Just bought a 19

We are excited about having purchased our 2016 E-19. We are first-time travel trailer owners.

I love having so much storage inside. Any tips on what we should definitely include in our kitchen supplies? And where it is most convenient to store these items. I'm curious as to what people put in the cabinet under the stove. It is not very deep.

We are thinking about using a toaster oven so we can do both toast and have an oven. Any that you recommend? Where do you store it?

So much to learn.

I just received word that my completion time for my new E 19 has been moved up to the end of May 2021. Yippy!!! We now will have some summer to properly give the trailer a good check ride before our fall trip.

New 19

I know you will have a great time with your new trailer. I have a very good friend who lives near Embarrass Mn. I have been promising to get up his way to see him. Maybe this year.
Best of luck with your Escape.

I like nesting pots, collapsible salad spiner that is also the salad bowl with lid. I have a collapsible dish drying rack Anything that is dual use. Juice container that fits in fridge door. I have a bucket with a handle that fits in the sink that I use if we are not hooked up for a week , so we do not fill the grey tank, we also use it outside if weather permits. I think a toaster oven is a great idea. We have an oven and microwave. Never use the microwave. After three years I still remove items and add items, but I am almost there now. You might not get it right the first time but you will figure it out. You are going to love it. Judy

If you use something at home, you may use it when traveling. If you never use something at home, don't take one with you in the trailer.

Our wall oven died - it took us two years to notice it. We never use the wall oven. The Cuisinart toaster oven is another story.

Microwave gets used daily. We have a spare as a backup in case the primary goes down.

So guess what. Our Escape has the best microwave I could install in the cubby, a storage spot for the toaster oven, and no built-in oven. We're happy.

We also love our Cuisinart toaster oven! We use it daily at home and take it with us when we camp with electricity. (We have a 17A). When we're driving, it rides on top of the bed so it can't fall, and when we set up camp it stays on the counter extension. The other thing that we really love when plugged in is an electric kettle. I got a plastic (light, unbreakable) one just for the camper. We drink a lot of tea and it also gets dinner going a lot faster than waiting for a pot to boil.

I'm not into Instant Pots but people do like to take a mini one with them. On one trip I swapped out the toaster oven for a mini crockpot, but the oven is a lot more versatile.

I've only had my 15A a short while. I've been pondering whether to actually put a microwave in that cubby. Not sure I would use it though. Or put a toaster oven in there (maybe a bad idea to put it there though...), might use it more than a microwave. I dunno... I cook very simply when camping.
