Must Have RV Accessories For Summer Trips

This summer, more people than ever are packing up their RV in search of adventure. With limited recreation options, RVs have become more attractive than ever. Both RV sales and rentals have risen dramatically, and it’s easy to see why. It’s easy to minimize contact with others, and you have everything you need in one spot, or do you? Here are ten must-have items that will make your summer RV travels a success!

Lynx Leveling Blocks

Everything from cooking to sleeping is more comfortable when your RV is level. The Lynx Leveling Blocks are interlocking, making it easy to adjust the height in increments. They can also withstand more weight in comparison to other levelers in the same price range. $42

Walkie Talkies

If you travel a lot, you’ve probably stayed at a campground with limited cell reception. Walkie Talkie talkies are a great way to keep in touch with the kids when they’re exploring the campground, and the easiest way to get them back in time for dinner! The Motorola three-pack is fun for the whole family. $38

Instant Pot

With limited space in an RV, it makes sense to have appliances that can do more than one thing. The Instant Pot is a slow-cooker, pressure cooker, rice steamer, yogurt maker, and so much more. One-pot recipes are easy and leave more time for hanging out around the campfire. $70

Solo Stove Ranger Fire Pit

Spending time around a campfire is our favorite way to end the day, but we don’t want to smell like one. The Solo Stove Ranger is double-walled and produces a “secondary burn” that creates a near smokeless fire. It sounds too good to be true, but trust us, they work surprisingly well. If you like campfires, this is one of our must-have RV accessories. $230

A comfortable hammock or two

As comfortable as RVs are, it’s hard to beat a good hang session outside in a hammock. They take up almost no storage space and can be hung in a minute or two. The Wise Owl Hammock is affordable and comes with special straps that make setup a snap. $29

Portable Lithium Battery Jump Starter

If you like to hang out off the grid, you need to make sure you can always make it home. Batteries can drain for various reasons, and the NOCO Boost Plus GB40 will provide up to 20 jump starts on a single charge. $100

A Good Camp Stove

Frying up dinner inside the RV is fine, but it’s always more enjoyable outside. If you don’t have a fancy RV with an outdoor kitchen, you want a camp stove with enough power to get the job done. The Camp Chef Rainer has a side burner and a griddle, making it a versatile cook station. $160

LED Roadside Flares

RVs are BIG, which means that you need to take extra caution during a roadside emergency. The Twinkle Star LED Roadside Flares have three different flash modes and are visible from up to a mile away (under optimum conditions). Safety is always first, making this one of our top 10 must-have RV accessories. 

Outdoor Floor Mat

You can get away without one of these, but after you use one, it’s hard to go back. They create a beautiful “outdoor room” feel and reduce sand getting tracked into the RV. The Sand Mine Mat is 9×12 and rugged enough for years of outdoor hang time. $63

Comfortable Camp Chairs

Picnic tables are great for dinner, but you need a nice camping chair to site around the fire. The GCI Outdoor Road Trip Rocker functions as a rocking chair and is the ultimate in fireside lounging. It also packs up like a regular camping chair for easy storage. $48
