we just use plastic cups, plates bowls etc

we did try the correlle ones, didnt like
had the enameled steel, too heavy
even had old US Army issue Bakerlite dinner sets........meh, broke a plate
china gear - broke a plate...... gone from van
paper plates and bowls lasted about 3 years, I got sick of taking the trash out every day while camping because of fly's etc

Hi,
we use melamine and plastic. They are very light and we don't have to worry about storing them so they don't break.
They do scratch easily, but they are so cheap we will replace them when they look too scruffy.

The cheapest and lightest ones are in the $2 shops.

We have two glasses we use for water, wine, cider etc and keep them in foam stubby holders to protect them from breaking.

We also have a couple of enamel plates for using with raw meat.

cheers
Mike

Please keep experiences like this To yourself I can not handle shipping for bloody cushions
Cushions for looking at (don't ever put your head on these "display ones)
Round cushions
Square cushions
Rectangular cushions
Different texture cushions
You get my drift

just remind her that EVERYTHING needs to have 2 or more uses, and you are weight limited to tow............
