4First Aid Kit
A good first aid kit is a definite necessity for anyone who spends time camping or away from civilization.
5Easy Windshield Cleaning Tool
A windshield cleaning tool makes it easy to keep the hard-to-reach glass on a big windshield clean and clear.
6Oxygenics Shower Head
The Oxygenics shower head is well known as the preferred replacement shower head for RVs. It is so much better than the typical stock shower heads. The Oxygenics works by injecting air into the stream, providing a nice consistent flow even when the water pressure is low. At the same time, it conserves precious water by keeping the flow to 2 gallons per minute.
7Nesting Kitchen Bowls
RVers can save space in the kitchen by using a set of nesting kitchen bowls. Most come with a variety of mixing bowl sizes, plus all the standard measuring cups.
A set of Andersen Levelers makes it simple to level a 5th wheel or travel trailer. Simply place the levelers in front of the tires and pull forward until reaching the desired height.
9Digital Laser Infrared Thermometer
A thermal gun is helpful for keeping an eye on tires and hubs at each stop on a long drive. It’s also great for cooking and grilling.
10Digital Photo Frame
RVers and other travelers take a lot of pictures. A digital photo frame is a great way to show them off.
A mini blender is just the gift for an RVer. It’s small and light weight, yet powerful enough to make tasty smoothies, shakes, and salsa.
12A Quality Pocket Knife
Campers need a good pocket knife. A Victorinox Swiss Army knife has been the standard for quality and durability with all the right tools for any camping situation.
13Easy Hook Bungee Cords
A set of easy hook bungee cords will help keep all those RV cords and hoses organized properly.
RVers know carrying a lot of books around isn’t really practical. That’s why a lot of travelers love to use e-book readers, such as the Kindle. They don’t cost much, but can hold hundreds of books and the battery lasts for weeks.
15Bedside Storage Caddy
Space is always at a premium in an RV, especially in the bedroom. A bedside caddy is a handy place to store glasses, a book, flashlight, and other small items you might want near the bed.
16Vacuum Insulated Water Bottle
A good insulated stainless steel water bottle will keep water nice and cold for hours, even in the hot sun.
17USB Car Charger
Nowadays pretty much everyone can use a good USB car charger for keeping cell phones, tablets, Kindles, and other devices topped off and ready to go.
18Solar Powered Outdoor Security Light
This solar-powered LED security light is easy to install on a motorhome or trailer. It has double-sided peel-n-stick tape and no wiring required.
19Marshmallow and Hot Dog Roasting Stick Set
Pretty much every RVer and camper will roast hot dogs and marshmallows at some point. A good hot dog roasting set makes it so much easier to create those great camping memories.
