I hate those wind-up flashlights... maybe if I remembered to wind them to keep them charged...

Let's see.. for me, a good non-stick small frying pan. Easy to use on the gas stove, easy to just wipe clean, good size for warming things. (I'm not sure this is the best item but its one I like a lot.)

Teakettle. For heating water on the stove ...

Having a tea kettle facilitates coffee, tea, instant soup ...

... washing dishes, heating bath water when the water pump can't pull it or the water heater won't light ...

I don't know if it's THE best thing, but I'm a lot happier with it than without it!!!

Bottle opener And, if you don't think it's that important... just go camping in the sticks for a couple of days with a nice six-pack of your favorite beverage. You wouldn't believe the lengths I went to just to open a friggin bottle

Thats why I had my bottle opener permanently affixed to the side of the Boler

I agree with the non stick pan....

for me its the piece of carpet in front of the door to collect all the needles before they end up inside

A six pack of Shiner beer from Shiner Texas. (Twist open longnecks so no opener required)

Screw cap and/or pop top! (I doubt the cupboard fronts in the Campster would stand up to the old drawer handle/opener trick.)

Hold the bottle in your left hand with the edge of the cap on the edge of the end of the picnic table and hit the cap, quickly in a downwards motion, with the flat of your right hand. Works wonders.

In other words... Wack it a good one on the end of the table.

Flexible plastic cutting mats to use inside or outside. Usually come in sets of two or more and are inexpensive.

Donna the door 'catch' on your truck or other tow vehicle.....thats the 2nd best bottle opener around. I decent sharp pointed knife WILL also open any can o beans/s'getti. Screwdrivers also make good openers...

..back on topic, best camping (related?) item under $10?
1) waterproof matches!!!!
2) length of nylon rope
3) decent road maps
4) (...if possible) a spare can of gas or a bottle(s) of propane
5 (folding) camp shovel

Probably more in the $15-20 range, but the single most useful item I wouldn't go without: my headlamp (3-intensity white and red LEDs). Hands are free, and lamp always points in the right direction (unless you're wearing it backwards).
