I think almost all trailers have the option of convection microwave or gas oven and microwave.
The advantage of convection microwave is that you get a couple of more drawers for storage.
We never used the oven when we had one, so we don't miss it.

I believe that quite a few AS models do not offer a gas oven, even as an option.

Yes, but not with everything else running like hot water, refrig, and full load on converter. Just make sure hot water is on propane and you should be fine. You may also need to put refrig on propane.

When we got our 27 fb it had the micro convection oven. It was low to the ground and really complicated to use. I had to take out the manual each time we went camping. I understand that they've changed the model and it's much easier to use now. Because it was such a pain, we changed it out to the gas oven. I'm much happier and found we use it a fair bit. We have a convection oven at home so I'm familiar baking in them but the gas oven has much more space inside. I bought a small cookie tray and roast vegetables, bake cookies and muffins etc. I thought we'd get a countertop microwave but we haven't and I don't miss it one bit. We defrost meat by putting it in a plastic bag then putting it in a bowl of cold water. I actually like this way better because the juices don't leach our like with a microwave. Leftovers get reheated on the stovetop or in the oven on a low temp.

I finally can use the convection oven without referring to the manual, but it is low- under the counter-
I either sit on the floor or in the dinette booth to use it.
Press convection.
Select temperature.
Enter time.
Press start.
Pretty easy after doing it for a while-

I have the convection/micro combo. Can't live without the microwave but the convection part is a pain to use and too small. I prefer to use the gas oven when an oven is needed. Also I have been unable to find cookware that will fit into the convection oven to catch juices and what not. No so much of a problem with the gas oven.

I've got the convection / microwave combo and like it. It's kind of ugly looking and the text is unreadable unless you get down to its level. Also, there's no option for toast. I mean... really? Of all the options, no toast. Sure it can be done manually but it always over cooks into a large crouton without the seasoning. Crunch!

We selected the plain microwave in the Classic as it was being built order. The 23D was a "stock" unit in inventory with every option so it had the convection microwave. The stock Dometic propane stove/oven will be replaced this fall with the Dometic CU434 stove/oven like we retrofitted to the 23D (standard in the 2016 and later Classics and maybe the Pendleton models). In the Classic I have to get on my knees to see the instructions and on the 23D get on my tip toes as it is mounted above the refrigerator.

We seldom use the microwaves except for something like baked potatoes as the original propane ovens seem to lack the ability to maintain a steady temperature.

Microwave for heating lots of stuff. Oven for muffins and we will try it out on some dinner menu items this fall. Specifically wanted both. Convection is a great method, just not in the small version offered. And if you are baking muffins for the rest of the week, you can't heat the last two for breakfast while you wait for the new ones to cook if the microwave and the oven are a combination. The worst about the deal is the location. At home the oven is on the wall where you can see it and the microwave is as well. No so in the trailer. Space and design do make a difference, but we all compromise a bit to see the world. Just figure out what compromises work for you.

Travel safe. Pat
