Going on vacation does not mean you have to abandon all of the comforts of your home for good. As many of you probably already know, RVs make it easy to bring your world along for the ride! With plenty of separate rooms, and all the amenities you could need from your ordinary home life, it’s no real surprise that the RV life has become so attractive to so many people.

One of the only problems with RV life, however, is the issue of space. An RV only has so much space. It has to be driven on the road, after all! Thus, careful attention needs to be paid to the internal space of an RV to ensure that it does not end up overstuffed and uncomfortable.

One of the areas of an RV that inevitably ends up overstuffed and cramped is the kitchen. Many of us are used to large home kitchens with lots of surfaces and lots of appliances and shelf space to make use of. Unfortunately, the average RV kitchen is relatively small, and thus it is necessary to make the most of every inch of kitchen space! But how do you do it?

Let’s look at some of the best kitchen organization products that you can buy today!

Abizoe 12 Piece Non-Stick Cookware Set With Removable Handles

Abizoe 12 Piece Non-Stick Cookware Set Non-Stick...

If you want to cook, you’re going to need just the right tools. You cannot go wrong with a set of sturdy pans and pots to allow you to cook up delicious meals no matter where you end up. However, pots and pans almost inevitably end up taking up a massive amount of space, thanks to the long handles that poke out and use up too much space! 

Abizoe’s 12 piece pot and pan set seeks to solve the problem of space-hogging pots and pans, thanks to the inclusion of removable handles! That’s right. When these pans aren’t in use, you can simply remove the handle and store the pots and pans separately.

It’s remarkable how much space this can save. Our tests of the product showed that we were able to save so much space and store so many more things thanks to the simple removable handle.

The pots and pans themselves offer a perfect amount of cooking space so that you can boil or fry foods to your heart’s content. And once you’re done with them, cleaning up is easy, thanks to the non-stick surface that keeps foods or stains from persistently remaining. Simply dip them into some soapy water, give them a scrub, and they’ll be as good as new.

And, of course, we cannot go without mentioning the generous inclusion of five extra cooking utensils, including various spoons, ladles, and spatulas that are made from stainless plastics, so that every step of your RV cooking adventure is simple and mess-free.

Pros

  • Contains a generous 12 pieces, to provide a full cooking set that is perfect for your RV.
  • The removable handles ensure that the pots and pans do not take up excessive space.
  • Non-stick surfaces across the pans, pots, and cooking utensils make cleaning hassle-free.

Cons

  • Only comes with one removable handle, so you can only use one pan or pot at a time.
  • The frying pans do not come with lids or coverings, unlike the pots.

Camco RV/Marine Sink Mate 12 ½ Inches x 14 ½ Inches Cutting Board

Camco RV/Marine Sink Mate 12½-Inches x 14...

Sometimes there’s just not enough space on the kitchen counters in your RV. You’ll be chopping away at vegetables, ready to make a delicious stew, only to find that you have more ingredients to cut, but no space to cut them. What do you do in such a situation? 

Well, with one of Camco’s RV Sink Mates, you’d have an instantly accessible extra surface to use. Simply place this cutting board onto the top of your kitchen sink to create an extended countertop surface.

Unfortunately, this cutting board only fits onto kitchen sinks between 12 ½ and 14 ½ inches, so you must ensure that your kitchen sink is the perfect size for it. If not, don’t worry, there are plenty of other products similar to this. Though, we feel that this is the best of all.

However, if your sink isn’t exactly the right size, you are not totally out of options yet, as the rubber feet that hold this cutting board in place can easily be adjusted to different positions to accommodate different sinks of very different sizes. This makes this product a great all-in-one solution for many people, though if your kitchen sink is too small for even the adjustable legs, you may need to look for other options.

If your kitchen sink is the right size, then this cutting board will change your culinary life. It fits firmly into place, and stays there as you cut, without shifting or becoming dislodged. This makes it much easier to keep all of your cutting in one place, while also still being extremely safe and durable. 

Towards one corner of the cutting board is a large gap, so that you can easily push scraps right into the sink, for later disposal. The groove that surrounds the inner edge of the board is also perfect for carrying juices and guiding them towards your sink so that you don’t end up with a messy countertop! We were truly amazed at how easy this product was to use, and how much space and time it managed to save us!

Pros

  • Allows you to maximize the space on your kitchen surfaces, to allow more room for cooking. 
  • The cut corner and grooves make it easy to dispose of waste while the board is in use.
  • Adjustable legs allow you to adjust the board until it is the perfect size for your sink.

Cons

  • Will not fit all sinks, so may not be a viable option for some.
  • Only comes in one color and size.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Organize My Kitchen In A Travel Trailer?

Make sure to place all of your kitchen elements securely into cabinets or drawers, so that they do not shift around too much, or risk becoming damaged. Stack things such as plates vertically, to keep them from moving about and shattering.

You might also want to install tension rods or similar products into your trailer, to hold elements in place even while on the move.

How Do You Store Coffee Mugs In A Camper?

If you want to bring coffee mugs along with you in a trailer or a camper, you should aim to hang them from hooks. You can purchase simple hooks that are made to hang from the cabinet doors that you can use to hang mugs.

This keeps mugs from shifting during motion so that they don’t risk smashing.

There are a few products available that can help with this. They often come in the form of baskets with foam-padded compartments to keep each glass separate and held firmly in place when your RV is in motion. This helps to keep them from hitting against hard surfaces, or each other and then smashing.
