Outwell have brought out something called the 'Collaps washing base'
http://www.outwell.com/en/Products/CampingAccessories/Collaps/CollapsWashingBasewh........

It's like the collapsible washing up bowl they've been making for a few years now, but it has handles and a lid. The description says the lid 'fits as a separator inside the base' and that there's some kind of plate rack. I like the look of it, but I can't find a single picture online of the inside. All the pics are the same stock image.

Does anyone have one? Any chance of a couple of pics so I can see it in more detail? How are you getting on with it? I really want one, but it's a lot of money for a washing up bowl!

We've not got one so I can't comment on quality or functionality, just am wondering about the 'plate rack' spec...do you think the lid doubles as a drainer/plate rack?

To be honest, for 40 I'd want it to do the washing up itself

I think it probably is that the lid doubles as a platerack. I suppose it must be.

Monstro, you're right. It's silly money for a washing up bowl. I get a bit carried away with camping things!

I've talked myself out of it as well. Nothing wrong with our current set up (large, rectangular washing up bowl with handles, bought in France some years ago, which we stack stuff inside for travelling).

Sometimes, simple is best...

I suspect simple is probably best. We have two identical cheapo washing up bowls. Then can use one to wash and one to put clean stuff in, if there's no draining board. It works fine. They nest perfectly for packing, and we put stuff in them so it's ok for space.

Ah well.

Will just have to obsess about other camping things rather than washing up bowls!

I've got a rectangle collapsible bowl for washing up, got it from B&M. My Dad made a plastic frame to make it fit my wash stand.

I have been very intrigued by this but also can only find stock photos. I am a sucker for stuff like this to add to our set-up! We currently have a plastic box with a lid so that we can put dirty stuff in and cover it up to avoid attracting dogs/wildlife etc to our tent. It also makes sure that our own dogs don't pre-wash everything before we get to the wash-up station
