Hi, since we bought our trailer we have been using the little pick-nik type salt and pepper shakers; You know, the ones made out of cardboard, with plastic caps. Well, they work OK, but sometimes they pour too much and sometimes nothing comes out. [moisture got in?] I have been looking around for quite a long time and finally found something that I think we will like. I found this little combo salt and pepper shaker at Sports Chalet. One shaker holds both the salt and pepper in one unit and has spring loaded lids, that can only be opened one at a time. The markings on the lids are very hard to see, so I marked them with a Sharpy.
What great finds have you found for your salt and pepper needs, or other spices? [for your Airstream]
Note: the bottom image is what we have been using.
We picked up the salt and pepper moose and tent set along with the bears in the wagon napkin holder in Estes Park as souvenirs when we visited Rocky Mountain National Park. We also like to work small jigsaw puzzles on Airstream trips like this one from the park.
Hi, Carol; Those are neat! And just reminded me of the Airstream/Edsel salt and pepper set that my daughter bought for me. I had them in my trailer, but now they are on display in my computer cabinet. I didn't feel that they would be practical for use. [like my new one]
some of the travel shakers come with lastic lids that seal the air out.
a few grains of rice help absorb moisture in the container.
"ome people also add a desiccant, such as a few grains of uncooked rice, or a saltine cracker in salt shakers to absorb extra moisture and help break up clumps when anticaking agents are not enough."

I wish I had something really clever to add to this, but I don't.
We picked up a smallish, combination sea salt/pepper grinder about 4 years ago that we love. We paid about $15 for it at a kitchen store of some sort. Never had a problem with the salt clogging or any other issues, very handy and goes well with the interior.
Our Interstate came with a spice rack and I purchased individual (empty) bottles with brushed stainless lids somewhere. I buy frequently used spices/herbs in bulk at health foods stores, much cheaper than in boxes at the grocer, and refill as needed.
🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️
Hey Kevin. I checked the spice rack out and that's really cool! Another great option!! Hey I noticed you had a sad face at the end of your posting. Is it because you lost a dog and now only have 2? I hope thats not the case. Take care.
We have a set of stainless steel salt & pepper shakers for the dinette, but we also have these cool spice tins with magnetic bottoms and lids that twist to pour or sprinkle holes...they are inexpensive and look great in the AS. Got ours at World Market, but we've seen them at Bed Bath & Beyond as well. We usually take them down form the range hood when we tow, but we've forgotten a few times and they've never fallen... They also come in a larger size that we use for non-dairy creamer and sweetener packets.
