RV Range and Oven
Even the most basic RV has an RV range. Whether it is one burner, two burners or three, the ability to boil water, cook eggs, cook bacon, or do any thing at all that is a step up from eating protein bars is a big step up in the camping experience.
If you’ve ever played with a Coleman camping stove (Amazon Disclosure), then you’ll notice that the RV stoves aren’t that much different. Even in the nicest RV’s, you still have a pretty strong feeling of camping because of the stove.
The reason I say that is because just like the Coleman’s you turn on the gas, then you have a clicker, match, or lighter to light the flame. The construction is very similar to the Coleman’s – more akin to the Coleman than to your house cook range.
Many RV’s do not have ovens, but in the range in our Open Range, it has a small, very small oven as well. You could cook small casseroles, pizzas, and more. You could not do a turkey in the oven. You could probably not do a large ham either. When we try to light our RV oven, I can tell you its a bit of a trick – we have to light the pilot light, make sure it “took”, then we can turn on the oven. On a scale of 1-10, our oven rates about a 4 – mostly due to lighting convenience. Like I said though, it helps retain the camping feeling.
I did find a few RV Range items from Amazon that I list here for your convenience just in case you are looking:
