Camp Chef stove and oven inside Scamp?

Anyone else seen one of these and wondered if it could be vented to the outside to be installed in their fiberglass rv?
I would love to have an oven and they are $169 at Cosco.

I installed one in my last 2 boats. They work great! Talked about them on some boat forums and for the price they cant be beat! If it fits I say buy one. They also offer a model with 1 burner and a grill...but dont know if I would want to grill inside lol.

I have installed one in my Boler. The stove is well insulated with exterior temperatures on the sides and back not getting very hot, I left a 1" air gap on the sides and a 3" air gap on the back. The front and the door do get hot so make sure these have good air circulation.

Good to know others have tried them. There are warnings on the box saying not to be used indoors. Did you find a way to vent the oven outdoors or do you just keep the windows open? By the way Ian, that is one fine looking camper in the pic.

My m-i-l gave us an electric toaster/over with 2 burners on top.

Not in the same class, but similar idea.

Any and all open flame appliances come with the warning not to be used indoors. Even your gas range at home says to use in well ventalated area.
The burners on this stove are no different than the original stove used in the Boler, just use common sense, have a window open and do not leave running at night.

I have one and yet to use it. They are not like a Mr Buddy (heater) which is like 99.8 percent burn off so I am not sure if I would use it inside myself. But if we don't hear back from you we will know not to. I seen where a guy uses it to cook in his house next to a open window but... Besides we don't use all of our brain cells anyway, right? Even a can of beer eats away at our egg head cells..
Just be careful if your going ahead and use it.

I wouldn't use anything that isn't vented to the outside without a window or door open for ventilation purposes. Obviously if you start feeling tired shut it off and go outside. I used on my last 2 boats and was very satisfied with it.

I ask because our trailers' regulators are typically 11wc and many outdoor-type appliances have different pressure requirements, or so I've been told.

Carl; how do you like that electric oven with cooktop? It got terrible reviews on Amazon, so we looked at a similar one made by Avanti which got great reviews on one site, and bad reviews on another, so it's impossible to decide which is best.

I imagine we have all used gas range tops which aren't vented other than a range hood. I'm just not sure about the oven which I'm guessing would give off more exhaust. The other thing is it may not be quite as obvious if I forget to turn it off. I saw a rectangular opening where I think exhaust exits the oven and was thinking I could run a duct to the wall chimney for the furnace since I don't have have a furnace.

Interesting. I just looked at the specs for the Camp Chef it has two 7500 BTU stovetop burners and a 3000 BTU oven burner. I was way off in assuming the oven would put out more exhaust than the burners, 15000 BTU both burners to 3000 oven. So unless I am wrong, the biggest worry would be accidentally leaving the oven on.

There's nothing special about a Mr Buddy; that heater has an open and imperfect flame, too.
Shawn, I guess you don't use any stove or oven inside - including the built-in ones which come in RVs - because they all burn about the same.

No, it is portable and runs from a common one-pound disposable cylinder screwed directly into it.

True, permanently installed appliances for interior use run on propane at low pressure (yes, about 11" water column) from the trailer's regulator; like most portable appliances this one includes its own regulator which takes in propane at the much higher tank pressure (actual pressure depends on temperature).

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I have mine connected to the main gas supply for the Boler (20 lb tank on tongue with 11 wc regulator) I checked the specifications for the Camp Chef and the supplied regulator was listed as 11 wc. It works great with no issues.

The oven is fiddly to regulate, the burner is not on a thermostat so you need to adjust the flame to control temp. If you are not careful the oven will be at 400 deg. But it works great for morning muffins and pizza

Just remember when using any open flame appliance inside make sure a window is open and never leave it unattended.
