Oven?

My wife and I have just ordered a new 19 foot Escape and are looking forward to delivery. It is the perfect size for us. The only pondering was over the oven of all things. We have had one in a previous trailer but is the loss of storage space worth it in the 19 foot. Any suggestions.

Since you have had a trailer before, you know how you like to camp. Therefore, ask yourselves what you used the oven for in the last trailer? If you cooked in it, you might want another. If you mostly used it as another storage spot, a cabinet might work better.

Smile Re:oven

Thanks.. We did not use the oven very much.. Perhaps a toaster oven will suffice. Thanks.

Or a BBQ.

We (really just me) angst-ed over the oven choice. We ended up not getting it and I continued to angst until I realized that the oven did not really have any more functional baking space than a toaster oven, which we then promptly went out and bought.

Of course the toaster oven is only usable when hooked up to shore power, but it works really really well. We set it up on a little table outside in our screen room, and plug it into the external outlet. We're now really happy not to have opted for the built in oven, but do know others who use theirs all the time.

Used the one in a previous trailer twice in 10 years. There are so many other options for cooking, and even baking, I would not want one. As you mentioned, the storage for us was more important. You can get way more in the space it takes up, than you can in the oven compartment.

We also do little cooking inside, preferring to keep the heat and odours outside, while we sit and enjoy the 'living room' space.

If you are one who really likes fresh baked stuff, it might be good for you.

If you want to camp without hookups, the oven is useful and I store my pans inside.

We didn't have the oven in our previous trailer but decided to go with it in the 21' so we would have the option of baking cookies etc. Compared to the Casita we will have so much more storage we thought it would be nice to have

When I "show" the new 21' BlackJack, I always make a point of opening the refer and the oven together to show that there is still room between, a lot of oohs and aahhs when demonstrated.

As an alternative to an electric toaster oven, Camp Chef and Coleman both make stand alone propane ovens and Camp Chef also makes an oven/camp stove combination. I have the Camp Chef combo and find it is useful.
