A grilling area is outfitted with a gas grill and charcoal smoker. It is located near an more complete outdoor kitchen space which includes a sink, ice maker, dishwasher and expansive countertop prep space.
Most owners on RVshare stock their rentals with basics like RV-safe toilet paper and basic kitchen utensils. Our Winnie also came with towels, bedding and even a small charcoal grill, so all we had to bring were our clothes, food and toiletries. There were a few extra items that made our trip more comfortable: Dramamine (at highway speeds, the back of a motorhome can sway like a boat); ear plugs (in case of snoring family members or loud neighbors); and air freshener—even a newer RV like the one we drove, the bathroom can generate funky smells after you flush or when the waste tanks get full. We also fell in love with a pair of Vaya Drynk travel mugs that literally kept our coffees hot for six to eight hours—having hot java at our fingertips was an unexpected luxury.
One of the quickest and most effective ways to spruce up an outdoor living space is by adding lightweight drapery panels. Here, the hard lines of the pergola are softened with charcoal drapes that make the porch feel more cozy while also separating it from the nearby grilling deck.
