So you’re off on your vacation. You decided to spend your vacation camping on the road with your family using an RV. Going off on an RV adventure is a something everyone should experience at least.

Like any other vacation, it is important to prepare the things you’ll need when you go off away from your home. Since the RV is kinda like a house, you’ll have all the necessary equipment with you. The main problem for most of RV beginners is how to cook and store food when travelling in an RV. This is pretty hard since most of the time, you’ll be moving along with the vehicle. For tips on how to cook or pack food inside an RV, check out the list below.

1. Pack the Food in Plastic Containers

The RV is in constant motion most of the time. The last thing you’ll need on an RV trip is to sweep off the shards of a broken glass or plate because you’re hungry. When going on a trip, make sure to pack up plastic containers and reusable tumblers for your food and drinks. At least if you’re using plastic containers, it’s easier to use.

2. Put the Fridge to Good Use

Foods like canned goods, fruits, bread, crackers, and marshmallows are good to bring along on an RV trip (you might want to store fruits inside the fridge). If you can’t avoid bringing along easily perishable food, make sure to bring along a cooler and lots of ice to keep it from spoiling.

To avoid spoilage of food on the floor, pack them in a secured container properly. Use baskets and cartons to secure your food to avoid them spilling all over your floor.
