I wish....

I wish that companies would make rv appliances made for rv's. Compact coffee makers with ss carafes, that make 6-8 cups and take up little counter space, small toaster ovens and microwaves that take up little space. All the little appliances would work off 110v or 12v automatically. It seems we are constantly adapting residential appliances from our home to that being on the road and most are too big. I do not need a 12 cup coffee maker with a glass carafe in my trailer!!!

I wish that there was somehow a way to coordinate rallies so that a person who is planning to travel 2-4 weeks could attend a several rallies in progress while en-route. This may seem hard to do since most rallies are on weekends. There are rallies in April on the east and west coast, in May, likewise west and east coasts , in June in one in British Columbia, in July one in Labrador and I'd like to attend all of them rather than just one

What are some of your wishes.......

I wish I had a camper! But after I get one, I plan to take a Keurig coffee maker wherever we go....hot water, coffee, apple cider and hot chocolate on demand!

Two French presses and a Sanyo Microwave here. Gain a bit here; loose a bit there.

I wish our UHaul VT was a bit wider down the middle inside. There's not enough room to pass my spouse since the sink/stove/counter come out so far. (Of course, maybe I should just wish that I was skinnier!)

El Gordito (the little fat one) provides a siding for the slashby. It is called the shower.

I wish I could work for 3 months and travel for 9 months. I wish my trailer were like the "tardiss" on Dr. Who, so small on the outside as to only reduce mpg's a smidgen, yet so large inside that I could have several rooms. I wish I had a collection of trailers and tugs... which one do I want to take on this trip? And I wish there were more camping places in the faraway empty boonies, with good paved roads leading to them, and yet secluded so that the nearest neighbor would be miles away.

They are called stove top percolators. Work fairly well.

That was one thing we didn't like about the VT we looked at, it felt narrow inside. Our wish is for a safe trip south for you two, and that you can fit in a visit with us. And of course a successful elbow repair and speedy recovery.

Hey, You've seen the cavernous inside of Snoopy's Doghouse...And he still sleeps on the roof.
Some of us are never satisfied!

If our trailers had central vac suction system, dishwasher not the husband. I have seen 12 volt appliances that work ok but not fast like 110v.

Yup! I use the coffee pot my parents got at their wedding 57 years ago. I traded it off my mother for a new cable for her dvd player...it sat for years dusty in her basement and I use it just about everyday!

I wish for more $$ so we could camp more often and stay longer,

Oh wait, my daddy always said " if you wish for money or something that cost money,Always wish for it to be TAX Free because if you don't you waste more than half your wish!" Growing up I never understood that,but because "Daddy said" I did always add the Tax Free to my wishes.....needless to say I well understand it now....LOL!

OH well HAPPY Camping to all and to all a good night!

I've got a little Cabela's SS stove top percolator that stays in the camper to use when I don't have shore power. When hooked to shore power, I use the little 4 cup Mr Coffee electric drip brewer. For the life of me though, I can't get "good" coffee out of the percolator. It always comes out too strong for me. I have found that adding a paper filter in the basket helps, but it still seems too strong. I guess I'm still brewing too long.
I will say the Cabela's pot is quality made, and keeps the coffee warm for quite a while after brewing.

As for Jim's original question, what I wish for.... I kinda wish I was not so in love with these two little new Arabian mares we got recently. They are taking so much of my time, they are cutting into my camping trips !

Well the secret with good perked coffee is the ratio to coffee grounds and how long to perk. My pot, which makes 2 "real cups of coffee lol" is 3 scoops and 10 minutes perking time. The longer you perk it the stronger it is....but then it runs through you like battery acid lol... but it is cleansing lol
