Convert a Seneca cooktop to oven?

Hey Guys and Gals,
My wife want a regular oven in addition to the convection. Our Seneca just has a 3 burner cooktop with storage drawers below. Has anyone converted to a conventional oven/range eliminating the drawers? Is does not look like a big deal at first glance but don't want to open a can of worms. Thanks!

I was told by the dealer that it isn't really a big deal to swap out. We were looking at a unit and just a cook top was a deal breaker for her. She wants to bake lasagna and cookies while driving in a "real" oven.

As was said should be real easy. All you should need to do is remove the burner top and the top drawer. When we had our 08 we did just the opposite, added the convection over and had the oven removed and the drawer installed.

What model oven? It looks like it's a standard 22".

Thought is was an ATWOOD 21", but they may have changed 2012 and up.

Just left it at the dealer for a recall and some warranty work. They are giving me a price on the conversion. Looks like both drawers get removed plus a little woodwork.

Atwood 52786. $975.00 installed at the dealer. I can buy the unit for $499.00. Looks like I may just tackle this install myself.

And to think I went the other way, I pulled the oven out and moved the micro wave down and use the upper space for pantry stuff. I have 2 butane burners that I use both inside and for outside use.

I bought a used cabinet door and took out the center panel, stained it and inserted a piece of ribbed glass to match the cabinets on the other side of my Hybrid. That microwave took up a lot of real estate and seeing that we don't use propane and the wave was to high in the first place this made it easier for us. If I ever want just the cooktop I can lower the wave about 2" and the cooktop will slip right in.
