Changing oven to microwave question

I'm considering purchasing a 2015 25' FB Flying Cloud. It has a 3 burner stove and gas oven and no microwave. The 2017 units have a convection microwave instead of an oven which seems ideal to me. Has anyone replaced their oven with a microwave? Were there special problems? Is there ready access to electrical and room in the electrical panel? I assume a new cook top would also be needed. Suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.

May be $$$

I have a 2016 Classic that had the oven, cooktop and a convection microwave. We decided to replace the oven with the two extra drawers. We felt that since we had a convection microwave that we would rather have the extra drawers than the gas oven that we rarely ever use. I had the work done at JC and they done a beautiful job! It was expensive since it required a new cooktop, face frame for the base cabinet, two new drawers and hardware, plus a lot of labor. We are happy with our decision, although those are probably the two most expensive drawers that I have ever bought. I was however able to resale my new oven and recoup a portion of my cost. I don't really know how your trailer is laid out inside but JC can do just about anything that you want.

We have a 2013 25FB Flying Cloud. It has only the gas oven built in. A convection/microwave unit was optional that year (and many other years). There is a circuit breaker for the microwave, and there is a length of romex wire connected to the breaker, that runs toward the kitchen. I assume the other end of that wire is lying on the floor under my oven but I have never gone looking for it.

We do have a countertop microwave that we sometimes take with us. When traveling, it rides on the floor. When we set up, we place a finished board on top of the cushion at the base of the television, and put the microwave on that. User "moosetags" on the forum has done even better; he built a cabinet to house his microwave; the cabinet is right under the TV.
