I copied previous posters by removing the metal stove cover and replacing with a wood frame supporting a plastic cutting board (my version is not as elegant as more accomplished wood workers).  To “store” the cutting board when using the stove, I built a simple wood bracket which is bolted to the fiberglass cabinet wall.  The bracket is two piece but after installing the bracket, I don’t think the horizontal top piece is too necessary.  What is critical is placing the kerf the appropriate offset from the fiberglass wall so when the plastic cutting board is inserted, the board clears the protruding AC duplex outlet.

Looks great, but it wouldn't work on a trailer with the furnace option, because right where your bracket is mounted is also where they installed the fresh air intake grill. But it looks good and it is obviously handy.

Re furnace....wasn’t aware of this conflict. Glad one isn’t necessary for our camping experiences, although we have used a small radiant heater for those occasional cold situations.
