RV accessories can take your home-on-wheels to the next level! There are tons of accessories and gadgets out there for your rig. It’s important to find the right gear, as you only have so much free space in your RV for these extras. In this blog, we’ll breakdown the essential accessories that will make your life easier and your ride less bumpy. Having a well-equipped rig can make traveling in your RV comfortable and easy. You probably have a good grip on your normal RV packing list, but now it’s time to add in some must-have gear to up the convenience factor on your next road trip!
Let’s start with everyone’s favorite part of the RV, the kitchen! There are a ton of ways to make cooking meals in your tiny RV kitchen easy and enjoyable. Luckily, we have already written about everything you’ll need in your RV kitchen here. Don’t forget to try those tasty recipes too!
Most RVs don’t have a washer/dryer. If you want to limit the number of trips to the laundromat, purchase a collapsible plastic tub. This way, you can hand wash smaller items that don’t need to go through a spin cycle.
Once you’re done hand washing smaller items, hang them up on a door organizer. Door organizers are great because you can hide things behind closed doors, and they take up little to no space.
If you’re willing to sacrifice some space in your rig, you can purchase a portable washer/dryer. If hand washing isn’t your thing or you have lots of dirty laundry to go through, this accessory is for you!
Cleaning your rig doesn’t have to be a chore! In fact, a clean rig is essential for the health and longevity of your interiors. Having some gadgets help you get the job done will swiftly check that “chore” off your list. Using a few accessories to clean more often, like once a week, will also reduce the number of “heavy deep cleaning” days that everyone dreads.
Moisture can be your RVs biggest nightmare. After showers, you should squeegee the wet walls. This will help your shower stay cleaner longer and reduce residue. Once a week, while you’re in the shower, take the opportunity to clean it with natural cleaning products like vinegar and baking soda. Bonus: you probably have this in your kitchen already, saving you space!
Cleaning the outside of your rig is just as important! Purchase a high-pressure hose nozzle to clean tougher areas that struggle with buildup. To go along with that nozzle, consider a shrinking hose. These are space-efficient and easier to manage.
There is no greater adventure than a boondocking excursion! But in order to be comfortable out in the middle of nowhere, you have to be prepared. Walkie-Talkies are a safe and fun way to stay connected with the people you are traveling with. Bring extra batteries just in case! If you’re going to be out in the boonies for longer than a week, it’s smart to also have a portable solar panel. This way you never have to worry about electricity or things dying.
Want to make your boondocking trip even better? Bring a portable propane gas fire pit. This way everyone can gather around the campfire and spend quality time outdoors! What is a camping trip without storytelling and roasted marshmallows?
Getting lost is never fun. Whether you’re boondocking or in the city, an RV GPS will be your saving grace and long-lasting investment. Installing one can be easy and rewarding. Before you hit the road, make sure you have a reliable GPS. Not only will it get you to your destination, but it also tracks maintenance checkups, safe roads to drive by, and provides RV stops.
RV accessories can be helpful and make life easier. But remember to not get caught up in material things. It’s the journey that we’re after!
