Replacing Magic Chef in 1984 Excella

I want to replace the 4 burner Magic Chef in my 1984 Excella with a new stove. It appears that all the new ones are 3 burner. Are 4 burner still available? Also, I measured the width of the stove and it is 21 1/2" wide. Is this the same as the 22" stoves I see being sold?

Thanks for your help in advance,
Ben

Can any answer Ben’s question? I may be looking at this in my ’84 Excella, too.

It involves a suckling pig and a rotisserie.

Actually, for me, the problem is trouble with the oven thermostat. I kind of like the arrangement I have seen on some of the high-end 3 burner units. Of course it is the high-end units.

Four burner stove

We had to replace our stove and oven last year (we wore it out). I looked everywhere for a new four burner. What I found out is that only one company, makes RV stoves. Doesn't matter what the label is, there's only one manufacturer. And there are no new four burners.

So we bought a top of the line Atwood three burner with a new type of oven burner that works more like a conventional house type oven: it comes up to temperature and lowers itself to a very low flame, then flares up when it needs to bring the temperature back up to the set temperature. The stove top has one high output burner and two normal burners.

The down-side for me is, I miss the fourth burner. Because of the way the three burners are arranged (single burner center front, rear right and left burners), if you use a large sized pot, such as a 12 inch frying pan or a pasta pot, you cannot fit any other pots on the remaining two burners. I hate that. On the old four burner, I could use my largest pasta pot (8 quart size) and a 12 inch frying pan at the same time by placing them on diagonal burners.

Of course, if you don't cook much in the Airstream, none of this will matter to you.

We did the same thing in our 310 moho - went from an old four-burner cooktop to a new three-burner oven/stove combo. The one high-output burner in the front is nice, but it does get cramped when you are trying to cook multiple things.

You can try to find a good used four-burner stove. Try RV salvage places (like Colaw's). The will probably be about half the price of new.

Thanks Steve,

At that time, I didnít realize that the oven in my Excella was misbehaving. I should have thought of it for the Trade Wind, though. Oops.
