IMHO skip the oven and get a convection/microwave to replace the regular microwave. You'll gain storage space and a convection/microwave can cook like a regular oven.

It is a personal choice of how often you are really going to use it. There are instances of people wanting an oven and then come to find that they never use it. The opposite is also true.

But there are alternatives if you don't have an oven, like a convection microwave oven mentioned by Wiscampsin or my personal favorite the cast iron Dutch oven using charcoal to bake stuff (though we are known to fire up the oven from time to time).

Had to have it, never use it. RV ovens tend to burn things on the bottom. Some say you can had a pizza stone to the bottom and fix that. We us ours for storage.

A convection oven/microwave require either hook-up or a generator. We almost always dry camp so those are not an option for us. Love the oven and it gets quite a bit of use. Never had an issue with burning food.

I'll say get what you want. We are using our oven more than we ever expected. And if your dry camping then the Micro/convection is nothing but a storage area.

Anyone find a dishwasher mod that replaces the oven? I think we'd use that more

We wouldn't buy a TT without one. Use it every time we are out camping, whether it be for morning biscuits, cinnamon rolls, or late night pizza / baked goodies.
We bought it to use it.

You can insert a Ceramic Floor tile on the bottom shelf in your oven to create more even heating and prevent the over-burning. Works great!

What are your thoughts on the oven? When I was a kid, it was always nice when my mom would make a batch of cookies or cook up a frozen lasagna.

Do you guys think an oven is worth it?
Contact Mitch at RVWholesalers and just order one. You'll save a ton over buying local and get what you want. They tend to keep several Roos in stock, so they might have what you are looking for already. We use the oven and like it. It's also a great feature to have when you sell or trade on day as most people will use an oven from time to time.
