Here’s how the Currys extend their RV counter space with dish mats

Maximizing space inside an RV is Job #1 for every RVer. No matter what size RV we have, we can all use more room. So we look for ways to make that happen, especially in the kitchen.

Many of you are familiar with Mary Jane Curry. Mary Jane is our RV Recipes writer for the blog. You know her from the wonderful recipes she posts on the blog each week.

She uses dish mats!
