What do you carry for travel dishes?

Thought this would be a good thread starter to see what everyone uses for dishes in the campers. I am currently collecting 50's/60's Melamine dishes by Westinghouse in the Ovation pattern. They came in Aqua, Yellow, Pink, and White. They are light weight and best of all they are unbreakable. My main idea was to get something that would go well with my Aqua appliances and interior colors. So I have chosen Aqua and Yellow for my colors. What do you all use for dinnerware in your trailer/motorhome? Ed

Concerned with weight in the trailer we, of course use a new melamine-type dinner plate purchased at Camping World. We also use plastic drinking cups (wine and juice type).

Yea, we started with plastic cups too, but went the disposable kind too and recycle when possible. Had standard silverware, but went to plastic too there as well.

Dinner

Real Stainless
Corelle for all hot foods, plastic cups & plates for cold drinks and foods.

Now if you really want a snack that's "green" - get frozen food in a bag, clip the top and balance it between two cups in the microwave, then eat it with a fork by holding it in your hand with an oven glove! Packaging, cooking, serving with only one utinsel. (Of course it's only done when eating alone).

Wine stemware

We love our wine and nice stemware; however, with breakage and space issues we now use plastic that our good friends VAJEEP gifted us. The stem unscrews and nests inside of the cup portion. No breakage, no weight and no storage issues. Sweet.

Melamine from Camping World. Most of it survived being ejected from the cabinets until the canned food landed on them.
I do like the enamel idea but prefer the elegance of the design I chose since they are used all the time.
