Considering Removal of Oven

Our oven works, but we never use it. Anyone removed their oven and built a cabinet or something else there?
I don't want to discard it, option to keep originality but a cabinet with shelves and door could be removable. I wold put our Sharp small microwave in there as well.
Storage in the kitchen is always good

lets see what you did

Mine has never been used by the PO or my self. I use mine for storing heavy cast iron cookware.

Have you read the thread about why people like their ovens?

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f484...ven-28619.html

We specifically bought our FC20 because it had an oven.

Roast chicken, biscuits, pizza, real bread and muffins from scratch. Heat benefits while baking in cold weather.

The list goes on . . .

Can't imagine traveling without a real oven.

Good luck!

Peter

PS -- Similar to Michael we store some cookware in the oven while on the road.

I liked that I got the original oven! Reinstalled it And I use it all the time. Just a matter of how you like to cook.
Sure comes in handy for the CanOpener!

We just use the oven itself for storage.

When I restored our 64 Globetrotter, I replaced the stove with a microwave and toaster oven. See attached pic.

During 30 years camping in our '67 we used the oven only for storage. I just now removed and replaced it with a shelf for a small microwave and 3 drawers under it. The additional storage enables the wife to bring her crock pot and we have more counter space.

If your intent is to keep the originality of the trailer then you are right to save the oven. We use our oven on every trip if for nothing more than frozen cinnamon rolls. I'm sure a microwave would fit in the spot.

my microwave is small so it would fit. I guess I will tackle this job next warm weather spell we get.

Oven / Microwave

We put a small microwave in the oven so it looks the same on the outside. We don't use it a lot but it sure is handy. We open the door, pull out the shelf a bit and cook. I keep the sink covers underneath the shelf.
Because of the excessive heat coming out above the oven/below counter, my husband also pulled the oven out, insulated (reflectix) the area, added a better exhaust fan for refrigerator and it works fine. This is on a 1969/short refrigerator.
The aforementioned oven cooking sounds delicious but just couldn't tolerate the heat in the Airstream unless it was cool enough outside.

If you don't use the oven get rid of it. It's your trailer so make it so its best for you, why would you do, or not do, something for what somebody else "might" want?
Are you planing on selling it, or enjoying it?

The PO replaced the oven with a microwave when he restored our 66 Safari. It looks nice, but my wife and I like to cook and have considered a small microwave-convection oven combination if we can find one to fit the space. It might be a simple solution.

Google "camp oven" an option that might be perfect for those who rarely use an oven, but might want one for rallies etc. I have the convection/microwave which is perfect for me... but I still use the instruction cheat sheet for convection cooking.

I am presently debating on a stove or microwave/convection option. How well does the convection part work for baking?

We have an oven and use it all the time especially while try campaign. A microwave isn't much good if you don't have any juice.

The convection microwave combo is a good idea.
We don't dry camp so power is not an issue.
