Oven or no oven?

In my quest for the right camper, I came across another make/model that does not have an oven. Question - how many of you use your oven or not and for those that do, how often? The sales guy is telling me most people use it for storage which I cant believe. Hoping this group can shed some light for me.

Last MH I had I did exactly that. Gutted it and used it for bread storage. Of the three MHs I've had, I've never used the oven.

Pot storage in our rig

Good Day jfpotts,

Your salesman has the right of it in our mobile home. We would rather have additional storage then the oven in our trailer. Our last two rigs have had ovens and we have used them collectively... twice, in the last three years. They are small and challenging to cook in at best. I think we made garlic bread both times we used it and burnt the bread on one side each time.

We used to bake biscuits for breakfast when camping. The last 5+ years cannot remember using it. We have always stored our cast iron skillet in our oven but had to change that with the new Jay Flight as on our first trip with it the skillet ended up out on the floor. Skillet is now in the under the table seating storage area. Even though I haven't used the oven in a long time, still wanted one.....just in case!

We used our oven in our 197 quite often. We pre-make lasagna and freeze in Glad ovenware. The Glad ovenware fits perfectly in the Atwood RV oven.
Having an oven was a requirement when shopping for a new rig, which we picked up last weekend.

Well, we don't have an oven in our TT, and it was not something we went shopping for. But we have been known to bake cookies in our oven in previous TT's We found it took the chill off of the TT before we put kids to bed and then we didn't need the furnace overnight. To be honest, we would probably make more use of an oven than we do of the microwave!

We are people who actually cook in our TT though. We use our two little burners nearly everyday and we don't bring along a regular Coleman stove anymore at all.

Use ours probably weekly.. cooking bread, cookies, dinner etc...would not want one without it. But we tend to cook at home a lot also.. Use our brick and mortar one probably 3 days a week.

Ours makes a really nice wine bottle storage rack.

We use our oven all the time. Wouldn't be without it. It is a nice place to put some pans in during travel as well, so your salesman is not wrong there
