You can have both a zapper and an oven. The main use of the oven is for garlic bread, but contrary to all safety recommendations, it is a good backup if the furnace fails and it is really cold outside and there's no power for an electric heater. Not something I would want to do and plenty of ventilation is a good idea.

We took out one cushion on the gaucho and put a small cabinet there with a microwave and a printer in it. The cabinet top also serves as a place to put things and keep them off the limited countertop space.

What I hate about the oven is that the pilot light is way at the back of the oven. With a flashlight to see the pilot and all too many matches, I can light the pilot while Barb holds down the knob. I don't think it would be easy for one person to do all that, especially when the trailer has been sitting for a while and it takes a lot of time and matches to light the pilot while the propane slowly makes its way to the pilot. Some people use a butane lighter, but I never had any success with one and use wooden matches.

Love the oven in our 1990 AS but age finally took its toll. Hubby is replacing with a new Atwood with a toaster feature & I know I'll use this each time we camp.

Skitique, is the toaster option propane powered? That would be a major advance in technology to rival sliced bread.

For 8 years, I had a camper with no oven. I baked in a Coleman tin oven on top of a Coleman stove. I was excited to get a trailer with an oven. I baked a pizza in it in my backyard the first night it came home.

We definitely wanted the gas oven in the 2016 Serenity 30' we ordered. The microwave will be used for some things that are appropriate applications for a microwave, but we prefer to use a conventional oven for baking/broiling. The convection microwaves we've had in previous coaches were really noisy and we just prefer baking, broiling in a real oven. For us, having both a microwave and a gas oven is the way to go.

I do. I've made muffins for breakfast for my wife. She's baked a turkey (breast) in it for Thanksgiving. I think the oven is more important than the microwave.

No jab intended. I think a propane toaster would be a great thing. Making toast while boondocking is difficult unless I want to take out the generator and set it up just to power the toaster. Easier to make it in the oven or on top of the stove. A propane toaster sounds like something to invent if it hasn't been already.

My wife claims she uses the gas oven all the time when I'm not there.

I tend to believe this, since she never uses it when I am around.
