ID:	233361 Deciding which glassware to keep and use for Fulltiming. when we downsized for selling our B &S we put the good stuff into the kitchen to use for everyday, what were we saving it for?!. It is lighter weight and a bit fragile but much nicer to drink out of an adult glass. Then there are the parents Longchamps complete set of everything which is only thing I kept of their stuff. It is heavier duty and actually leaded crystal. So it can only be hand washed..and we will no longer have dishwsher. See attached photo

Want to continue to drink out of the better pretty stuff (again it is about not saving for only special just use it or get rid of it) and if it gets broken no biggie. But which to choose to keep and use in the RV for our new life adventure?. (a limited number of course). I am ok on how to keep safe while driving, it is which type of the 2 choices I have.

Opinions or advice please. Hope I attached correctly. Appreciate help with this silly thing.

I'm not sure that that answers the OP's question. I too am looking for suggestions. We tend to go through a lot of glasses but it isn't necessarily while traveling. Maybe they just make glasses cheaper these days but most times they simply break while the DW is hand washing them.

We started out with plastic glasses but they get cloudy and look dirty even when clean. Is there anything like Corelle for glassware?

I use red Solo cups. Or whichever brand is readily available, but always go with red. Other colors are abominations.

Real glassware is just too fragile for me. If you're looking for something more permanent, go with plastic or porcelain of some kind.

We carry real glassware for the times we go to rallies or want a real drink. For campfires, general friends etc, I use my trusty steel tumbler or the insulated Solo cup. For some reason, box wine is fine in whatever you want to drink it out of, but when you get more expensive stuff, you gotta have glass. Same with Scotch, Whisky (Scottish), etc
