For many people, an RV is a home away from home. So naturally, you want to have everything
that’s in your home in your RV. A microwave is something that you probably don’t think is
essential, but you probably use it every single day. Why not have a microwave in your RV? It’s a
hassle-free, safe way to cook and reheat food while you’re on the road.
- What to Consider When Choosing an RV Microwave:
You probably already know that in your RV, space is tight. Size is an important factor to keep in mind when shopping for a microwave for your RV. You want something that will get the job done but not take up an entire counter.
- Mounting Types Available for RV Microwaves:
Much like microwaves for your kitchen, you can choose a model that sits on the counter or one that is mounted to the wall. Choosing a wall-mount model may be a good choice if you’re short on space.
- How are RV Microwaves Different from Your Microwave at Home?
RV microwaves are often much smaller than the microwave in your kitchen. They will also be less powerful because you will be drawing power from a different source.
- Benefits to Having a Microwave in Your RV:
Who wants to use the stove every time you have to heat something up? A microwave is a much faster, safer option to using the stove, especially if you have kids around.
