Sink Drain Strainer

June 24, 2014

A simple upgrade that costs less than $1. Purchase a small plastic strainer to fit into your popup camper’s sink. This prevents food from getting stuck in the discharge pipe, which could both clog up your plumbing and attract animals.

I even bought a few extras to keep in the camper in case one goes missing.

I've been camping regularly since I was a kid, from quick Cub/Boy Scout trips to week-long backpacking trips and everything else in-between. We got a popup camper when our kids were 1 and 3 years old to enjoy more time outdoors together alongside a few conveniences like heat and running water. Since then, we've spent over 75 nights together as a family in our popup camper. I've learned a lot about the intricacies of a popup tent camper during this time and love to share those lessons here for the benefit of others.
