Tips for a Happy RV Thanksgiving:
Gather and cook what you can early

Simplify dinner preparations for Thanksgiving Day by pre-measuring, bagging, and labeling ingredients beforehand. Pre-bake and cook desserts and side dishes at home that can be reheated.

Clear out the RV fridge

While some RVs are equipped with residential-sized refrigerators, most come with much smaller units. If you are in the latter group, clean out your RV fridge ahead of time to ensure you have plenty of space to store ingredients before cooking and keep leftovers afterward.

Opt for a small turkey or use another appliance

For a small family or dinner for two, forgo the giant turkey. Instead, cook a small turkey or even turkey breasts or legs in the oven or pressure cooker. For larger RV Thanksgiving gatherings, use something besides the tiny RV oven to cook faster and more evenly, like a(n)

  • Electric roaster oven
  • Deep fryer
  • Slow cooker
  • Grill
Pack kitchen essentials

Along with gathering ingredients, stock your RV kitchen before taking off. Besides dishware, utensils, pots, and pans, don’t forget items like paper towels, coffee filters, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, and containers for left-overs. A cooler may come in handy to store drinks.

Of course, if you forget to bring something for your RV Thanksgiving at Mendocino Redwoods RV Resort, we carry all sorts of camping essentials at our store, including firewood and propane. In addition, many more amenities are open for everyone to enjoy throughout your holiday getaway!
