I use the oven in my sticks and bricks home as a cabinet to store some cookware, etc. just because it's in a trailer doesn't mean the space has to go unused.

Greenbean, see you in July.... ummmmm fresh baked cookies!

I have a 17, and do most of my cooking outside on a Coleman combined 1 burner stove & grill. I also carry a Crusinart toaster oven (a TOB155). This is large enough to cook a 12" pizza, roast a chicken; I even have cooked pies in it. While I can only use it when I have hookups, it does provide the equivalent of a built in oven with the advantage that you can use it outdoors & avoid heating up the trailer.

Congrats on your new trailer.
We are at this point dreaming of getting one.
About cooking and oven it depend of the type of cooking you like to do.

For us in our Bigfoot we removed the oven put in a two shelves and extended the conter with a cutting board. We also put in a quick connect for gaz on the conter.
For cooking we use a induction plate and a gaz stove, that can both be used inside and outside (quick connect for gaz outside to) We also have for outside our little wood BBQ.
If our dream comes thru and we do get the Escape... We would order ours with out the hood and the gaz burner. Instead of the burner we would extended the conter
and order a quick connect.
A other point of view

For those who have eliminated the stove hood (I find the fans to be useless and noisy) do you lack light in that area since the hood usually has a light also?

In our 15b we eliminated the range hood and replaced it with two lights--one over the sink and one over the burners. Plenty of light.

In our 15 A, sans the range hood, we also have two lights, one above the sink and the other above the stove. We also installed the optional opening window above the sink which allows the natural light in!
