I asked that question of ETI because we've seen them listed in several Sprinter motorhomes (a route we've decided not to go). I got the following response from Krista:

"You are correct in that we do not offer a convection/microwave oven option. The measurements of the 2016 model 5.0TA microwave cabinet is 18w x 11 h x 22d. However this may change slightly with the new model... The issue with a convection/microwave oven is that the amount of heat it puts off in an enclosed cabinet can be dangerous. It is not recommended."

One would have to do their homework and make the addition on their own.

Correction - microwave convection, not convention

We are in Chilliwack working with ETI on it as I post this. Will know more tomorrow we hope. Keeping fingers crossed on getting a Dometic to fit but may have other options with a Mauve or a Contoure.

We have both types of ovens in our kitchen but I'd like to get rid of the microwave for health concerns. My wife says otherwise.
We picked up a small stainless toaster/convection oven for our current camper and the thought is to transfer it to an Escape in the future. That's unless ETI makes the c/m combo an option...

Weight: 52.2 lbs.
Dimensions: Microwave itself is 11 1/2"H x 21 1/2"W x 16"D.
Baffles add an additional 5.5" to the height if installed into a cabinet.

Wishing you good luck on this. Camping World lists a Dometic with the following info:

Weight: 52.2 lbs.
Dimensions: Microwave itself is 11 1/2"H x 21 1/2"W x 16"D.
Baffles add an additional 5.5" to the height if installed into a cabinet.

You probably will lose a little storage space but I think it would be worth it.

We have a Cuisinart Microwave Convection oven at home. Since it has a heating element, it can bake, roast and brown. But, that also means it's not to be installed in an enclosed space. Hot air exhausts out the back. No way I'd put it in an enclosed wooden cabinet in our trailer.

Very good point except that the ones made for RVs vent out the front. One definitely would not want to put in a "home" model in an RV. Instructions for them show how to box them and the clearances required.

I see. Yes, venting out the front would make a difference, provided the sides, top and back don't get too hot. I wonder though how much heat it would put into the trailer interior?

The heat isn't bad - hardly noticeable in our Casita although we bake at 320 or below as a precaution because of the setup. 320 works great for brownies and chocolate chip cookies.
