Camper Oven

We always cook either on the grill or stove. It is getting cool enough to use the inside oven but I have always been told that it doesn't really do a good job. We are also getting tired of the same old recipes everytime we go out.. Does anybody here have any good camper stove ideas?

I am familiar with putting a stone in the oven to help distribute the heat...

Oh, and let me add, seems like the best use so far for our oven has been transporting our wine bottles.. Works like a charm...

Thanks

Yea, the oven came in ours, we bought it off the lot. We would not have chosen an oven if we had custom ordered it, but I think it's part of the mandatory "customer convenience" package anyway for 2014 and newer.

We just made a pizza in ours last weekend. It worked fine. I can't see us using it more than once a year at most.

We store oven mits and stuff like that in ours.

I'm with you.. We really didn't want one either but had no choice.. It's no big deal really, just thought it would be nice to use an appliance that came with the camper is all.

We've never had an oven. Have had a stove but never used it. All of our cooking is always outdoors over a wood fire. If it's cold out, I'd rather put a coat on and go cook over the campfire than turn the stove on...But that's just us....

For us it's not about saving money. If I was worried about saving money, I'd still be tenting. It's about what's fun and being able to stuff that you don't/can't do at home. I love cooking breakfast over the fire while drinking my coffee. At night we light a fire anyway so why not use it to cook? We used to use a tripod but now I have one of these. Although we would use the stove top too if I could take it outside like you can with a PUP.
