My husband and I have lived in an RV since 2016. Since we start our mornings with multiple cups of coffee, finding the perfect RV coffee maker was crucial.

Over the years we have tried and researched several different RV coffee solutions. Here are the 10 best RV coffee makers, including non-electric options for boondockers and electric models for full hookup campers.

Best Non-Electric RV Coffee Makers

These RV coffee makers are made for boondockers. All of these pots are able to brew a pot of coffee without any power from your RV.

Note on our rating system: The coffee cups (โ˜•) indicate the number of 8 ounce cups made in each brew. The rulers (๐Ÿ“ ) indicate how small (or large) the coffee maker is. A one ruler coffee maker, can easily fit into any drawer.

Stanley The Stay Hot French Press

When we started boondocking more, we knew we needed a coffee solution that didn’t require power. Since we drink several cups of coffee each morning, we also wanted a multi-cup solution.

The Stanley Stay Hot French Press was the perfect solution. It holds six cups of coffee and keeps the coffee hot all morning! This oversized coffee pot is not the most compact solution, but it’s a great option for campers, like us, who want lots of quality coffee.

French presses are a wonderful way to brew coffee without electricity. However, traditional glass French presses are likely to shatter during RV travel. This Stanley model has durable stainless steel walls, so it can be safely stored in any cabinet during travel.

It is also easy to clean. We just rinse it off and wipe it down between uses. It’s also dishwasher safe, so weekend campers could easily bring it home for a thorough wash between camping trips.

Stanley The Camp Pour Over Set

The Stanley Camp Pour Over set is another great option for RV campers. It only makes a single (12 ounce) cup of coffee, but it also takes up less space than the company’s french press.

After pouring hot water over the filter, the coffee drips down into the included mug. It can be reused after a quick rinse to make additional cups of coffee

Like the Stanley French Press, the Stanley Pour Over is made of durable stainless steel and is dishwasher safe.

Hemli Cold Brew Bottle

Since we’re full-timer RVers who camp in all types of climates, we choose a hot coffee maker for our RV. However, I have been eyeing this cold brew bottle that is the perfect coffee solution for summer camping trips.

The Hemli Cold Brew Bottle brews iced coffee right into an 18 ounce stainless steel tumbler. Simply add coffee grounds into the included infuser, then add cold water and allow it to brew for 12 to 24 hours.

To chill your coffee, the tumbler can be placed in the RV fridge or you can just add ice and no refrigeration is required. If you love iced coffee, this is the perfect RV coffee maker because it is compact, durable and doesn’t use any electricity.


We recently brewed coffee with our friend’s AeroPress and it is another great non-electric RV coffee maker. This compact, lightweight gadget brews a full-bodied cup of coffee in just a few simple steps.

To use, place the AeroPress on tp of your mug, add coffee and hot water, stir and press. It can also be used to make cold brews in just a few minutes.

The AeroPress does use small, paper filters so campers need to stock up on those before an extended road trip. It is super easy to clean, just throw out the filter and rinse the press with water.

JoGo Coffee Brewing Straw

For RV travelers and van lifers with really limited storage space, the JoGo Brewing Straw is a great solution. The straw is just under 8 inches long and is super lightweight.

To use, just add coffee grounds and hot water into your mug, stir and drink through the straw. The straw has a built-in filter that ensures no grounds will end up in your mouth. The filter is removable for easy cleaning.

Best Battery-Powered RV Coffee Maker

If you are searching for an RV coffee maker that doesn’t need to be plugged in, but also doesn’t require boiling water over the campfire, the Makita Lithium-Ion Cordless Coffee Maker is the perfect solution.

It will brew up to three 5 ounce cups of coffee on a single charge of a 5.0Ah battery. Since it uses a battery quickly, it is great for short boondocking trips. Campers who will be off grid for an extended period of time, should consider one of the non-electric coffee makers listed above.

The Makita also has a compact design at less than 9 inches tall and has a built-in filter so no paper filters are needed.

Electric RV Coffee Makers

For years, we had an electric coffee maker in our RV because we were usually parked at full hookup campgrounds where power usage wasn’t a concern. Here are the best RV coffee makers for RVers who stay at RV parks and typically have access to shore power.

Mixpresso 2-in-1 Single Cup Coffee Maker

The Mixpresso 2-In-1 Single Cup Coffee Maker has a compact design that is perfect for tiny living or RV travel. The coffee brews directly into the included 14 ounce travel mug, so there is no pot to store.

At just 5-inches wide, this coffee maker will easily fit on most RV countertops. The Mixpresso is available in several fun colors, so you can match your RV’s interior color scheme. Another thing we love this tiny coffee machine is its reusable filter.

Proctor Silex Coffee Maker

For caffeine junkies, like me, a single cup RV coffee maker just isn’t going to cut it. We used the Proctor Silex Coffee Maker in our RV because it has a compact design but still holds 10 cups (50 fluid ounces).

We kept this coffee pot on our counter, and stored it in the sink during travel. While this isn’t the smallest RV coffee maker for RVs, it is one of the best options for nomads who drink multiple cups of joe each day.

Cuisinart 5-Cup Coffee Maker

Cuisinart makes another great multi-cup RV coffee maker. With a 5 cup carafe, this coffee pot makes about 3 large cups of coffee in each brew cycle.

The advantage of the Cuisinart over the Proctor Silex is that it has a durable stainless steel pot. Plus, it has a smaller diameter so it takes up less counter space.

Espressor Machine Coffee Maker

For RVers who are not satisfied with a boring cup of black coffee, the SEVEN & ME Espressor Machine makes espressos, cappuccinos, lattes and macchiatos. All of these drinks are programmed into the machine, so they can be made with just the press of a button.

The machine is not tiny (it weighs 7 pounds and is 11 inches wide) but its two pot design with a flat base makes it easier to store than other machines with similar capabilities.

With a Teflon-coated mocha jar and a stainless steel milk frother, the parts of this machine are also durable and easy to clean.
