We started out our camping life as tenters.The main reason we got a trailer when we did was so we would have our own bathroom and would not have to rely on the campground facilities which were usually,but not always,not the cleanest.We like to know that our toilet and shower are clean,it's just the way we are.

Our first 30 years was mostly in vans or pop up truck camper without an oven. Got a 5th wheel in 2000 with an oven. First time my wife used it, she badly burned the food, and never used it again. I used it a few times without problems. Got a new 5th wheel in 2010. Right now don't remember if we have ever used the oven or not. Wayne

Gotta go with Herk on that one. We've used ours for cooking once or twice in two seasons.

My cousin brought a "new to her" travel trailer about a year ago. Last week I helped her husband lite their oven for the first time. Learning to look for a tiny spec of flame can take some practice but he got the hang of it after several failed attempts. This was the first time the stove was used too. She does all the cooking in a crock pot or on a outside grill.

I don't think they will use the oven much as they tend to use the stove top for storage of buns, bread, chips, etc.

That can be a problem. On mine, I can hear it when it lights.

The missus says I have selective hearing.

Yes!

Nothing is better than hot cinnamon rolls from the oven at camp! What a way to start the morning. I would miss my oven (and my rolls!)
