Admittedly it is VERY small inside.

But when camping with no electricity it does come in handy for warming/cooking/baking 'flat food' - as nothing else would fit.

I am in Canada and yes - a turkey could fit.... if it's sliced turkey.

Hey, wait a minute.....I resemble that.

Baked biscuits in our oven yesterday morning during a weekend camping trip, as we do at least once every camping trip. The missus has down cornbread many times, also. It has also been useful during occasional power outages at home. Personally, I would not have a camper without a gas oven. The microwaves and convection ovens found in many new campers are useless if you are dry camping.

We used ours once when it rained all day, otherwise I like to use the grill when we camp. The oven is usually the breadbox.

I love to cook outside. As far as the oven goes, we very seldom use it, preferring our Holland Companion. (Much more fun!)

PS I've read that you can use a pizza stone instead of tiles to distribute/moderate the head in RV ovens. Never tried it but it seems like it should work.

We did use the one in our old camper to make Thanksgiving Dinner about 5 years ago. I cooked the green bean casserole and buns. I think we warmed up the pie in it too. No Turkey…we did a chicken in the Dutch Oven. It was delicious.

We use ours fairly regularly to cook homemade pizza,frozen fries and fish sticks,cookies,etc.Not saying we couldn't do without it but it is nice to have.
