Buying Guide

Choosing the appropriate stove for your RV doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Power Supply: Find a stove that supports plenty of power needs. For example, an electric kitchen stove won’t experience power fluctuations as it can run on 120V. A gas-operated stove will be hot if it comes with a high BTU rating,
  • Ease of Cleaning: Select a stove that is simple to clean. A good option would be stainless steel ones as all they need is a cloth and water.
  • Price: There are affordable and premium RV stoves. Those with extra features will be expensive. Narrow down your choices based on the features you need and your preferred price point.
  • Easy of Use and Set up: If a stove doesn’t fit in your RV or is difficult to use you’re less likely to use it. Make sure that you measure to make sure it’s the best fit, as well as know how to use it.
