Space becomes of essence and a commodity especially if your camper trailer is a bit squeezed. With a lack of proper arrangement, the RV kitchen will feel so congested and may call for a concession.
Finding gadgets and accessories that do not take up too much space while at the same time providing luxury and conveniences in cooking, dining and cleaning utensils as you would enjoy back at home is key. (Well, let’s be honest here, doing the dishes have never been a luxury but after all, you have to do it)
Determining which RV kitchen accessories to carry with you and which to cut calls for consideration of other factors such as the overall functionality, efficiency, and safety. With that in mind, here are my 5 favorite RV kitchen accessories.
