Do you bring an electric toaster with you when RVing?

What to bring? What to leave? Every RVer knows the struggle when it comes to what to bring on your trips and what to leave behind. Kitchen appliances are no exception. Who has room for their toaster, espresso machine, Instant Pot, Kitchen Aid, and everything else that clutters counter space?

When you travel in your RV, do you bring an electric toaster with you? All of the time? Sometimes? Never? If you don’t bring it with you, perhaps the question for you is: If you had the room, would you bring an electric toaster with you? If you’re looking for a tiny toaster, here’s a small compact one.

Please tell us in the poll below. Thanks!

Yes, one small one slot toaster

Toaster Oven! We try to get counter-top appliances that do more than one thing. A toaster oven can do 4-6 slices of toast, bake and broil. And it’s easy to move outside to use. 😉

Yes, we have a small two slice pop up toaster combination toaster oven. A tenant left it behind in one of our rental units. It stays in our camper now. We also have a basic coffee maker that we use daily, but we keep a stovetop percolator in case we’re staying w/o shore power.

Can’t help it. I like to have a peanut butter and jelly on toast for breakfast

That’s one of my favorites too. I have it at least 3 times a week.

Toast with peanut butter and strawberry jam is my favorite breakfast, 4 slice toaster stays in motorhome.

My wife and I are full timers, and yes we brought a toaster. I don’t want to have to start a fire just to make some toast. In addition, depending on where your campground is, some are not allowing outside fires.

As an old school camper, I make my toast the same way I toast marshmallows or holding bread with tongs over a stove burner. I might get an over the fire toaster some day.

My Roadtrek came with a coffee maker. I don’t drink coffee, so I just replaced it with a toaster.

We bought a really cheap small plastic 2 slice toaster at a Target over 5 years ago…maybe $25…it’s much better than our Breville 4 slice at home, which only toasts 1 side.

Too funny. This is us. Only we have a 2 slicer from Walmart for $15. And yes, are Breville only toasts one side. What’s up with that?!

Ha ha! Mike Sokol asked me the other day if I knew what “SOL” was (yes), and I asked him if he knew what SOS was (not having been in the military). Yes, he knew. And here it is again! I like it with chipped beef, but haven’t had it for many years (not the most nutritious meal). Take care. 🙂 —Diane at

I also carry one for the campfire, it more or less burns the toast, it weighs about 3 ounces

Our toaster is a fixture in the motor home.I made a wooden tray that it sits in. Any crumbs stay in the tray

Like others have mentioned…. we have a toaster “oven” that we use when we are located at our rv resort. When we arrive, we pull it out of storage and put it back when we go home 5 months later. We do have a regular toaster that is dead weight, as we never use it but always carry it with us….you know, just in case.

Have a toaster and a Mr. Coffee, but when boondocking we use a stove top percolater or pour over decanter and a campstove folding toaster.

a toaster has been std equipment in all of our RVs since we started this adventure back in 1986.

Our toaster keeps setting off the smoke alarm. So step one is putting the alarm out of the way. We always put it back. Our toaster is the one you mentioned in your article. It was a gift from our son.

We have a dedicated toaster and coffee maker can’t leave home without them.

My poor old toaster is the one you put over a flame and lean 4 pieces of toast on a wire and then turn them around when they are a nice golden brown. Oh heck, its’s BLT time.
