Ohhhhh, Alf!
You should always make extra for those unforeseen emergencies.
On another note, what does your camping schedule look like this summer?

I have suggested to Linda we buy a bigger trailer with a nice kitchen in it so she can spend time in there making my nice meals but for some reason she insists on sticking with the Boler. Even when I show her the nice window she can look out to see me enjoying the fresh air she won't budge.

Yes, but I always get stuck with the dishes.

We have a cover over the inside burners of our Ventura to make a very useful shelf. I tried cooking inside once and hated it - I NEED space to spread out in. We went back to the two burner Coleman outside on the picnic table so kindly supplied by the campground. Also have one of those canopy things that can wear side walls or bug screens as needed. Works for us.

One reason I wanted a trailer was so I wouldn't have to fight the wind while trying to cook outside on our Coleman stove. Of course we grill from time to time, but most of our meals involve some kind of cooking indoors. I admit I enjoy camping with my sister and her outdoor Coleman stove - she tent camps - but I wouldn't want to haul the extra stove and fuel canisters to be able to occasionally prep meals outside. YMMV, of course.

Sounds like lots of folks cook outdoors-
I do carry a tabletop BBQ that I use if we can't have a campfire...
I installed a tee like this one between my trailer tank and regulator so I don't have to carry a tank for the BBQ.
Of course, the 12-foot hose needs an extension if you're trying to BBQ on the picnic table...

I just ordered a 1,500 watt induction hot plate. I am planning on using it at home, but also taking it in the Scamp. The main reason would be for cooking outside when it is too darn hot to cook inside. Induction heating is very efficient, fast, safe(er), and I still get to use my cast iron! I got a great deal over at newegg.com... they have it on sale, then had a daily deal that brought it down from $99 to $59 with free shipping! UPS should be dropping it off on Monday... I'll report back as to how it works. I've heard good and bad reviews about this model, but the bad reviews were mostly about a whining sound when using thin stainless pans. No noise with heavier pans (like cast iron).

I'd call that a fair trade. I would much rather do dishes than cook.

I have a sinkful back at the camper waiting. We are in the hospital waiting for birth of grandchild. Another us of these great trailers - not imposing on children and their new baby.

Hubby cooks in our screenhouse that we use like an asking, so we can trade plates through the door with a minimum of wet. We usually eat in the screenhouse, even when raining.

Now it is. Soon...

We figure when she is old enough, she will get a kick out of the canvas hammock bunkbed of our VT. That ought to be kind of fun.
