I use bone china crockery at home and find it withstands bumps and knocks better than other types of crockery. Im thinking of taking it in our MH. Its also light weight. Has any one else used it whilst caravaning or motorhoming?

Only take that which you will not be upset if broken.

If you buy melamine keep away from microwave, it superheats.

We use Ikea ‘Oftast’ crockery. It feels like china but is quite light and according to Ikea “made of impact-resistent, microwave-safe, dishwasher-safe tempered glass.”. It has been bouncing around in our caravan cupboards for months now and we have never had anything broken. Best of all, it is really really cheap!

Corelle works for us, got a 12 piece set around 10 years ago in plain white, and not a single breakage to date.

Although don't get a set with mugs, as the mugs are just regular stoneware.

For mugs we use a set of Arc Corac, similar material to Corelle but a lot cheaper from Makro etc.

Corelle for us too, and just regular mugs as we’d use at home. We changed from normal crockery to Corelle as it is really lightweight but strong and no chips or breakages so far. Only slight downside is that the crockery doesn’t seem to hold heat for long, for those who like to preheat their plates etc, but then you couldn’t do that with melamine either.

Another vote for corelle, bought our set second hand and its great. We have ceramic travel mugs that have no handle and a silicone lid.

We use melamine plates and china cup/mugs, we don't have or would use a microwave, but the melamine seems ok with the dishwasher...…..
at least she hasn't mentioned them being a problem

Corelle again here too, expensive but worth it I think, can't seem to find mugs but that's no hardship at all, plenty china ones to choose from.

We've used IKEA Oftast for 4 years and never had to replace any item. Light, thin, plain white and really durable. Only 50p an item and you choose each item separately.

Thanks to every one for taking the trouble to reply. You have given me some alternative ideas if I decide not to take bone china crockery

We still use our melamine plates (hangs head in shame), we have corelle plates but they are too small. The bowls are ok. Cups also too small, plus one smashed to smithereens when I thought that they were unbreakable.
