Where do you pack pots and pans when traveling?

We have a set of "stackable" pots and pans with removable handles. We keep ours in the oven,

I have a frypan, a saute pan, and two saucepans that more or less nest (they're of varying brands and construction) that go in the roof locker over the range.

The large stockpot and the double boiler insert for the saucepan (which fits fully inside the stockpot) go in the forward dinette drawer since the stockpot is too high for the roof lockers.

The tea kettle lives on the range when parked and in the oven when under way.

I'm not sure how the 25' floorplan differs so some of this may not work for you.

We hardly use the oven in this Vintage 70 model, so the oven makes a great place (with the pilot going) to keep crackers,macaroni,.potatoe chips etc so it all stays crisp and sometimes even crispier.
Above the fridge, is where we keep mostly pyrex cooking dishes. Under the sink area is where we put major cooking machines, like a toaster, a slow cooker, and a blender.
We left the top stove covered with its' shield - and use a small microwave to cook with, and next to it a coffee maker for heating hot water to 'quick wash' with or cook with or make instant coffee. We use paper plates with the holders. Two main cups for drinking it, that we use over and over again. So...I would say that the oven was the best place to store a skillet or pans. Less is better!

I use marine nesting cookware. When it's not in use I keep it in the oven. When were towing I put it in a big bag so I don't scratch the oven.

Not a very good picture, I'm afraid, but you can see the iron frypan, aluminum saute pan, and saucepan nested on the left side of the photo, and a colander and saucepan on the right, along with lids.

I've thought of getting the fancy nesting cookware with the removable handles but I don't think it would recover much useful space, and I find that with the 30' classic there is really plenty of space in the galley unless you're trying to haul provisions for a long trip (over a week) where you don't plan to stop and resupply while on the road.

Thumbs up Nesting pots and lids

Hello .. We have the nesting pots and pans that Camping World carried about 8 years ago and they have stood up very well. Take up very little room and we keep them under the sink with the fry daddy and toaster. Only thing that rides in the oven is a large teflon coated frying pan with lid...

We have an 88 excella. Our cookware travels in a deep drawer under the microwave.

We have a 30' Classic slide out. The nested pans go in a slide out drawer which is under one of the dinette seats. The other fry pan goes in a drawer that is below the refrigerator.

Storing pots and pans in the oven when underway can result in problems to the oven you dont want and you can probably figure out how I know.

We put ours under the kitchen sink. A lot of room there. Just got a smaller basket and put the soaps and sponges in it next to them.

Happy, sends a big thank you to you all

Gee, Thanks for all the good advice. I didnít know camping World had stackable pots and pans. I will check that out for sure. Happy, seemed so large when we brought her home; however, now I am beginning to understand that less is more. It is so important to be organized. I think it is wonderful that Airstream folks take the time to share all there hard earned knowledge. This is a wonderful Forum.
CU, on the road.

The stacking pots and pans are great space-wise, but a real pain when getting out or replacing the smaller pots since the whole stack must be disassembled to get them in and out. Ours go under the sink.

We carry a toaster and 12v crock pot in the upper oven and a frying pan below. All of the objects in the oven ride on pads of non-skid shelf-liner. We have never had any problems carrying items in the oven.
