    RV coffee maker

    Hi everyone, need your expertise here!

    I will soon be in a possession of a travel van - an ordinary van which is redesigned to be an RV.

    I would like to have a coffee maker in it, hence - in need of your suggestions.

    What should I look for when buying a coffee maker for an RV?

    The size matters, I think, also - the material? Is it better to be made of steel than glass?

    What else should I consider?

    Do you have any suggestions for such a coffee maker?


    Thanks in advance for your replies!!

    if there are a couple of people traveling, Aeropress might be most compact and practical to use.

    As BIC suggested, a Aeropress might serve you well. After trying a regular drip coffeemaker, I switched to using a Clever Dripper in our camper. What drove me to do that was the difficulty of satisfactorily washing the carafe and other parts of the drip pot in the small camper sink. Just more food for thought.

    If you go down the traditional 'drip coffee maker' style brewer - check out the Bonavita brand of brewers. They make a 1600 & 1900 which have stainless steel dispenser options - they hold the coffee hotter and obviously won't break like glass.

    Space is always a concern in an RV, I believe. I don't plan on brewing while on the move, only when stationary. So any would do, I guess.
