Road Trip Food Planning - RV Lifestyle


The idea of a road trip may conjure up youthful memories of gas-station hotdogs and bags of greasy potato chips, but for many more seasoned RV renters or owners, gourmet RV cooking is part of the rental motorhome lifestyle. Here at El Monte RV, we know for a fact that everyone can eat well while renting an RV, so we have put together this quick guide to our favorite road trip food ideas. Check out these healthy roadtrip snacks and meals that you can quickly fashion in your El Monte RV kitchenette!





The easiest way to overload on fast food and gas station rations is to make the mistake of not planning your meals while on a road trip. Whether you are a meat eater or a vegetarian, planning your meals always leads to a better end result—and all it takes is a little preparation. In the end, planning your meals will probably save you time, because you won’t end up looking for some place to eat in an unfamiliar and desolate backcountry road!


Fresh Fruit and Vegetables


All of El Monte’s RVs come equipped with a luxury RV kitchenette and small refrigerator to store perishables in. Due to the limited space, you may have to pick and choose what you want to keep cold, but that also makes it easier to keep your fridge neat and orderly. Fruits and vegetables make great healthy road trip snacks, and you can spice up a long day on the road with fun combinations like…


  • Carrots and hummus

  • Celery and peanut butter

  • Apples and cheese

  • Jerky and crackers

  • Jam and toast


Meals On Wheels


No, not the delivery service—tastier than that, and fresher as well! Cooking in an RV kitchenette can produce restaurant quality results, if you put the effort in. Our rental RVs’ full stovetop range and convenient microwave allow you to cook whatever healthy and fresh meals you can think of. Here are just a few of our favorite road trip food ideas we have gotten from our loyal customers—all prepared in our RV kitchenette:


  • Curried chicken and cauliflower over rice

  • Spicy pork tacos with coleslaw

  • Steak salad with a light vinaigrette

  • Penne Pasta with a mushroom and garlic marinara sauce

  • Fish fillet served over risotto with a side of seared broccolini (don’t forget the lemon wedge)


 Eating out on the road can be a nice treat, but when you make a habit of it, the bills add up! Save money and enjoy a home cooked meal on the road with any of these road trip food ideas or snacks. Whatever you love to eat the most, there are infinite culinary possibilities at your fingertips when you put in a little bit of preparation or grocery shopping before you leave on your awesome road trip.
