Perfect for any RVers who love to grill, this is a simple and delicious recipe. The largest part of the prep here is marinating your chicken in barbecue sauce for a few hours and letting your wooden skewers soak in water for an hour, which you can avoid by using metal skewers. Either way, this recipe mainly consists of preparing some bacon, applying barbecue sauce to the chicken, and grilling the whole skewer. What’s in store for you is a delightful fall treat perfect for the meat lovers out there.
It’s hard to get a better fall treat while out RVing than by baking some apples right by your campfire. This recipe will take a bit of prep work, but we promise it’ll all be worth it once you bite into this amazing sweet snack. One of the best parts of this recipe is that after you’ve cored the apples, it’s really up to you what you put inside them before baking.

One of the easiest methods of RV cooking that’s sure to produce a delicious meal is tossing some ingredients onto a sheet pan and letting the oven do the rest.

If you’re really looking to dive into the fall festivities with your cooking, it’s hard to get much more relevant to the time of the year than with a stuffed pumpkin meal. It’s not too hard to make, either, as you just have to cook the filling together in a skillet, stuff the pumpkin, and further cook the pumpkin until everything is perfect.
As an added bonus, you can cook this in your RV’s oven or the campfire! If you go for the latter option, simply wrap your pumpkins in foil and place the foil in the hot coal and cook for 30 to 40 minutes, checking every 15 minutes.
