Yes, a very interesting thread, especially for those who LOVE to cook AND eat! We have no oven in our Scamp 13, so no baking unless I put to use what I've learned from the marvelous dutch oven chefs here! The good news is ... since we hit the road over 2 years ago, I've lost 42 lbs and Dave has lost weight also. The key - not being able to pop in a batch of chocolate chip cookies or cinnamon rolls whenever we feel like it. Not having baked stuff also makes the occasional pie and/or ice cream stop a big treat.

Just our experience - YMMV. Happy camping! L 'n D

We have the oven in our trillium and have used it about 3 times in 5 years. it creates excess heat
in the summer, but does help a bit in the winter, but I prefer the furnace which I know vents outside.
Can anyone tell me how to light the heater ? I have a Trav'ler Duette unit- oven/heater/cooktop. I do not know how to light the heater. All the instructions are gone except " Turn on the back right burner for two minutes..." the rest I cannot read. Any help would be greatly appreciated. In a 1980 Scamp 13' unit.

Wow Thanks Donna, this is invaluable info, I have the Duette combo Range Heater in my Amerigo 16'. The hinges to the oven door seem to be loose..has anyone had any luck with tightening the door up? I probably need new hinges..:-(

We had an oven in our pop-up and I rarely used it. I found the propane RV oven to be very different than baking with a standard gas or electric oven.

When we camp with our almost-ours egg I might bring my Breville Smart Oven if we're going to have electricity.

And there were some folks who thot my wife & I were a tad "strange' for liking the idea that our B/F 21 had the oven removed and a large built-in microwave installed in it s place!

We had our Boler 17 for about 10-12 years an never once lit the oven - I can say that I have NO CLUE how to light it, even we had wanted to! It got used as storage for bread, buns etc.

We use our oven every time we go out camping. Sometimes friends that we camp with that don't have ovens even use our oven. We still enjoy fresh baked breads, etc. when it is too rainy for a campfire and a dutch oven. I would rather give up my micro-wave it if was choice between the two appliances. I love my oven!

thats what i'm getting for an outside stove and oven. bit pricy,,,but it should last the rest of my life.
meanwhile in our teardrop camper, i use a coleman stove and a coleman stove top oven. it folds up flat for storage and works surprisingly well .

another option for campfire cooking is a reflector oven. my boyscouts were pretty impressed when i cooked a frozen pizza on a camp out using a cardboard box and some tinfoil.
