My favorite mornings start with biscuits and gravy, watching the sunrise from my camp rocker chair. We often camp with family and friends, and they always request my husbands’ mouth watering camp cobbler. The kids in my family love gooey cinnamon buns for breakfast. What makes all this a possibility? An excellent RV oven. Here are my favorite options.
Best in versatility would be the Greystone 110 Volt RV Gas Range and Cooktop. It offers a large oven for Cinnamon buns and a four-burner cooktop. This is perfect for those who will often utilize their kitchen for full meals. You will have all the capabilities of your home stove and oven combo. Since our RV is large, we have the 24 inches necessary to install this model. Size is a big determiner in which oven will be right for you.

Find the right RV Stove for You
1. Greystone 110 Volt RV Gas Range and Cooktop
Greystone is an industry leader in RV appliances. This stove-oven combo is perfect for those of us who live in our RV because it offers all the conveniences of home. With four burners on this cooktop, you have the option of cooking full meals in the convenience of your kitchen. We do a lot of grilling and open fire cooking, but this is very helpful on days that the weather is not cooperative. There is nothing like waking to bacon frying and biscuits baking on a cold winter morning in Colorado.
RV cooking can sometimes come with a learning curve, but with this model, cooking is not very different from the gas stove for homes. It has over 8,000 BTUs of power in the burners and up to 500 degrees in the oven. The versatility of using gas can be a game-changer when dry-docked or off the grid. Drydocking means utilizing a generator and having limited electrical abilities. Having the propane feature allows you to use your stove and oven normally.
Greystone includes cast iron grates, foldable glass top, and LED-backlit knobs. LP (liquid propane) gas hook up, and 110V power connection is all that’s needed. This model is 24 inches wide, making it one of the largest stoves for RV use. RV allowance for stove and oven combos can range from a small 17 inches to 24 inches large.
2. RecPro RV Stove 21″
The RecPro is an Ideal option for your budget and the full-time RV’ers needs. It offers three burners and a good size oven of 16 1/2″W x 14″D x 10″H. It is a propane unit that is very useful for dry docking or going off the grid. This combo is an average size at 21 inches wide. It is easy to use and space-effective. There is a stovetop cover attached to the back of the stove.
The only difference you will see between the RecPro and your gas stove at home will be the size. It will be obviously smaller but the cooking transition will be easy. New pots and pans are not required as standard cookware will be appropriate. You will be able to feed the whole camp and stay on budget.
There is an option of a matching vent hood. I like this because if you already have a vent hood that works, there is no need to change it. You have the option if you want to make them match. Vent hoods are great for pulling out smoke and odors in your small space with the bonus of a light.
3. LUBY Large Toaster Oven Countertop
This large countertop oven will accommodate a 14-inch pizza or a 20lb turkey. It is an excellent option for those with quite a few mouths to feed at the campground. Inside or outside, this oven is portable.
You can set individual and precise temperature control for upper and lower racks with a separate temperature selector option. This allows you to set two temperatures for different foods at a time. That is amazing for baking versatility and saving time.
4. Galanz Combo 8-in-1 Air Fryer Toaster Oven
Galanz outdid itself on this model. Yes, I know I didn’t choose this as my number one pick, but I want to give this do-it-all oven its due praise. We have owned an air fryer for a few years now. We love not using oil and grease while we are cooking. We are at the age to start thinking about our cholesterol. This unit has replaced our microwave, air fryer, toaster and serves as an extra oven. We love it!
This fantastic toaster oven offers eight pre-set cooking functions, including air fry, dehydrate, pizza, toast, convection, broil, bake, and warm. All these functions are accessible at a push of a button. It is that easy.
Replacing eight different appliances in an RV is phenomenal when you are in a small space. This oven did just that and was easy on the budget simultaneously. And as a bonus, it is easier to clean than my previous air fryer.
5. Nostalgia Retro 3-in-1 Family Size
Have a budget and low on space? This is your option for versatility and function. It is compact, so it can sit on a counter or be stowed away in a cabinet. It is also portable so that it can be used inside and outside your rig. It uses electricity through a 110 plug.
When it comes to portability and versatility, this beauty has it all. You can fry eggs with bacon while baking biscuits and making coffee. With the option of doing this inside on a rainy day or outside in front of a beautiful sunrise, what more could you ask. It isn’t limited to breakfast either. A griddle, coffee maker, and toaster oven are offered so that you can make many gourmet meals.
This design is perfect for a taste of nostalgia. The teal blue, reminiscent of the ’50s, is a trendy color. If you are the glamping type who loves weekend show-it-offs at campgrounds, this will make you the envy of all your neighbors.
6. Hike Crew Outdoor Gas Camping Oven w/Carry Bag
Want the option of cooking and baking outside? This adorable unit comes with a carry bag for easy transporting. It weighs in at just 30lbs.
This outdoor gas grill has a two-burner cooktop above a small oven. It is perfect for a couple or small family. It has auto ignition and an overheat safety shutoff. It has a removable drip tray for easy cleaning.
The propane hose and regulator are included with your purchase. Just hook it to your propane tank, and set up is a breeze. You will be cooking under the stars in minutes.
7. Coleman Camp Oven
Coleman is an industry leader in all things outdoors. This small oven is made to sit on their propane stove. It uses the heat from the stove and captures it inside this oven to make baking possible in the most remote areas.
This oven is perfect for those who do not bake often but occasionally want Cinnamon rolls, cornbread, or a small cake. It is foldable, making portability and storing simple. It is made of Aluminum. It does get hot on the outside so be careful.
A heat indicator gauge on the outside will need to be watched for accuracy throughout the baking process. The adjustable rack inside can be moved into three different height positions for flexible baking. You can also use it to keep food warm.
8. Lodge Pre-Seasoned Dutch Oven With Loop Handles
I have camped a lot over the past thirty years. When walking into my campsite, the one thing you can count on is finding a Lodge Dutch Oven. My husband is an open fire cooking pro. When the weather is cooperative, you will find a dutch oven in the firepit. I think at one time, we owned six of them. Since then, he has shared a few of them with family and friends.
There is some trial and error when learning how to cook over an open fire, but it is worth the time invested. These cast iron ovens seem to be indestructible when cared for correctly. Please research proper care.
Lodge Dutch Ovens are superior when used on an open fire outside or in the RV on your cooktop or oven. This American made cookware will become heirlooms. Food just tastes better when cooked over an open flame outside. With over 25,500 reviews, I don’t think I am the only one in love with them.
RV Oven Buying Guide
RV ovens come in different sizes and can use electric, propane, or bake using an open fire. There are many choices to choose from. Step one is to decide how much space you have to house your new appliance. How often you will use your oven will factor into how much space you are willing to give it. RV space is limited so being intentional about what is in this space is crucial.
What and where will you be using your oven? If you are going to live in your RV or even live in it part-time and love to bake, consider an oven that is permanently installed in your rig. If you will only use it a few weekends a year and you are there to enjoy nature.
Consider a portable oven that can be moved outside where you want to be. If you only wish to bake the occasional cookies or biscuits for a couple of people, the small oven that can be stored away may be your best option. It is your job to decide if you need a stove (cooktop), a stand-alone oven, or a stove and oven combo.
Through the years, I have owned everything from a tent, pop-up, hybrid roo, fifth wheels, and more. I have cooked on and with many different cooktops and ovens primitive to expensive. Buy what will be right for you, your RV, your needs, and your budget.
Many industry leaders like Greystone, Coleman, Atwood, and Dometic have done years of research and built quality appliances for almost any budget.
FAQs for RV Stoves
What Size Oven do I need?
When considering an oven for your RV, there are several factors, but one of the most important is will you install this oven in your RV kitchen or will it be stored to used outdoors. These are very individualized questions. How often will you bake inside your RV? RV ovens are as varied as RV floor plans. Your RV ovens can be 17 inches wide up to 24 inches. There is not a standard size. RVs are very customized. How much space do you have? Fortunately, my RV has a large 24-inch cooktop and oven, but you will need a measuring tape and do some planning to answer this question for yourself.
Can I install a standard residential stove oven combo in my RV?
Electrical limitations will not allow you to install a standard residential stove and oven combo. An RV is set up on either a 30 or 50 amp electrical service. A standard residential combo requires 30 amps by itself, not leaving enough amps to power the rest of your RV. If you are considering a propane stove and oven combo, it could be a possibility, but there will still be the question of room available for this appliance. Stability while transporting or driving your RV is another primary concern. These are things you will need to take into consideration.
Is a gas oven safe in an RV?
Propane gas appliances made for RV use are very safe when adequately vented. Some newer propane appliances may not need to be vented. Please check the manufacturers’ instructions to ensure you install and use the product correctly. For added safety, install a carbon monoxide detector inside your RV. Some fire detectors may detect both smoke and carbon monoxide, so check your fire detectors manual to see if you are already covered.
Should I install an electric oven in an RV?
We need to revisit how RV electrical systems work to answer this question. RVs are set up on either a 30 or 50 amp service. This determines which and how many items can be using electricity inside your RV simultaneously. Standard residential stove and oven combos require a minimum of 30 amps. Stove and oven combos made for RV use only require 15 amps. This is the difference in cooking while the air conditioning or heat pump is on or not. When installing a stove and oven combo permanently into an RV, choosing a unit designed for RV use is safest.
Can I use my oven while driving?
This is a popular question, and if you have a completely electric stove and oven combo, the answer is no. You can only use your electric stove and oven combo when plugged into an electrical service. What about a propane oven? I think the question shouldn’t be can I but rather, should I. Yes, a propane stove and oven combo will operate while driving, but it is a risky and somewhat dangerous way to cook a meal. Just pull over and take the 20-30 minutes necessary to prepare your lunch safely.
Eating is a vital part of the camping experience. Some of the best meals I have ever had I have eaten while camping. It should be fun and not stressful. Choosing an oven shouldn’t be stressful either. Measure for size, determine how and how often it will be used, make a budget and use this buying guide to find your perfect oven.
Our best choice is still the Greystone, 110 Volt RV Gas Range and Cooktop, Stove and Oven Combo, 24 Inch, LP Gas, Stainless Steel. It has all the features we need to make living in our RV easy. The four burners allow me to boil pasta, fry corn, make tea, and grill chicken while my pineapple dump cake bakes in the oven. Because it is a propane unit, I can cook these meals while staying warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
I hope this buying guide has helped you answer your questions about RV ovens. I have tried to be as thorough as possible and make it as easy as possible. Start with what will fit your space and budget, and then make some memories. And if you choose the dutch oven, put two cans of the fruit of your choice in it, cover the fruit with one box of yellow cake mix, add two sticks of butter cut up on top, cover, and place in the hot coals of an open fire for about 30-40 minutes. You can add some hot coals directly on the lid to brown on top. Enjoy your Camp Cobbler.
