It’s that time of year again. You know, when the resolutions are fizzling out and you’re looking to channel your energy elsewhere. Don’t get discouraged! It’s the perfect opportunity to check off a few boxes on the ol’ RV checklist before the season kicks into high gear.
I say start with the RV kitchen and RV living room. After all, the kitchen is the heart of any home and, when it comes to an RV, the living room is just an extension of that sentiment. Check out these 12 must-have kitchen and living essentials that will easily take your RV from last season to next season.
RV Kitchen Essentials
Omnia Stove Top Oven Exclusive Starter Kit
Where to start? With the Omnia Stove Oven Exclusive Starter Kit, it’s obvious. Baking is a breeze with these convenient cookware accessories designed specifically for life on the road.
The kit includes the Omnia Stove Top Oven, Silicone Mold, Baking Rack, Muffin Ring, and a storage bag. This is the absolute perfect set to use when RVing or camping and cooking on the go without access to a conventional oven
Granite Stone Stackmaster 10-Piece Cookware Set
When space is limited in the kitchen, it’s wise to opt for items that don’t take up more than necessary. Save space with Granite Stone Stackmaster 10-Piece Cookware Set that lets you easily stack and nest the pots and pans to get the most out of your cabinets. Triple-coated with an ultra-nonstick cast texture that doesn’t need to be pre-seasoned, it’s perfect for that Roasted Red Pepper Hummus you’ve been wanting to make.
Thinstore Collapsible Storage Bowls
Not that leftovers are ever an issue after a good party, but stocking up on food storage containers just in case never hurts. The Thinstore Collapsible Storage Bowls are perfect for prep before or for any leftovers after. Each bowl comes with its own leak-resistant lid and they’re all dishwasher safe.
Robert Irvine 8-Piece Microwave-Safe Prep Bowl and Lid Set
You’ll feel like a world-class chef with this 8-Piece Microwave-Safe Prep Bowl and Lid Set from Robert Irvine. Four bowls with four matching lids that have built-in vents to allow steam to escape while in use will have you cooking like a pro. Not only are they microwave-safe, but they’re also safe for the dishwasher and freezer as well.
Gourmet Edge 2-Quart Air Fryer
If you’re in the small group of people still pushing through their New Year resolution of staying healthy, then you’ll want to grab one of these Gourmet Edge 2-Quart Air Fryers. Not only does the air fryer cook with less fat making your meal healthier, but it also does it quickly by circulating hot air at a high speed. It’s compact, too, so it won’t take up much space on your counter. Surprise all of your guests with delicious BBQ Dry Rubbed Wings.
Avanti Portable Countertop Ice Maker
Is there anything better than good ice? The Avanti Portable Countertop Ice Maker features easy-to-use electronic controls that let you select the exact cube size you prefer. Making up to 25-pounds of ice per day, you’ll have ice whenever you need it.
RV Living Essentials
Together Oversized Throw
After the last few years, getting together with friends and family is a celebration in itself. Keep that warm and cozy feeling going with the Together Oversized Throw. Made of plush 100% polyester, this oversized throw is large enough for two. Plus, it’s machine washable!
Canvas Shoe Pockets
If you’re anything like me, shoes should come off when inside the RV. Doing so cuts down on bringing the outdoors inside. No one wants the campsite on their clean floors. Implement a “Shoes Off” rule when hosting by using these canvas shoe pockets.
Designed to attach to a bed base, they can easily be used just outside the RV under the awning for guests to pop their shoes off and into a designated pocket for safekeeping. Proper RV organization is key to a happy rolling home, especially as a full-time RVer.
Camco “Life is Better at the Campsite” Scrub Rug
For those who prefer not to take their shoes off, greet them at the door of your RV with the Camco “Life is Better at the Campsite” Scrub Rug. Perfect for trapping dirt and debris to prevent bringing the ground confetti of the campsite inside. The looped PVC material provides a cushioned step, dries quickly, and is easy to clean. And let’s face it, life really is better at the campsite.
Enchanted Home 3-Piece Ottoman Set
Double-duty pieces are the best kind of pieces to bring into your RV. Enchanted Home’s 3-Piece Ottoman Set is stylish and versatile serving as seating, storage, a footrest, or even as additional table space. The larger one has a tufted lid that reverses to a tray top, while the two smaller ottomans have lift-off lids, and both can be stored within the large one.
Kathy Ireland Easy Out Sofa
If the furniture is an item that currently needs upgrading, now is the time to do just that. The Kathy Ireland Easy Out Sofa is the ideal space-saving solution to open up your living area. Featuring a comfortable hidden bed, the transition for your guests is quick and convenient.
It’s a perfect option for those times when someone celebrates camping a little too hard and needs to stay the night. It’s got thick foam core cushions, a durable, easy-to-clean cover, and a timeless, classic style. Consider this one a win.
Jensen JE5020 50” TV
I can’t discuss a must-have list of essentials without mentioning the focal point of any entertainment experience – the television.
The Jensen JE5020 50” TV features a high-performance LCD panel, 16.7 million colors, integrated HDTV tuner, white LED illumination, a dual-function remote control, and a mounting pattern to ensure mounting it is a breeze. Your friends and family might stop by to watch a game or two, but they’ll stay for the experience of watching it on the big screen.
