Since storage in an RV kitchen is almost always at a premium, hanging a magnetic knife holder makes a lot of sense.
Magnetic knife holders come in various sizes, but I suggest getting the largest size that you can hang. For instance, in our Shadow Cruiser, we managed to hang up a 20″ magnetic bar that has plenty of room for our knives, scissors, and wine opener (after all, you’re going to want that wine opener handy). I also keep a few safety pins on the magnetic holder; they come in very handy. In fact, I got very bright and bought some magnetic tape so that I can hang all kinds of things on my knife bar now. For instance, I keep a small box of bandaids there for when I cut myself on one of those knives….
Be particularly careful though when hanging anything in an RV. The last thing in the world you want to do is go through the thin shell. Check your owner’s manual for the correct equipment you’ll need to hang a magnetic knife holder and then proceed slowly. It will be worth it.
Note: it used to be that these magnetic knife holders were all metal but, now, you can find them in maple, cherry, or oak finishes if you’d like to match the interior of your RV.
