Its the latter. A long fireplace match or butane igniter will work well.

X2 LOL (our oven at the house barely gets used also!!)

We use ours all the time. We have baked cakes, muffins, cookies also have roasted beef and chickens. we have a ceramic tile in the oven. Ours also cracked because we could not find an tile that was not glazed. The tile even cracked helps, the oven does not burn. We will be purchasing a pizza stone for the oven.

have u tried quarie tile? believe that is what they call the red flat stones.

we use commercial grade bake ware and it does well. Nordic ware has commercial grade (NSF) heavy aluminum bakeware. it is made in America and is sold at Walmart (if u can believe that combination).
we find the heavy aluminum distributes heat better for more even cooking.

we use ours every time we camp. since we dry camp most of the time, we can't use the micro so we use the oven.

Wow..Your oven must be considerable bigger than mine. I not sure that I could fit a cornish hen let alone a turkey.

My wife and I used ours many times to cook mini home made pizzas, casseroles, and to warm up things like chicken fingers etc. Our new one doesn't look like it was ever used before, I hope to make many good meals in it. When we travelled in the heat of the summer though we tried to cook every meal on the bbq to avoid heating up the trailer. In the fall and spring we would look for ways to use the oven.

My guess is if you use your oven at home a lot you will use it in your RV and if you're not into using your oven much at home, you won't try to use the less commodious rv oven.

I can't imagine getting any turkey worth eating into our rv oven. But I'd love to spend thanksgiving in the trailer.

Our turkeys are small in Canada. The biggest Turkeys are in the USA.
