My "go to" place for cooking in a trailer is The Boat Galley. Baking on a Boat. You may find this thread on baking to be of interest.

I'd put some paper towel between that pot and what looks like a non-stick fry pan.
I picked up some cheap reusable grocery bags and put my non-stick pans in their individual bags.

My last response on this thread mentioned The Boat Galley. In her website she talks about baking on the stovetop using an Omnia Oven. It's fascinating to read about all the things you can bake including this pizza pull-apart bread. Actually, it looks like they used a conventional oven with a bundt cake mold. https://youtu.be/8EyZc6rSbnM

Come to think of it, I wonder if we could jury-rig a DIY Omnia Oven using a bundt pan, stovetop ring and a pot lid? It's worth a try.

What do you know, a clever backpacker has already come up with a lightweight DIY Omnia oven! See it at https://j2tilghman.wordpress.com/201...kpacking-oven/.

"This past weekend I field-tested my knockoff of the Omnia oven, also known as a wonder pot. I had tried this setup at home on my kitchen stove, but I wanted to try it outdoors, too, so I took it on the canoe trip to find out how it would perform. It worked great, in my humble opinion.
This lightweight backpacking oven consists of a heat diffuser (with removable handle from Harold Import Company, also known as a flame tamer, about $7), an aluminum ring mold (which I picked up at a local thrift store for $2), and a round foil pan (three for $1 at Dollar Tree, although you could probably get one for free if you save a take-out container)."

The problem with a flat frying pan would be getting enough heat on the sides and top. With the DO and charcoal you are able to heat the lid as well as the bottom of the pot (which effectively heats the sides) but with a traditional frying pan (even with a top) if you can't add heat to the top or retain heat in it you probably can't bake more than flatbreads.

I'm delighted to read about your on the road baking accomplishments. I, too, have wondered about baking (for two) while on the road. So far, I've been very pleased with purchasing 3 freshly baked cookies for 99 cents at the AM/PM stores at ARCO gas stations along the road. There is nothing like the smell of "trailer-baked" goods, though.

Right now it's raining in California...perfect weather for baking. I'm making pumpkin cookies and DH is making Sachertorte. Yummmmmm.
Yes, it's (was) raining in my neck of California too. I'd love a freshly baked cookie at the moment, but am busy sneezing and blowing my nose. Maybe the DH will bring me some soup...

Coleman camp oven

We use ours on a 2 burner stove and have fixed cornbread, muffins, cookies, and casseroles in it. To help keep the heat distributed evenly, I place a small soapstone tile in the bottom. It retains the heat and I turn off the propane a little early to let the soapstone finish things out. Also, a key to success is to refrain from opening the door to peek in very often, and keep pans 9" in diameter max. I have found the Nordicware set for toaster ovens useful as well as some vintage Pyrex.
We also cook with a Dutch Oven, but use our Volcano grill for that with the domed lid. If you aren't familiar with it, it has 3 fuel options (charcoal, propane, wood) which takes care of most camping scenarios for us.

Cook centre a new coleman bake oven
Score!
This is a 1965 stove found on a shelf in my in-laws basement that they had used for one week and then packed it away. The oven was a yard sale find still in the original box. The stand was in a pile marked "free stuff" at the end of a driveway.
Oh, the smell of fresh bread wafting through camp in the morning.

Awesome outdoor kitchen!

Thanks for posting your pictures! I have been keeping my utensils in a coffee can but your storage box is so amazing that I think my hubby may have to make me one! Plus an awesome score on that Coleman oven!

Coleman Oven

I bought a new Coleman folding oven, last year, on Amazon. It works great. When baking muffins I just place a double thickness of Aluminium foil below the pan. Keeps the bottom of the muffins from getting too dark. The only challenge is regulating the flame manually to maintain the proper temp. (375 degrees I think!)

I've just used my folding oven once, at the rally in Quincy. It's clear that what you recommend is wise... when I maintained the required temp for the recommended time, the corn muffins were quite burnt on the bottom. Quite a *fail* for the potluck! I also think some kind of insulating wrap or blanket (fireproof) over the top of the oven would help retain the existing heat so less heat from below is required to maintain temp.

Holding heat in Coleman oven

On a couple of chilly mornings in Colorado, I tossed a silicone baking sheet on top of the oven to hold heat in along with my soapstone in the bottom to disseminate lower heat. Worked great for biscuits, and I usually turn off the heat early and let the soapstone heat finish out the baking. It took care of my tendency to burn the bottoms! I also use an infrared temperature gun to check the oven, my thermometer is close but not perfect. I think you could wrap the sides with foil to help, too, I just never have done so yet.

James, that's a great looking setup you have. How does the table attach to the trailer?

If that stove is a Coleman, it may be older than you think. My expertise here, especially if it's possibly Canadian in origin, is limited but I've only seen that round tank on earlier models. If you want more info, these folks could probably provide it quickly if you posted the pic in the "Just bull" section. Coleman Collectors Forum

Apologies for the hijack - Al

Table rail and electrical outlet came with the Boler to allow you to cook outdoors. With a permanent bed we added the outside access. The opening is large enough to pack away the stove.
My interest is piqued. I'm still checking out the stove.
