We have a small wicker cutlery basket with 4 compartments that works good for us.

The people that design TT should be made to camp it a prototype for a week before the design goes into production. They should also be made to take there wives with them. After listening to their better 1/2 complain for a week things would be made better.

Now that's a great idea - especially the wife part but let's throw in a couple of kids and the family dog as well.... Just so it will truly be a real experience....

Those are what we use for storing silverware used in our outdoor kitcken.

Crazy isn't it? It never even occurred to me that there wouldn't be a drawer in the kitchen

When shopping we asked question, but learned a lot more the first night we camped.

What's the diff between a $15k tt and a $25 one? Everysalesman talked build quality and guess what? They are all about the same. Or siding, or slides.

Nobody talked about drawers ( we have NONE), mattresses (we have crap, the bunk mattresses are 'shot' after 30 days of use), water heater is gas only manual start and the pilot blows out if anyone in the camground sneezes our direction, we have NO light switches (other than the scare light) - we found this out at 1 am when one of the kids had to use the bathroom and couldn't reach the light - on the ceiling. Then we noticed all the lights are only switched AT the light itself.

I use clear tackle boxes. They work great because they come in varying sizes (length/depth) they are securely closed since they are lidded, store flat (or on their sides) and the interior can be compartmentalized to your specific needs - and they are waterproof, if left on the picnic table in the rain, utensils & stuff stay dry..... Was an easy transition going from one RV to another...just removed the containers and packed into new RV and we were set!

I do like Caper's caddy tho! Mighty fancy! Hee!

I would guess no drawers eliminates complaints of drawers popping open? At least there's cabinet space to creatively design one's own storage needs.
