Built under the name "Camp Chef" bought at Sam's Club about a year ago. I have seen the price as high as $240, :? I think I pulled the triger around $175. :?
I have seen them in black and chroam and green and chroam. They are ment to be used on a table at your camp site, I've looked at several other builds and found people either building in a slide out for the oven that dbls as the transport location or a dedicated storage place for transport and the unit is removed and used. The unit is DBL walled with min to no insulation as far as I can see so insulating, heat shielding and venting are issues I'm keeping in mind. The temp controll is much like your BBQ grill, no T-stat. After much debate I removed the wind shield / cover to further the built in look. I dont remember the exact deminsions off hand but as you can see the scale does lend its self to a small kitchen. The argument could be made on the wasted space of an "Oven" in the build but a warm gooey fresh baked cookie will make that thought go away. :lol:

Nice choice of material. The cushions go very well with your paneling. :thumbsup:

I agree with Sharon, that's a good match for the panelling.

Tony,

You are really moving along! I can't say how much I am blown away by your build. BTW, like others, I have envy over your stove/oven. Your cushions and covers look great, too.

Tony,

Great progress on a sharp looking Tear ! The aluminum trim
around the stove is one of those "little details" that just helps
a project get pulled all together. Great work !

Hey Tony, I lost track of your build for a while there! I think this needs to be in the build journals section!

Man, your interior and galley looks great. Looks to me you weld aluminum pretty good, I would think that stuff would melt too quick to so it at all! You have a good sense of taste too with the bed cover. Doing an excellent job! :thumbsup:

Thanks Thomas!

Your trailer has turned out fantastic! :thumbsup: I hope to come close to your level of work when I'm done.............and when am I going to be done? I think I'm about 40 hrs from "usable/weather tight" :worship: Work has picked up and family have eaten up my extra time latley. Hope to have a progress report for you soon.

Woah! :shock: 1 year plus Thomas! :oops: I'm still around. I guess I regressed into a lurker again. Still around needing to get back on track.

Tony,

I'm in the same boat too, except it has been about 2-1/2 years for me. I'm stalled at the 80% (but campable) stage right now.

Take care,
Tom
