Have been using the same set of Corel for over 20 years now, and not one thing has broken.

Corelle, although the quality isn't as good as it used to be. I don't know about Canadians, but Americans have readily sacrificed quality for price (the Walmart effect).

We use good quality "plastic" from hiking and camping supply stores. It is light, durable and lasts forever! We have been tent campers our whole lives and find that the items that we use have been with us for many years. Stores like REI can set you up with good, light non breakable plates, bowls and utensils.

REI can't be beat and there's one in Bellingham to shop at right after your new trailer is handed over at Sumas (for U.S. citizens).

Corelle, as well. Although I agree that the quality is less than it used to be. Still durable, but the finish on the edges seems suspect.

Careful, Corelle CAN shatter. It usually only happens after repeated heating/cooling from the microwave or dishwasher (of course, no dishwasher worries when used in a trailer). It's microwave 'safe' though, unlike most melamine.

I bought a new set of Corelle for Ten Forward. I agree about the quality, but it has a pattern I like, and you do know.. it's all about the visuals

EXACTLY! Especially for some of us who are so fashion forward. The good thing is that there are so many patterns, it's easy to find something to go with whatever fabric/laminate one chooses.
