    Greetings! As we have tried of going outside while our tours for toilets purpose that's why now, decided to install a proper campervan toilet. According to my husband, we should go with the Outdoor revolution Big Loo. Though I was willing to go with a complete toilet with a sound flushing system but in camper life, it is tough or impossible nowadays. On the other hand, we are also considering Dometic 970 as a toilet option. I found good reviews about it but we are a little worried because it will eat our savings. Yes, it is an expensive option. All in all, we have a variety of options in this regard but little confused which would be the right toilet for van campers. So, in this regard, I would like to hear suggestions, especially experiences from you guys. Therefore, just come and share your experiences. I am waiting for your responses.

    Greetings! I am going for a trip for a week in our newly bought camper van. As I am going with husband and my mom is not with me that's why I have to manage to cook food. My husband is also not good at cooking that's why I find easy van life recipes in this regard. I am planning to make Salsa kitchen because it doesn't need much effort and willing to eat it with Tortilla. However, here is a problem that we don't have tortilla presser and I found these tortilla presses here but I am confused between wooden and cast iron presser. What do you think would is the best choice for campers? And good at pressing the dough with less effort? On the other hand, can you suggest some good desserts that I can make with less indigents while traveling in van? You can also open to recommend other easy camper recipes. I am waiting for your responses.

    Greetings! Though we have 2 camper vans but we don't use them regularly. That's why we decided to give one van for rent and the other one, we are going to use for a remote restaurant where we are going to offer burgers and sandwiches. It would be a small startup that's why we are avoiding to make big investment. We have purchased one oven, beater and dough maker. Do you think we should also install an electric stove there or gas one would be more affordable? What other pieces of advice would suggest in this regard? Though we using disposable cups and other containers but to serve our special on-demand wine, I am planning to buy some special kind of glasses. According to my husband, we shouldn't add wine but I think if it is our speciality then we should add it for sure. However, to get more attention from buyers, I am willing to offer them special wine glasses and bottles. In this regard, I am thinking to buy wine glass sets from April Trading Store at wholesale rate. What do you think? In the same token, We have also installed a sink and over the sink stainless steel dish rack as well to wash pots and drain them. Do you think we should also go with a dishwasher? because we are going to use crystal plates to get the attention of buyers? However, as we don't have much staff that's why I am looking to go with a good or reasonable restaurant POS system and in this regard, I am reading the reviews of restaurant POS system from here. So, do you think as a static van restaurant owner should I go with a POS system? Or it would be an expensive deal for me? I am waiting for your honest suggestions.
