Question Autocruise SMEV 555 Grill

Hi,

I own a 2011 Autocruise Alto.

Has anyone tried to replace the standard SMEV 555 Grill, which we don't find very useful, with another type of oven/grill?

My preference would be a gas oven with or without grill but otherwise a 240V Mini Oven or Microwave combi.

I would appreciate any feedback from anyone else looking to or having already swapped it out.

Many thanks,

Colin.

Hi Colin and welcome to the forum.

I've never had an oven in either motorhome (and never missed it). I guess the answer would depend on what kind of MHing you do - if you're seldom on hook-up, not much point getting an electric gizmo.

I do hear that some ovens/grills aren't great at all so hopefully someone will be able to point you to one of the better options.

Thanks for your response 'jiwawa' I do a fair amount of off grid and prefer to cook outside but when weather bad or need a quick meal then I like the option to have an oven ready meal. Had an oven in my old holdsworth and do miss it.


If I am forced to go electric I will have to just use the hob in these circumstances.


Cheers


Colin.

In nearly 40 years of caravaning and Motorhome I have probably used an oven less than the amount of fingers on one hand. I would swap my present oven for a cupboard if it were an easy job.
Cant help with your question Colin, but it keeps the thread alive.

Welcome to the forum by the way 🙂

Well your either a 'cooker' or your not. Luckily I'm married to an excellent chef and our ovens were used all the time. Even stateside where food (swill) was free.
