I have something like this for my plates and lids.

http://stackitstoreit.com/202/

I've used this for camping ever since we started using a pop-up camper. It holds a lot. I stuff it full, and then none of the plates shift around, and I don't get the rub marks from traveling. It fits in the cupboard above the stove. But we have a newer safari, I know that it would not fit in my MIL's upper cabinets in her classic.

I have to say that gives me envy. It won't fit in my upper cabinets.. 71 overlander here. That has potential for around the house though.

best thing ever - an independent ice maker.

the usual AS refrig/freezer is too slow and too small for the task.

some of them are pricey but well worth it. check around, ebay etc.

they run off a genny or can plug-in inside. just add water - out comes ices in almost no time at all. ours can be set for S, M or L icecubes [actually ice 'tubes'].

no more lugging or buying bags of ice and dealing with the leftover water and waterlogged food. extra ice can them be stored in baggies in the freezer.

we store ours [empty] under the desk in the rear of our AS then plug it in upon arrival.

good luck

A few good things that make our trips easier:
An electric skillet (plug it up outside to fry bacon, eggs, fish, pancakes, etc. Keeps the stink out of the trailer and makes your neighbors look).
A can opener.
A small cutting board that can be cleaned easily.

Thumbs up

Where to start?

Plastic dishes (target) because I can't find the right melamine colors.

Nesting (marine type) cookware. It travels in a bag in the oven.

Mixing bowles (nesting) from crate and barrel. It has stainers and mixing cups etc. Very cool.

Small non skid cutting boards. (marshals)

Lots of storage containers. I like click clack also from marhals.

Skewers

Grill tools and grill basket.

Hot pads.

Long lighter ( for oven)

Cooking utensils

Cuttlery

Spice rack from ikea

Coffee pot

Martini glasses (polycarbonite)

Martini shaker

I'm sure I missed alot since I'm having a martini but you get the idea. Bring everything! Only lighter and smaller.

Wine glasses (polycarbonate)

The Dishes have been bought. I was very undecided about what type of dishes to get. It was between the Corelle and the Speckled Enamel. So Today we went off shopping, not planning on buying anything but just to check out the options. We found the coleman red speckled enamel ware w/cutlery set for $19.99. Shawn loved them. And as he pointed out, I've broken 2 glasses and a dinner plate(while washing dishes) in the last few months.....and I am probably capable of breaking Corelle too.

So at least for now, we have our dishes. Apparently, we are going for spontaneous, compulsive, cheap & cheerful as our decorative them. And if we want something better in the future, it didn't cost us much for these!!

Never had a martini, but cosmos are good and require the same glasses.... and probably the shaker too... just wish I knew how to make one!!

Gotta go add hot pads to the list..
cooking tools too...

Nicki,

I've seen those Enamel plates you got and they are very sharp looking! We've dropped our Corelle plates more than once, even bouncing off of the edge of the countertop and then hitting the floor and not broken one yet. I do know they will break. My mom has had a set for many years and I managed to break at least one of them when I was younger. I had to work at it though!

We try and avoid "uni-taskers": things that are only good for one task. Of course there is always the exception, like the Martini shaker or the corkscrew. The electric skillet is very versatile. My resourceful wife recently found one at Goodwill for $5 (they guaranteed it to work and it did).

Great input from everyone. I'll find a way to put several to use. We're looking for a good spice rack. Will check out Ikea.

Stephen

Nicki, Since you have 2 little ones, a pizza pan (whole wheat homemade dough & allergy sensitve toppings). A cookie sheet, and don't forget measuring cups & spoons. Add in a go to cookbook. Did anyone mention potholders, a table cloth, napkins etc.
We also have our martini and wine glasses with a martini shaker. Oh an ice cube trays for the freezer so you have ice to mix the martinis/ Hoope you are having fun putting all this together. I sure have been having a great time outfitting our a/s.

Hi, I found out that the rack I am using for my plates is actually a lid rack. I found a picture of one similar, but not the exact one I bought at Wal-Mart.

My mom had a set of corelle for more years than I can remember as a kid. We did lose a few pieces but she had the majority of them until she gave them away.

Avoid uni-taskers- that is a good idea. Packing this thing the first time is going to take careful thought.
