My bigger concern is being able to cook while traveling, hence my want to put the crock pot in the sink (at least from what I have been hearing, that is the best option). We have a GFI outlet just a short distance from the sink so cord length shouldn't be an issue.

With respect to the crock pot liners, I'll add my +1 that they are great. Wouldn't cook without them. At first I was concerned that the plastic would somehow be tasted in the food. It's not at all. Easy cleanup, no plastic taste. Total win in my book.

I cook a lot in our crock pot while traveling. Makes life so much easier; less stressful and fun! When we stop dinner is ready and we can just enjoy each other’s company and relax. If DH wants something yummy for dessert it might be dessert in there and dinner might be something simple.

Mine goes in my sink but we have a large sink and a small one so it’s not a problem for us.

I often spay the inside of my crock pot with Pam to help make for an easier clean up.

Not all motor homes will need to run their generators to use their crock pots on the road. If they have an inverter then they can just plug and go.
My Sweetie puts the crock pot in the sink and and starts her beef tips and veggies in the morning as we leave, and by lunch time the feast is ready. The only down side is that sometimes it makes it hard to concentrate on driving because your stomach starts screaming for lunch!

We too use a crock pot occasionally while on the road. Be sure to put a bungee on to hold down the top. We put it in the sink and jam a towel in there too. I try to think what would happen in an accident or an emergency stop. You don't want to be hit with a crock pot or a very hot chicken breast. Nothing like smelling a done dinner while you hook up the coach. A cheap cut of beef taste wonderful after an afternoon in the crock pot.

We find our crockpot especially handy (I'm not sure on the size, it's an inexpensive Rival with removal liner that fits nicely in the MH sink, my guess is it's 2 -3 quarts) on travel days when you'll be traveling again the next day, don't want to get the grill out or even unhook the towd. It'll run on the inverter on the days when we don't need the generator for other reasons, like air conditioning.

I think if I were you I would replace my sink with a single basin sink so the crockpot would fit - or can you brace it inside one of the drawers? Especially with kids, don't think the smaller crockpit would work, and it never hurts to have extra in case you meet someone you want to invite, or you want leftovers.

Just sayin'...
