coleman camp chef?

I'm planning my kitchen and am going back and forth between a drop in propane RV cook top supplemented with the use of a folding Coleman oven and the Coleman Camp Chef Combo

which has the oven already incorporated. I won't vent it but it would have a window directly above it. I would also line the space the camp chef sits in with hardibacker cement board or sheet rock for fire prevention. Possibly add reflectix to in there somewhere. Has anyone used the Camp Chef combo in their bus conversion? Or the folding camp oven?

Many Thanks!

Hi, I went with a magic chef drop in top by magic chef (from campmor) and a small microwave which gave me more storage/cabinet room.
Any heavy cooking will be done outside on a campfire and I plan on having an outdoor sink and 2-burner top.
I am involved in Boy Scouts with my boys and we camp every month so I love a Dutch oven and my several varieties of Coleman camp stoves and you can make any stovetop an oven of sorts by using tinfoil as a tent over the top just leave some corners open a little so the flame can breath and 35-45 min. Later the baked taters are done.
Good luck

That's a neat little unit. I might have to do a slight re-design of my kitchen counter to accommodate one of those so the burners on top sit just above counter height. I'm amazed by the price too... just slightly more than a set of built in burners...

I like that combo unit.... I might have to go with that for my kitchen.... have a spot set up to use it in the bus and look built in, yet still be removable to take it with me when I want to go tent camping. Of course no 1 lb cylinders, gonna hook it to the big tanks.

I have been using one of these for years at hunting camps. They actually work quite well but they are not set it and forget it types of stoves. They have a thermometer to show the oven temp that you have to check every ten min or so and adjust where you want it. I use this stove to cook for 10-12 people.
