I have an ice maker, too. I never use it because it is a hassle to clean it every time we go camping and since most of our trips have been weekend trips, a bag of ice usually last us the weekend.

BTW, it is silver to match the Airstream.

Smile Whatever works for you and your budget!

As a woman who minds the kid, cleans the house and Airstream, tows the Airstream, etc....I actually don't mind doing dishes while camping cause it means I get to listen to music (ipod) and enjoy the scenery while hubby chases the child. Its also kinda therapeutic as the dirty dish gets clean and something tangible is accomplished. Then again I like to bake bread so just consider the source

I must add, however, that I have a dishwasher at home. If I were fulltiming I might do things differently. Best of luck with your decision!

Katzklaw that is a sweet set up for fulltiming!! The washer/dryer thing is really awesome (think that's in another thread though)!

"Roughing it is part of what it's all about IMHO."

Using an airstream isn't roughing it. Roughing it is what I did in my youth. I'd hike for a week or two in the wilderness with everything that I needed on my back. Or I carried all of my gear on my bicycle while cycling 2,000 through Europe, including a jaunt over the Alps. So don't apologize for wanting a dishwasher since none of us here are really roughing it!

Well... I might tend to agree with you if the diswashers (& clothes washers) in RV's were efficient and could wash more than a 2 to 3 piece setting... Saying that camping in an Airstream isn't "roughing it" thus justifying wasting resources doesn't quite make it work for me. A lot of folks boondock and aren't hooked up to the grid so just because their sleeping pad is more than a 2" foam pad doesn't mean they are wasting resources or living in the lap of luxury...

Chill, dude...

Yeah buddy . . . shoulda checked the site before committing the faux pas of CUMMINS over CATERPILLAR. Have driven both and sure prefer the former however sad that the latter has left the over-the-road market.

Was thinking about the story of the Indy-winning Unser brothers out of Albuquerque who used to rat race their matching NEWELL mohos on mountain two-laners . . . imagine being on that road at sunset, hey!

I was talking about *wanting* a dishwasher, not whether it's practical.

I'm not sure where you get the idea that I'm justifying wasting resources. Washing dishes by hand is wasteful, and many dishwashers use less energy than hand washing.

Perhaps you need to chill, dude.

How to tell if you're 'Green' enough:

1. I have an Airstream, but I never move it because of the carbon emissions.

2. On the rare occasions when I do move my Airstream, I tow with a Prius.

3. I use an ice scraper on the inside of my windows when I drive in winter.

4. I reuse paper plates.

5. I put rocks under my mattress because I like to rough it.

My idea of roughing it is staying in a campground that doesn't have a sewer hook up. Lugging that blue tote is a real rough chore!
