I have all three. Paper, plastic and stoneware. Paper because when my aunt passed away, she had a small pack which I took. Use it in the microwave sometimes. I have a 4 place setting of plastic which is a holdover from when the kids were small and we had a slide-in camper (I don't know why I still keep it, nostalgia?) and the final is 'retired' from house a mostly complete set of stoneware. I don't mind doing the few dishes that two of us use. I prefer the durability of stoneware, ability to cut meat and not score plastic or rupture paper. I have a plate rack that keeps the plates on their edge, slanted, non-skid shelf liner is the only 'cushion'. We use glass glasses, stoneware mugs/cups. These are inexpensive, especially the coffee mugs which are accumulated freebees from various events and activities. Tableware is stainless. I have some plastic spoons and forks left over from some group activity. These and paper plates will not be replaced when gone. (Should just toss them out, and donate the plastic set to some charity...Lithuanian heritage, just can not bring myself to do it.)

We have a set of Corelle, stainless eating utensils. We have regular wine, juice and drinking glasses along with stone coffee mugs. We also carry paper plates and some styro foam items. We use whatever setting the occasion calls for. Paper and styrofoam work great in the microwave for quick warm ups, and for sandwiches and snacks while traveling.

We use real china and real wine glasses. We have rubber plate separators and keep the wine glasses in a wine box lined with foam. No breakages in over 2 years of fulltime RVing! We do have paper plates that we use on occasion (mostly while boondocking), but we prefer to use the real stuff.

Since we have a TT and weight is a consideration, we use both paper and the better plastic plates. But we do have two microwavable soup type bowls and two MWable plates. We have real ss silverware but use a lot of plastic when possible. The more lightweight disposable things the better... the graywater tank wont fill as fast and the weight can be used for food or clothing.

We have a set of dishes we have used since the late 70's, some kind of hard plastic things that must be just about indestructible. We rarely use paper plates but we do have plastic glasses but carry real glass wine and cocktail glassware. The silverware we use has also been in rv service since the 70's. The plates and silverware survived many years of camping with our children and will more than likely outlast us.
