We just purchased our 71 in July. Recalibrated the oven - it was 75 degrees off. Now within 2 degrees.

I wouldn't be without out it. The potential is unlimited. First use after recalibration was an apple crumb pie (frozen) and passed it out to the kids camping next door - they were thrilled (another priceless camping smile).

For "robertsonmd" - found a replacement handle at Post's Trailer Supply here in Columbus. They dug it out of a dusty box in the attic and said they had a few more. Two holes were a perfect fit drilled two more with a 3/16th's bit - solid replacement.

Yumm cornbread....

DO WE USE OUR OVEN!?? You Betícha!

Our first ever standing rib roast prepared for our New Yearís Airstream Dinner.

4.5 hrs. at 200 degrees.
30 min. at 400 to brown.

Rested at 140 internal temp. for 30 mins. before carving.

This is our first use of the oven and it may have been it's first. This 1984 original looks brand new on the inside.

Thanks for the call. I would have drove all the way down just for the smell (and a little taste).

Frozen Pizzas Rule!

Well I've not used the one in my Excella yet. But when I was trying to decide if my family would even want to camp in a travel trailer, I borrowed my dad's "old" 1999 Terry 26 footer and we used the oven daily. Nothing like doing Red Baron pizza's in the oven to feed dear ol' dad and the hungry pack of children

The one in my '77 looks brand new too. So the string of PO's must not have used it much. They certainly didn't clean it up to look new, if the rest of the coach was any indication

How else would I bake Cinnamon rolls to eat while having my morning coffee ? Or biscuits to have with dinner.

I use my oven at least once or twice every trip out.

A hint to anyone who is going to use their oven in an older trailer.

Get an oven thermometer and check the temp to make sure it is close to what the dial says. They can be easily adjusted to get within range. Just an FYI. Mine was off 75 degrees.

We love bread, cheese and wine. We use it everyday we're out.

I can't remember a trip where we didn't use our oven. Besides, it makes a great storage area while traveling and since you have to open it to light it, you can't forget something is in there and catch it on fire. Our oven is original and Julie says it better to cook in and more accurate than our house oven and it's new. We have a couple of nesting dishtubs that fit in the sinks perfectly that ride in the oven while traveling and they're filled with all sorts of small items.

"Now we're cooking with fire, alright!"

I use the 4 burner cook top but have not used the oven. I wanted to but we couldn't get it going. We've only camped several wknds. but since we may go south for a few wks. I plan to make use of it. Also, a PO installed a two shelf rack on the wall the other side of the range, above the foot of the twin bed, it was used for a TV. Our small micro fits well there while we're parked and takes up no precious space. If I had to choose, it would be the LP oven.

Boy, Do I miss my oven from our 2002 Safari. I cooked homemade pizza, meatloafs, cookies, french fries, onion ring, and that's to name just a few. We used it every trip. We now own a 310 MH and all it has is a micro. Want to try and put an oven in place of the micro. Not sure if we can. But we're not ready for that project just yet.

We don't have an oven in our airstream. Wish we did. We do have a combo convection/microwave and use it all the time. (been using a convection oven for 20 years in the house)
