My husband and I are preparing to sell our travel trailer.

We are looking to purchase a 5th Wheel.

We have not settled on a manufacture as of yet. We plan on to purchase something that is no more then 4 years old to new....depending on features, size and of course $'s.

My sister and brother-in-law have recently bought a 2021 Grand Design 5th Wheel.

The heads up from my sister is to make sure we do not purchase a unit with a "residential Stove/oven".

Please share your intake, experience, knowledge on this.

Thank you,
Denise

I have a small 4 burner residential cooktop, no oven. I have two issues, the burner igniter operates on 120 volt only and the burner tops will dance around if not secured with bungee cords. It works much better than the cheap Suburban that it replaced.

Did they say why? Ours has a residential stove and it's a far cry better than the small rv one's we've had in previous RV's. I can't think of a single con to a residential unit over an RV specific one.

I wonder what is actually meant by “residential Stove/oven"?

There are gas residential stove/ovens that can be setup to use either natural gas, or propane. I don’t see a problem there.

There are of course electric residential stove/ovens that need 240v AC. That would be a problem.

I'm assuming your sister is talking about the Insignia residential style range that some fifth wheels are now making a standard feature. We have one in our Pinnacle and have not found a down side to it. It cooks and bakes much better than any rv type oven we have ever owned. The temps in the rv ovens were very difficult to regulate which resulted in burned biscuit bottoms. We haven't used the Insignia oven a bunch but it seems to be fairly accurate with the temp settings. I would ask for more details as to what she doesn't like about it.

We tend to use the convection feature on our microwave as much as possible as it does not generate as much heat as the oven does, especially in hot weather when we are trying to help the a/c's keep us cool.

If you have the correct pots and pans, drop the gas oven/cook top. We have an Induction Cook Top and use the Convection side of the Micro for all Baking.
Even did a small Prime Rib at New Years and it came out perfect.
Much, much less heat generation inside.

They're probably referring to the Insignia ovens (and cooktops) that Grand Design moved to a year or two ago. There have been issues with keeping the oven lit. It's due to low gas flow and Insignia has come up with a fix for it. Our 2020 GD Solitude came with a Furrion oven and cooktop. The cooktop is great; the oven won't stay within 75 degrees of where it's set. We've not used the ovens in either of our 5th wheels, anyway - we use the convection oven that's part of the microwave and use the lower oven for storing pots and pans.

Tom_M... I think if you unscrew the top of your igniter or clicker to light the burners, you will find a AA battery. It will light the burner if no plug in is available. At least that is what I have, but I have an oven as well as burners on top....

Thanks all for the input.

I will be asking my sister exactly why she does not recommend the residential style of stove/oven cooking.

I do suspect that it may be due to the fact that you are limited to only use it if hooked up to electrical.

I know that they like to do both style of camping....full hook up and dry camping.

I will be asking her for more information.

The igniter is strictly 120volt. This is a residential cooktop. To light a burner you turn the knob for the burner then press it in for a few seconds to activate the igniter.
