Well the oven in my Sovereign was long gone when I got it, so stuck a microwave in the large hole in the wall. We boondock a lot and a oven seemed like it would be
nice. Bought a Coleman Campstove oven, sits on the stove..heats upto 375. Folds upinto a nice box about 2X12X12 Not the best heat balance oven, but does a OK job baking biscuits in the AM. Also got the Coleman stove top drip coffee maker, beats waiting for the perculator,.

I love my oven. I use it for biscuits, pizzas, and I've even made enchiladas in it whilst boondocking. It's a wonderful luxury, and luxury is one of the big reasons I bought a travel trailer to begin with. Otherwise I'd still be tent-camping!

Used it for cookies, biscuits, cinnamon rolls, baked chicken vice the outside grill, (kinda raining) and cobbler, plus - lost power for one day while a power pole snapped only had battery so the oven cooked shaken bake pork - all in seven days while at Malibu RVPark last week.

Don't get me wrong - I love my microwave but need an oven as well!!!

The older I get the more I like food. An oven gives that many more options for cooking food. I like options ................
And as has been said before...... an oven cooked meal provides an aroma and warmth on those winter days that cannot be improved upon. I use my trailer 12 months of the year unless the snow drifts have it blocked in beyond the abilities of 4 wheel drive to get it out.

I have learned to not use the bottom portion of the oven for storage while en-route. I did that once and, on the roads I travel, bouncing stuff broke off the propane line to the oven burner. Turned into a blow torch when I tried to light it! Pizza cooked on the stove top was not good at all on that trip.

In our opinion, there is no choice between a microwave and an oven, the oven doesn't 'kill' your food or change the molecular properties of a simple glass of water.....

We use our oven every time out. Along with whatever we make for our meals we try to bring along homemade apple crisp to bake for whoever we run into, yes with vanilla ice cream. So yes we use the oven and happy to share the results!

We cook biscuits in our oven most mornings we are out. Strange but we never cook them at home.

I've used my oven on every trip. Sometimes when I grill I use the oven to keep things warm (small grill surface) while I finish up the steaks etc. I also bake about every trip as well. When it's not in use or when I'm towing I put the nesting (marine style) cookware in there. Works great!

Convection oven once in a while, microwave often, outdoor grille most of the time.

In my 73 Sovereign, the oven sticks into the bunk area. I am doing a remodel, and it seems the space would be better served by a rotating flat screen, similar to the non AS campers out there. To me, it would make better sense to combine a microwave/convection unit, so as to be able to micro and bake(probably only with shore power), or to install a stove with an oven below it. Or maybe just eat out, I am not a very good cook anyhow.

In my '74 the layout is the same. The oven is used to warm uP the trailer by baking cookies on cold evenings. This can be done while boondocking or when plugged in.

The TV fits fine on the other partition, which backs onto the pantry. Since your head always goes at the end opposite the oven, nothing is lost by it's intrusion into the sleeping area (unless you have really giant feet).

You can still work in a microwave (or combo convection) if you want, but nothing beats the smell of cookies baking in a warm trayla!
