We mostly use cast iron at home too, but find it too heavy and bulky to use in the trailer. I know a few others do bring a piece or two.

Those Magma pots have heavy bases, and cook very evenly.

I love my cast iron frying pan. It's all I use at home. (Have all sizes) We
always have a medium sized pan in our trailer. In my opinion, once they are seasoned, they are virtually a non stick pan. I always have my eye open for old ones at garage sales and thrift shops.(My wife would say I'm a bit obsessive!!)

Hi: CADreamin... We have found that IKEA Welcome to IKEA.com - IKEA is a great source for all things small, reasonable, and all round great for camp ware. The little plastic flip-top trash container fits under the stove in the cupboard and the S/S pots with glass lids are still with us and not too badly marred. Alf

I mention this out of experience for those who carry items under the sink. Last summer while traveling with my 13' Scamp, I had stored a couple of small, but heavier items under the sink. I hit a hole on the interstate that could not be avoided. The trailer bounced. Evidently, something under the sink flew up and broke a PVC bowl and pipe fitting to the drain. That evening, when using the sink, water came from out of the area on to the floor. Used a small plastic waste basket to catch the water so I could use the sink. Thankfully, this occurred on my way home.

Pressure Cooker

Never used one before but now I find our 5L pressure cooker to be indispensable. Saves mucho propane!

We have a large collection of (old!) cast iron that is how we cook most everything at home and when camping (OK, we don't carry it on our motorcycles, but we also try really hard not to camp when motorcycle touring!)

In our old home built camper that we carried on our UniMoG we had a specially built shelf complete with tie downs to keep our two cast iron pans (in purpose built denim bags, which will definitely be used again in the Escape) from moving about in the cupboard. We'll be figuring out a way to do something similar as soon as we get our trailer!

Check out T-Fal Ingenio cookware. The handles come off and everything nests. Hard to find but I use it at home and love it. Have some pieces for the trailer too. Can sometimes find reasonably priced sets on Ebay.

Great idea Alf! We have an IKEA not too far from us and I'm always looking for an excuse to "visit". Why is it sometimes the most obvious answers elude us ... Thanks for reminding me about IKEA.
