I just think all you folks are just saying that you enjoy using your ovens, or suggesting that you actually even do supposedly use them, just to make me feel bad for removing mine this spring .

I'm just trying to remember the last time we even used the oven in the house . If Donna knows I said that I'll be dead meat. Deader than any meat that's ever hit our oven.

It has been my feeling that when we start to camp more frequently in the fall/early spring time that we will acquire a portable oven if we feel we will need one and set it up under the awning as we do the BBQ right now. We use our stove top but the primary cooking is done on the barbie. For some reason it seems that I'm the cook the majority of the time when we go camping - the reverse of when we are at home. (I'd thought of suggesting that when at home it's whoever the chef is at whatever restaurant we hit that day but again, Donna would kill me, so I'm not going to say that ).

When I am out camping it seems almost like sinning cooking inside the trailer. I do enjoy the convenience of the nuker when power is available for reheating things and making the buns I bought at the grocery store smell and taste like they just came out of the oven . Don't you find the oven in the trailers to be kind of small for any kind of reasonable sized meal? One look and I never bothered to even attempt to cook in it. (now I'm in trouble).

So it would appear that there's quite a sampling of those who do, and those who don't. To those of you who really truly do use your oven I look forward to camping next to you somewhere so when those hot buns come out of the oven you'll want me to "sample" several of them to prove you are right. To those of you who, like us do not use their trailer oven - could you please make sure there's space between you and the first group for me to fit my trailer in?

Thanks,
Barry

Hi Barry,

I can agree with you that a 'nuker' comes in handy, as well as the stove top and a toaster oven in our a/s..I'd like to relax and make it easy when we're at the campgrounds..we both do get into the cooking mood where we bake, and roast and broil in the '64 oven that would you believe, still works!!!..any foods that are cooking inside the oven does warm up the trailer, and comes in handy when it's cold outside and you can't use the site's bbque...some of the campgrounds we stayed at on our recent trip in Helena, Montana, Moses Lake, Washington, Oakridge, Oregon, Arco, Idaho, and Winnemucca, Nevada did not allow bbques, probably because of the fire season..so the oven can come in handy..

Earth to Martin...

It's a fridge.

Oh, I was sooo hoping you had installed a dishwasher.
What was I thinking? My wife is laughing (a lot)
Okay, just look the other way. Don't pay him any attention
I'm going back out and play with the grill.

Martin, don't worry, I thought the appliance on the right was a dishwasher and the one on the left was the fridge. Matter of fact, my first reaction was: Oh my god, it's a dishwasher!

You, my friend, are a man of great character. Not many would be so honest.
You get karma today!
Next time I will put my brain in gear before I start typing.

Martin, I've learned to laugh at myself as I creep up to the age of 57. I think I have reached "Sometimers" and am headed for, what do they call it?

I definitely need new glasses. I too thought it was a dishwasher. Of course I also thought they had really baked those cookies in the oven until I realized that they just HAD to be store bought and stuck on a tray to make those of us ovenless streamers jealous. No one can make cookies at home that look that perfect. It was a great try, though. Had me for a moment. I don't see Dometic anywhere on that "refer" though. Is that a whirlpool decal I just about can make out?

Craig & Barry,
It is not easy to join the "Move Over Oven" club (MOO) but you guys are almost there. The last intiation test is to read post #38 and think of a new word that rhymes with oven. Good luck and try to stay awake.

em.

It would seem to me that only those who are part of a coven would truly need to have an oven.

How'd I do?

Hi, my eyes aren't getting any better, either, but at least I knew it wasn't a dish washer, because that's me.

Dishwasher challenged

Your enthusiasm for the oven club is humbling
Others might follow. Hopefully with a bit less bumbling.
Coven was the key.
But now that the secret is out;
underground is where we need to be.

Those are real baked cookies actually. It's a Dometic fridge... maybe should call it a freezer though since it freezes the carrots...

I'm a newbie and our 'new' AS is still hooked to our pickup since we arrived home at 1am...and up at 5am with the puppy. In our last AS ('73 Land Yacht), I baked every trip we took. Can't wait to take our new 'baby' out and baking will be part of her life...ahhh...the aromas.

I rarely fry anything inside, hate the mess, so we have a coleman that we keep on the tailgate of the pick up. I kinda like cooking outside too, makes me feel young. LOL! (The days of tents and young children and Oregon rain).

We were camping this week, I had fresh baked oatmeal cookies - twice. Yum! We use the oven much more than we did the Microwave in our last trailer. Ideally I would have both, but the 21' is a little small.

Believe it or not, that little old stovetop Ovenette works well. As for the skillet, nothing but an old Griswold cast iron will do.
Well Sugarfoot...I was so inspired by your ovenette picture, I pick one up on Ebay. Paid $12.50 for it. Can't wait to try it on my next adventure!
