Default swapping microwave to a propane stove

Has anyone swapped their convection microwave to a propane stove? I really love to cook and not liking the small microwave to cook/bake in. Love to hear if anyone has accomplished this and how hard/easy it was. I have a 23 winnebago travato 59k

I've never heard of anyone doing such. Most of us would be thrilled if we just had a convection microwave. LOL

Looking at a video, it appears that you would need to do a full reconstruction of that small galley area. I would worry that none of the slot ins are small enough to fit. You would need to figure out where you would store the necessary pots and pans. Another thing to think about is how large your propane tank is... and how long it would last if you were using the oven. On the road, it isn't always easy to find propane.

Have you considered just adding a portable inductive cooktop?

Maybe not quite as nice as gas, but many people think it is close enough.
Best of both worlds, maybe.

Laurie, are you referring to installing a propane oven? Since you have propane burners, here's a handy stovetop oven. Small, lightweight, and fun to bake in. https://www.omniasweden.com/us/

Default cooktop

You could just purchase an induction cooktop. Propane stove vs electric microwave....lots of issues to address to install.......

I have a microwave and also an OEM propane stove in my Coachmen B. Love them and use them both.....
