When DW and I bought our first RV nine years ago it was suggested to us to look for one without an oven. Waste of space we were told by my SIL. First rig did have one but was never used. Currant rig has an oven also and when we bought it we would of preferred the convection micro but that wasn't going to stop us from finding a rig to fit our needs. Last October while camping in the Finger Lakes region of NYS (wine country) my wife asked me to light the oven, she wanted to make an egg frittata. Easy to light and the frittata was excellent! DW got a kick out of using the oven and another convenience item of our rig, and another aside was how well it heated up the rig on a 30 degree gloomy morning. I am now confident this camping season will see us use the oven often now that we aren't virgins from it, especially with frittata's. I can also see biscuits being made because now it is embedded in my mind from this thread, lol! Yes we have a pizza stone at home we can take with us, but I may pick one up to leave in the RV or you can use patio pavers as unglazed stones sold in many sizes at home improvement stores like Home Depot.

[QUOTE=RiverBird;805444]Pizza stone trick is everything. Great biscuits and brownies. We use our oven every trip

We agree with the above. Pizza stone made all of the difference. You can bake whateve will fit in your oven with the stone. Just check it while baking to not be disappointed with the results.

An oven was on the must-have list when we started looking. We use the oven on every single camping trip. From baking cinnamon buns or cookies (c'mon, you are missing out on life if you don't bake cookies while camping once in awhile) to roasting a nice chunk of meat, to keeping food items warm while preparing meals ( we use the oven as a warmer pretty much every trip out).
I couldn't imagine not having an oven. We have no microwave, and have no plans to install one as we hardly ever use one.

Bought one 2 yrs ago and have no idea where it is stored, never used it as the oven is used for storage only. I guess I'll have to start beating TOWTA again. (make it an even once)

I use the oven a lot and I always have had an RV with one, except a motor home about 12 years ago with a convection/ microwave. I never could get the hang of that . I need my oven for biscuits & cookies & cakes ! I use an induction cooktop( my daughter bought it for us for the RV) I use the oven also to store my teapot that I use for my Melita drip coffee pot ,when we have no electricity, and a large fry pan. I have a pampered chef baking stone(rectangle) that I have used in 3 trailers! I can't wait to get to put it in my new Flagstaff fiver, Wednesday,I hope!!

Place it in the center of the oven on top of the burner plate under the rack.
