After living four years in our travel trailer, I came to understand that storage was very important. If it didn’t comfortably fit in the cabinet, it had to go. One item that was not allowed was a full size toaster. For such infrequent use, it was given away.

Growing up my mom and dad always had this sort of flip up toaster with us during camping trips. It stores flat and works on electric and propane ranges.


The toaster worked great for me while living in the trailer (260 sq. ft.) as well as living in our new house (which is 980 sq. ft.). It doesn’t take up counter space and handy enough to use a couple times a week. The toaster costs appx. $6, not bad, and takes about 5 minutes to toast 4 halves of bagels.
