Toasters, which one to get??

Just bought my firt MH...a 2019 Navion 24D. Been reading tons of stuff during my "education" period deciding what/which to get. So the wife and I have been talking about how we want to outfit the unit and the subject of breakfast and therefor, toast, came up. Anyone use a toaster? Which brand and model? Do they really suck up some juice? I can't see trying to make toast in a convection microwave!

Just buy an inexpensive 2 slot toaster at Wal-Mart. They use well under 1,000 watts. Under $ 20. Can be used on the OEM 1,000 watt inverter if your Navion is equipped with one and you dry camp.

This is the one I just bought. I selected it specifically because it used only 900 watts of power so it would work with my 1000W inverter. When I tested it, the inverter monitor measured it at 890W of power, which is perfect. It also toasts both sides of the bread pretty even, which I like. It takes large items like bagels, and generally speaking the Amazon "Basics" brand is usually good stuff. For $18 it's a good deal.

Get one of these
- no battery draw, no generator,no electricity. It's what I use in the early AM, along with a stove top percolator

Correct, no electricity, but now I have to watch my toast cook. My time is more valuable. A toaster that auto cooks and pops-up when done is my preference. I won't burn my toast from distraction, and it's something else I don't have to clean.

I just get an inexpensive toaster from Target or Walmart. I do the same for inside the house. I’ve never felt the need to have an expensive one.

Just the good old two slice Sunbeam Toaster works as good as the foo-foo ones.
Stay basic and you can't go wrong and save a few bucks in the process.

Thank you all. I suppose my concern is depleting my batteries. Until I actually get out there and start using the thing I am just wagging at stuff. Your experiences help in making initial decisions to move forward with something or wait to see what happens.

I bought my RV from my mother. Since they were almost always at full hook up campgrounds, they used a toaster oven. She cooked most of their meals with the Toaster Oven and the Microwave! Why use Propane when your electricity is included in the campsite cost? She also carried an electric skillet for the same reason! My wife and I boondock more than use campgrounds, so I use a stove top perculator for coffee. We don't normally eat breakfast, but the stove top and the microwave (run on generator) suffices! Normally we go to Subway or Arby's so we don't have to wash dishes later! We have small grey water tanks....it's a good excuse anyways!

I like your style, Phil-T, been using these since Ike was President. (and we wuz atent'n it)

Fits today's culture, i.e. retro cool, totally recyclable, no exotic minerals mined by children, weighs nothing so keeps fuel consumption and carbon footprint down, folds into a 1/2" disk, no amp hour concerns, confuses the heck out of your grandkids.

Think of it! You're going to be standing there frying bacon anyway, how hard is it to watch this.


However, if you're going to do coffee, it has to be COFFEE.

Ditto the toaster oven. Hate the convection microwave (no oven in our rig). Toaster oven, instant pot, and electric frying pan and I can do anything!

For convenience DW got a cheap elec 2-slice at Walmart.
My preferred toaster is the old - ancient - 1# coffee can (1950-something low & fat tin can, nail holes in the bottom and old guitar string criss-crossed to support the bread) I've been using since my scouting years. Very best toast ever, especially if done over wood coals.

Since I'm the only one that has toast in the morning I use a camping fork. The ones you use to make hotdogs or toasted marshmallow. I stick the fork threw the bread turn a burner one and rotate it until golden brown.
