Any thoughts about durability?

No idea. I am going to try to go to camping world and ask that question. Maybe i can get them to hit it with a hammer or use a green scrubber pad on it.

I questioned the durability of the product as well. I will give an update at the end of the year as to how it has held up. We have used it Mothers Day weekend and Memorial Day weekend without using any kid gloves and so far it looks great. ( I have a 7 and 9 year old that doesn't treat anything gently ) I redid the stainless steel sink with the porcelain paint and I will tell you that it has not faired as well. I am in the process of looking for a new stainless sink to replace it.

Well since it snowed in Colorado this weekend, I thought I would check in and let you all know how the countertop paint has held up. So far this year we have been able to camp a total of 24 days between weekends and 9 days in South Dakota. I have 2 kids 7 and 9 and a DW who refuses to treat the RV with kid gloves, and so far it still looks like the day I did it. (I have even had a scentsy candle wax spilled on it and had to iron it off). I am very impressed with the durability and think it may the one of the best mods we have done. This is a mod I would definitely recommend!

Adam: That look so awesome!! Question...what material was the sink covers? Going to do this to my beast, but i think the hard part maybe painting the lines.

Thanks for sharing

I made them out of 1/2" MDF. I also used felt pads under them and between the 1/2" and the felt pads it sits just below the countertops.

How difficult was it to remove the kitchen counter? Was it just screws holding it down or glue down? and did you have to remove the stove?

Thanks

I did have to remove the stove. It is 6 screws I believe. (4 on top and 2 on the bottom.) then disconnect the gas. The countertop is just held on by screws. It wasn't too difficult but time consuming as its just awkward and not a lot of room. I carried the granite paint to the underside as you can see it as you walk in and removing it is the only way to router the edges all the way to the end.

Their is a vinyl seal above the counter top edge that runs against the wall. Did you also paint that or remove it. Kind of hard to see what you did in the pix. Like everyone else, this project just got moved to my next project box.
