Gail and I have a combination microwave/convection oven in our motorhome. Our Winnebago Adventurer also came with a traditional oven. We did some research and decided we could do just fine with the microwave/convection arrangement. So we removed the traditional oven and installed three drawers.
It was a wise move. Gail does most of the cooking and is very happy using the convection oven. We still use the microwave for heating things up and some cooking. I am no expert on this sort of thing, but wanted to bring up the topic after reading the following question at our Facebook Group, RV Advice:
“I need to know which is better in a class A motorhome, an oven or a convection oven? We have an oven and a very small microwave, but are concerned that an oven may heat up the rig too much. We can refigure to put in a convection microwave but not really sure it’s worth the $$.”
I can personally answer the question about a traditional oven heating up the rig too much: That has never been an issue with me with my current motorhome or ones before. On hot days, we’d simply not use the traditional oven. On cold days, it helped heat the coach.
What do you think? Would you please leave a comment?
