For the thin firebrick, you may also check out Tractor Supply. I just bought a few tonight for my wood stove. Each brick is light tan, 9in long, 4-1/4 wide, 1-1/4 thick, $ 2.79 each. See:
Tractor Supply Company - Replacement Firebrick, 9 in.

Using these in the oven is a great idea. Just be sure they don't slide about and cause damage or break when the trailer is underway.

My wife, Becky, bakes chocolate chip cookies about every time we go camping. Sitting outside, drinking coffee and eating freshly baked cookies, is now a tradition with us. I better enjoy it - it's about the only time she cooks!
Our coffeemaker fits perfectly in the oven for traveling, too.

We're considering a Minuet 7.3, whose current owner took out the original oven and didn't replace it. Funny, it wasn't obvious, and didn't even dawn on me until after we left.

This thread is making me wonder if I should ask if he has it still.

If you want an oven, by all means ask! New stoves aren't cheap and if you want /need to do an original restoration on "your" Argosy it is something you must have. (assuming the Argosy is of a certain age)

Good luck with your search!

Family of 6..

We use our oven...

Cookies, Biscuits, Turkey Pot Pie, Bread, Roast, T-giving turkey once and belive it or not we use the pilot light to slightly heat the oven which trickles out to the cooktop for drying handtowels used in the kitchen.

We like the oven because it is easier to use "off the grid" compared to a microwave or toaster oven. Gas is great.

I made a homemade pizza last night in my oven and it turned out great. The front of the pizza looked a bit more done then the rear but I'm still experimenting. I may try to get a brick like a few have mentioned.

Some use there oven for storage...DON"T DO IT!!!

We just had a trailer in here today and their oven was not working...the PO told the new owner that he just used to oven to store stuff in while traveling!

Little did he know that whatever he was storing in there had bounced around during travel and broken his pilot light lose.

We found this while testing the oven...could have been VERY bad if an open flame had been close!!!

Cookin' with Electrons

Our SOB was my dear bride's first ever gas oven experience, and she adapted to it very cautiously! Living all-electric for 18 years does get you into particular cooking habits. When we moved to the A/S, the microwave/convection option was a no-contest decision. Of course, we're never out for more than a week, so lightly-browned microwaved meals don't get too boring.

New Seaward Princess Oven

We just saw the new Seaward Princess stainless oven that we are putting in our 68 Ambassador renovation......It is beautiful and comes with a broiler pan (some RV ovens are missing this). It has an electronic lighter so I don't have to get down and put a match to it. I can't wait to make some yummy brownies on our first camping trip. We decided we would rather be able to use the oven when we boondock than to go with the micro/convection set up. We have replaced our home microwave with a Miele steam oven......and except for does a great job. So I am pretty much weaned away from microwave cooking anyway. pj

We love ours (wall model). Great for pizza. However, now that we wont be hauling the trailer anymore it may go as the plan is to build everything up, surround it with a multi level deck with outdoor kitchen, hot tub, change rooms. Have had an office away from home in it for years. Most likely end up part of a guest facility and entertaining area at the cottage now. Since we have regular power outs here in the winter Ill keep the oven but put it outside. Especially since repalcing all the valves and inner controls which was not cheap at the time.

My trailer has the oven/cook top combination. I use the oven quite often, mainly for baked goods, pizza and an occasional casserole and would surely miss having one. I have never used it to broil or roast.

I have a small portable microwave that was purchased specifically for the trailer and gets enough use to justify its existence.

If I had to make a choice between the two it would probably be in favor of the oven as it is more versatile.

I love my oven and use it all the time when we camp. Pizza, toasting bagels, cornbread to go with my chili... I'm going to make my husband a birthday cake when we go camping next week, as we will be in Yosemite for his birthday. I've even invited my family camping at Thanksgiving and cooked a 10 lb stuffed turkey in the oven with all the fixings and had my family (5 or 6 of us - large adults) inside our 19 ft. Bambi for dinner!!! I have never regretted not having the microwave/convection oven. I do have to make my popcorn on the stove!

Thumbs up Micro vs Oven

We use both, they each have there advantages, after all the Micro won't warm the trlr during a chilly dinner hour. Never had a problem with either. Plus we both like to experiment with "one pot" dinners, when they don't work, just fire-up the Micro and warm the LO's.

Wink Using your oven....

We have tried using our oven but it seems to take a lot of propane when we do. So I purchased a Cruisinart toaster/convection oven that sits on my cook top cover. I also purchased a electric single burner. This seems to work excellent and I don't have the propane issues. I do have to move it when we travel (which we do each week). We are full-timers and it works for us.
