Actually with the hot'n'cold water right there under the sink, adding an exterior hookup there would not be that hard to do.

Though only issue with a larger sink is the amount of water required to use it. Really only a concern when boondocking, but that is what we mostly do. That said, I just use a small plastic dishpan outside most of the time.

I use the outside shower & a plastic dishpan quite a bit, and while one could use more water with a larger sink, I tend to use "Navy Shower" techniques rather than filling the sink.

I currently have a hospital wash basin that is exactly the same size at the sink interior, and use a small amount of water in it to do dishes. While limiting the amount of water I use, it also allows me to dump the used dish water in the toilet, extending the length of time I can go before filling the grey tank.

A larger sink wouldn't have to use more water, just make it easier for large pans, bowls, etc.

We too are big on just doing the sponge bath thing. Saves lots of water, and gets you nice and clean. Learned this while doing 1-2 week excursions into the backcountry, that how nice a liter of warm water and a small cloth can make you feel.

We do the same with dishes, but just throw the dishwater into the trees, as we are usually boondocking.

We don't really have anything for big pans and bowls though. Our packing has been optimized for size of cookware, dishes and accessories.

A bit off topic, but we just picked up a set of Magma Nesting Cookware, that looks to be of as good of quality as our stuff at home (or better). Fry pan, stock pot, three smaller pots, two removable handles, and two lids all nest into one nice bundle. There is also a colander coming out right away that nests with the set. We can now leave a few serving bowls behind too. We haven't even used them yet, but sure are looking forward to. I will do up a bit of a review then.

That cookware looks real nice, but I'd feel I would have to use them which means work. Just call me Maynard G.

I see a "Teflon" logo. Does that mean they are non-stick?
Despite my best efforts, I go through any non-stick pan in about 4 months.

LOL... Yes, effort is required to use them.

They are coated. We have lots of Teflon coated cookware that has lasted many years. My backcountry cookset has seen tons of use (and abuse) over the last 10 years, and is still working great.

At home we have a couple nice cast iron pans, but they are too heavy and cumbersome to bring in the trailer.

Cookware Alternative

The Magma comes in regular stainless, look on Amazon. We bought a cheaper alternative in Stansport, also at Amazon that works great for a whole lot less.

Jim, these look great.
Did you find these locally?
If not where did you buy they?

Thanks

Ian, I bought them from at Binnacle - your online marine store. They had them on sale ($30 off). Shipping is free.

MAGMA NESTING COOKWARE SET 10 PIECE TEFLON COATING Binnacle.com

Magma has good quality stainless BBQ's too. It was a consideration when I was looking, though preferred the Dickinson Spitfire 180 for specs and size.
