RV Kitchen Essentials You Must Have Before Your First Camping Trip

Sharing is caring!

One of the first RV Camping Resources you need is a good RV Kitchen Essentials list. By stocking the right stuff in your RV kitchen before hitting the road, you’ll be sure to have everything you need and ensure you have enough space for your other camping necessities.

Which RV Kitchen Supplies Do I Need?

First things first, let’s talk about which rv kitchen accessories you really need in your RV Kitchen.

RV Dishes and Accessories

Have at least a small set of RV dishes and flatware in your camper. I personally like to keep enough plates for each family member and some real flatware.

Pots and Pans

You only need a few pots and pans to cook your favorite camping meals. You should also be able to use them on a stovetop or on a campfire.

RV Kitchen Utensils

Included in RV Kitchen essentials are some necessary utensils for cooking in an RV. While we keep disposable utensils on hand for entertaining large groups of friends and family, I still prefer to keep a set of utensils for the family.

RV Kitchen Knives

You will also need to keep a set of kitchen knives in your RV for meal prep and eating those yummy ribeyes you grilled on the fire.

Collapsible Items For An RV Kitchen

The last items we recommend as must-have RV kitchen accessories are these wonderful collapsible items which are great for saving space.

RV Kitchen Appliances

As I am sure you know, the countertop space in the average travel trailer [and even in a larger Class A motorhome] is far less than the countertop space you have at home. Appliances like Instant pots are ideal to bring when RV camping.

Now that you know what to stock in your RV kitchen, its now time to choose what’s best? Here is a huge list of our favorite RV kitchen essentials that we highly recommend!

The RV Kitchen Appliances you DON’T NEED

  • Food Processor- Anything that needs to be shredded or processed can be done at home and stored in ziplock bags in your fridge or freezer.
  • Crock Pot– Your Instant pot will replace any need you would have for a slow cooker.
  • Table Top Blender/Mixer- Bringing along a handheld immersion blender with a dual mixer attachment will save you so much space. Unless you plan on baking a cake in your RV (which I don’t recommend), you won’t have need for such a large and clunky kitchen appliance in your RV.
