Drying Dishes in an RV

September 18, 2012
Filed under Quick Tips

The kitchen counter in our RV is too small to hold a conventional dish drain board. Using an idea we saw in our travels through Italy, I purchased a 10-by-22-inch plastic-coated wire shelf assembly from Walmart, and hung it upside down over the galley sink. I installed four eyebolts through the underside of the overhead cabinet (the bolt eyes had to be opened slightly to act as hooks for the shelf legs). The threaded eyebolt shank was adjusted to make sure the shelf would hang parallel to the counter surface. Now, as we wash the dishes, we place them on the metal shelf to drain directly into the sink.
