They are nice to have, but don't let it be a deal breaker. You can always get a portable camp oven if you need one.

My popup had steel wheels with plastic chrome wheel covers. Had it for 20 yrs. Best of both worlds?

Thanks for all the replies everyone. So the oven isn't a deal breaker at all. Wheels appear to be a nice to have.

2 other questions then.

Slide topper on a 233s - a must or a nice to have? And power tongue jack. I have read that it seems to really be much easier with one for a wdh. Opinions?

Slide toppers are one of those great debates. Most people who have them, will have them again. A small few won't have them again. A lot of people choose not to have them. My vote is I ordered them with my camper and will have them again.

IMO, I'd totally spring for the power tongue jack. Though, it sounds like the one from the factory can be noisy- maybe it's better to get the manual jack and then buy a specific brand/model aftermarket? (I've never had one, just saying what I've read.)

Slide toppers seem to have some opinions each way. Ours came with one, and it is great for keeping leaves and junk off the slide, but the real benefit, I think, is that it keeps the water off the top of the slide. Everything is sealed, so you don't have to have the topper, but I feel a lot better knowing those rubber seals aren't the only thing keeping the rain out.

On the power tongue jack - absolutley get one. You will not regret that expense when you are hooking and un-hooking with the WDH. The factory one is pretty inexpensive and convienient, or have an after-market one installed. Some of the after-market models are quieter and probably a little better built than the factory supplied jack, but either way, this would be the one option I would not skip.

Slide toppers and aluminum wheels for sure. Power tongue jack and power stab jacks, both very good additions. A Dewalt 1/2 18 v drill and socket can work quite well as power stab jack alternative, that is what I used with my 2703SS.
