'll do as it's much more practical for me and the way I use the galley.

4) No matter what I do, I will keep the originals (sorry about that). But if we have the same sinks, I can trace mine and mail you the tracing -- and you can use that tracing as a template.

5) Let me know your KS model number and your overall sink cut-out dimensions (simple overall length and width). If your sink appears to be the same size, I'll make and mail you tracings. But don't hold your breath. It's currently 102į outside and my coach is in an indoor storage facility a half hour drive away from home.

Thank you WoodyS


1) Model 3910


3) I'm not planning on using them as cutting boards. I was a chef by trade when I was younger and someone then tried to convince me that Corian made great cutting boards - I don't think so!!! Great way to kill your knives. Loking mainly at having more usable counter top space when not using the sink(s).


4) That would be most appreciated if they are indeed the same size/pattern. Thank you.


5) Thank you. I don't have access to the moho right now - we haven't finalized sale, so I can't get measurement of the sink. But I'm making a note to come back to you when I do (looking at a couple weeks - hopefully by then the heat will have abated somewhat!


Cheers


Nic

Nic,

I just looked up the 2007 KSDP 3910 floorplan. That galley is different than mine. But although the galley sink is reversed from mine (mine has the large sink on the left), the overall dimensions might be the same.

Let me know when you actually get the coach and are able to measure.

Since you haven't actually been in the coach, you might not realize that they came with a flush fitting Corian cover over the range top too. So if you're not using the stove top, with that cover in place, you have a lot more food prep space. Asking a chef to not use the stove is probably a little silly. On the other hand, if you'll be grilling outside, then maybe you can use the stove top space for more prep room.

And although I can't see it in the floorplans, some of the galleys have a folding shelf next to the sink that flips up for more counter space. My KSDP 3623 has the flip-up shelf next to the sink and I leave it up almost all the time -- except when the main slide is in. Flipped up, it's also flush with the counter.

Woody,


Thank you.


Yes, I've been in the coach, three times. I wouldn't purchase sight unseen without a test drive



The stove cover is there and goes a long way to have usable bench space.


I spent some time talking about this with my wife. Likely end up getting solid wood cut to fit in the sink.



Thanks again!


Nic

Hi,
Whatever you use, do not leave them covering the sink during travel. During a panic stop (or worse) they become flying missiles. If you do not know where to put them, put them in the shower.

There are several RV salvage yards around the country that sell parts.

Some have hundreds of late and older models. All of them have websites, but they don't list everything they have in the yard, and as you want a specific color, I would call each of them. All salvage yards ship.

Gary, thank you for that advice. It's something we'd been wondering about - the weight of the Corian vs the weight of wood or polyethylene. We'll make sure to stow them away.


Craig, thanks for that suggestion. My wife has been scouring all the website from salvage yards - didn't realize everything wasn't listed. Might have to spend some time on the phone

Really? They can jump up over the sink lip groove, and then over the 1.5" high backsplash too? So far that's never happened, but we haven't put that many miles on ours since getting it.

Yikes. I never thought of that.
