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

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? 

However, if you're picky about your ice, you should check out our full list of 9 Best Ice Makers for Camping.

 3. Keurig K-Mini Plus Single Serve K-Cup

For those who rely on K-Cups but also want to save space while on the road, this model is the best coffee maker for RVs.

This model is designed for easy storage and is sized to dispense coffee directly into a travel mug. You do need to run off AC power for this coffeemaker to operate.

While you can use K-Cups, which run a bit expensive, this coffee maker is compatible with reusable K cups. So, you have the option to use your own coffee grounds and be environmentally conscious.

4. Chef Craft Travel Corkscrew

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! 

Turns out, I'm not alone. So many people forget to pack a corkscrew that is one of the 35 Little Things to Remember to Pack for Your Big RV Trip.

There are plenty of fancy multi-tool corkscrews you can buy. However, this simple, lightweight Chef Craft Travel Corkscrew gets the job done.

It's compact and easy to store since its handle turns into a safety sheath. Plus, it's dishwasher-safe if your RV has one.

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. It's a great kitchen gadget for boondockers!

6. Frost Buddy Universal Can Cooler

Drink cozies are okay at keeping drinks cold. Can coolers are amazing at keeping your drinks ice cold for hours! This is especially important when working next to a hot grill or smoker.

The Frost Buddy Universal Can Cooler is very highly rated because of how well it works and its universal fit. It fits all 12 oz. and 16 oz. regular or slim cans and bottles. 

This is one of two can coolers we recommend on our sister site, Camping Food Recipes, in a list of 35 Best Smoker Accessories & BBQ Tools for Camping. The list covers everything from prep & cooking tools to keep-you-cool accessories like these can coolers.

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.

It has a removable filter and is dishwasher safe.

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.
