To vent or not to vent seems to be the question.

No vent: Fan takes all the smoke and grease you wanted to get rid of, and blows in back in your face and eyes. A real tear jerker affair, and stinks up your coach for a few days. Bacon is not too bad, but sausage or fish..yuckk

Vented: Gets rid of the crap and sends it straight out.

I installed a Cyclone Brand [24 in. 360 cfm hood fan,]. Unit has no grease grabbing screens. Uses centrifical action fan and drip catcher tray. Much easier to clean. It vents straight out the side wall behind the fan unit. I do not hear it flapping when in motion.
My setup works for me, and I'm still happy with it.

We have a rule of thumb-any stinky or greasy cooking foods is done outside. I have both a propane and electric hot plate. Cooking bacon outdoors in the cool morning is just prime. Stinky fish is BBQ'd outdoors also. My stove fan just blows out into the isle then is sucked up into the Fantastic Fan vent in the roof right above the stove. I clean the fan maybe every other year. Good Luck, TomC

We open the window behind the stove and turn on the small 7 inch fan pointed out that sits on the counter top behind the stove and out the grease and smells go. Coach smells fine and not greasy!... Turn the fantastic on above and out goes the heat if any or steam from the oysters etc. Grin

Cooking fish can be stinky. Any greasy meat-like bacon, sausage, beef will splatter and will smell up the bus. Good Luck, TomC

Bacon makes a terrible mess from the grease and, yes, it smells too.

Ah but not if you cook Turkey Bacon. It taste just like Bacon without all the fat and grease. Always liked the smell of cooking Bacon anyway. Grin

Cook a pan full of bacon and brew a pot of cowboy coffee outside-now that's a way to start the day.

If you cook food that smells good you won't have a problem.  My wifes meals smell delicious and leave me digging for leftovers in the morning.

I think venting or not if you are cooking a full meal in the coach its gonna linger for a little.

And I love the smell of bacon.  I have no problem coming into the coach at the end of the day and smelling bacon.  It not only makes everything taste better but makes everything smell better too!

One last thing to think about...if we do cook fried in oil meals...we have portable induction cooktops that we use and we will go outside when we can and fry out there.

     Sean, if you cook in the bus, you'll have little droplets (OK, I'm not sure how you could have big droplets, but anyway) of water, oil, grease, etc. in "aerosol" in the air.  This stuff will settle on *everything* in a bus and give it a few hours and after that it will get smelling REALLY bad quickly and the bad smell will last for a long time.  An exhaust fan will blow this stuff out and reduce this stuff inside significantly; not a perfect fix but it helps a lot.  No matter what, if you cook in the bus, you'll have to do a grease-removal cleaning on hard surfaces and fabrics but an exhaust fan will reduce the smells and make it a lot long between "big-cleans".

If you are having any problem with odor build up, you could use an ozone generator to get rid of it.

Very effective for cleaning surfaces is just using good old Windex. Most all finishes are polyurethane-which is plastic. My ceiling is painted white, so all interior (except for a bit of industrial wall carpeting) surfaces wipe down easily. Doing the entire inside only takes a couple of hours. Then I'm set for the next big adventure. Good Luck, TomC
