7 Best RV Kitchen Gadgets for All Kinds of Beverages

The following are the seven best beverage gadgets for your RV kitchen. I have included a lot of my and Jennifer’s favorites. 

For a complete list of our favorite RV kitchen gadgets, check out this RV Kitchen Supplies Shopping List that we compiled for your convenience.

1. Chillout Life Stainless Steel Wine Tumblers

I know many of us RVers enjoy visiting vineyards and wineries. If you fit into that category, I think you’ll really like these tumblers.  They’re perfect for when you bring a bottle of wine back to your campsite. 

This set of CHILLOUT LIFE stainless steel wine tumblers is highly rated for several reasons.

First, these glasses are nearly indestructible, which is excellent when you have them stored in a moving vehicle. They are made from stainless steel to prevent breaking when dropped. 

The walls of the tumblers are also double-walled. That means these guys will keep your drinks cold. 

They can keep your beverages cold for up to 9 hours, which comes in handy after a hot day of camping!

2. Igloo ICE26AQ Portable Ice Maker

When we first started RVing, one thing I missed from home was my icemaker. I love having cold drinks on hot days! 

But you must love modern technology. They now make portable ice makers! The good news is several models are compact enough to fit in your RV. 

One model in particular that I like is the Igloo ICE26AQ. 

This ice maker can make 26 pounds of ice in one full day. It can make nine cubes in seven minutes when you first turn it on. It’s an excellent thing to set up early when you park at your campsite to start enjoying ice right away. 

Another cool thing about this particular model is you can choose the size of ice cube you want. Many couples have different ice preferences. Who knew that was a thing? 

This ice maker has a 3-quart capacity and a fun clear lid to view your ice action!

3. Keurig K-Cup In Room Brewing System

My favorite part of the morning when camping is enjoying a nice, quiet cup of coffee. 

Keurigs are really nifty machines. This one is great for an RV because of its compact size. It is only 10 x 7 x 11 inches, so it will not take too much space on your counter. 

It is also only 7.2 pounds, which doesn’t add much to your GVW (gross vehicle weight). 

You fill the reservoir with water, set your cup under the coffee spout, and place the k-cup in the machine. Turn it on, and before you know it, your coffee is brewed. 

Another thing I love about making coffee like this because I do not waste any. I can make one cup at a time. It stays piping hot, doesn’t taste stale, and I only make what I will drink. 

The one drawback of this model is that it is not compatible with reusable k-cups. But did you know, since the end of 2020, 100% of Keurig® K-Cup® pods are recyclable? Isn’t that great news!

4. Drincarier Waiter Corkscrew & Wine Opener

When I started camping, there was one overlooked item on our packing list: a corkscrew/wine bottle opener. And boy, was it a disappointing oversight! 

There is nothing worse than picking up a bottle of wine or beer and having no way to open it. That’s why I always keep the Drincairer on hand. 

This wine key tool has everything you need to open your beverage. It has a bottle opener, corkscrew, foil cutter, and dual-hinge fulcrum. 

That way, you never get stuck with an unopened beverage when relaxing at your campsite!

5. GOGODUCKS Water Bottle Pump 

Do you like to take gallons of drinking water when you camp? If so, this gadget is for you! 

The GOGODUCKS Water Bottle Pump is a water pump that fits over the top of most two- to six-gallon jugs of water. You simply attach it to your water bottle, transforming it into a spout. 

You can quickly get water from your giant water jugs without lifting them.

6. Stainless Steel Coffee Mugs with Lid

Have I mentioned that I like coffee? Nothing beats the crisp, quiet air with a hot mug of coffee in my hand. 

That is why Jennifer and I love these stainless steel coffee mugs! 

We can brew a cup, then take it with us to sit outside and enjoy the quiet morning. The double-walled insulation keeps our coffee hot for hours. 

The other thing I love is that these mugs are nearly indestructible. No worrying about them breaking if dropped. 

I also love that they have a handle. That way, I don’t burn my hands when trying to carry them out with me. 

These particular mugs also come complete with spill-proof lids, which is perfect for bumpy drives or kicking back in your favorite camping chair

7. JoGO Coffee & Tea Brewing Straw

This stainless steel straw has a single-serve filter at the end. It provides all the delicious and robust flavors of French-press style coffee in an instant. Plus, it can be used to brew tea.

This zero-waste method gets rid of wasteful paper filters and coffee pods. It also serves as a teeth-friendly straw with a silicone tip, so you don’t stain your teeth or burn your lips.

Mike and Jennifer Wendland's Yellowstone Travel Guide

At the top of every RVers bucket list, it is a place so majestic, so wild, and so big that it calls us to return, to explore, to get to know the diversity of its land and animals over and over again.

Everywhere you look are waterfalls, fast-moving rivers, geysers, sheer rock faces, towering lodgepole pines, all framed by mountains under the bright blue cloudless sky.

It’s spectacular for those who love the wilderness and getting up close and personal with it. Enjoy Yellowstone for RV travel.

Just wanted to let you know about the water purification system by Berkey. They have a great Travel Berkey System bundle which has a great discount now.
We first used a Berkey system while volunteering for the National Parks where they had a unit for our water supply on Devil’s Island ( in the Apostle Islands, Lake Superior). We spent three weeks on the island and this was our source for drinking water.
