This isn't enough info for anyone to help. There are RV salvage yards which will have a stove or Amazon.com has new ones. Use the search function for each item and you will find lots of good info.

Well, I'm in Venice, CA and I've tried to look up RV Salvage yards around here and it's like there's none or they are really expensive. Amazon has a good deal on solar stuff, but I'm just trying to find something that's actually around my budget (Which is cheap. Lol.) The RV stove/oven is the most expensive part I'm looking for to really find a good deal on. Thanks for replying! I appreciate the help.

Here is a stove for you:

A little searching on CL and eBay will find all sorts of new and used RV bits.

I see people parting out RV's on CL quite often. Check often and I bet you will find what you're looking for.

I was going to buy an apartment size range but I'm re-thinking it.

We have camped for decades and I can probably count on the fingers of one hand, the number of times we have used the oven in an RV.

So I'm thinking of a double-burner induction cooktop with a microwave that can convect, or a toaster oven.

We'd probably use them more and with a decent battery bank the induction hob wouldn't be too big a hit on the amp hours. They don't run for long and most of the time they are simmering.

My wife and I were considering an apartment sized range for our bus (we both like to bake), but the prices on those things new are astronomical. With having to convert from NG to LPG, we weren't too keen on the idea of getting a used one and not knowing the condition of it. As luck would have it, the other day I happened to be perusing our local Craigslist postings and found a 22" 3-Burner RV range and oven for $50.00. Like you mentioned-lots of RVers never use their ovens, so this gentleman swapped his out for a combination microwave/convection model and I reaped the benefits.

At that price, I would change my mind back again

Neither am I all that impressed with those popular RV combination ranges.

They are expensive, and cheaply made. For $50 I'd take a chance though.
