ha! ha! Haven't used oven yet - matter of fact, haven't used much of anything yet except the bed. Did that come out right??

Am driveway camping, so have access to nice house. I love sleeping in the 'stream, though.

Am a bit intimidated by my oven - the whole propane deal. I guess most newbies are afraid of blowing themselves up.

Prefer the oven to microwave, though, so will have to outgrow this phobia.

We will be heading to Montana the end of the month, and plan on using the oven in-route. We will make a couple of overnight stops. I personally don't like to travel too many hours a day.. Would rather have a fairly short day and settle in before Happy Hour and the Dinner Hour. Have batch cooked and frozen several meals, so for those short overnight stops, warming up our homemade (in the oven) "TV" - frozen dinners is ideal.

I haven't tried it but a frozen pizza might do well in the oven.

The oven works super well. We camp a lot, and cook & bake in the oven just about every night. Make some chocolate chip cookie dough and keep it in the freezer. make sure to get a small cookie sheet. and pizza is a winner. so are baked mac and cheese, baked chicken, and of course, things like chicken pot pie....

Airstream ovens

Our gas oven heated unevenly until we added a baking tile atop the metal heat deflector. We still turn things midway through baking time but the oven is definitely way better than it was. Temperatures stay steady and pretty much calibrated with the knob.

We bake muffins, brownies, casseroles, pizzas, and other things. And yes, we even use our oven for storage when we're not cooking -- it mostly holds baking pans plus a couple of bags of tortilla chips.

If we bought a trailer without one, we'd add a trailer.

We use our oven for storage and will make things in it every once in a while. But about storage, what I don't like about the food cabinets is not being able to see down in there to well, and even though there's plenty of space, the canned food etc is still hard to see what it is.

Our oven is our bread box while on the road. We love stopping at local bakeries along our way, and then we tuck our buys into our bread box oven--no mashing, keeps fresh, good use of the space. ~G

I think I'll use my oven.

This newby is going through the manual trying to figure out things. What? Huh? What do they mean? Why can't I understand this? Am I really that stoopid?
This is getting depressing.

The oven should come in handy....
my head fits perfectly.

Glad your head fits because that will come in handy when lighting your oven! That's the only thing we don't like about our oven (which we use all the time and would not be without)... I have to get down on my hands and knees to light the pilot... And there will come a day when this is far more difficult for me than it is now... I don't know how some folks do it!

We light our oven freq enuf we don't have to eyeball it anymore, just click the lighter and reach back and up - voila! The pilot's burning. But I do tend to leave the oven door open after turning up the oven's burner control, when waiting for the oven burner to light.

Totally understand you, we do a partner thing, he gets done on hands and knees and I attempt to control the knobby thing to get it started. Plan on using our oven quite a bit in the next few weeks. Our plans are a Montana trip and while the BBQ is usually our way to prepare meals, it may be too cold for that. Plus the oven will help heat up the trailer.
