    On a recent trip I didn't secure the round sink cover/chopping board before we set of, you've guessed it, the first corner it went flying like a disc through the air and broke clean in two, on enquiring with my local Burstner dealer best part of £100 :cry: can anyone sugest a cheaper option please ? (have tried B&Q)

    £100 thats a bloomin joke for a lump of tree
    i'd try a kitchen supply firm or even a joinery place as they would be able to make you one for about £10 at the most if you still have the old one as a template.

    It looks like something similar happened to the sink cover on our Burstner as it had obviously been repaired when we got the van.

    Pretty good repair job though as it sstill fits/works OK. It is also made from some form of plastic so it may be worth enquiring about suitable glue.

    I try to go around corners slower than usual when in my motorhome... :Wink:

    ...my sink "board" has two slats of wood screwed to the bottom which not only holds the wooden disc together but also fit inside the sink and keep it in place...

    JJ :Cool:

    Try B and Q they did a circular chopping board approx £20.00 which I use in our van. I think the diameter is 40 cm's hope this helps. Rich

    We always take ours off to travel. I read somewhere it's dangerous to leave them in cos they could fly off and hit someone. Now I know Burstner want £100 to replace it( joke) I will wrap ours in cotton wool.

    Whatever you do, dont break the Burstner telescopic ladder, comes as an accessory for some vehicles. Ladder once fully extended will reach 3.3m.

    That's not aimed at real Burstner owners - it's to catch out Rapido owners who would like to pretend they chose a Burstner :Laughing::Laughing::Laughing:

    You mean the type of idiot who lays out a load of cash before deciding he doesn't really like the layout:Doh::BigGrin:

    That applies to 99% of motorhome owners. Even the smart ones.

    The dealer gave us 2 of those with the we van, along with 2 Burstner umbrellas and a huge elephant cuddly toy for our daughter. Rather adventurously she named him "Burstner"

    I would look around for a small local woodworking company, get yourself a beech chopping board our even cheaper find someone that has fitted Beech worktops in their kitchen and has an off cut.
    Take to local firm with broken old cover as template and they will cut to shape for you.

    If you lived closer to Chester I could do it for whilst we shared a cuppa, not really a big job, their are plenty of option for material you just need to source them.

    Hope you get it sorted.
