Oven replacement

I have a magic chef 4 burner range with oven that I would like to replace with a newer model. Does anyone have any suggestions on a replacement brand/model. I'd like something a little more modern than the original 1979 clunker magic chef.

What are your issues? Our 1979 clunker magic chef in the Safari works fine. I think that the new ones are only three burner, several are available at your local Camping World or RV store.

My issues are it isn't well insulated..the door dosen't close tight very well, although I've tried to fix this several times. The glass front allows food crumbs, spills etc to get in the space between the glass door and the oven door proper..it's impossible to clean without taking the whole door off.
I thought there may be something more technologically sounder (insulation -wise) on the market...that's easy to clean as well.

OK, you have some problems. I think I saw one for sale in the classifieds here, take a look or try the RV stores.

Yeah.I agree. Out of interest, do you know if oven/renge combinations come in a standard fitting size?

I don't know, because I have not looked for one, but I assume that they are all the same width and depth. They are used in more than just AIrstreams.

Oven Replacement

atvmcg,

Would you be interested in selling your thermostat & knob for your old oven once you find your replacement? Maybe that would help offset some of your cost.

I would go for a convection Microwave mounted under a new cooktop that allows for multiple pans to be placed on the top even if there is only three burners.

Yes the oven is propane - but by the sounds of a lot people here they are always hooked up to 110 power so the mic is fine. If your boondocking then your the adventurous crowd thus the BBQ is your only desired appliance

Our oven in three years came in handy 3 times - to as an alternative furnace to keep us from freezing to death and once to warm up some TV dinners that ended up melting on the shelf - resulting in a stink and a 2 hour clean up. But they do look cut the ovens in the 60's

I also saw a real cool propane grill warming drawer combo - that would go great under a cook top in place of the oven - but I can not find it. I think it was in some marine site - a boating appliance - but stated it was propane.

Good luck with your replacement go for functionality rather than looks if you use it a lot....

Looks like the oven knob is spoken for if you remove the unit. I'd be interested in the stove top knobs if your so inclined

Just a thought

IMHO, if I were replacing the range in my trailer I would use the Amana sealed burner cooktop. It is in the new 07 trailers for A/S.
