You'd need ehu or a large battery bank and solar for an air fryer.
Which oven do you have ?
Mines a Smev, was disappointed with it at first but I've got used to it now and find it quite acceptable. Everything takes longer than you would expect and it's much hotter at the back than the front so regular turning needed.
But once used to it I've done some decent meals in it.

I ordered my new van without an oven. I'd rather have the storage space. Anyway I have a gas pizza oven which I can take if I want to. And a Gas BBQ with a lid that can also be used like an oven.

Small portable electric ovens are fantastic (and cheap) to take with you if you are on hookup and know you are going to be.

I guess the airfryer is similar.

In Summer I never use the oven anyway and in winter I am more often on hookup.

Might put off buyers when you decide to sell it on?
Mine is pretty much a cupboard now (with adjustable shelves šŸ˜‰), but there has been a couple of occasions when I've used it.

Long time
The small ovens in MoHos do seem a bitā€¦.slow, but as Figaro has said use it and get used to it they do work you just have to be patient with it, turn the dish often and wait.
I must admit I donā€™t use mine much but it is capably of doing a great roast!
Problem with AirFryers, Remoskas-wouldnā€™t be without mine-Slow Cookers etc they all require EHU which isnā€™t a problem if you only ever use campsites.

As Otter Spotter says, the Thetford oven on our MH was not much cop as it was not retaining heat due to its woefully poor factory insulation material.
I added extra insulation around the oven with pottery kiln lagging material, and now it's on a par with our oven in the house for heat and cooking times. (y)

Our oven has an independent 3-burner gas hob that sits above it.
I removed the gas hob which gave me access to the oven below.
It was then a simple case of packing the extra insulation around the oven unit and then refitting the hob.

ahh ok mines an actual cooker i'm sure i can do it though cheers for info.

This is where I bought my insulation from, way more than you will need, just do a Google or eBay search for Ceramic Fibre Blanket to find other suppliers for smaller amounts.

I then used aluminium foil tape where needed to hold the blanket bits of blanket in place.
