There are other vegans here, so you are in good company.

I would have to be actually starving to be persuaded to eat Spam.

Okay, if you knew how some of the veggies are raised that are sold at roadside mkts, you might prefer the spam. Be very careful with what is bought at roadside mkts, wash everything thoughly, totally. Even if it says organic, the produce is usually carried in the bed of an unwashed pickup. We buy from these mkts a lot and try to use good judgement. The produce sold at regular grocery stores is often safer. Jim

I'm sitting here laughing and thinking Why is there a problem? Spam is not meat.

And that, dear Gearheart, is the problem.

Mystery meat in a can.

I once watched a woman slice a can of Spam, fry it in Crisco, then serve it to her family as sandwiches....with Miracle Whip, on white bread.

They loved it.

I eat they same foods in the trailer as I do at at home. So stocking the trailer is not rocket science. From the house pantry direct to the trailer. I hit local farmers markets when possible for veggies and other delights at home and on the road. When all else fails it generally is not more than a few miles to the closest Walmart. Never leave home without a few cans of SPAM, good thick cut bacon and a couple of streaks. Had fried SPAM for breakfast this morning.

I prefer to cook infrequently. Too hot in summer. So part of the answer is to fill the freezer. Also makes running that unit easier. I keep freezer packs on board also. Managing the refrigerator/freezer is easier with this approach.

One must be strict about vermin control with foodstuffs to put food into a larger context. The reefer is rather the heart of an RV, and the storage, prep, and disposal of food is related. Anything outside of the reefer not strongly packaged/stored is a potential problem.

Mice need only a 1/4" opening, and rats 1/2" to enter a trailer. Insects will enter in ways one doesn't expect. Threads on this are around here.

FWIW, I tend to do food prep outside as much as possible. Clean up is easier, and the interior is less likely to have vermin attractants as a result.

A screen room with the main awning is attractive for this reason: post shopping storage prep, meal prep and some cooking. Keep the problems away from the TT interior.

On a trip where I'm likely to do an extensive amount of work with food is also where I'd be likely to put out a screen room. On days of travel is where I don't want the mess. Etc.

My suggestion: Don't pack a case of Tikka Masala sauce on the shelf under the sink in a 20' and drive the bumpiest part of the Alaska Highway. The shelf will break as will all the jars. Unless, of course, you enjoy mopping up all that sauce when it gets behind the stove and you enjoy crawling as far as you can into the rear storage compartment to reach all the nooks and crannies it has seeped into.

On a positive note, the floor of the pantry in our 25' fits one six-packof beer perfectly.

I haven't seen this in the thread yet -- but outside of the fridge, stock heavy items low to the floor and lighter/less dense items higher up. Those overhead cabinets should not be carrying cast iron or that 50# wheel of cheddar.

In the fridge, stock veggies, broths, etc. lower down, dairy higher to keep colder requirement items closer to the cooling fins.

I prefer my beer as nature intended it -- warm, unfiltered and bit of dirt floating in it. Beer goes in the floor cabinets .

Spam Fries

Just take the brick of Spam,slice it two ways as if to make shoestring potatoes, and fry them up. You don't even have to add grease!
