We have never had an oven so we don't really miss it. But if we had one I'm sure we would find a use for it. So if we have the choice on our next TT we would probably say yes.

We use ours as it adds flexibility to meal planning.

If we find the trailer with color options/floor, then it does not have an oven.
Order it if you don't mind waiting about two months. It doesn't cost any more and you'll get exactly what you want and be happier with it in the long run. There are only a few interior color options and a local dealer should have most of them in stock to at least see what they look like in person.

Hi wmutkelaw,
We do not use our Suburban oven because it is soooooo hard to light.
You have to get down on your hands & knees & try and locate the ignitor
under the center shelf & using a BBQ lighter try and light it. I asked a
dealer if there was an upgrade kit for auto lighting & he said because
of the risk of propane & the regulations there is no upgrade kit.
If you MUST have an oven, take a look at the Apollo Worldwide line of 3 burner ranges built in with microwave convection oven. They are about 24 inches wide & run $400 to 500.

I've never had one, so I don't know what I'm missing, but I never camp without a Dutch oven. I can bake anything in a Dutch over charcoal. Admittedly, I'll rearrange the menu based on weather if it's storming out.

Our 233S is very shy on cabinet space with an oven. Our dealer recommended not getting the built-in and buying a large toaster oven instead. It was one of the best pieces of advice from our dealer. Added cabinet space and the toaster oven is on the portable outdoor shelf. Less heat in the camper during the summer is a plus as well. The only down side is dry camping requires a generator.

Biscuits, Cherry, Gooseberry, and Apple pies, pizza, cinnamon bread, cookies, garlic bread, Birthday cakes, baked potatoes, and acorn squash so far with our Roo's oven. Before, when we had a pop-up without an oven, we could bake in the carefully temperature-monitored RV-Que grill. I would much rather have the oven! So far, our Thanksgiving camp trips have been at state park lodge campgrounds that have large Thanksgiving buffets (Indiana and Kentucky), but we are considering doing the whole Thanksgiving dinner prep someday in the Roo. I wouldn't have another Roo without it. We did order our Roo new from the dealership so we could select the exact features we wanted, including the oven and the stainless steel appliance package, the dark cherry wood, and the "Churchill" fabrics, night shades, aluminum wheels, heated holding tanks, hide-a-bed sofa. Besides getting exactly what we wanted, we didn't buy a camper that had been tramped in by thousands on display at the dealership or worse, at an RV show.

Love our oven!

I use our oven every trip. Muffins, cookies, casseroles, roasted vegetables, cakes, biscuits and more. I absolutely love using my oven. I have a 12' travertine tile in there to distribute the heat so no burning at all. Enjoy the pics of just a few treats that came out of our Roo oven.
