Hi, Judi. My husband I use Corelle in our motorhome and we love it. It doesn't add a lot of weight and, with the non-slip rubberized sheeting, it stays where I put it. The nice thing about Corelle is that most places that carry it have it in open stock so you can replace pieces (if you need to) or add to your set-up if that's needed.

Hi Add me to the Corelle list. I love them, though we use paper plates too, the Corelle gives a nice homey feeling. I also have a few pieces of Corningware. I use the rubber waffel non-slip pieces inbetween the lid and Corningware. They go on the stove, microwave, and fridgerator, which makes them multi-purpose, so you don't need to carry extra pots, and fridge bowls. Happy Camping!!!!! Karyl

Theres a tent that hooks on the side of a van. Where can I find one? I have an 83 chevy van and would like the extra room.

One way to do it is to look in the main Camping World catalog (or website -- CampingWorld.com) for an awning called a "Trim Line" made by A&E. It is made in shorter lengths for vans, and attaches across the side with a simple awning rail. Then you also buy the accompanying screen room which has both screens and roll down rain flaps. Then you also buy some sort of carpet or mat to put down, and attach the privacy panel along the bottom of the van. The side panels can be held in place more securely if you buy the water -filled vinyl weight bags. It's not quite the same arrangement as a one-piece tent which might have a little bit better seal throughout from bugs, etc., but it has the flexibility of being either just an awning (with mat), a screen room, or an enclosed room. (I've never actually seen a tent for sale as you describe.) The Trim Line awning/screen room combo will cost about $300- $400, depending on the size. Plus add a bit more for the mat and weights if you want. The other company that makes a similar product is Carefree of Colorado, the model called a Campout, would also work on a van. Carefree brand is sold only through independent RV dealers, not directly from the manufacturer. Theirs is only a little bit more money for the same type of awning/screen room combo. Most dealers that sell them have a pile of their free catalogs, so you can see the choice of colors.
Hope this helps.
