One of the most important items on your checklist when renting an RV is proper food storage. Taking the time to purchase food that is appropriate for camping and storing it in the right containers solves issues like food poisoning, unpleasant odors, and food spoilage.
Fractional Toys offers RV rentals for adventurers who want to hit the open road for a weekend excursion or an extended trip throughout the Minnesota area. Below are some of our suggestions for adequately storing your edibles in an RV.
Keep Your Menus Simple
Proper storage begins with assembling easy meals that you can store with ease.
Mastering Chile en Nogada or Consomme is great for the kitchen, but it may not be an excellent choice for the campsite. Rather, than proving your cooking skills in the RV rental, opt for dishes that you can prepare and clean up in minutes.
Here are some suggestions for easy-to-cook meals while camping:
● Camping breakfast sandwiches
● Pancakes and bacon
● Hamburgers and hotdogs
● Campfire nachos
● Walking tacos
● Camping mac and cheese
● Camp cooker pizza
These items are both delicious and easy to store in your rental RV.
Store Dehydrated and Dry Foods
In addition to easy-to-make meals, you may also want to pack dehydrated and dry foods on your trip. These items are lightweight, and they will not spoil in hot weather on an extended RV rental trip. Some examples include:
● Dry soup mixes
● Instant oatmeal
● Instant potatoes
● Tea bags
● Instant coffee
● Powdered hot chocolate
● Nonfat dry milk
Store Food in Sealable, Stackable Plastic Containers
Once you open a package, the food inside has a short shelf-life. You should avoid putting the food back in its original packaging. Instead, reach for a sealable plastic container.
A plastic container can protect food from humidity, bugs, mildew, moisture, and animals. A plastic container will help the food retain its freshness and texture. If you purchase clear plastic containers, you can identify your food before opening the lid.
Another benefit of sealed plastic containers is that they eliminate odors. Plus they are easy to stack and store in your rented RV.
Bonus Tip: Before you put food in your plastic container, line the bottom with a paper towel. This simple hack will keep fruits or vegetable from creating moisture inside the container.
Use Your Refrigerator Sparingly
Since beverages and foods like meats, dairy products, and vegetables require cool, dry areas, the refrigerator will usually fill up quickly.
You need to plan accordingly and limit what items go into the refrigerator. First, don’t stock up the fridge before you hit the road. A better option is to purchase refrigerated food and drinks as you go. Stocking on the go will keep you from overloading your refrigerator and reduce the number of leftovers that are taking up space.
