Motorhome / RV - A list of essential items for inside the vehicle

Inside our Fourwinds 5000 American RV


Having bought and sold many motorhomes / RV's we now have a pretty good idea of what is required as opposed to what would be nice to have.

This is a list of the things we feel are the basics for use inside the motorhome.  Obviously the quantity of some items will depend on the size of the motorhome, how many berths and whether you anticipate having visitors.


KITCHEN
Broom (handy when you are washing the outside of the vehicle)
Dustpan and brush
3 household buckets of different colours that stack inside each other  (I use one with a carrier bag inside as a kitchen bin)
Selection of pans, (good non stick type save on the washing up water)
Frying pan
A few plastic storage containers (a round one can be used as mixing bowl)
Set of wooden spoons
Plastic potato masher
Can openers (one always breaks or gets lost!)
Corkscrew
Ladle
Plastic Fish slice
Scissors
Sharp knives
Chopping board
Wooden board for putting hot pans onto
Set of Funnels
3 large plastic measuring jugs that stack inside each other
Strainer
Colander
Tongs
Cheese grater
Whisk
Cutlery (4 - 6)
Small plates (4 -6)
Dinner plates (4 -6)
Dishes (4-6)
Mugs (4-6)
Table mats (4-6)
Drinking glasses (nice plastic ones)
Wine glasses (in this case I do prefer glass)
Plastic table cloth (Shower curtains make great outdoor table cloths, are cheap and you can cut to size)
Rubber gloves
Kitchen hand towels
Tea towels
Dish cloths
J cloths (chux)
Scourers
Kitchen sink bowl
Door mat
Fly spray
Fly swat
Tray
Rolls of rubber non slip matting
Gas lighter with long stick


BEDROOM and BATHROOM
Pillows
Sheets, pillowcases
Duvet
Duvet cover
Acrylic blanket
Hot water bottle
Hand towels
Bath towels
Facecloths
Toilet brush

TV (check the amps used and try to go for lowest) We always buy one that runs off electric and put it through an inverter.
