I edited the image to check off what i plan to take. :)
My camper doesn't have a kitchen, or wont have one when i finish the renovation, hence some of my choices.

i am up in the air on bringing a camp table... could just sit and hold the plates under my camper awning, or maybe just some sort of little table, or something.
i have a white-gas backpacking stove that packs well and the fuel bottles are easy to fill and transport.
just my take on things, as backwards as they may seem ;)

Since I am trying, in part, to convert to a battery powered induction hob, for camp cooking this year I decided its time for new (induction compatible) pans.

I recently got a pair of Shineuri removable handle pans from amazon (because handles always get in the way when packing pans).
NOTE; this gear is, almost certainly, too heavy for backpackers (I mostly vehicle tent camp)


...along with a lid, for 7 to 9.5 inch pans, to keep the splatter down (also from amazon);

Eye Wheel Automotive tire Tire Rim


... been cooking with these at home (on the induction hob and a regular electric stove) for about a week; and they work fine... the knob on the lid is too large to pack/nest well so I intend to replace it; folks getting a lid may want to consider one with a smaller knob.

Enjoy!

I like to travel and cook and find good stuff to cook with what is locally best (as in pears from Yakima and Strawberries from the Willamette Valley and muscles from Pen Cove, Crabs fresh out of the pacific ocean etc. So I have a pretty full list.
I have a good Jackery battery box thingy so I can use my Microwave and my induction burner. My family had some issues with gas as I grew up so no Gas for me.
I have .....
a small refridgerater
Small ice chest
1 microwave
induction burner
super small BBQ grill and bag of brickettes
BBQ tools long fork etc. Hubby's stuff
5-6 sharp knives 2 of which are steak knives.
3 wooden spoons
4 sets of silverware
a few serving spoons
4 plates real, not paper. Also, paper for those fast days.
2 small plastic bowls (Cereal)
2 mid sized plastic bowls, mixing and serving
1 mid sized glass bowl. Micro cooking
1 glass pie pan. Micro cooking
1 glass tea pot (fits in the microwave)
2 glass mugs micro safe
2 lidded glass soup bowls micro safe
2 plastic water glasses. Also some paper cups
1 small Air Frier, I can get 3-4 if small, muffins baked here.
1 tiny crockpot
1 water jug, 6 gallons
1 water filter pitcher
1 mid sized cast iron skillet
1 small sauce pan
1 smallish wok may not go this time not as crazy about it, but it works ok
Spatula
grater
1 whisk
3 cutting board sheets
potato peeler
my spice rack has 15+ spices and I carry 2 kinds of flour bisquick mix and at least 2 kinds of oil.
1 emulsifier/blender
2 sticks for the fire and 2 pie irons
1 reflector oven (I have only used once, and it really worked!)
I take 2 dishpans and 1 drainer for clean-up.
Oh yea and one bar bag for when we are done for the day. With one super small bottle of his kind of booze and one of my kind of booze and a small set of bar tools.
What can I say we eat good and I like to cook. It is all in the kitchen at the back of my van so I can work in comfort....

Cooler: camping time within 2 days, the general outdoor with a cooler can be, usually at least 1 day of refrigeration effect or have. The size depends on the amount of food that needs to be refrigerated.
Stove: It is recommended to use the general gas stove, the advantage is very convenient, and the operation is also very easy. The disadvantage is, of course, the gas itself, the liquid gas in the gas tank at a lower temperature, is very difficult to smoothly vaporize and burn. So if you are going camping in the mountains at higher altitudes, it is likely that there will be a lack of firepower.
Pots and utensils: A saucepan and pan will be sufficient. Tableware can choose biodegradable disposable tableware or heat-resistant plastic tableware that is easy to carry.

I, too, camp at higher altitudes (just below tree line), typically between 9,000 and 11,000 feet. The only time that I have actually encountered problems with propane at low temperatures is when it gets Very cold; cold enough that I consider leaving ...
The campfire makes a good(indeed preferable) cooking backup, IMO... there is always a cooking grate folded and stored in the top of the cook kit/case...

Enjoy!
