Definitely interested in seeing what you found at ikea. We just got a store not far from here.
There was a lot of stuff I passed over on my trip to Ikea because I didn't really have measurements of the Cabinet space.

I bought this Because it folds flat if needed and holds a plastic grocery bag perfectly: VARIERA Trash can - IKEA

Then I saw this little bin and bought it as well so we'll see what fits better: FILUR Bin with lid - IKEA

I picked up this USB light since I have a few ports next to my control panel and will allow me to see things at night without turning anything else on: JANSJ÷ LED USB lamp - IKEA

I bought all my Kitchen Utensils there: Search result - IKEA and they're dirt cheap and well made.

They also have a lot of lighting products many battery operated LED lights that can be stuck in dark places, picked up a few of those puck style lights there for a couple bucks as well.

If you want inexpensive pots and pans that's the place to go! I picked up a nice set of three small nested pots with lids for $10, perfect for two people: Search result - IKEA

If you've never been in one, you'll be blown away by all the stuff they sell. And don't listen to anyone that says that it's all junk, I've got a complete kitchen in my house from them and it's as good quality as the big box stores at half the cost.

Mama,Awesome idea with the hidden toilet!!! Brilliant!!

I have a question, what do you do with the bags when it is time to get rid of them? We want to replace the porta that came with our unit (among other things, I am too old to squat that far) and one of those bag jobs might just be the ticket.

We already have a cabana bought for the shower that will do double duty as an outhouse so all we need to do is find a better potty solution.

Thanks! He's pretty smart so I think I'll keep him around lol

So these bags are pretty cool. There is a black inner bag that's attached to a heavier outer silver bag. Inside the black bag is a powder that turns into a gel when it's wet. The outer bag has a double zip lock style closure and the inner bag is twice the vertical size as the outside bag. So I pull the black bag up though the hole and place the seat over it. After 3-4 days it's not full but ready to empty so it's perfect for a Fri - Sun trip. When I empty it, I twist the inner bag really well and tie it into a knot, then tuck it down into the outter bag and seal it up. Then I tuck that into a small kitchen trash bag just for good measure. It goes into the trash with everything else. That part of it, I have to admit, I don't really like. However, we do not use disposable paper goods, plastic cups, plastic service ware, etc when we camp so I feel like it's a neutral foot print for us. We used to have 2-3 bags of trash but now we just have one after 3-4 days and it's rarely full. Hope that helps!

That makes me kinda glad my camper has a toilet in it! I used it a couple times on my first trip last month (so far the only trip I've done in it). I got some Thetford chems to use in it. Really helps supress any smell. Sure, you don't want to stick your nose in the open hole of the cassette, and it won't gag a maggot when you dump it... but inside the camper doesn't get any hint of scent from it good or bad. I dig the cassette toilet. I just kinda don't like the thought that someone else was doing their business in it before I got the camper! LOL


And Ikea is crazy awesome. I went in to the local one last weekend, and could have loaded my truck full of stuff if I didn't have any self control!

All good suggestions! Don't do too much too soon, as you may not want or need all the suggestions. I always have a small note pad for jotting down what I don't have and need or things I can do without. If you camp off grid a lot, a battery or solar powered weather radio is great to have. Make sure you know what county you are in as most bad weather reports are done by county.

A nice list indeed, the two hints I can contribute is to bring along a solar charger for house battery and a socket made to work with a cordless drill which will speed up lowering/raising corner jacks.
