We prefer a daily trip to the market to have fresh food. Ummm... It tastes way better.

Are you boondocking? I don't get it; you have a RV with a fridge, freezer. I guess to understand your situation we need to know what type of rig you have. If space is a premium, consider coolers with Dry Ice and frozen meats/veggies but other than that - unless you are just really out in the sticks - every other day food runs should suffice.

We have camped all over the country using all forms; backpacking, canoe, truck and travel trailer. Each had different demands and requirements. During our backpacking and canoe days packing light was a requirement as we had to carry all of our food and equipment.

An excellent book for preparing light good tasting food is "The Complete Trail Food Cookbook" by Jennifier MacKenzie, Jay Nutt and Don Mercer. The book has instructions on dehydrating food, home preparation, meal organization and recipes.

Mountain House makes some really good freeze dried meals that are delicious. We eat on these while hunting out west. Makes those 75lb frame packs a little more doable.
