Even though I spend a lot of time boondocking I have a treasured few RV appliances I simply find indispensable. Living in such a tiny space those appliances must be worth the space they take. Your essential appliances may differ but here are mine and why I can’t part with them.
My Favorite RV Appliances
I spend a lot of time in very damp climates so a dehumidifier is absolutely necessary. Moisture is the worst enemy of an RV. Not to mention the general discomfort of dampness. Yuck! I started out with the little EvaDry you see a lot of RVers using but it just wasn’t powerful enough for my needs. Now I have this larger EcoSeb model. It’s not huge but it gets the job done.
My Dyson Cordless Stick Vacuum is absolutely essential. I love that it is rechargeable which is great for those times I don’t have hookups. It breaks down and I have the charging base attached to a wall in my bathroom.
I have two blenders. My Ninja blender is used when I have power and my rechargeable BlenderX blender is for boondocking. I drink protein shakes for breakfast and lunch every day so these are must-haves.
I use my Instant Pot all the time. Even when I’m boondocking I can run it with my generator. If I’m charging my batteries, I’ll time whatever I need to cook at the same time. It’s great for making a pot of something I can reheat throughout the week for dinner.
Dyson Fan, Heater, Air Purifier
My Dyson Pure Hot+Cool was a great investment. It works as a space heater, an air purifier, and a fan all in one appliance When we had fires all over the Pacific Northwest last summer it kept the air in my home safe. I love that it has a remote and I can also operate it from my smartphone.
Another appliance I use all the time is my HomeLabs portable ice maker. I go through a lot of ice and having this available to make more whenever I need it is so convenient. It’s definitely worth the space it takes.
Other than a hairdryer and rechargeable toothbrush, those are really the only appliances I own.

Great article very practical which is brilliant. I like the fact that you are boondocking which is means you really do need something good.
Thank you again!
I’d love any suggestions for blog posts. Please feel free to send them my way.
That’s a good question about what topics you can write about which might be useful to some of your readers. Again your last one about essential appliances was excellent. Here are a few others. You might have covered these already and I missed them:
– Essential Tools
– Costs. I think many people think it’s cheaper living in an RV but it all depends on how much you travel, boondock, etc. Therefore perhaps a general chart for how to calculate a budget
– Packing: what do you keep in your truck, RV, and how to keep things organized?
– What are your big surprises, good and bad?
-How do you plan?
– If you had extra money what would you invest in?
Great ideas, Thanks Terri!
