Is there a Gas Cooktop/Micro Combination?

Just wondering if anyone has any info for a replacement for our old Magic Chef gas oven.

What I would love to have is a gas cooktop with a microwave/convection oven combination. I've searched online and can't seem to locate anything close. Any ideas?

Specifically, I can't mount my microwave overhead due to the existing cabinets that I don't want to lose - so I need something that will simply replace the existing Magic Chef gas range.

I realize that I can just get a cooktop and alter the cabinet below to accept a microwave - I just thought it would be great if something exists that I can do a more simple swap. The entire galley cabinet is out of the trailer right now, so wiring is not going to be that difficult.

MJ, is it all one piece, or are they separate?

The one thing about the microwave is that you have to have shore power to use it, not so with a gas oven.

I opted for the microwave under the counter and replaced the cooktop. I also have the original gas wall oven. You could mount a convection microwave under the counter, but I doubt you will find any unit that comes with the cooktop as well.

Here is what I did:

That looks great and is about what we'll have to do also. We'll have to modify the cabinet where the existing stove is now.

Thanks!

On a related note, has anyone used this cooktop? It has sealed burners so cleanup should be really easy.....but I'm wondering if the grates stay in place while traveling? There doesn't seem to be much detailed info.
