Kitchens in RVs, campers and boats are tiny. We all know that. But that doesn’t mean we have to compromise by limiting our kitchen necessities. It also doesn’t mean we should have to constantly worry about messes made going down the road.
But, we as RV owners, also have other concerns when it comes to storage; weight. Since our fifth wheel has limited space and weight capabilities, we had to come up with creative ways to store our kitchen essentials. So, we’ve put together our list of space saving RV kitchen space saving storage solutions based on what we use in our RV galley.
I can’t believe it’s already been over three years since we took delivery of our Heartland Landmark 365. One of the features that sold us on the Landmark was the beautiful, large, fully-functional RV kitchen. The island creates a more ample food prep surface. Oh, and that big single farmer’s sink allows for cleaning large pots and pans. However, one little issue just grated on me that needed to be updated; our kitchen faucet.
When we find a product that just makes us all giddy inside, we find ourselves eager to shout it from our RV rooftop. This product review isn’t necessarily an RV or camper component or really RV specific. You’re probably wondering “why on earth would we do a product review on a simple coffee mug?” Well, the answer really isn’t that simple. Continue to read why we’ve rated them as being the absolute last coffee mug you’ll ever buy…
I was always a ‘stainless steel’ pots and pans cook; raised on it when I was a kid and brought up using them through all of my adult life. I loved it. It was safe and I feared no health consequences from cooking in good quality stainless steel cookware or cooking tools. So, because we moved into a smaller kitchen, I had to find an alternative that was compact yet big enough to do the job but had to be stainless steel.
Pulling our RV 5th wheel down the highways and backroads can get a little bumpy and cause a whole lot of mess if we don’t prepare and pack our cabinets and refrigerator correctly. We admit, we’ve had accidents early in our adventures like a jar of salsa flying out the refrigerator or boxes of pasta tumbling down at our feet from the cabinet when we opened their doors. It didn’t take long for us to look into proper packing tips for our RV trips!
So, we’ll share what we learned to save you heartache, headaches and money.
You’ve no doubt, seen a trend lately in RV upgrades. Everything is WHITE; walls, cabinets, textiles, window shades, etc. And we get that, its certainly a personal choice. But, in all-things-decor, its a trend that will change; whether it takes weeks, months or even years.
Improvise and adapt; a common military phrase when you start with practically nothing or something less desirable and we make it great. The same holds true in our RV lifestyle.
Living quarters in RVs and campers are quite limited. But that doesn’t mean our world or journey is. We love to be outside, especially when the weather is kind to us. So, instead of sitting inside watching tv or working, we relocated ourselves to enjoy the outdoors. That means, we need to make an outdoor living space or outdoor living room. So, this is our way of improvising and adapting.
Having lived in our RV for several years, we still are on the lookout for bathroom storage ideas and organization hacks. Storage and organization is an integral part of comfortable RV living and transport. We can’t leave, what we call, ‘gear adrift’. Everything must be stowed safely and securely. But, what’s even better is these storage hacks can be used in the kitchen or galley and other locations in your RV.
So, we put together this reference and resource list of…
We hope you’ve been enjoying our RV Interior Design and Decor blog series. In the past six months, we’ve been remodeling and personalizing our fifth wheel RV.. We’ve researched many different products that made ours a little unique than standard 5th wheels.
