I don't use them. I put them in the garage along with the fancy "comforters" and pillows that I will put back on when I sell the unit someday. Otherwise they just take up valuable storage space.

X2 on those fancy pillows and comforter

We still use the sink covers. While not covering the sink, they get stacked, one on top of the other, in an out-of-the-way corner of the counter top.

Me too! We have plenty of kitchen counter space without covering the sink.

We put ours on the sink to cover it when we're driving. When we stop, we lean them up against the wall/backsplash behind the cooktop. We have a propane cooktop with the cover that folds up, so the sink covers are almost invisible since they're the same solid-surface material as the stove cover. Did the same on our previous Class A in which the stove top cover was black metal but folded up the same way.

We're just weekend campers so we're not staying long-term anywhere. Your needs may be different than ours if you stay in one spot long-term!

My sink covers, comforter, extra chairs, passenger seat work desk, are all in my basement at our home.

We have a rack under the sink for them to be stored. It's also where I put cookie sheets and cutting boards.

I put small round self stick felt pads on the bottom of my covers so they don't scratch the counter tops and just double stack them next to the sink

We do all of the above except we only use one sink and keep the left one covered.

We put ours behind the cook top when using the sinks and they go back in place afterwards to use as counter space.

My wife threw out the pillows and comforter (used coach).

Edit: Just realized this is a Newmar owners thread, I will close the door on the way out :-)

Ours fit under the sink, standing on edge. The drain pipe keeps them from falling over.

The right side is smaller and we leave it in place. The larger left side is stored under the slide out drawer in the cabinet over the sink.

Finally put them in the S&B basement along with all the hard copies of manuals. Have electronic copies on Dropbox.

We usually leave the right side in place for additional counter area, the other slides on edge under the sink on the left.
