Convection/Microwave Oven Combination

We have a 2005 Safari 25FB. Neither of us are much in the cooking department. Even though we have spent 350+ nights and pulled Lucy over 40,000 miles, the oven has been lit only about 5 or 6 times.

Accordingly, we are considering options that better fit our lifestyle. We are considering replacing the gas oven with a convection/microwave oven combination. We would like to keep at least a gas two or three burner stove top in the new set up.

We have never owned a microwave/convection combo. We are looking for pros/cons, advice on brands and use, and thoughts on set up and installation.

Thanx, Brian

I had asked about the conv oven in our Safari. I was told that besides increased electrical needs compared to the 1100 watt microwave, there are some clearance issues required for venting that my Safari just didn't have based on wanting to put it where the existing microwave is located. In my case it's directly the opposite, I would use the oven more than the conv oven, but I wanted the option for cooking when having hookups. Guess I'll just have to persevere.

On a side note, there are many folke (hint, hint- me) that are or will be looking for parts off the Amana stove..mainly the thermocouple supply line.

We are wanting to put the new cooking combos in the space vacated by the OEM oven/cooktop.

When I was looking at a 31' Dinette, it only had the convection combo oven. I had asked Chris Burch at the service center what it would cost to get the standard oven installed (which most likely had plumbing needs, as yours might have electrical needs). Either way, there were some cabinet mods and I seem to recall including the stove it was about $1200.00. Though that was to move from the conv/combo to the conventional oven, I am pretty sure it could be similar in cost, maybe more since you will have a separate cooktop that will be needed.

My friend and I installed a Sharp Carousl Double Grill Convection Microwave Oven and a three burner Amana gas cook top in my 28 foot 2005 Safari in 2004 and it works great. I found that it will cook just about anything I've tried so far. It's not a hard installation at all. You just need an extra pair of hands.
