Good old Mr. Coffee works for us. It was installed as original factory equipment in 1999 and still works like new. Of course we aren't full timers, and if we were a better brand would be required just for the longevity.

No matter what you pick, just be aware that the 12volt coffee makers are expensive and slow...like 18 minutes to brew a 8 cup pot, slow.

Best of luck

Keurig here too, wouldn't be without mine here in MH or at Home! Coffee virtually instantly and the freedom to switch it up at each cup without straining, draining, filtering, boiling or perking. Technology is great!

If you do much boondocking, you will soon tire of getting up in the morning and discovering that you don't have enough battery power left to make your coffee. You can then try a non-electric solution.

Coleman has two versions of propane operated, "automatic," drip coffee makers. One uses the small propane bottles, and the other sits on top of the stove. I have the stovetop version. It is a little slower than the electric type, but it makes good coffee, and won't run down your battery.

Kuerig here in the motorhome and at home. I can have my tea, coffee, hot water for bullion and such. I would replace it tomorrow if it failed. Bed Bath and beyond has a great return policy on them. If it breaks, they will replace it. No questions asked. Enjoy your cup of joe !!!

I use a Mr. Coffee when camping.

I've thought about buying a French Press coffee pot as well. Rich, strong favour, no power needed, just boil the water, pour and press.

good old fashioned percolator, use a filter in the basket so used grounds don't go down the sink. Yes it takes time in the morning, but the aroma is great

I have had my Melitta for years too makes a great cup of coffee and how you boil the water is up to you.

Be careful in selecting a coffee maker. If you have a MSW (Modified Sine Wave) inverter in you RV, some of the fancier (read: digital display) models don't play nice with the electric from the inverter. The basic plain coffee makers work on this type of inverter.

That's the one good thing about them, if we ever get one I'll get the filter basket so I can use my own coffee. The Keurig ones are just way too expensive.
Right now we've got one maker in the stick house and one in the MH and a brand new one in a box that I bought when I thought the one in the stick house was leaking. Turns out we just have to be a little careful when putting the carafe in.

I've never found the right coffee for the Keurig. The one we had at work never made a decent cup. I use a Technivorm Mocca Master at home. Cheap French press in the TT.

I have a continuous coffee [black] in hand most of the day, since my Navy days. I buy Mr. Coffee pots two at a time, if one fails open the new box, that way I always have one on hand. For the price you can't beat them.

We have an old fashioned perk pot for when dry camping (no gen in the TT) and a cheap $10 Mr Coffee when plugged in. The perk pot makes better coffee but the Mr Coffee is faster.
