After several years of using aluminum foil as a splash guard around RV stove, we found an inexpensive and more durable product. Disposable cookie sheets do wonders. We can buy two for about $4, and they will last a very long time. The 15×10-inch size works fine. Simply place them around the sides of the stove, and wash them when required.  On our stove, no attachment is required. Stow them away in the oven when not in use. Who knows, you might even need them to bake cookies someday!

    I use a plastic cutting board and a insulated cookie sheet, propped against the wall. While traveling they are stored in the cabinets above the sink. I slip them in and let them stand in the opening, then shut the door. This keeps things from shifting and falling out when the door is opened.
    Also, the microwave is a great place to store your bread and buns. It keeps the glass plate from jumping around while moving down the road.

    I use Clear contact paper over the walls around the stove, wipes easy, doesn’t look like have anything on the walls, keeps everything clean and new looking
    in our new rv… just spay with cleaner and wipe!

    My husband cut very thin plexigalss sheets to fit the walls to the side & back of the stove (up to the cabinet level, and screwed them in place. They easily wipe clean, and still look new after 7+ years. He also did the backsplash behind the bathroom sink.

    We also installed thin plexiglass sheets around the walls by the stove. Wipes up great and doesn’t cover up the wall pattern–looks invisible. I like the idea of the backsplash on bathroom sink–will install.
