Warms the trailer up even more on a nice day. Funny no one mentioned this aspect of an oven. Summertime and the trailer is HOT when oven is operating, heck we even cook outdoors as much as possible on warm evenings. Micro too? we have neither and don't miss at all. a rusty stove top toaster is it. someone should make a stainless model.

Why is your oven rusty ? Ours is used a lot but it is kept clean after it cools down . In fact our previous ovens were just about new looking too. I think you wouldn't want to cook inside if it is hot . Don't at home either . But if we can use Ac then it doesn't matter . Have microwave at home and it is used daily . Found microwave if have hookups used the same . Each to there own . We love the oven and microwave too . Pat

Some folks use the oven and like them, some get it and never use it. If your husband wants the oven, get the oven. If you find you don't use it it makes a dandy bread box.

we do NOT have an oven or microwave. The inexpensive stove-top toaster is all we have oven-wise. They're made of steel and eventually rust, especially if you live at the beach.

we do occasionally use a DO (Dutch Oven) when the need arises. Mostly desserts!

Still don't get the rust issue . Just saying not our experience . Our camper previous which was made in Oxnard (beach) Oven still looked new when we sold her . It was a 1992 which made it 21 years old when we sold her . Because I love the ocean that is where the camper spent most of her time . My little motorhome was 1979 was 24 years old and stove looked like new . Motorhome also spent most of her time at beach . My oven is almost 3 years right now and still looks new .A long time ago had the little stove top toaster and they do rust . Our ovens never have . Pat

Reread the post. It says a stove top toaster got rusty, not an oven.

Whether or not to get the oven was one of my (our) hardest decisions. We ended up getting it and have been very glad of it. It's not big enough to roast a turkey, but it does biscuits, brownies, corn bread, and pumpkin pie Very Well. Initially it seemed to burn a little bit cooler than advertised (adjusted "temp" by about 25 degrees); we change out our propane regulator before our last outing and I think it cured the problem.

One reason I went for it is the way it's installed, very near the galley wall, maximizing the other side of the counter top. Not an inexpensive option, but for us, no regrets. YMMV
