The item I was most impressed with is the salad spinner, as I love making salads. It can also be used as a colander and a salad serving bowl:
1.5 and 3 quart mixing bowls that will also double as serving bowls:

I don't anticipate using the measuring cups very often, but they'll be handy if/when I do need 'em:
Loads of fun! And they'll take up lots less space in trailer cabinets! Yay!
After five years of snowbirding, I found the collapsible measuring cups take up almost as much room as the regular ones, so don't bother. I have had the collapsible salad spinner that also suffices as a great salad bowl, but hardly use the spinner because I find that I buy the salad in the clamshell for ease and last a little longer without getting squished. Of course the salad strainer can't be used for pasta, so the pasta strainer works great. However the greatest collapsible item, IMHO, is the collapsible dish pan. I use it in the sink for washing small loads of dishes, and small clothes items. Great investment. Also, the green vegetable bags that let them breathe and last longer. My philosophy: Each item should be used at least two ways. Don't make the mistake of filling up your trailer with too much stuff, however how much fun it is to buy!
