Interesting ---
I remember that very SMB being up for sale sometime back in 2014 (back when I was still looking for a van.) Really dug the look of that Dodge-based RB.

Was (and still am) intrigued by all the "comforts of home" that it manages to incorporate into its tidy interior layout. (Both a proper head....and also an oven......?)

There's something amazingly, weirdly cool....about the idea of having a van that has the capability to produce a clam bake. Haha....or a pot pie. Or a casserole. Or a glazed ham. Or...oh wait! Banana bread. Or....oh man, this actually all sounds beyond fantastic.

.....OK, I'll admit it: I started out here half-kidding.....but the more this gets contemplated, the more it seems there's a **serious need** to look into installing an oven in my rig....

You sound like someone who needs to get into Dutch Oven baking. I do a killer pineapple upside down cake that's worth driving for.......

MountainBikeRoamer: Camp Chef portable propane oven is your answer. It's on our short list of camping related purchases. Fresh baked cookies (from a tube) before turning in for the night, fresh baked cinnamon rolls (also from a tube!) In the morning, a plethora of store bought family sized frozen meals for those nights out that you just want to enjoy where you are, not having to cook. Think of the possibilities!

Sorry for the sidetrack.

I put an oven in for Slacker. I absolutely love the idea but don't think I could lose that much space, especially in an RB as it was. Anyway, the Camp Chef combo is a strong possibility for me.

Here's a pic of it, not something you see every day in an SMB.

This oven folds flat for easy storage. Goes a top a propane stove. It actually works really well, especially with a fold up thermal cover over it!

^^^ those work amazing for what they are. I highly second the idea.

first time we used ours my wife made me white cake loaves topped with raspberries and whipped cream at city of rocks. nachos, pizza, heating up muffins, making them from scratch, you name it, those little ovens work great. only issue would be limited space since they are compact. wife usually does cupcakes or mini loaves and the like since a full cake tin wont fit inside.

I have one of those. It is pretty cool and works pretty well. You just have to remember that it's not a home oven where you throw stuff in and walk away. You have to monitor your baking and make sure it doesn't burn on the top of bottom since the heat isn't as even as a residential stove. I remember having to flip a few things, like biscuits, to get them done evenly. Still worth it!
