I traded a classic thirty year old Harley Davidson that I personally restored for my 72 Olverlander. Why? Because I am 58 and have an 8 year old girl. I wanted to create memories for this child. When we go camping it is tradition that we make Cinnamon rolls on Saturday morning. I may be an old Harley Dude (36 years of riding) But I have no regrets trading that for one Saturday morning baking rolls with my sweet girl!

I traded a 30 year old Harley Davidson Electra Glide that I personally restored for my 72 Overlander. I am 58 and I wanted to create memories for my eight year old daughter. When we camp, on Saturday mornings it is our "tradition" to bake cinnamon rolls in the oven. I would not trade one minute of time with Maggie on Saturday mornings for 36 years of biking. I like my oven

Recently took a similar trip with my 14 yo daughter just before school started. Our saturday morning routine is biscuits with eggs cheese and what ever meat we had left over from dinner. Could be pulled pork, pork chop, stake, roast beef, or what ever. You get the idea. We try to see how high we can build the sandwich and stil get it in our mouth. Sort of one of thoes things that mom doesn't allow as it is truly bad manners. This last trip we were coking outside over the fire when we had one of the worst downpours ever. Though we had a tarp over the fire pit the water rushing into the campsite put out the fire from below. We were very glad that we could bring the dinner in the camper and finish it in the oven. We also broke down and put a movie on since there was no going outside. It was cool to watch the Pirates of the Caribbean at worlds end... with our own thunder and lightning adding to the soundtrack. Memories we will both cherish for many years.

At our first ever rally this spring, we wanted to contribute something good to the pot luck dinner, but others had already volunteered many items. I realized I could make garlic bread at home by splitting loaves and adding garlic herb butter, then wrapping in aluminum foil and storing in the fridge until shortly before dinner. I popped them in the oven to warm. They were a big hit. Would I let the lack of an oven stop me from acquiring an airstream that met the rest of my needs? No. Was the oven nice to have? Yes. Also makes a great place to store a cookie sheet, a pizza stone etc. By the way, I was alarmed when I checked on the bread and saw that the flame had gone out. I feared something was wrong. Leave it to an engineer in the dinner crowd who reminded me that the oven had simply reached the set temp and turned off so as to regulate the temp.. Duh.

I have not used mine, very imtimadated on how to light. I plan to give it a shot next month when I go to VT. We do not have gas at home....but heats the same as electric? Glad I just read the comment from Ntex, I would have no clue the gas would shut off.

Chill great memories. That is exactly the reason I bought this thing. Sbb - lighting them is not hard. You turn and push the knob to the pilot position. Then you hold a match near the pilot jet for 30 seconds or so. There is a thermocouple next to it that is a safety mechanism that needs to heat up for a minute or so. If your pilot does not stay lit its probably because the thermocouple is not hot enough. Once the theremocouple ( think a small metal strip) is warm it stays that way as long as the pilot is lit and providing flame. Should it go out the thermocouple cools and shuts the gas off. Once you have the pilot lit, you close the oven door and set the temp to what you want. That's really it. Took me longer to type this than it does for the operation.

Alright, will maybe give it a shot this weekend instead. Now need the cinnamon bun recipe. Still sounds scary to do, but cant be as scary as backing up! .

Also, always , always back up to your, left if you cannot see the trailer in your driver side mirror your doing it the difficult way. And it helps to get out and scope the area prior to backing, don't forget to look up too.

I have always had ovens in my Airstreams (many, many) and continue to want one. So, I ordered my 2014 with an oven. In the past I have not been really impressed with the quality of the ovens, they baked, but often burnt things and were hard to regulate.

I am very happy to report that the oven in my new 20' FC is great. I made a box mix Pumpkin Spice quick bread the other night and it was a hit with the friends I was visiting. Nice even bake, temp control was good. Just like my oven at home.

We use ours every time we go out... Approx. 15 trips per year now while we are still working. Can't live without an oven!

If your baked goods burn in the over, try a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet under your pan. Works wonders!
