I used the cooktop once the 1st year I had my Airstream and that was to boil water. The 2nd year I made scrambled eggs. The 3rd year I ventured to light the oven - didn't make anything but lit it up. The 4th year I went crazy and cooked up several feasts - quite fun actually - reminded me of the 'Easy Bake Oven' Days. I was going to take it out at first but now I'm glad I didn't. Now that I have more time to cook I will enjoy using it. If you're sure your cooking style isn't going to change - take it out! I'm sure your remodel will be beautiful and you will find another buyer who will appreciate it. If I liked the trailer I would buy it with or without stove and with so many cooking options available - make it work out just fine. They won't have to worry about cleaning a used oven!

Mine is currently in the shop having the oven/range taken out and replaced with a dishwasher/range on top. Of course I'm holding onto the oven/range just in case if I decide to sell down the road someone wants it. Though, since to me it seems really only boondockers care about gas appliances, it's a moot point my RV as I've installed a solar array that can easily handle the induction range-top, refrigerator, TV's, and even the microwave all at the same time. The only thing I cannot run without the genset is my AC...but I'm hoping one day even that can be ran off solar.

Thumbs down Have you ever considered totally removing the stove/oven


Would you mind sharing more info, such as brand, purchase place, cost & ease of upgrading to the 30 amp inverter you installed that powers your oven when boondocking?

I use one propane ( 1 pound bottle ) and one kerosene Coleman. Coleman makes a fold open oven to rest on the grates. Can use either/both inside or out. Also these stay folded and stored until needed. Frees up counter space for other tasks. I also use a "turkey fryer" for woc cooking. My 1958 22' Caravanner came with a bulky and heavy stove.

We have a stovetop with microwave underneath. Never use the microwave. Did buy a small Breville toaster oven and keep it stored under the bed and bring it out when needed. We can power it with our 2000 generator when not attached to shore power. This oven is the best, I have the large on at home and use it for baking all the time.
