Full sized propane oven

What do you guys think, full sized propane oven or rv oven? Will a full sized oven consume to much propane to make it practical?

We've got a residential oven, though it's a 24" apartment sized range, not a 30" range. We use it every day for an average of 2 meals daily and we go through about a bbq-sized propane bottle every 4-6 weeks. We mostly use the cooktop burners but do some broiling, baking or pizza making once or twice a week.
I wouldn't be happy with a small RV oven, and a standard 30" range would be overkill for us. An apartment size range is a nice compromise. I say go for it if you plan on doing any baking. I'd guess that the top burners would use just as much gas whether it's an RV stove or a residential range.

if you have room you’ll be much happier with an apartment sized appliance

We have a 24" apartment oven. Our only issue is the burners rattle driving down the road. Of course, it isn't especially hard to remove them and put them back when we're ready to cook.
