Meanwhile, to further enhance RV owners' kitchen experience while keeping the diminished storage space available in RVs in mind, the company is developing a set of stackable pots and pans. Nor is the company planning to rest on its laurels anytime soon. "We currently have numerous kitchen appliances in develop- ment for the 2020 model year," says Healey.
