I chose not to bring a toaster just for space savings. We toast on a flat, square griddle over our LP stove. The result is much like toast from a diner. Basically Texas toast.

We use a toaster all the time. Never had it blow a breaker and it's on a circuit with other things. Most toasters only draw between 1000-1500 watts.

Yes. All the time. If it throws a breaker, try a different plug or turn off other big power users ie. Water heater, a/c, hair dryer, heater.

We have carried one of these since tent camping before the pop up, over 40 years ago. Blackened and battered, it still (the same one!!) works just fine if we aren't tethered to power.

This one is an ebay item, ours looks even better

We also use a regular 120V toaster and until recently, a toaster oven, but that went to small appliance heaven. You just, like other heavy electric use items, need to be careful with the combined power draw in your RV.

If you practice common sense electrical management a toaster, or a toaster oven, will cause no problem... IF you have shore or generator power.

However ALL high resistance electric appliances are a "no-no" ANYTIME you're getting your 120VAC power from your inverter... (or if/when you have limited shore power amps).

A toaster is fine along with any other kitchen appliance you want to bring with you. As a full timer with a big kitchen in our 5th wheel, I have many kitchen small appliances including a stand mixer. Power management is the key. If on 50 amp with a 50 amp RV, you should have no problems at all. If you have a 50 amp RV and use a 30 amp connection, care must be taken not to overload the system.

I never gave it a thought, we have always used a toaster in our campers and we do so in the MH as well. Aren't you glad you asked? Now you can have toast when camping! (or if you are us....bagels!)

I use both, all you have to worry about as far as I know is not exceeding the breaker amps or it will trip

We use a little toaster oven all the time. As with any appliance - you simply have to be aware of how you're powering it at the moment - and stay within the limits that your power source imposes.

As with any of the "heat source" appliances we use in our motor home (toaster, crock pot, electric skillet, etc.) - we're a little more careful about not leaving it plugged in and/or leaving it unattended during actual use because we perceive the risk of fire to be a little higher than if we were using it in our stick and brick home (i.e., clearance between countertop and cabinets above is a little less than at home, things are often not 100% level, etc.)
