Choosing a Refrigerator for Your RV Kitchen

Finding the right appliances for your RV is an essential part of creating the best space for you and your family. There are pros and cons to every RV refrigerator type. It all comes down to your preference. Two of the most important factors to consider are space and food storage.

Let’s examine all of your options:

Compact Refrigerators

Compact RV refrigerators are the best refrigeration option for the smallest places. They can fit right into your countertop for an efficient use of space. A compact fridge could be right for your RV if you're looking to only store the essential items and buy more as you go.

They are the perfect option for anyone who has a little bit more vertical space to spare in their RV and is looking for just the right amount of food storage.

MWSS, Inc. is a premier distributor of residential and RV appliances as well as electronics and RV accessories. When you first purchase your RV, you should assess your vehicle in order to pinpoint areas of improvement- from outdated appliances to defected electronics.

Designing a kitchen in your home is different than designing one for a smaller house for RV.

Comparing a Tiny Home to Your RV: Size, Kitchen, Appliances, and More

At this point, most of us are aware of the "Tiny Homes' movement that has taken over modern television such as HGTV or any other home improvement shows. The movement of tiny homes has taken off within the last 5-10 years, resulting in hundreds and thousand of couples and families to ditch their standard-sized homes to try out this free, no-strings attached lifestyle. The typical "tiny house" has an average of 100 to 400 square feet. The philosophy behind this social movement is to simplify your lifestyle and "live with less." This concept starts by only acquiring and filling your home with the necessities. 

A class C RV has an average height of approximately 10 feet and typically ranges from 21 to 35 feet in length. As you can see, there is a significant size difference of a tiny home compared to an RV. But the design elements of both are alike in many ways. For example, as mentioned, less is more. Condensing the elements and appliances used in your RV kitchen will reduce free space used for recreation, cooking, living, etc. 

Some of our tips for maximizing your kitchen space include:

You cannot afford to waste space with additional appliances that will sit and collect dust. If you are having a hard time deciding what appliances should be your "must-haves", read our most recent blog, How to Choose the Right RV Kitchen Appliances For You, for helpful insights on effectively designing your kitchen. 

Space is so valuable when you are traveling in an RV and condensing your kitchen tools, silverware, and decorations will save you counter-space. Installing taller cabinets and double shelving units on you RV wall will provide more storage space and keep your counters free for cooking. 

RV Cooking Appliances

You don't need the biggest appliances for them to efficiently perform and accomplish all of your normal meal prepping and cooking tasks. Small, compact appliances take up less space in your RV and still get the job done. One appliance that is a necessity while on the road is an RV refrigerator. Refrigerators are generally much larger in a home and have to be down-sized to fit within the space of your RV. One model we love for its features and functionality is the ASCOLI 8.0 CU. FT. 2-WAY RV REFRIGERATOR

One appliance that you can double up the benefits but limit the space it takes up is a 2-in-1 microwave and convection oven. Doing similar jobs, you will not lose space in your kitchen but reap the benefits as if you had both products. Another product you can double up on is a 2-in-1 washer and dryer. The 2-in-1 cooktop and oven is one that makes your RV kitchen feel as close to a home kitchen as possible. A brand we recommend is the PREMIER 20 INCH ELECTRONIC SPARK GAS RANGE OVEN, with a sleek stainless steel 4-cooktop burners. 

Don't be intimidated with designing your RV kitchen- with the right RV kitchen and cooking appliances, it will become the perfect gathering spot of your RV to enjoy food, fun, and further your camping experience. MWSS wants to be your partner in designing the perfect kitchen for your unique RV. Contact us today to learn about our services and premier products to transform your kitchen. 

Whether you're purchasing your own RV or just renting one for your upcoming camping trip, finding an RV kitchen that meets your desired cooking needs is crucial to the success of your stay. Without the proper space, appliances, and sizing, your on-the-road meal prepping and cooking can get messy and time-consuming. By choosing an RV that matches your kitchen preferences, you will end up with the best possible kitchen set up and ready to cook all of your favorite meals- hassle-free. MWSS, Inc. has a wide variety of premier appliances and electronics to design your RV kitchen into the one of your dreams. First, you must determine the type fo kitchen you are working with.

The Various RV Kitchen Types:

These are the largest RV types and therefore, come with the most room and well-equipped of any RV kitchen. Because there is so much room in Class A RVs, you can expect to find almost as many appliances as you would in a regular home kitchen. To conserve space, you may not add or have as much countertop space or potentially not find a dishwasher, but one can always be installed. All of the necessary appliances are available for cooking including: a refrigerator, cooktop, oven, microwave, etc. One of the ovens we recommend is the GE PROFILETM AND CAFETM ADVANTIUM® OVEN; enjoy oven-quality results two to eight times faster than a conventional oven.

Class B RVs are noticeably smaller in size than Class A RVs. However, they are still fully-equipped with all of the necessary appliances you need to cook on the go. Most class B kitchens do not have an oven, so as long as you are not going to be doing regular baking- this kitchen will work great for your daily cooking needs. Class B kitchens still have full-size refrigerators in them, like the HAIER 14.9 CU. FT. FRENCH DOOR REFRIGERATOR we carry. This model has temperature management and fresh food features, with plenty of bins and cabinets for optimal storage space.

Most class C RV kitchens are fully equipped with all of the necessary cooking appliances you want and need. These include: a microwave, oven, stovetop, refrigerator, full-sized sink, etc. However, some may not include an oven or downsize certain appliances to save room such as a mini refrigerator or smaller sink. If these are important features in your RV kitchen, you may want to upgrade, however, if you're only looking for the basics, class C will be a perfect fit for you.

Fifth Wheels are the largest kitchens available on the markets for RVs. They come fully equipped with full-sized kitchen appliances and all of 'extras' you want in your kitchen. Counter space is an added benefit in fifth-wheel kitchens that gives it a homey feel, different from Class A-C kitchens.

An additional kitchen setup than can be purchased/rented separately from your indoor kitchen is an outdoor kitchen. Usually featuring cooktops and a grill, an outdoor kitchen is the perfect addition to your kitchen for spring and summertime fun. Some of the best delicacies and treats can be made and enjoyed outdoors on your camping trip- from hotdogs to s'mores.

A major component of a kitchen transformation is the appliances used. Outdated appliances decrease the value and aesthetic of your RV.

Today we are going to share our top kitchen appliances and our tips on how to choose the right ones for your specific RV.

RV Kitchen Appliances: 

Rv Refrigerator

We have devoted an entire blog to informing you on "What You Need to Know About RV Refrigerators." From fridge fans to temperature settings, knowing the specifics of your unit is necessary before making any updates or changes to your RV refrigerator. Most modern RVs carry residential fridges in them, and the ones that don't should look into upgrading soon! Some considerations to think of before purchasing a new refrigerator are: what are the dimensions of your fridge space? (weight and height are a big component here), what does your unit operate on (gas or propane, this makes a difference), and what are some of the top brands Rvers use in their vehicle. At MWSS, we carry a selection of reliable, top residential refrigerator brands that are guaranteed to fulfill your fridge needs. One of our most popular refrigerator brands is Frigidaire, and the ASCOLI 6.5 CU. FT. 2-WAY RV REFRIGERATOR is one model you don't want to overlook. This fridge features a stainless steel door and handle design. Read more about the brands we carry here.

Dishwasher

Regardless if you are a full-time RVer or just indulge on occasional camping trips in your RV, a dishwasher is a handy appliance to have in your RV. Although, it is not the most common appliance in older RV models, it is quickly becoming a popular must-have. The more guests you have stay in your RV, the more dishes you are bound to have dirty. This is why it is a smart idea to install a dishwasher for cleanliness, to save time, and to ease your on-the-road kitchen experience. Some considerations you need to take into account before installation is if you have enough gray tank capacity for additional water waste, do you have the room or cabinet space in your RV, and picking a dishwasher based on the volume of water it uses.

Washing Machine/Dryer 2-in-1

No matter the length of your camping trip, it is wise to have the proper resources available to clean your clothes, towels, etc. while on the road. Camping can get dirty- which is part of what makes it fun, but dirty clothes are not fun for anyone, can smell up a small RV space, and leave you without clean clothing if you didn't pack an adequate supply. Having a 2-in-1 washer and dryer installed in your RV can save not only space, but the hassle of overpacking.

GE Whole RV Water Filtration System

Tankless water heaters are quickly becoming an RV "norm" in the states, originally making their way in the European market. Before installing one of these heaters, you need to speak with a professional and know the specific inter workings of your RV. Some information we recommend asking the specialist you choose includes: how easy is this heater to install in my RV (time, money, etc.), does my RV run on propane- because most tanks do, and in the case that you run out of available water, is there a shut-off valve in place to use? All of these aspects require specific information that determine if a tankless water heater is the right choice for you. One of our top water heating systems is the GE WHOLE RV WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM  which is certified to reduce sediment, scale, dirt, and rust in the water, appliances, and plumbing fixtures in your RV. 

Induction Cooktop

This small appliance is the perfect addition to portable cooking. Induction Cooktops provide instant heat for safe and fast food preparation. If your cooktop requires power to your RV electric rather than installation, you won't be able to use your cooktop in the case of a power outage. This is something to consider when purchasing your cooktop. Special cookware may be required to use on your induction cooktop.

Convection Oven/Microwave 

We all know and love the convenience, speediness, and versatility while traveling. A convection oven can be bought with conjoining microwave, or both units can be purchased separately. This 2-in-1 product will provide the perfect cooking appliances with the least amount of space possible. A convection oven uses air circulation to speed up cooking, boiling, and baking. Make sure you know the space requirements of your oven/microwave before purchasing to ensure it will fit in your RV unit. Also, buying a product that has at least a 1-year warranty is always a smart choice as a consumer to cover you in the event that it stops working properly. One of our most popular GE 2-in-1 convection oven/microwave is the GE PROFILE AND CAFE ADVANTIUM® OVEN.

Some extra small appliances to consider adding to your must-have list before your next RV camping trip might include: a portable/handheld vacuum, air purifier, portable ice maker, dehumidifier, and coffee maker. All of these appliances are generally low-cost, high-benefit products that enhance the quality of your RV experience triple-fold. These may seem like minuscule additions, but they really add to the coziness, functionality, and making your RV feel like home while on the road.

If you are in need of updating any of your current appliances or electronics before the spring RV camping season arrives, contact us at MWSS for the best quality brands on the market.
