Aren't the Smev cooktops being installed in the new Airstream Sports?

It looks like a more conventional (US) sink in the Sport, but I would use them in a second. I love the way the range looks (except for that oval window). Fingers crossed, just scored a vintage range for us... we'll see. Love the Mame quote.

There is a 24" Smeg Oven freestanding available. Does anyone think that this could work in an airstream application? I wonder if you could remove the feet and storage drawer and install as a built in. Any thoughts?

I would wonder if the residential SMEG would deal with the vibration of an RV installation.

so, I've been around and around trying to get the parts for the old Magic Chef, to no avail. I mean, like calling all over the US to find the thermostat etc. Apparently there is mercury in the thermostat. After two camping trips with one functional stove burner and having to turn off the main gas to the stove each time we use it, I've broken down and will be ordering a new range this week. I met someone with a new Airstream with the Atwood range I want so I got to see it up close. Amazing how disorganized Atwood's catalog is- using the catalog number with retailers was useless, I had to make a number of calls to Atwood to find out the specific part number for the specific stove I wanted (sealed burner/stainless/pezio ignition) then the retailer had to call their supplier to see if it was available and get a price. Sheesh. The shipping is the killer.

Globie,

I ordered my Atwood range: stainless steel/sealed burners/piezo ignition(originally ordered electronic ignition but evidently no longer made)/silver control face, on 03/18/13. Still waiting. I don't know why it is so hard to get a hold of these ovens or parts. Not to mention it cost more thane a household range. Hope you get yours soon. We full-time in our stream and have not had an oven in 3 months.

~Yevette

yve79, that's interesting. Sorry to hear about the delay, I hate it when stuff is delayed inexplicably. Atwood is easy to get through to, but the way they sell their stoves is really a mess. They're supposed to have several of what I want in stock, I guess I'll just hold my breath and take the plunge. Yikes.

Well my oven came in, but it was the wrong one!!

It looks like the problem may be on Atwoods end. When I called them today they said all the individual options for my oven were available but when he entered them it would not give him the correct part number. So as it stands, I have no oven and none on order. I really miss baking.

yve, that's a drag. I talked to Atwood every day for a week to sort out what I could get from them, and it was amazing how difficult it was to get someone who could answer my questions. I haven't ordered it yet, but your experience has made me want to be more careful. They didn't make up a custom range for you? I look forward to baking in ours, sometime. Good luck

Did anyone ever have any luck with the smev products? I have been researching combination oven ranges for my resto but am having a difficult time. I've been looking at marine units from this site.
Propane / Butane Stoves & Ovens
They look nice, don't require an electrical connection which is good, but they cost an arm and a leg. Any suggestions!

Funny, I was just looking at marine ranges too- the ENO looked good, and I figured for 900 bucks for an Atwood, hey, what's another 400...

ENO Gascogne Three-Burner Stove at West Marine

I'd pay a little more for what may be a substantial improvement in quality because I don't want to pay what seems like an arm and a leg for something I won't love. Remember, RV and marine ranges are pretty specialized, it's not like going to Sears and buying a 30" Kenmore range for $379, it's more like buying a Dacor for $4000.
