There are no good stove hoods!

Most range hoods are rebadged RV units and complete garbage at a premium price.

I found one 12 volt unit with decent build quality and ventilation specs. Itís made by Dometic, but not sold in the US. Europe only. Apparently, they donít want to certify for US.

Iím doing an extensive galley remodel. This unit would look good and function.

Any ideas on how I can get one?

I already tried to have a shop in U.K. send me one. They said yes, but never shipped and Iím having to go through the Amex process to reverse charges. But....even after getting burnt once, I still want what I want. Iím stubborn and donít like to lose!

Seems like the the best bet would be to find boater or RV'r in the U.K. willing to help a fellow boater out by buying locally and then shipping it to you.

Top vent, 20Ē, external exhaust, 12 volt is the most basic requirements. Iíd rather not have to rewire for ac. Has to look nice too. So far very few meet that requirement list.
