Have you got all of the kitchen accessories?

One of the most appealing aspects of RV traveling is that it gives you the feeling of camping without losing your home amenities. You do not have to dine off of dreadful plastic or paper plates and cutlery if you bring your dishes, silverware, and kitchenware with you. They are not only more pleasant to use, but they are also more environmentally beneficial. You will want to consider whether to leave them in there when you put it into RV storage or whether you take them home with you.

Some of the accessories and equipment that you might want to kit your RV out with include:

  • A coffee maker
  • Cooking trays 
  • Pots and pans
  • Cutlery
  • Sharp knives
  • Basic oils and seasonings
  • Can opener
  • Bottle opener

Is your bed comfy?

According to a survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation in 2012, there is no place like home to sleep. In general, people sleep better and feel more at ease in their own beds than they do in a hotel or someone else's home. Fortunately, recreating it in your RV is simple, especially if you make it a home away from home.

First of all, make sure that you invest in a decent mattress. Some RV’s have standard-sized beds while others are more specialist sized, so you may need to visit an RV specialist. You also need to be thinking about taking good quality bed pillows and linen - with a spare set if you have the space to store them.

Even if you are switching campsites every few days, you can make your outside area feel more like your own backyard, making it more familiar and pleasurable for you and your family.

Check with the site first, but most will allow you to hang some sparkling fairy lights or lanterns, as well as small signs and deckchairs, as long as they do not distract other visitors.

Pot some plants

Plants can give any place a warm, welcoming feel while also helping to enhance air quality, elevate mood, and boost concentration. Getting some greenery in may help to open up a space, but counter space in an RV is typically limited, so you will have to get inventive. On the underneath of cupboards, use wall planters and hanging plants.
