The first time we tried the tableware bag was during our trip to Texel, one of the Dutch islands. We were at the same campsite for a week. That means that our campervan was parked on the same spot the whole time with its awning set up in front.
Installing the tableware bag is very easy. The only thing we needed to do was fasten two screws into the back covering of the front passenger seat.
The biggest advantage is immediately clear: crockery and cutlery are very easy to reach and therefore always readily available. It didn’t matter if we decided to eat inside the campervan or in the awning; we only needed to open the zipper and could easily get to our plates, bowls or mugs. We didn’t have to search around in the box under the back seat or in the side cupboard to get to our plates or cups! The tableware bag is always in reach because of its handy central location, but is never in the way because it is so small and right up against the front seat, so we did not touch it with our feet.
How much can you get into the bag??
For such a small bag we were able to fit a lot of tableware into it. We managed:
- 4 mugs
- 4 bowls
- 4 side plates
- 4 dinner plates
- 4 knives, 4 forks, 4 big spoons, 4 small spoons
- 1 whisk, 1 tin opener, 1 potato peeler, 1 breadknife, 2 wooden spatulas, 1 cheese knife, 1 pair of scissors and 2 cutting knives
Moreover there is also a separate compartment for a washing up sponge (figure z). In the inside of the bag there are also three small sections for lighters or other small items, which are easily accessible (figures x and y)
Admittedly, pots and pans still need to be stored somewhere else. But we can just about manage to live with that.
Is the tableware bag only suitable for a VW T5?
Even though the tableware bag was designed to fit into the VW T5, it is also suitable for other models. For example in the Mercedes Benz Viano the tableware bag fits rather nicely into the hollow behind the passenger seat (figures a and b). Unfortunately the seat is a little lower than in the VW, which makes it difficult to attach the bag properly.
In the Ford Transit the bag cannot be installed behind the passenger seat as it would block a ventilation shaft (figure c).
