Ovens are a great place to store extra bread and bags of chips! Thats what ours gets used for.

Guess Joan & I are doing something wrong - when we ordered our "Little One" we didn't choose the oven option. Realized that we didn't use the one in the trailer we sold enough to make up for loosing the additional storage space.

I have the -->4<-- burner stove w/oven. its an "estate" brand which is same as whirlpool. we use the oven lots, baked chicken, hashbrowns, steaks, roasts, fries, cookies, muffins, pretty much anything. Of course in the summer we grill outside as much as possible!

GKconfer: I would not buy a new trailer without a oven. We cook mostly ouside the trailer on a separate barbecue and we hardly use the cooktop to cook because it is too messy. But I can tell you that a roasted chicken in these ovens cannot be beaten. Even when the trailer is parked in my driveway we use the trailer oven to cook chicken. The humid cooking that is created by these gas oven is: your chicken is very tender compared to a electric oven . You will also find that your trailer is easier to resell with a oven and a double door refrigerator.

The Stuff: was your stove and fridge an option from your dealer or did you put that in yourself after?

Our stove and fridg was an option on our mini lite and this is worth it. The only annowing thing on our fridg is the cooling fan that cycle quite often on and off and at night it can be a bit disturbing. I found out that they all do this. By looking at your photo more carefully I can see that your stove is a free standing, the same on your fridg. So I can conclude that you have almost a park model. Neverless you have a super nice stove.

Our fridge does not have a cooling fan....at least I don't think it does. The power center and converter underneath the fridge has a fan that comes on intermittently.

Nah, you're not doing anything wrong. You're just doing it different. Like I said above, we used the oven in our first TT just once in 5 years. And that was to see if it worked. For the type of camping we were doing, we did not need the oven. So far in the new 5er, we have not needed it while camping, but it sure did come in handy when the house oven was kaput.

Just like the old saying goes...Different strokes for different folks.

They don't all do this. Some makers are now including a
cooling fan on the back of the refer. Some owners say
the fan is annoying especially at night.
Some owners or dealers at the owners request are adding
a switch so the owner can shut off the fan at night.
This is the cool time of the day.
The refer door is shut because the campers are in bed!
The only problem with this "solution" is you have to
remember to turn the fan switch back on the next morning.

Seems like it's always something.
I've got a "bird clock" that chirps on the hour.
It has an electric eye so it does not do this at night
when the room is dark.
IF they can do this on a clock they could do this on a
refer fan but I bet they won't.
Good idea tho......
