pizza stone or unglazed terra cotta tile on metal shelf below rack. Don't cover up the holes. An accurate thermometer would help to know what temp. you are actually baking at.

Pizza stone for us. Makes a lot of difference for that over browning on bottom.

Best bread box (and most expensive) I’ve ever owned. Had 5 motorhomes and have never used the oven. Not much use for the stove top either. But then this is not a helpful reply...[emoticon]

Yep. + whatever on the pizza stone. Buffers and equalizes the heat. The heat is too concentrated in a small oven without that stone.

Prove it to yourself by getting an unglazed clay tile from any home center. They do the job too, but we broke a couple from the bouncing while towing. For a long time I continued to use the last broken one, and just arranged the pieces each time we setup. Finally spent a couple sawbucks on an actual round pizza stone and it seems to be indestructible.

Get a little hanging analog temperature gauge to hang on the rack, to confirm your actual temps. Then practice, which is the most rewarding part of this.

Like most of the campers so far, my wife uses it for storage, and bakes anything in her toaster oven... besides it saves propane. Good Luck and Happy Camping !!


Problem with toaster ovens, is they don't work out on a dead-end dirt road with the nearest electricity 4 miles away. [emoticon]

I guess I'll be the first to advise - not a pizza stone but - an airbake cookie sheet. We've used one for the past oh so many years and can bake anything we want. Just put it under whatever you're cooking and it will keep the bottom from burning while the top cooks evenly.

We (my DW) are in the camp of having a thermometer in the oven so you know what is really going on, and a pizza stone on the deflector thin metal thing. My wife loves using the oven.
She will also put stuff on a piece of foil and put it right on the bottom of the oven to use it as a broiler to brown some things.

I had a 17" RV oven in our MH and used both a pizza stone and a 'air bake' cookie sheet with fair results.
My friend purchased a new "Grand Design" 5th wheel with a 22" Furrion oven. The Furrion had a piezo igniter and a oven light, plus it was 4" taller. Last year I removed my old oven and installed a new Furrion. It is truly a great oven, no leaks and lights without getting on the floor. I lost 4" of pan storage space but the new oven cooks just like my oven at home.
