microwave kaput:special microwave or walmart special?

Is there anything special about the Westinghouse microwave in my minilite? I was thinking about just slamming a $50 Walmart special in the camper to replace the one that stopped working even though I have a few weeks left on warrantee to avoid the hassle of taking it in to a dealer. But maybe these RV microwaves are special in some way? Or are they just like the Walmart special and I might as well save the time and put it in myself. Any thoughts?

I think the only special thing is the surround/front faceplate with mounting it.

My wife had been at me to pickup a convection microwave since we had one in our house just before we left.

Replaced my Magic Chef microwave when Camping World had a sale on a micro/convection oven. Had to trim a little on the interior of the cabinet and the trim that came with it fit perfect.

Thanks I called the warrantee number and they are sending a brand new microwave to my house. Thumbs up for Rockwell! First class service on the warrantee which ends today :-(
