9 Essential Van and Camper Appliances for Your Next Adventure

RVs and campervans allow you to explore new destinations while enjoying the comforts of home on the road. Whether you're a seasoned traveler or a newcomer to van life, having the right campervan accessories can make all the difference in your experience. In this guide, we'll explore the top 9 must-have appliances that will make life on the road a little easier.

1. Campervan Fridge

Keep your food and beverages fresh throughout your travels with a reliable 12V refrigerator. These compact refrigerators are designed to fit seamlessly into your van or RV’s interior, providing ample storage space for groceries, drinks, and snacks. A 12V refrigerator is an essential addition to your campervan kitchen and ensures that you always have access to fresh food wherever your journey takes you.

2. Induction Stove or Fixed Propane Stove

Prepare delicious and healthy meals on the road with an induction stove or fixed propane stove. Induction stoves offer fast and efficient cooking with precise temperature control, while fixed propane stoves provide a reliable heat source for traditional cooking methods. To choose the best option for your campervan kitchen, consider your space and access to power/solar. Induction cooktops take up less space, but propane stoves are a truly off-grid solution.

3. Instant Pot or Slow Cooker

Space is a premium in campervan kitchens, and these versatile appliances give you dozens of cooking options. An Instant Pot multi-cooker combines the functions of a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, and more, allowing you to cook a wide variety of dishes with minimal effort. A slow cooker is lighter and more affordable and can be used for soups, stews, pasta, and rice dishes. Either option is an ideal camper appliance to enjoy home-cooked meals, even with limited space and resources.

4. Blender

If smoothies or shakes are part of your regular diet, a compact blender allows you to enjoy your favorite drinks on the go. Look for a lightweight and durable model that can handle a variety of ingredients, from fruits and vegetables to ice and protein powder.

5. Toaster Oven

You can bake, broil, toast, and more with a toaster oven. When a stovetop burner isn’t enough, this versatile camper appliance gives you more meal options. Whether you're heating up leftovers, roasting vegetables, or making toast for breakfast, a toaster oven provides convenient cooking options without the need for an installed oven.

6. Kettle

Travelers looking for a quick meal understand the versatility of boiling water for oatmeal, noodles, and more. An electric kettle is light and space-efficient, making it a great campervan accessory for quick meals and hot beverages. Look for a lightweight and durable model with safety features such as automatic shut-off and boil-dry protection for peace of mind on the road.

7. Portable Coffee Maker or AeroPress

Don’t compromise a freshly brewed cup of coffee for life on the road. We recommend a compact coffee maker or AeroPress for your campervan kitchen. These compact brewing devices are perfect for enjoying your favorite coffee wherever your travels take you. A portable coffee maker is convenient, while an AeroPress is an electricity-free solution for off-grid living.

8. 12V Air Conditioner

Living or traveling in a campervan shouldn’t mean you have to suffer from stuffy, hot temperatures. OFF IndelB’s innovative 12V air conditioner is the first for vans and RVs that is powered by the auxiliary battery only. You can enjoy cool, comfortable air without the need for inverters or generators.

When searching for an air conditioner for your RV roof or van, it’s important to consider the measurements. The internal dimensions of our 12V air conditioner fit most spaces that are already cut for fans, making installation simple.

9. Fan

Promote airflow and ventilation inside your RV or campervan with a fan. Whether you choose to install a fan in the ceiling or use a portable, battery-operated fan, it’s crucial to circulate air and prevent stuffiness, especially during warm weather or when cooking indoors! Look for a fan with adjustable speed settings and a quiet motor for optimal comfort and convenience.
