If anyone here wants to discard theirs, I will gladly take then. I have a few ideas what I could do with some nice pieces of corian.

I cut up the one that came with our rv and made it into a bed-side shelf for DW. Then I made a pair of maple butcher block ones from an old work bench top. They add counter space, and are used as cutting boards when turned over.

I think they were designed to allow you to do things on the counter.

We leave one on to set the plastic dish dryer. The other one we use as a cutting board. Our material is strong and doesn't scratch. This may not be true with all of them.

There are lots of floor plans out there with limited to none counter space. The covers help out a little. That was a big factor in choosing our RV. No counter space- not for us.

Our newmar was missing a topper, and we found the little one trying to spring the kitchen side slide. Talked DH into cutting a 1/4 inch cutting board to fit the large side. Gave me a cutting bd and extra prep space.
Our still new to us Foretravel has the sink toppers and they do weigh a ton. My first improvement is making two cutting bds to fit using the stone as patterns. The originals will then be stored in the garage along with our 2 ton table. Which has already been replaced with a 24x24 adjustable,folding table from walmart. It fits in the space in the pantry and is portable for use outside too.

Please post a pic of the new table...I am keenly interested.

I HATE the table that came with our trailer.

Our MH has the 1 piece corian counter/sinks with the heavy covers, and ours have the cutting board material on the bottom side as well! Also we have the slots under the sink to store them too! Our stove top has the hinged two piece corian cover that folds up and out of the way for cooking!
Monaco Quality! Rail!
PS, we have plenty of counter space, but would not think of discarding the sink covers!

Thanks scottandanna and lady puffin, this floor plan was the one I was looking for when I found "Mona", it also has two big leather couches, the pay off for the big kitchen, miles of counter space, side by side Dometic Elite fridge, is the small bathroom, but it is still big enough for me, and the wife, and really, how much time do you spend in the bathroom anyway? It has a nice makeup counter and mirror with lots of light for the DW in the bedroom! And it has 5 closets! And room for a stackable W/D in 1 of the closets! All in a 38' DP! Very happy with my find! Rail!

I think the older motorhomes are much more practical. Now everyone wants as many slides as possible and 1-1/2 baths which takes up a lot of space. This floorplan is awesome for a 38'!!!
