We use our oven every trip. Biscuits in the morning, sometimes pizza at night. Really came in handy on the 4th of July weekend, as we were boondocking on the river. Almost never use the microwave, just for re-heating cups of coffee.

Exclamation Thanks.....

All your responses were great!!!

The suggestion by Wabbiteer about using the oven to warm up the trailer without firing up the furnace brought up something hubby and I talked about. Our furnace is missing too. This winter, while working in Moby, we plugged in a little ceramic heater that worked just fine. Of course, if we were boondocking..... Wabbiteer would know about cold mornings, being from the Northwoods. I've come out of a cabin in Perham a many a morning and could see my breath - and it was JUNE!!!

Somewhere I have seen a propane table top oven that is used outside. It can either use canisters or a direct line from the tanks. Just can't remember where I saw it. It would be one more thing to haul around, but it would be an option. Anyone know what I am describing?

Thanks again for all your help.

hello silver67 ,

We used the oven in the airstream to bake some Nestlie toll house cookies
and french bread to go with the spagetti or pasta we like to make when camping .so It is an asset ,and toll house cookies are not the same ,don't really turn out right in a microwave.Is it a princess oven?

Please do not try and heat your trailer with the cooking oven. This is a very dangerous practice.

This can go both ways.
I ordered my trailer with a convection microwave. That deletes the oven. great for storage but I would like to have it when I boon dock. My generator will run the microwave if I had a great desire to bake something.

how so?

I found that just the stove top burners will heat the thing up in pretty short order.

I wanted to do it with the oven once in my house during a blackout (snow storm), but on the newer gas ranges, the oven won't light w/o electricity. stove top burners will, though..(with a match). apparently, the oven's gas valve is electronic.
anyway, power was out for 8 hours in the dead of winter, and it was starting to get uncomfortably cold. I had to shut the stove burners off after a half hour or so. It was amazing how fast they heated up the whole house.
