Question Real dishes or paper and plastic ware?

We have both in our coach but when it's just "us" we use the glasses, mugs, dishes and silverware. If we have a group then paper plates it is. Less dishes to wash is always a good thing! What suits your needs best?

We do both. If we have plenty of water and enough dish wares to go around the wife prefers to just use them. Now, if it is large gathering we go for the paper and plastic. Now the coaches that have the nice dishwashers might not care either way.

We use the real stuff. Only time we use plastic/paper is when we are in a situation where we have to dry camp for a multi-day period.

We use the real stuff when it's just us but like Ken said if there is a big gathering then paper plates go around because we don't keep that many plates, forks, spoons, knives (you get the idea) in the coach.

We like our mugs and couldn't live without them! Paper plates create more trash but are great if you are boondocking and need to save water! We fulltime so the wife has her dishes! And I kind of like it that way.
