Looks great! What an improvement! No oven is one thing I have a hard time understanding about the newer Airstreams.

The propane oven is standard. The convection/microwave oven is an option. More $$$ for the dealer. Just a few hundred bucks on top of tens of thousands???

Local dealer's excuse, the unit gets the power outlet for the microwave. But they still have to plumb the gas line if someone wants the gas oven. Either way, the get more money if one wants to go back to the standard oven that was a no charge item.

When we ordered our Classic 30, we wanted to delete the microwave in the center kitchen cabinet stack and make that kitchen drawers as we wanted the standard propane oven in the right stack. (The sink is the left stack) The excuse now is that Airstream no longer makes the wooden cabinets for the Classics and they could not build a center drawer stack. That is just bovine by products.

If the convection/microwave option is selected, then the gas oven changes into drawers with the gas cooktop above, unless you specify keeping the gas oven.

Was it a difficult to uninstall the Microwave and install the oven?

Additional Freezer/Refrigerator sources

Additional Freezer/Refrigerator
I could not find a thread on adding more freezer or refrigerator space and I thought my experience may be helpful to others. For my travels I need more freezer space. I originally ordered a Dometic portable ac/dc freezer/refrigerator. I received it and it could not hold a temperature. I attempted to try to work with technical support at Dometic and found out they do not have any technical support and that they rely on dealers. So I called a couple of dealers that had support center status and none of them wanted to help me. So I returned the product. I contacted Paul May at Equipt1.com (801)-573-9769 and he was very helpful. The best product on the market is from a company called National Luna. It is a South African manufacturer. They got their start by providing the refrigerated boxes that transport medicine to third world countries. It was out of my budget, but very nice. There is a mid-level brand called indelB and it has the same power supply, but much less cost and even slightly less expensive than Dometic. I used it for 4 weeks solid and it was flawless. I hardwired it into my Interstate with an extra long cord so I can move it around if necessary. Additionally, it can be switched with an included cord for AC which makes it handy to pack the freezer at home prior to a trip. It also has a sensor to prevent draining the MH batteries. It is extremely quiet and very efficient. I hope this information helps. Steve

Coffee pot and water hose

This week we got a stove top coffee pot and new 50' water hose. I'm breaking in the coffee pot right now. It's an 8-cup Farberware classic series. Coffee tastes great We wanted a stove top pot in case we didn't have shore power.

The pink flamingos are on order and should be arriving this afternoon. I think we'll head down to the state park next week if the weather is nice.

Another fantastic cooler company is Yeti. Their products are used by hunters to bring the killhome with no spoilage.

Yeti is nice but looks like a styrofoam cooler compared to Pelican chests.
