I see on Ebay there are quite a few used electric Ovenettes listed. Might work ok if you have electricity, but then, why not just a toaster oven?

I think I'll get a Coleman eventually, use it on the portable propane stove in the Clam shelter, also known as the "summer kitchen".

This our Coleman oven in action a couple of weeks ago. We use unglazed clay tiles on the grate as a pizza stone. The whole oven folds down and fits in the box shown on the bench.

Overall it works very well but, as noted above, I would not even think of using it inside the trailer (notice the red glow at the bottom of the oven).

It is fun to come across a great vintage find like these little ovens. All the thrills rewards of treasure hunting and collecting

But it is also fun to DIY your own items.
There are lots of remote read thermometer units around for sensing oven temperature. The heat control is done with a vent that has a way to reduce or enlarge the amount of air that comes through. A very basic one is easy to make. Drill a hole in the lid. Cut a metal disc or a silicone rubber disc larger in diameter than the hole. At one edge of that disc put a small hole for a fastener to go through the lid. To let more heat out just rotate the disc so the opening is larger and to increase the temperature rotate the disc to close it. Just push on the edge of the disc with a spoon to move it back and forth, no need to get fancy and put on a handle.
