Default Replacing Microwave with Oven?

We're picking up a 2009 3326 later this month. It has a microwave but I would prefer an oven. Is it very difficult to install an oven? There are easier options obviously, but I was just wondering.

Check out Recpro.com I just upgraded my cooktop with thiers...they also have an oven and cooktop combo. I can tell you that it's made by Greystone and is really good quality, modern and has LEDs and starter. Check them out. As for install if you decide to pick this one up I can walk you through it. It's a fairly easy process.

Although I am not familiar with the Recpro oven, an important point is to install support that carries the weight down to the floor. When TM installs a cooktop-oven, the unit actually hangs from the countertop around the opening. Since the countertop is made of pressed sawdust, the screws tend to pull out, which damages both the countertop and the unit.

Been there, done that, with both the Suburban (or was it Dometic?) in my first two 2720's, and the Furrion in my present trailer.

Iím looking to do the same thing with my 2007 3326. Just a thought I had; make sure you insulate around the oven. You have the fridge directly to the right and the fresh water tank directly below. Both of those might not take too kindly to the heat from the oven.
