If you like toast with your eggs. Try a "toad in the hole". Take the center out of of a firm piece of bread or muffin, butter it on both sides if you intend to flip it. Put it butter side down in a preheated skillet and break an egg into the hole in the bread. Cook the egg and toast the bread to your liking (overeasy, sunnyside, or hard) at the same time. Adjust the time the bread is in the pan with the egg to get them both cooked the way you like it. Enjoy!

What - no one uses the exhaust manifold of their tow vehicle?

Don't know about your Tourerg, but I can't even see the exhaust manifold in my vehicle. Back in the 60's one of my dad's old german fishing buddies used to love to drink coffee. Wrapped a piece of copper pipe around the exhaust header pipe on the Ford pickup that hauled the boat and camper. Ran water from the camper tank through the pipe to a petcock fastened under the dash board. Teaspoon of ersatz coffe in the mug, open the valve and you had hot coffee.

1. Cut out a stencil of a veiled figure. Set that stencil on piece of bread.
2. Spray with PAM.
3. Take battery out of smoke detector.
4. Get Coleman toaster red hot; put bread ... well you know.
5. Display saintly bread reverently around the campground.
6. Fame of toast spreads far and wide. Pilgrimage begins.
7. Put up on eBay. Winning bid exceeds your wildest expectations. Go to Vegas.
8. Bidder reneges (of course).
9. Sell Airstream with lost smoke detector to cover Vegas debts.

Going to my room now...

We found that a toaster was a "must-have" in our Interstate.

Have also been known to skewer a slice of bread on a toasting fork and brown it over a morning fire. You can also put buttered slices into a pie iron, jam in the center, and have a neat little jammie sammie with your eggs and bacon.

Gelert Folding toaster for camping toast | The Camping Stove Specialist


We have had one for a looooong time...wouldn't be without it. Bought one for the new TC also...
We usually boondock, so the stove and oven get used frequently no 'tricity where we go. Don't have a 'lectric toaster, don't have a micro...don't miss 'em.
K-I-S-S. This gadget takes up about as much space as a frisbee (we do carry one of those...)

Whoops ... that link sure give the product a poor rating ... it seems you've had better luck than the reviewers!

When I was a kid, my dad used to make toast over a fire using a can (open at both ends). Can on fire grate, bread on top. Kinda toasted the middle of the bread and not so much the crust. Mmmmmm.

Well, Thank you for all your good input. Have to look for that old toaster thing. Might still have it around here somewhere. So far in our airstreaming we have not been stationary for very long. We like to move around. Last month, in Panama City, Fla was the longest stationary period yet, 5 days. We don't often get into the campfire mode but that would work when used. I just haven't figured out how to use those 2 large slots in the top of the airstream yet. Have to work on that one.

I do like the biscuit idea. Can't beat fresh, homemade biscuits. When I was in Vietnam we did heat the c-rat cans using the exhaust manifold on a truck. Never really got them hot but did melt the globules of fat and make them warm. Better than nothing. I think the best solution, however, is taking me backward. Somethings just work best. Simple is better. I think I'll look to find/replace my old burner top toaster. Lightweight, compact and just simply works well.

Thank you all. I knew we could count on your many miles of experience in all things related to Airstreaming. See ya on the road. ( Only saw 3 on my trip to Fla and back).

They are rather pricey...$2 I think...you can still find them at Wallys or local store that carries camping goods...I have been known to pass one along when I meet noobs (or old timers who "remember when")...one of those timeless camping tricks...Folks always get a kick out of these...perfect toast on the stove top, backpacking stove, or right over the campfire coals!
Stream on.

I initially thought that too, but a propane bbq grill bathes your food also.

Depends on whether I feel like eating healthy, in that case I use my camping toaster which is a round, metal disc about the size of the burner with 4 crossing wire toast holders that stand up from the disc. You would have to cut your muffins in half so they would sit properly on the wire bread holders. This little gadget is great and makes toast in half the time of my toaster. You can buy them in any good camping store or online. If I don't give a hoot about the calories I would slather those muffins in butter and grill them in a fry pan. Living in a 12ft pick up truck camper electric toasters are not an option and besides who wants to waste the space.

Head to your local collectables or antique store and pick up one of these.
We've had ours since my grandmother used it on her old gas stove.

Works great, you just have to keep an eye on it and not walk away.
