RV Range with our without oven


SWharton

Recommended Posts

We are looking into an new RV and I need an opinion.

 

We do not use our oven, too hard to light. We do use a countertop oven(can hold a 9x9) and our microwave.

 

The new rig has a microwave/convection oven(we will get) and a choice of range with storage below or range with oven below. Personally, I lean toward storage but looking at resale potential do you think it would be better to get the range with oven.

 

Thanks,

We had an oven in our 5th wheel that may have been used 10 times in 7 years. We did add a Sharp mictowve/ convection that worked extremely well. When we bought the MH last year I didn't even consider if it would have an oven. I love the storage instead. It has a full size Sharp micro/ conv. I use it exclusively. There is only one item either of them didn't do well and that was a full size pound cake. No issue I just make a half recipe and do it in a loaf pan

We've always had an oven in our RVs which did get used, although not frequently. Our current RV has only the stovetop and the microwave/convection oven in it. The convection part works fine, but since we mostly boondock, in order to use it we have to turn on the generator, so I do miss having a propane oven on occasion (like at Thanksgiving and Christmas when we want to roast something). If we were always in an RV park, I probably would never miss the propane oven.

The trend in RVs is away from traditional oven and towards the Microwave/Convection. There are some serious cooks out there and others that boondock a lot who would prefer an oven but over all I dont think it would affect resale; might even improve it a little.

As far as resale value, I doubt it is a factor. Otherwise it is a personal and lifestyle choice. I know people who have had the propane range replaced with a cooktop because they wanted the additional storage space, and there are also some (like us) who replaced the cooktop with a range. The only reason we want one is because we spend a lot of time off grid and don't want to run the generator to bake. Ours get used a lot, but when hooked up we almost always use the convection/microwave.

Agree with others comments above -- forget about the resale value contribution. Trends change. Get what you want and what adds to the pleasure of your RV experience

 

We have a propane range and oven setup and have never used the oven. Tabletop convection ovens do a better job and you can take them outside so they don't heat up the interior of your RV, which is a big deal during our hot, humid summer months where we are.

We would always choose having a convection oven over a regular propane oven. I'd get the storage. Don't know about users in this group, but if the campers around us are an example, most that have problems with the convection oven do not follow the instructions for use and/or don't even read their manual to find out how to use it. More than one person here has been trying to figure out how to use it with using the metal racks that are provided. Others don't know they can use metal pans just like in a real oven, or to adjust the time or temperature, and the list goes on. If you have never had one before, please use the manual for guidance until you are comfortable using it.
