Upgrade/replace stove/oven

We are looking to replace the 17" Atwood Wedgewood combo as the oven is very small. Any suggestions?

Interesting Idea. All the RV stoves/ovens appear to be really small. We have just learned how to deal with it.

They do make a 21", I replaced the cooktop-only unit my Seneca originally came with utilizing a full Atwood range. I did this so we could have a real oven, I never had good baking success with the convection microwave. Plus when putting together a meal I frequently needed to be baking and microwaving simultaneously, and you can't do that with just the convection microwave!

Be advised, the oven cavity on a 21" is not any deeper or wider than a 17" model, just taller. I had room, so I went with the 21".

Years of RV oven experience has taught me a few things I will pass on. When we are setting up camp and expect to bake, out come the unglazed ceramic tiles and they are laid in the bottom of the oven to even out the heat. Just remember to store them (when cool) before you hit the road again or they will beat up the inside of the oven! I also tested my oven with an electronic oven thermometer and found out the temperature was about 25 degrees cooler than the knob setting. So I now know just to bump it up 25 degrees before I start. Plus we always let the oven preheat for at least 15 minutes to get the temps evened out. And Air-Bake pans are your good friend to prevent burning the bottoms. I also think the 21" oven helps being taller, the rack is further from the direct heat so it cooks more evenly than my prior RV's 17" oven.

Burner rack option on Atwood site seems interesting, a little more beef and styling.

Great info - do you have a picture or a source for the unglazed ceramic tiles?

I would love to put one of these in - I assume I could put a pot of water or two on it if needed - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0195MZHBK...=3R3BVXLII5MDJ
