Want more space in your RV kitchen? Adding an island to your RV kitchen provides additional counter and storage space. The added island can also be a place to eat meals, making it possible to remove your dinette booth and free up some floor space.

The best way to add a kitchen island to your RV is to buy one on wheels that can be moved as needed for travel days. Here are a few of our favorite options!

Kitchen island set with stools and baskets

If you want extra seating around your island, find one with stools included, like this one.

  • Multifunctional Bar Set in Industrial Style: This bar table set features classic color, clean lines and open design that can perfectly match any room decor. With its spacious desktop, you can easily place rolls, cold cuts, and freshly squeezed orange juice on it. Apart from serving as a bar set, it can also serve as a dining set to have breakfasts.

The shelves would be great for an RV since they have a “lip” that would prevent things from sliding off. This island isn’t on wheels and would need to be secured to the floor with straps and D-rings during travel.

Foldable “Origami” Kitchen Island

  • Unfold in 5 Seconds - 100% pre-assembled with no tools or assembly needed. Be ready to use instantly for parties or cooking. Unfold and secure with clamp without any hassle

If you need extra counter space but don’t have room to add something permanent, this folding kitchen island is the perfect solution. It collapses completely, making storage simple. You could lay it under your dining table or on top of your bed to keep it secure during travel.

I love the stylish mock butcher block top, and it comes in different colors.

Black Drop Leaf Island

If you choose black cabinets, this is the perfect island to add to your kitchen!

  • Space-saving design: A smart and efficient solution for smaller kitchens or dining spaces, as its dropleaf table allows it to be easily folded away when not in use, maximizing the use of your space.

This classic-style kitchen island is on wheels and can be moved easily as needed. My favorite part is the towel rack on each side. One thing that drives me crazy in my camper is not having a place to hang hand towels!

Simple White Island With Drop Leaf Seating

  • 【Your Mobile Dining Bar】Comes with a folding drop leaf, this island cart can be extended as an easy dining bar. You can expend it anytime when you need more dining space, or easily put it down to make it compact to maximize space

A drop-leaf style island is a great option if you want to ditch the dinette but still need room for two to dine. This will give you space to eat during meals but still allow you to adapt the space.

Small Island with Wire Baskets

I like how much extra storage this little cart ads. Not only can you put things in the baskets, but with S hooks you can hang items from the wire as well.
