Good move. You want the oven. We had an oven added. Making a pie in the convection oven dry camping running on a honda 2000 is just not a fun experience.

We had an oven installed after that. Use it all the time for pizzas, meatloaf, you name it. Good luck.

Which Oven Brand?

I see multiple people on this thread that put in new ovens. I am afraid I may also be to that point. What brand/model ovens did you put in? My current Magic Chef has a 4 burner top and an oven. I think a 3 burner top would be better, but we still need the oven.
So what did you put in?

Too Bad we're at different ends of the country but we're going the convection route and today I just removed our Magic Chef oven from our '66 Overlander. It is spotless inside!!

I am in the process of planning a trade with a friend who has the same trailer model as mine except that mine has an oven (which is used only for storage and which she covets) and hers has a cooktop and drawers (both of which which I covet).

The stoves are suspended from a metal frame and held in only by 4 screws and the gas connection. I'll need to remove the drawer hardware and framing from hers and my oven will slide right in. It will take me just a bit longer to install the drawers in mine, but my hobby is cabinet work, so that is minor.

The cabinet tops are different, so that swapping the folding covers will be more trouble than swapping the actual stoves. My cover was a bear to get unhooked so I'll just leave it off until we do the swap.

Having seen some of that cabinet work, I have no doubt it will look great!! pics as you progress?

bumping in on an old thread here..

but how much power does a convection/micro oven use.. ?? i have seen comments on dry vs hooked up camping using one but no power or watts usage figures..

also how long is one, convection type, needed for say frozen pizza's. I know in my conventional elec oven at home it takes some 15-18 min depending on size, thickness of crust etc.. and that is with a 5-8 min preheat time.

so when dry camping with say 2 batteries and a good 300 watt proper solar system would LP be better over all or combo convection/micro.. cooking during sunlight times for batteries to recharge before dark.??

now how about a three combo,, lp, convection, micro oven... WOW i just blew my own mind...

happy july 4th to all the AirForum folks.. i truly feel a kinship to many of you i have never met.

carl
