Us too, bought a micro wave/ convection oven on May 07, used it in Bertha for 15 months, and now in the apartment. Drove cross country and it never wiggled.

Oh, yeah, Wal Mart 149.00


When people lie to you, and refuse to honor their word, don't regret trying to follow a dream, new adventures and friends await you.

We bought a small $59.95 microwave at Walmart in 2000 when we got our Caravel. When we are on the road, it rides on the floor right over the axle.

100K miles and nine years. Works just fine.

However, as mentioned before, things that run on electricity can quit anytime.

Smoke.........All electric stuff runs on smoke, which is put in the device at the factory.
If you let the smoke out, the device will smell bad and quit.

I just hate it when that happens...

I may have set a record a 1975 Sears microwave died this week. While it was never in the Airstream it has moved around a lot lived in VA, NC, SC, OK with no problems.

The Sharp in the Airstream has held up for 5 years bought on sale for $59.
