We seldom use disposable dishes when camping. After all, washing dishes is part of camping. I remember having to scrub oatmeal out of my little camping pot when I was Girl Scout. That wasn't fun and I didn't even like oatmeal. For the teardrop, we have plastic plates and heavy duty plastic sporks with the fork on one end with serrated cutting edge and spoon on the other. My husband has enamel camping dishes and coffee pot for tent camping. When you think about, the enamel dishes are vintage, too.
My boss says she has spent the better part of seventy years washing dishes so now she wants to support the paper workers of America. She says a microwave, toaster oven and a campfire is the only place we will cook anything from this point on. And very little of campfire cooking will be in a pan as that is what sticks, pie irons, and grill baskets are for.

Antique stores have probably more of my money than my Shasta---(OKAY..maybe not but it seems that way)...We have been collecting era appropriate graniteware, antique utensils, percolator,old farm tools etc etc. over the last 3 years of our rebuild project...I think it just temporarily took away the pain from the build--- to shop and dream of using the fun glampy stuff!
Had to be careful of the purchases, especially the cookware and the utensils...It's all fine and good until someone gets tetanus?!
Im just sittin here watchin the wheels go 'round and 'round..ya know I love to watch them roll....
Hey @vikx! We have some killer thrift shops in our area, which I haunt for vintage goods for Foxy. I see Melmac of all shapes and sizes all the time! Post a pic of what you are looking for and I'll keep my eyeballs open for it. (A little payback for how helpful you and your manual have been in the fixing of our 1972 Red Dale It's usually @ a buck a plate.
Thanks! I have to tell you I don't camp. LOL. I'm a green person and all of this year's trailers are turquoise. No real reason, they came that way, sorta wandered in the drive way. (1963 to 1966) I'll study a while and see if I can find one that needs GREEN!
