Here at our Pennsylvania area RV dealership, we know that one of the best parts of traveling in your motorhome is having a full fledged kitchen along for the adventure. Whether you’re cooking inside your RV or roasting dinner over a campfire at your campsite, nothing beats having a fridge, appliances, and storage for containers and spices along for the ride. After all, a fresh cooked meal beats a pre-packed snack any time!
One unfortunate side effect of a mobile kitchen, though, is that constantly being in motion can make a mess of things. From spilled containers in the fridge to scrambled cupboard contents, winding roads aren’t exactly conducive to an organized kitchen. Fortunately, the Dylans RV team has some great hacks to help you keep things in order.
Coordinate Your Cookware
Having pots, pans, and storage containers handy is an obvious benefit of having an RV, but it’s not much help if they’re all flying around in your cabinets–not to mention the noise while driving! For starters, we recommend getting a pots and pans set that nests together (where smaller pots fit inside larger ones). This helps you maximize your space. Additionally, buying a gew plastic trays or tubs can help you limit how much they move around inside the cabinets. A tub for your spice containers is practically an essential. We recommend getting square containers, as round ones end up wasting valuable space.
Another great extra is to buy a few tension rods, the kind you’d usually use for curtains. You can size them to fit in your cabinets and act like dividers to keep things from moving around.
Restructure Your Refrigerator
There’s nothing worse than opening the fridge to find spills inside, so we sure to secure things as best you can. Tension rods can work for this, too; just pack things toward the back, then place a tension rod across the front. Don’t forget to take advantage of the drawers, too.
Pick Up in the Pantry
Dry goods tend to be stored on shelves in the pantry, and once again your main goal should be keeping things from tumbling around. A good place to look for organizers for this area is in the office section of a department store. Boxes intended for file folders, mail, or photographs come in many different shapes and sizes. With a little luck, you’ll spot the perfect combination for keeping the pantry in your new RV from our Pennsylvania area dealer nice and neat.
