Must Have Items for Your RV Kitchen

A little organization can go a long way, and that’s especially true when space is limited, such as in an RV.  Check out our must-have items for your RV kitchen as you get ready to hit the road for another camping season!

Must Have Items for Your RV Kitchen

Few things are more fun than setting up your RV for another camping season.  Whether you are a tried and true road warrior or brand new to RV life, it is always fun to make your camper your own.  Add some decorations to show off your personality, add some convenient items that make life on the road a little easier and comfortable.  Make sure you have some simple RV organization to keep things in their place, even when you’re bumping down the highway.

Stocking your Camper Kitchen

Your camper kitchen is no exception to the fun areas you can set up before you head off to your next destination!

Of course, we didn’t start out with all of these items in our camper.  We started with a couple of them and then learned over time (and many nights on the road) what items were definitely must-haves for our kitchen away from home.  When we are on the road, our camper’s kitchen sees a lot of action!  From the morning pot of coffee (or two) to the bagels in the toaster to the Instant Pot on the counter for dinner, we try to cook as many of our own meals as possible.  This cuts down tremendously on spending, making RV life more budget-friendly than ever.

When the weather is decent, we cook on the grill for many of our dinners. When we cook inside, we use the stove top or the Instant Pot.

  1. The sink cover looks like just what I’ve been looking for. It would be nice is I could find out where to buy it. Can’t seem to find that information anywhere on here.

  2. We went to the Restore (where you can buy used building materials) and bought several oak/maple cabinet doors that are flat and smooth. Be sure and measure your sink openings. get as close to your size as possible, Having an inch or so over hang. Then we added little pieces of wood to the bottom to keep them from sliding around. Even bought one to add to the counter top for more space with fold down shelf brackets. Made another on as a stove top cover with long narrow board s attached to bottom to 2 sides to stop sliding. Cheap ($3 to$5) each. Shelf brackets from amazon. Looks nice.

    • I got a bamboo cutting board About an inch larger Than my home kitchen Sink, and added rubber non-slip furniture “feet” that fit snugly inside the sink to keep it from sliding around. Looks great; works perfectly. I imagine it would be easy to find one that covers the entire sink for the smaller RV sink.

  3. All those items look great but would take up way too much space in a tent trailer. I use an old fashion 4 cup percolator on my gas stove and toast on the campfire. I have been thinking about an ice maker though. Everything else gets cooked on a Weber Baby Q or the propane stove.

  4. if you have a two sided sink, make a separate cover for each side that fits on the lip. It will not move around, allows for using your sink without uncovering the whole thing. I used a thin grocery store bamboo cutting board, trimmed to fit for one side and a plexiglass (1/4 in plastic) cutting board for the other side, be sure to drill a hole to make it easy to pick up and for water from faucet to drain if it dribbles.
