Where to put the microwave?

Picking up our 21 foot on Nov 9th and working on our option list. We decided to get the the 3 burner stove with lid and to eliminate the oven, I'll get a toaster oven instead. I see there are a couple of options as to where to install the microwave, under the stove being one. All opinions are welcome. Thanks

With the toaster oven, why get a microwave. The space where the microwave goes becomes a nice sized food pantry, that is what we did in our 21' Escape.

I put my toaster oven in the cabinet under the stove top and put it on the counter when I'm using it. It is rather a space hog, but I don't use it all the time so that's okay. I don't see any reason to have a microwave on top of that. I figure if I need to reheat anything it can go in a pan on the stove or in the toaster oven. Gee, kind of what was done before microwaves became so popular!

The cabinet where the microwave is usually located (when installed by ETI) is where I now stash my collection of cat-themed kitchen towels, my tote bag of things for when I'm driving and my purse (which ain't small; yes, it has cats on it). And whatever else I decide to wad in there while camping. It holds lots of stuff!

Oh, I also find the two burner stove to be enough for me. I usually only use one burner, but have used both at the same time a few times. How often do you use 3 burners at once at home? I did once over 6 years ago.

Thanks for the response. Can't see $600 for the oven when I rarely use it. Went 25 years without a microwave and recently purchased one. I now use it all the time mostly for reheating. It is nice not to have to clean pots and pans for left overs. However, cabinet space is premium space for storage and I do use an Instant pot several times a week will require a cabinet for storage.

Can't do without a toaster either, maybe toaster without the oven added.

As far as 3 burners, I had one in the Casita and loved it.

But for the sake of space may end up with a toaster oven and no microwave or oven.
