Wedgewood (Atwood) Vision range – Review


Wedgewood (Atwood) Vision range – Review

The Wedgewood (Atwood) Vision range makes us feel at home! It allows us to cook healthy meals and we can cook just about anything, so we don’t crave for restaurants. For us there is no such thing as “Vanlife Cooking”, we just cook like we used to in a house!

We’ve been using the range full-time since 2017 and our experience with it is super positive; keep reading to know why!

  • Cutout dimensions:

  • Oven dimensions (17″ model), Top section (cook/heat): 6″ high x 15″ wide x 14″ deep
  • Oven dimensions (17″ model), Bottom section (broil): 2″ high x 15″ wide x 14″ deep
  • Gas pressure: 11″ W.C. (so a standard RV propane regulator is fine)
  • Propane consumption: we use the range 6 or 7 times a day (boiling water for coffee, making toasts, preparing lunch and dinner, heating water for washing the dishes, boiling water for tea in the evening) and our 20 lbs propane tank last more than two months (of course the tank empty faster if we use our Propex Heater and our Propane Shower)


What we Like

  • The burners precisely adjust from a low simmer to a full burn (they really do!).
  • The oven has a thermostat (graded in Fahrenheit), just like a regular oven.
  • It’s not a full-size oven, but it’s the perfect size for the two of us; we don’t really have to compromise.
  • We like the fact that we don’t have to set-up our kitchen every time we want to cook; no need to get a camping stove on the countertop and store it after use. Sure, it occupies precious space in our van, but we think it’s totally worth it for being able to cook everything we like.


What we Don’t Like …

  • The Wedgewood Vision range model doesn’t have sealed burners, so food sometimes find its way under the burner (it can be cleaned by removing the stove top). The Atwood model does have sealed burners, but be aware that sealed burners don’t boil water as fast a a non-seal burners…
  • When we first tried to ignite the burner using the Piezo, it wouldn’t work; we noticed the sparks occurred inside the burner box instead of at the burner.  That’s because the insulation of the electrical wire was too thin; adding heat shrink tubing on each electrical wire solved the issue! It’s a 15 minutes job, no big deal…

Models & Where to Buy

The Wedgewood Vision range comes in a 17″ or 21″ oven size. We chose the 17″ and it’s perfect for our needs:

We also installed the bi-fold cover to act as a backsplash:

We detailed EVERYTHING about our installation in the following articles:




  1. Rotate the burner knob to “LITE” position
  2. Rotate the “SPARK” knob
  3. Select the desired intensity (from low to high)
  4. Voilà!

There is no electrical Piezo igniter, a long lighter is needed. Here is how it goes:

1.Push and rotate the oven knob to “PILOT” (hold it there) and light the pilot using a lighter. Keep pushing the knob on “PILOT” position for 5 to 10 seconds. You can now release the knob and the pilot stays on:

Release the “PILOT” knob after 5-10 seconds. The pilot stays on.


2. Select the desired oven temperature (from 300F to 500F, or Broil).

3. To temporarily turn off the oven, set the knob to “PILOT”: the pilot stays on and the oven can be used again without using a lighter. When finished, turn the knob to “OFF”: the pilot turns off (a lighter is required to use the oven again).


To cook (or heat) food use the top section of the oven; to broil use the bottom section:



So far we used the oven to toast bread, cook meat, pizza, muffins, brownies, heat pies and croissants… the list goes on. It works just like a regular oven!



We’ve been using the Wedgewood Vision range since February 2017 and it just work as it should, awesome! We see this model being installed in so many RV, we believe it is a robust product that will pass the test of time.

Suburban offers ranges very similar to Atwood. To be honest, the only reason why we bought an Atwood range is because we found a deal we couldn’t let go! Both products seems acceptable choices.

We considered buying it because being portable sounded nice… in theory. In the real world, we prefer a permanent setup where we can just use the range without having to set it up. It’s much less irritating this way! Also, we met some fellow vandwellers who mentioned that the oven thermostat on the Camp Chef doesn’t work so good; it’s more like a ON/OFF thing which is not great…

  1. Thanks a ton for these posts, they’re very informative.

    I have the same stove but the non-Piezo model and for the life of me I can’t get it working properly. When attached to a propane tank with a low pressure, high pressure, and a fancy two-stage regulator, the burners won’t ignite and no gas is getting past the Atwood’s built-in regulator.

    I then tried eliminating any regulators at the tank itself and relying only on the Atwood’s built-in regulator. That works, but it seems like the flame is too strong at that point!

    Based on your propane diagrams, it seems the Atwood is hooked up after the two-stage regulator and not directly to the tanks – is that the case? Because for the life of me I can’t seem to get the gas flowing unless the tank is connected directly to the Atwood’s internal regulator.

      • Really appreciate the response, it’s good to know that there is indeed supposed to be an 11″ W.C. rated regulator at the tank and the Atwood’s internal regulator takes that down to 10″ W.C.

        All our other propane appliances work, from our Eccotemp water heater to the ProCom house heater. Only the stove is giving us trouble. Having tried 3 different regulators, all brand new, I’m starting to suspect there’s something wrong with the unit itself.

        Thanks again for getting back to me, it’s a big help!

  2. Does the oven truly work for baking? My current oven in RV doesn’t work well at all. Burns everything on the bottom, raw on top. I have stopped using it completely which bothers me about living in RV full time because baking feeds my soul.

  3. Hi A&I-

    Hmmm. We got a new (but old) Wedgewood, nice stove. But…

    …it does rattle a lot. Did you go after specific rattle points, or is the dish rag approach all you did? I am thinking some neoprene in strategic non-super hot locations, like at the side of the stove top.



  4. Hi!

    @agreenstello van here, working on van 2.0. Question: What are the interior dimensions? Or, specifically, can you fit a “standard” frozen pizza in the oven? You guys are an inspiration.

    • Have you try a match instead of the spark? If it ignite, the spark is probably the issue. Check visually if you actually get a spark at the burner? No sparks, then check if the spark happen somewhere along the electrical wire. If that’s the case, insulate your wire with heat shrink.
      Otherwise I’ve no idea, you might want to stop by a RV repair shop.

      Good luck!

  5. Hi Antoine – couple of questions. Does the stove or bifold cover rattle on back country roads? And I’m planning on putting my frig next to the stove – have you noticed the side of your cabinet getting warm when using the stove? Wondering how much harder my frig might have to work when we’re using the over.

    • It rattles a little, so we leave a dish clothes in between and that solves the issue. The metal all around the oven get hot (can’t touch for too long), so it warms the air around it. If you have to install your fridge close to your oven, maybe try to add a radiant barrier between them (ez-cool or reflectix). But make sure to leave an air gap around the oven, per manual.


  6. Hi There, Great article, I just ordered one of these and looking forward to it. For my pre-planning does the oven require an electric circuit or batteries for the piezo lighter?

  7. Love it!

    Hey did you guys have to insulate the oven? I have seen that some people create an air gap between the oven and the wood frame around it too. Was any of that necessary to keep it from overheating the surrounding area?

    • It doesn’t requires insulation, but it requires an air gap. Like 2 inches if I recall correctly; it’s in the installation manual (link in the article).
