Great point, Phoenix, and I'll be sure to hide it from my other half! Our existing stove is a hazard, so something has to be done. I am all over the simple solution, the 50 buck unit from Costco, and have been haunting Craigslist and ebay for some kind of used stove available locally. Thanks for the reality check.

However, it's only useful when full hookups are available or when running the generator(s) to charge the batteries. So, our destination, stopovers and trip duration determine whether it gets stored in our trunk with the other stuff we usually forget we brought.

Otherwise, we're satisfied with the OEM burners and oven (which functions as a pantry for bread, chips crackers and store-bought cookies and snacks).
So you take along an electric toaster-oven and use the built-in oven (that can work without hookups) just for storage? Is something wrong with the gas oven?

Question

Looks a lot like the Amana in our Classic.

Our oven probably works fine, but we just don't bake stuff while traveling (too messy and takes too much time). Also, the oven "pantry" makes up for a lack of storage for other things that usually get crushed (like bread and chips). Otherwise, it would probably contain pots and pans we don't use either.

Our microwave is really handy when stopover times justify getting it out and firing up the generator. (I should have mentioned that the Oster baking performance is mostly from home use, where we also do not use our big oven, except once or twice a year for big Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys.)

Robert Cross, that was one of the appeals of the Seaward, that it looks something like a more period piece. BTW, the Seaward weighs 93 pounds vs the Atwood at 63, if that doesn't suggest more substantial than I don't know what will.

I hear ya Bob, always capacity for couple of bottles of something nice, Junipero gin for martinis, maybe some limoncella to sip under the stars. Martinis and pizza from the oven, grilled asparagus, goat cheese and caramelized onions, tastes even better camping!

Do these marine type units have a better way to light the oven pilot vs their RV cousins?

I cant speak for the others but the Force 10 on our boat has an AA battery powered igniter system that has survived 8 years of hard sailing (including a half dozen "wet" Gulf Stream crossings). It is one of the things we love about the stove/range. Unlike other brands we have had before this one simply works and works and works..... I keep thinking I should modify the dumb piezo on our Airstream with a similar system, hmmmmmm........

We love....

......having the stove/oven in our Classic.

But I will admit the oven gets used much more as a "bread box" than an oven.
I will defer to the DW here, "that looks like a really nice stove but it sure costs a lot."
She has her tools and I have mine and never the twain shall meet.

Unless it's a Rabbit.

Doh. You did get me. I get that too, more like "WHY does it cost so much?". I think the Seaward doesn't have the battery igniter, just a pezio like the lesser ones. I figure it's like the igniter on our BBQ, which is pretty simple and lasts. Is the oven lit with the same igniter?

I can't say for sure, but I seem to recall the DW lighting the Amana with a butane pencil.

Well, however it lights, we're looking forward to our next trip, hopefully with a new range.
