I now have a convection microwave combo & an oven cooktop combo that all look like the coach came from factory with them. I lost a large storage drawer. Very easy switch.

Even more important the wife is happy--and the bad side I'm lighter by about $800.


lol Russell. You need to keep the wife happy.

We use ours all the time, especially if you run into days of bad weather.

There is not a broiler option in most ovens, I have never seen one with. Biggest trick other than getting the lighting of the pilot light down to a science is now the heat settings.

Campers definately keep the Pilsbury Dough Boy in business, thousand uses for them.

I have heard people say before they do not use the oven as they do not want to put cooked food smells in their camper.....I say why did you buy the camper if you were not going to use it. If you are on that tangent, don't use the bathroom either!

The oven is used every time we go out with the trailer!
Of all the things I've lost in my life the thing I miss the most is my mind!

biggest problem we have ever had is learning to get the air out of the gas lines so everything light easier. When setting up camp I light all burners and let burn for a little bit to purge the gas lines. Just have to know where the pilot light is so you can get lighter close enough to light the pilot. I like to cook over fire but when it rains it nice to have a back up plan.

We use ours every trip. Like others have said, fries, onion rings, biscuits, cinnamon rolls, regular rolls, pizza. I am the cook at home and the DW and I work together cooking in the camper. I cant imagine having a camper without an over. We do have a large unglazed pizza stone and that really helps cooking evenly. With that said we do keep the cooking temps lower and cook longer.

We use ours mainly in the fall when in gets cold. Baked ziti casseroles cookies. It is hard to light but its just like a gas oven. Don't get me wrong, I love the grill but enjoy the smell coming from an oven too.

Put us in the yes we use it category. Primarily for things always mentioned. Biscuits, cinnamon rolls, etc.

Use ours for storage and occasionally to cook with.
