What do uoy all use for food storage to keep food warm, like here bestvacuumflask.com? I normal just throw the big stuff in a milk crate and call it good, but after an ordeal with some oreos and ants I am looking for something a little more secure. Should I just go with an action packer and I am just over thinking things?

Double zip lock bags will keep the ants out of the oreos unless they are very intelligent and have a work party that force the zip lock open.

My RV has a pantry, but anything not in a can or bottle goes into a zip-lock bag or a plastic container with a lid. Keeps everything fresher and deters critters!

Good question, plus what are you camping in? A popup, a tent, an RV, a pickup camper?

When we use our popup or tent, all food goes in zip lock bags. If dry goods, then in a canvas carry-all. If wet, then in the cooler. Same with tent camping. In our FW, in the pantry or fridge, but in zip loc bags.

When we camped out of our cabover camper, there wasn't much room so we would pitch a small tent that would house our ice chests and rubbermaid containers. Dry goods in the rubbermaids.

Back in the days of tent, I bought some of the containers that have the hinged 2 piece interlocking top. I put sheet metal dividers in them. Closed, I would use bolts to hold them closed against 'coons. Flat to transport, or stack, stand on end the dividers are shelves.
BTW, when packing for trip, we bring into kitchen switch open packs for new ones I totes. When home, restock the totes before store in basement. In emergency we have food packed.

I often worry/wonder how the heat inside the RV while it's parked at home awaiting the next trip out, what that does to canned veggies and such inside the pantry. I know of alot of days that the inside temp of the RV has to be 100 degrees. Any thoughts?

I worry about the same thing so I wait till just a few days before and either keep the Fantastic fan running or keep the AC on. And I will wait to pack the freshest food last.

Our trailer is in the campground all summer and there are weeks that we aren’t there. I’ve found that things in cabinets on outside walls get uncomfortably hot. Our pantry is on an inside wall, thankfully. Food in the pantry has always made it through the summer just fine.
