WOW, what a bunch of gadget heads! (said the pot, while calling the kettle black!) I would love to go car camping with you lot . I have a 10 foot, dual axle trailer that has gone from being a tool trailer when I was always working to a Dutch oven gathering and camping trailer. Among other things, it has a three burner propane stove, a two burner griddle for said stove, and a two burner grill box for same stove. A large GSI stainless steel perking coffee pot. A humongous assortment of cast iron pans and camp Dutch ovens. a pvc three sink wash station (made it from internet plans). single pvc hand washing station (same plans) An awesome Dutch oven cooking table with wind screen and lid/pot rests, a plastic bin of cooking utensils, another plastic bin of baking utensils, a bucket of DO cooking utensils....Oh shoot. I just realized your topic was CAR CAMPING, not TRAILER CAMPING!
Never mind.

Same difference, car/trailer its all the same. The one thing I find constant. The more room you have for gear, the more gear you will carry. Not that you will use more gear, you'll just carry more, just in case!

I too have a ton of Cast Iron cook ware, couple of Dutch ovens, 3-4 skillets (from 3" to 14"), and a couple of specialty cast iron skillets for corn and muffins. I used to bring a lot of that stuff, but this past winter I decided I was carrying too much gear and cut it back to the bare essentials. I have one ditty bag for the kitchen, which holds everything except the Dutch oven. Now I cook everything over the campfire and leave the stove at home.
