There are as many different camping styles as there are brands of trailers. I purchased a FSC trailer because I got tired of packing crap in an out of the house and in and out of the tug. Throw some clothes in and some food and I'm off camping. Once I get there, grab the lawn chair and I'm set up. I see folks carrying double the amount of stuff. A stove inside the trailer and one for outside, lights inside the trailer and lanterns for outside. Wears me out to think about it. I gave up hauling all that stuff when I gave up the tent. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

We love to cook 'camping food' as my husband and I call it.

We just bought a 14' wide body Burro with a front dinette. I can hardly wait to take it out!

Probably near as many camping styles as there are trailers, let alone brands. As long as people are out and enjoying themselves, there is no wrong practice.

Pretty much seating and cooking are the only redundant features for inside and out on our trailer, as I am one to who believes in taking minimal gear. But, we do need a few things to outfit our 'living room'.

Of all the people I regularly am with that have RV's of their own, most of the do the cooking outside too. In fact, some of them never eat inside. We all tend to wander to each others spots and chew the fat over morning coffees, or eat our meals together even if prepared separate.

There are a few friends though, that we don't even see until well after breakfast. We only know they are up because they need to start their gen sets to use the coffee maker and microwave.

The whole reason I love a teardrop trailer is that I get a nice, warm place to sleep, but I still feel like I'm camping because I cook and hangout outside. When I suggested getting a trailer to my brother-in-law, he said, "Why do you want to ruin camping?"

Now, that he has seen my teardrop, he has changed his tune and is saving for one of his own.

I just got back from the Lake San Antonio Rally. We all had a great time!

The magnetic containers don't fall unless I forget to latch the doors. They hold a lot too saving storage space and you always know what you have for dinner.

There certainly are times when I really enjoy cooking outside.

You can see more pictures from this trip here

Beautiful pix, Byron! Are those "nesting pots/pans" in one of your pix? Hard to tell but was thinking about something like that for the trailer as trad'l pots/skillets take up so much room. If so, do you like them and where are they from? Probably have a removable handle right?

Thanks!

Melissa

I never cooked inside my Burro... I simply turned on the air conditioner.

But to be more serious, yes I cook inside, unless it's a food I want grilled (burgers, fish, etc.) Mostly I don't want to spend time waiting for coals to heat up so I just use the gas cooktop and/or the nuke-o-matic to heat up something quick. I'm not going to worry about heat buildup when I can turn on the vent fan and have a complete change of air inside the trailer in about 3 minutes. Yay for small trailers!

That's an MSR two pot stack, stainless steel. For my backpacking I've changed to a single titanium pot and the MSR pot stack are now used in the trailer. No handles to get in the way, a single "pot lifter" in the silverware drawer serves as a handle for the tow pots and lid. The lid can also be used as small skillet. The pots also due duty as mixing bowls for things like pancake batter.

Almost like staying home (except that you have a lot more conveniences and comforts at home!)

Seriously, if either wife or I had to cook while we away "enjoying ourselves", we just wouldn't go!

We tend to choose campgrounds that are very nearby a town/city where we can go for lunch & dinner. Morning coffee is about as "cooking oriented" as we get.
My wife and I totally agree!

Eating on vacation is always a huge hassle for me because I have so strict dietary requirements. One of the benefits of our trailer I that I can cook what I need without depending on special ordering at restaurants. It's one of the reasons I love traveling in the camper.

Jim, those are not CUP holders, they're BEER holders. NOW you are a redneck!

We use a small toaster oven for making the toast to go with our p-nut butter in the morning, and the stove to heat the water for tea.

We will heat soup, or chili, Spam on the stove. Spam can be eaten right out of the can. There are plenty of items in the stores that don't need refrigeration. We like the pudding or fruit in the little cups.

What are all those In-N-Out, Black Bear Cafe, and King Taco places for if not for taking advantage of?

Another tip, we buy a small vege tray for lunch. Makes a healthy meal.

Note to BCDave: We have spent about 6 weeks in Homelet the last three Jan/Feb's. Of course after 50 years, we have learned to accept each other.
