We use them at home, and never had one leak. I suspect that maybe the cold temps in the trailer causes the plastic to become brittle, and then it cracks or tears from the pressure of being vacuum sealed. But that is just a guess on my part

Just bought the Costco (Canada) box again this week. I've used these in my class B, motorcycle for touring and my sailboat, all of which have limited storage space. Works great for me, and I've had stuff in my boat not opened for at least 2 yrs.
Also use double lock strip or zippered Ziplocs for a few items, including some food items and just suck out the air as best I can. Helps some foods stay fresher longer, (cheese comes to mind here).
PS just looked the Costco box I got has 15 bags, 4 med, 5 large, 12 XL and 4 "travel valise" size. Dont' recall the price but it's cheap for my needs/uses vs the benefits and quick to use as well.

19.97 at Costco for the box you described above ... Great value ... One XL bag is about $12 alone at local hardware store. Try using a straw to get the air out of smaller ziplock bags ...

Straw idea sounds good for the regular ziplocs, never thought of that and will give it a try.

And yes I was aware the Costco box was a great deal, as I've on occasion had to replace a single bag at the higher individual cost. Maybe should have bought a 2nd box (I'm now thinking to myself, LOL)
