How many have had thanksgiving in a truck camper including cooking the meal?

I have in a 10ft TC on a 3/4 ton Ford with the wife/kid and a dog..Went fishing at a mountain lake called Lost lake, then went down to the Salmon river for thanksgiving out of the snow..We cooked a big chicken because the oven was to small for a turkey..Stuffing and all the goodies..Twas a bunch of fun watching the jet boats tackle the rapids.


Sure. 1/2 a small bird fits in the oven just fine. While most of the campgrounds were closed we found one with the gate open. It rained cats+dogs all day so it was just the two of us in the camper playing games in the camper.

I hope everyone had a nice TG with family and friends.

I had dinner with friends who are living in their 5th wheel while they are building a new house.

They smoked the turkey and ham in their new smoker and both were delicious along with all the side dishes.

WE have done thanksgiving on the beach many times. USually made the turkey at home then did all the sides on the beach. Was great fun. But the kids got older and busy so its hard to do it now.

Not a truck camper, we have a pop-up. We always do Thanksgiving in a campground, outside the camper. We fix the full meal in Dutch ovens with charcoal and wood fire. While the 13+ lb turkey was baking in 1 oven did a pumpkin, then Dutch apple pie in another. This time we used 8 ovens. Only cooking for 2, so the ovens where not full.
This is the first year in a long time there where no strangers at the table. Most years, the day before, and while cooking I watch for people that look like they are spending the day alone, invite them to join us.

Every year for the past 6 we have camped over Thanksgiving. On Tuesday we make some fixings, buy some, and get a section of cooked Turkey from the local grocery store. This year we had: Delicata squash, garlic mash potatoes, rutabagas, sweet potato and carrot purée (with butter and creme fraiche), stuffing, roasted Brussels sprouts, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, chocolate cake, and of course turkey.

Headed out Wednesday and had a great Thanksgiving again (Ft. Casey state park in WA)
