RV Tips and Tricks: Outfitting the Kitchen

IMG_3823

When we bought our travel trailer, we decided that in order to get the most use out of it we would implement what we call “minimal trip prep”. Minimal trip prep for us meant outfitting the trailer with everything we needed so we wouldn’t have to pack or unpack every time we went camping. Now, with the RV completely outfitted, all we have to do is throw a few clothes in the closet, round up our food, and hit the road. Hopefully, by seeing how we roll, you will be able to do the same!

Here is a list of the basics that we keep in our RV kitchen:Image result for Grayline plate racks

Dish drying mat (we tried using a plastic dish drainer, but we found this to be much easier and it definitely takes up less space)
