I took the stove out of my Scamp and when I had it out on the driveway my wife asked, "What is that?"

Cooking in an RV

We have bought 4 used RVs. Three of them had never had their kitchen stove used. We use our stove virtually every day, primarily for breakfast. Our typical breakfast is one egg and one strip of bacon each.

Two of RV's came with built in microwaves. We typically use them for reheating leftovers or making oatmeal. The two smaller rigs, 16 foot trailers, came with small counter microwaves. We got rid of both microwaves finding them not space worthy since anything we could do in a microwave we could do on the stove top.

As to meals beyond breakfast we're typically out exploring during the day. We either carry a lunch for the trail or eat out. WE go to Newfoundland every other year for two months. Their when scouting around it can be difficult to find any where to eat when off the beaten track.

Suppers are usually eaten at home however we always seek interesting local places to eat. This can happen at lunch or supper. If we have a big lunch, we eat lightly in the evening.

Needless to say this eating life style was a change for us and between us over our 20 years on the road we've lost over 120 lbs between us and still counting.

I still do all my cooking in the trailer. But in this heat, lunch and often dinner donít require any cooking.

I very, very rarely fry anything. I donít want splatter, and itís not healthy anyway. When I do use a frying pan, itís on low heat.

I really like cooking and I often cook right inside my rv. I'm using oven and stove. You can refer in here: I also buy a new one in that. This simple appliance will open up a lot of different eating options, thus making your RV trip all the more enjoyable.

Apparently she has never seen you use the stove or she would have known

I have made coffee on the stove. Cooked if you count a toaster. Anything I can cook on the stove in the camper I can make outside on the Coleman stove. If we have AC power there is the hot plate, or small electric skillet.

More room outside. Less smelling up the camper, and in the summer who needs to make the inside all hot? Or cook in the heat?

Those with AC and power can disregard that heat factor, in fact inside might be more comfortable but I don't have AC and often camp where there isn't power so that is another factor that drives me outside.

Two burner Coleman + one burner butane/propane stove. Covers everything I could think of to do that isn't done over a fire.
