We would not have a camper with out one. Like everyone else used for taters biscuits etc. but also used as a food warmer when cooking for the whole family. Hard to cook hash browns and eggs for 6 at one time. I just get an early start and put them in the oven as cooked. Woks great.

I'm so glad I started this post! So many great tips on using the oven. I have a round pizza stone I use at home so I will definitely be moving it to the camper. We are moving our camper out of indoor storage to my daughter's house the end of the month. It will be scary getting it out of storage and towing it since this is our first TT and the only thing we have ever towed was a pop-up. But we are so excited to be able to start using it and figuring out how everything works.

We use a small convection oven from Wallmart $89.00 work great. Keep it out side in out door kitchen. Best money spent / cooks perfect.

The stones are subject to breakage so wrap it in a towel or some kind of padding before moving down the road.

Start out towing slow (baby steps are good) as you put miles behind you it will become second nature.

No person on this forum or anyplace for that matter started towing like they had done it forever.

Good luck this year and as always.

Oven

As mentioned we have been RVing since 81 and only burned up 1 pizza. That was enough, never used the oven in any of our RV's since. Our 8528IKWS does have a pan drawer under the oven. Two more could have been in place of the oven. I am currently building a truck camper that will have only the 3 burner drop in cook top.

Is there anything that a gas oven will do that a microwave/CONVECTION oven won't do, other than blow you up or singe all the hair off your arm and eyebrows? You can use either one, or both at the same time. You don't need a "stone" with convection heat as it is already equallized throughout the oven. They make great cookies and pizza. Been there, done that.

We have never used the oven in any of our trailers. We have a small sized wood pellet grill that we use for everything from bacon to pizza to casseroles....Since there is no direct flame it is used the same as a convection oven. At home we have a larger pellet grill we use for everything. Hardly ever use the home oven for anything..

This thread just inspired us to bake a pan of brownies. Rain moved out of N Georgia. Sitting at the fire. Hank Williams mix on Pandora. This is camping! This is the life!

2x on the pizza stone!! We burned the bottom of cookies and biscuits till we learned about the pizza stone hack.....made all the difference. Also we added an oven thermometer to ensure the temp was as needed sine we didn't trust the markings on the oven temp knob....learned that the knob markings were very close.

We primarily just bake biscuits in the oven and the trick I learned from my grandmother was to flip them about 2/3 way done. Have not thought of the pizza stone before but will have to try that.
