47 RV Kitchen Supplies | Free Printable Checklist


47 RV kitchen supplies and staples to pack for your next camping trip. Plus 3 free printables to keep you organized.

Going camping for a long weekend should be stress free and packed full of fun. But having to think of all the RV kitchen supplies and staples you need for your home away from home, can be overwhelming.

Not to mention packing for yourself, your kids and your pets. For me, it’s a full three days of mental checklists and piles of supplies that accumulate around the house.

After a few trips it gets a little better but, without fail, something is always left behind. Last time it was a lighter for the fire and half our pantry staples for the trip were left in the pantry. Ooops.

Follow me on…

After eating beef stew with nearly no stew and almost no vegetables, it was time to create a checklist. Because we have enough to think about and, honestly, a mental checklist before and a half put together house after, is not going to be our normal routine.

RV Kitchen Supplies

Maybe your RV or travel trailer came with a few essentials such as a trash can and utensils. But if it didn’t, you’re going to need to get a few things to keep in the camper.

Keep on hand – Checklist

  • Paper towels

  • Bowls
  • Cups/mugs
  • Water bottle

It’ll stop you from over packing but also give you enough staples for even a simple meal such as scrambled eggs and toast, french toast, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches- you get the idea.

We love to do a lot of our cooking outside, but sometimes you might hit a little rain. Be sure to add a meal or two that doesn’t need to be cooked over a fire.

We’ve been to a few campgrounds now where grocery stores are not very close by. So as nice as it would be to just drop by the store on your way, it might be a tad more out of the way than you think for a simple weekend.

And even if you do decide to shop on the way, it’s nice to have a list to keep you on track. With products in different locations or things in short supply, it’s a lot to keep organized in your head.

Staying organized is a must when living in a small space. As much as it would be nice to pack everything, the pantry and fridge in a camper is only so big. Keeping a meal plan and checklist close and printed out is one step to actual stress free camping.

Now for the really hard question…. What’s for dinner?
