A week from tomorrow, I will embark with my family on a cross country trip in the VW Eurovan Camper. The trip has long been in the planning stages, and outfitting the camper with everything we might need has been job number one. Coffee is, of course, a priority, so a lot of thought went into what we might bring along for the journey. The option we have chosen is the GSI 14 Cup Stainless Steel Percolator. I received this beautiful piece of hardware some time ago, but as often happens, my many plans for camping were scuttled, and only now have I finally tried the percolator out. On a few trial runs, this seems the ideal piece of equipment for the VW camper. It easily stows away in the cabinet below the sink, and fits well on the stovetop. The operation is simple, the coffee quite good, and clean-up is not a problem. Best of all, the stainless steel finish is one that resists scratching and looks like new after each use. I think this will be a rock solid addition to the long list of supplies in the van. GSI is all about the outdoors, and their product lines will fulfill anyone’s outdoor needs.
