Just to keep it simple, I'll just list cooking gear and appliances:

 

* Electric Deep Fryer

* Electric Rice Cooker

* Vacuum Packer

* Cuisinart Combination Food Processor and Blender (you can attach a base to do either)

* Electric Waffle Iron

* Small Cuisinart Food Processor (Only has a chopping blade, i use this one for dicing up stuff for cooking as it's an easier clean up when dry camping)

* 1 Oster 2 slice electric Toaster

* Large Stainless Steel Stock pot (Heavy duty base)

* Hand Held Electric twin beater mixer

* Classic style electric steam iron

* Pressure Cooker

* 4 frying pans, one flat iron teflon coated

* 1 large cast iron skillet

* 1 Egg Poaching Pan

* 3 Pots of Varying Quart size, starting at 4 qt

* 2 9x5 Loaf pans

* 1 Large cake pan w/snap on lid

* 2 smaller enamel coated round cake pans used for corn bread

* 2 non-coated round cake pans, used for small batch brownies and other things

* 1 Tea Kettle

* 1 14 cup Percolator coffee pot

* 1 large 14 cup thermos

* 1 Rolling Pin

* 2 Wire mesh cooling racks used for sitting baked goods on to protect counter

* 1 food grade funnel

* 1 large pitcher for making lemonade/kool-aid etc...

* 1. 3 cup clear measuring cup

* 3 cookie sheets

* 2 splatter screens of different size

* 1 large Lidded Deep Chicken frying skillet (used mostly for making salisbury steak, pepper steak on rice, things like that)

* 1 Roasting pan for cooking hams, small turkeys, roast chickens, etc...

 

That covers about a 1/3 of the gear in my camper.   There's a reason why I ended up having to put a dually rear end on the truck :P.   Remember that is only covers the large kitchen items, not the stuff in drawers, or the various gears stowed in the cabinets around the camper.

I only take about 4 o 5 of the items Matt takes along with him. I go camping to get away from all that stuff. But then I am not fulltiming like Matt is. Jim

One thing I have not seen on the list has saved our butt more than once.

 

 A water thief is a rubber fitting that attaches to an unthreaded faucet on one end and a common garden hose on the other. It is commonly used to fill fresh water tanks in campers when a threaded hose bib is not available.

That's in one of my three tool boxes I carry in the truck :P

I cant do without REAL coffee and I like toast and I like to dry camp.

 

So I went with a Melitta Manual Coffee Maker (just boil up some water in the tea kettle). I changed out the glass pot for a double wall stainless steel carafe. Totally unbreakable and keeps the coffee hot much longer.

 

Been using a stove top camp toaster forever on Canada fishing trips and find they work quite well. Light weight, easy to store.

 

Far too much to list here because I plan to go full time in May. But the cast iron dutch oven replaces so much cookware I wouldnt do without it.

I have been having fun following this thread and seeing all the stuff everyone packs around. Personally I carry a minimum in my TC, bare necessities + a few extra things like my camera, binocculars, and some reading material. My truck is another matter entirely. I carry tools, spares, chairs, blankets, etc everywhere I go, camper or no camper.

Skipper Dave, that is real coffee. I used a Melitta filter holder and a vacuum bottle thermos for longer than I care to admit. About 4 years ago I found a Nissan french press. Instead of being glass like mist presses, it is a 34oz double walled stainless steel vessel, so it makes 3 mugs of coffee and keeps it warm. Makes great coffee, and I am really spoiled by it. Pretty rugged too. It once was thrown from the overhead and struck the edge of the table. I carries a permanent crease on the outside, but still makes a delicious cup-o-joe

Yes I know, one of the guys at work has quit smoking coming on two years this Feb.and convinced his wife to almost one year.
Loves his Budweiser, but never drank coffee in his life, go figure.

Rusty I love food too much, and the food channel does not help, need to go camping to get away from that visual temptation.
Just say no to Gluten!

Addicted to Mexican Train when we camp, so a box of double twelve dominoes comes along, a pizza pan for making home made bbq chicken pizza loaded with shredded cheese and veggies.

 

A giant 15 inch TV on it's stand, it will sit almost anywhere.  And next trip we are taking a 1000 mW wifi extender too.  A xoom tablet and an 18 inch widescreen laptop, dvd watcher if needed.

 

We pay close attention to the compass in the truck when we look at sites so we can get the orientation right so Bobbi the feline fuzz ball gets a proper sunbath in the bedroom window as often as she can.

We almost never camp in places that we pay for or that have electricity so that narrows things down a bit ( we do have a generator).  My Wife loves to cook over a campfire so we have a special homemade folding grate and a good flat skillet for outdoor cooking.  In Western Colorado, where we live, I'm never without my coyote calling gear.  Spark the JRT always comes, he'd be real mad if he got left home.

I bet they would have fun, she loves nothing more than running ... just running!  Now that I see Spark standing, he looks like he is built for speed too, and he is probably a good bit taller than Lily.
