Hmmmm fresh cookies

Just finished our first camping trip with our new-to-us 19' 2007 Forest River - Shamrock - Flagstaff. The wife wanted an oven with the new trailer and I wasn't sure why. That is I wasn't sure why until we had fresh warm cookies for desert. Now I know why. Oven worked like a champ.

Are the thermostats fairly accurate or are most people getting portable thermostats?

You may want to put a pizza pan on the bottom just above burner helps oven heat more evenly and stops the burning on the bottom and under cooking on the top if you are having any trouble like we did with stuff burning.

A 12" unglazed floor tile works well also.

That's a great idea! Going to try this on Friday.

I love taking frozen cinnamon rolls, letting them rise on the counter over night and baking them first thing in the AM but have some trouble with the bottoms getting too brown. Cinnamon Rolls | Rhodes Bake-N-Serv

I was wondering the same thing. I'm kind of leery about using the oven in my TT if getting good cooking results is hit or miss.

I love my oven in my trailer, i even cooked a flat chicken in it. It turned out better than cooking it at home in the oven. I am glad that i have an oven since you can't trust the weather up here in Canada

Wife always told me running the oven makes the trailer too hot. I either have to go out and cook on the grill, or take her out to a resturaunt. She wouldn't be giving me false info, would she?

It's a great little pizza oven too. I bring my own sauce and fixins for the dough and it turns out great.

I'm with Milzat on this one. 12" tile does wonders for heat distribution in the oven. Lets baked items like frozen pizzas, cookies, pies, etc cook properly without over-cooking (burning) the bottom. Bonus - you can often get one free from tile shop if it has a small defect, like a broken corner, etc. Just tell them why you want it !!!
