I think we will go with the oven on our 21. Cookies and brownies just sounds good to me. What are the actual interior dimensions?

We enquired about installing an SMEV CU43410730000US oven and stove that got a rave review in the March, 2015 Trailer Life. [Our trailer was finished in late July, 2015.] Reace said no.

That could have been for any number of reasons, including the SMEV unit being vaporware. It was allegedly sold by Dometic, but I couldn't find it on their website, or by calling into Dometic.

That said, we've used the standard oven a number of times. Lasagna, bread, and brownies have all baked fine. So far, it has been large enough for the two of us.

But the times are a-changing, especially at Escape. Doesn't hurt to check with them on any change you might like.

Total interior dimensions of the oven are:

5.75" high, 15" wide, and 14.5" deep.

Usable is somewhat smaller, to allow heat to reach the sides and top of the bakee.

I am also interested in the newer style ovens. I like the following two because they provide gas oven, gas cooktop burners, and glass cover that is flush with the countertop . I hope there will be some way to accommodate the slightly larger size.

Thetford's "Spinflow Triplex" :
Spinflo Triplex | Products | Thetford

And

Dometic's "CU-434 Stainless-Steel Range":

It was allegedly sold by Dometic, but I couldn't find it on their website, or by calling into Dometic.
That's an ongoing challenge with Dometic: they sell a different selection of products in each market, what they list for a given market is not the same as what they actually sell. SMEV was acquired by Dometic, possibly causing more confusion.

I want the oven, but hubby not so interested in it. He wants to know if it will help with resale of the trailer and then he is for it. What do you think, will it help?

Just my opinion of course butI had the oven in our last trailer, bought it for resale value... I do believe made absolutely no difference in the price I asked, or got, don't recall it coming up in the conversation at all. It's possible you may lose some buyers though if they are specifically looking for a trailer with an oven.
