    Could you please provide a link to the Etsy bins for the Revel for clothes? I don’t want to order the wrong ones. Thanks! Big fan!

    Hi! My boyfriend and I have been looking at the Revel and your videos are very helpful! Thanks for the great content 🙂

  7. Loraine Boyce on June 18, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    Can you share the link on the bins? The size dimensions thanks

  8. Hsia H on June 18, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    neat portable expresso pump, a bit too small for just coffee for me. I’m going to shop for a one like that for regular 16oz coffee… 😅 Wonder how many shots it needs to make 16oz Americano…

  9. RB B on June 18, 2022 at 11:56 pm

    Great hacks!

    You forgot one major item:-) I might be biased but a good heavy-duty good smelling trash bag🤣🤣 sincerely Jason AKA Trashman from your hometown😁👍

  12. Matt Jarrett on June 19, 2022 at 12:04 am

    Thanks for the links 🙌

  13. Sean G on June 19, 2022 at 12:07 am

    Love your video once again! Wondering if you replaced the existing REVEL kitchen faucet that makes a mess in the shallow sink! Wondering if it’s even possible to replace! Thanks, Faris and Lisa!

  16. Jody Herrick on June 19, 2022 at 12:11 am

    Tried to find those felt bags with the handles but they were nowhere online. What are the measurements and do you ask ETSY to make them?

  17. La spence on June 19, 2022 at 12:14 am

    Nice I’m taking notes
    Don’t tell Nikki 😁

  23. iFly64’s on June 19, 2022 at 12:28 am

    You guys are gonna kick Butt with your channel. Your funny and have great chemistry. Glad you like the Porta Paks. Also Van Treker channel uses bread scrapers to block the wind on the griddle. Watch part 2 of their W Virginia trip.

  24. Viktor B on June 19, 2022 at 12:28 am

    Great stuff! Can you provide link to the custom bins?

  25. mac22011964 on June 19, 2022 at 12:28 am

    Stumbled across this….being new to motorhoming I found this useful. Naturals in front of the camera, good editing means it was punchy…not dragged out. Good stuff and have subscribed.

  26. Walex Products Company on June 19, 2022 at 12:29 am

    Great list, especially #6! Definitely an essential item to Pak 😉

  27. Juliet Mulholland on June 19, 2022 at 12:32 am

    Hey guys ..this is great… how did you order those bins from Etsy as I’d love to get some for our new Revel? Thanks so much for doing these …

  28. Julie Kisil on June 19, 2022 at 12:33 am

    Great solution for us coffee drinkers, number one essential for sure! Velcro is the best for just about everything. And gotta have that kindle for your downtime 😉
