We have the microwave/convection oven combo and use them both, every trip.

We have the oven only, and use it almost everytime we camp, unless the forcast is for very hot weather. Nothing wakes a person up better than the smell of fresh coffee and biscuts in the morning!!! We almost exclusively boondock or dry camp, so a nuke-o-wave won't work for us. I'm with Shari, leave it at home.

The PO of our Tradewind says the oven doesn't work. It must have stopped working eons ago as it is new inside. We probably will not miss it but I like everything working. It must be fixable looking as new as it does.

If I had one I would use it. Brownies just do not turn out the same in the convection Microwave.

All the time

We use it all the time. You have to try Melissa's "ho-bo" packs. Sliced onions, potatoes, fresh herbs salt and pepper....

There is not a trip when our oven is not used! We use it for everything from cinnamon buns in the morning, making toast & english muffins and Sandi's famous macaroni & cheese! And all those pot-luck dinners!

I guess what really matters is how much will YOU use the oven!

I've actually removed the stock Microwave in favor of a small one.

For me, boondocking requires an oven, and besides, boondocking or full hook-up, thin crust pizza with dough made from scratch can't be baked any other way!

I use mine alot. Bread and biscuts from scratch, nothing like it. I have made a very specific point of having everything on propane that can be, why have appliances that cant be used boondocking? And for me, the idea is to be boondocking as much as humanly possible.

Is Oven a four letter word?

Here is the thread that had numerous responses earlier this year:
(using advanced search techniques)

My own response to the question:
Our original '84 oven is still lounging where it has always been. The PO never used it and my one & only attempt at lighting the pilot was unsuccessful.
We use the cooktop on every trip and will probably eliminate the oven when we install a new counter-top. No LP oven is something we debate (mildly) when discussing kitchen remodeling. We will reduce the surface burners from 4 down to 2 and capture more countertop space.

The oven of our Safari lives in our garage, replaced by a microwave/convection combo. We're leaving the oven in the Caravel, so that will probably end up being our boondocking trailer. (Just doing what I can to justify having two Airstreams!)

We have used the oven a couple of times, primarily when camped in Daddy's yard in Jacksonville. For big family gatherings we use the oven and cooktop to supplement the stove in the house. On the road we have never used to oven or cooktop. We strap our microwave to the cooktop cover and use the oven to store our toaster oven. What can we say, when we are 'streaming, we like to eat out, get take out, or eat really simple.

We use ours all the time.

Pies, bread, toast, English muffins, bagels, a large ham, a small turkey, warm plates on cold mornings (so the food won't get cold).

I learned at a recent rally that it will store 14 bottles of merlot.....

We save a lot of space by leaving the toaster, microwave, plate warmer and wine rack at home!

Hi, I'm SierraJB, and I'm a User...

Count me a part of the oven-users support group!
The first and only trip (so far), we used our oven both mornings for breakfast. Worked great. We have no plans of breaking the habit...yet.

Airstreams are like a box of chocolates....
