We bought a convection oven for about $40.00 and love it. We have to watch what else is running on electric with the 30 amp service though. Wife won't light the gas oven and my knees don't like praying to the pilot light. Most state parks have both a 30amp and 20amp service and we use the convection oven on the picnic table on the 20 amp outlet.

It wouldn't be camping if we couldn't bake biscuits for breakfast

I have used:

Propane ovens

Combo Microwave/convection ovens

I prefer the propane oven, even though the microwave/convection combo saved space. Hated the combo. Can't do any "browning" in it, plus I was afraid the high temps would crack the glass plate.

I do occasionally use the oven. I use an electric skillet for most cooking.

I love my Sunseeker, when I'm on a trip I don't wanna go home!!!"

Total days camping each year: AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!

Share the secret of the pizza stone please. DH likes cake and cookies. I like to bake. I've wrestled with the ovens in 3 trailers and still can't get it quite right. I've found using heavier bakeware helps but isn't foolproof. Looking forward to the answer. Thanks in advance.

They are a pain to light, but I could not manage without mine. The pizza stone really does help. Just make sure to preheat oven with pizza stone prior to baking. I also use our microwave/convection oven frequently and sometimes even have both of them going at the same time.

once you light the stove just keep it on pilot until you are ready to leave. I have made cookies, pineapple upside down cake, pizza and will use it a lot more with in the next few years

Related, re Induction cooking

On hot summer days, if we're plugged in to AC, I now use an induction portable hotplate , actually sometimes 2, to cook on outside. These are small and pretty cheap, $100 each or less. Works great, and fast for boiling water, Also great temp control
Anybody else using these smaller portable induction table top units.?

I never gave an oven any thought when moving from a pop up to a hybrid. ThAt camper came with the oven. I have bought 2 more campers since then and would never consider one with out an oven. We use our oven on every trip. I often make a Mac and cheese (the only thing this dad can cook) that my kids (and most everyone else we camp with) love.
I make em ahead of time and freeze them. It's a great dinner and so easy when camping no prep just bake!
It seems like the wife is always asking to have the oven lit. I guess my biggest gripe is its not big enough!
I am gonna get a pizza stone now too!
