Did you just buy a new RV? Do you find that you’re asking yourself: what RV gadgets do I need so I can take my RV for a trip? If so, then you’ve come to the right place.
We’re here to help. In this article, we’re going to discuss 21+ awesome RV gadgets that you’ll actually use.
Décor RV Gadgets
If you want to decorate your RV to make it feel more like home, Quake Hold would be in your best interest. The Quake Hold lets you display your favorite rock collection and china safely. All you need to do is place a small piece of the Quake Hold putty underneath the item you want to display and apply it to any hard surface. When you’re ready to move it, simply twist the item off the putty.
Light Blocking Curtains
Curtains can add dimension and texture to the interior of your RV, and they can block heat. Light blocking curtains can be found in just about every store and are a great RV gadget to have on hand.
Kitchen RV Gadgets
Cuisinart Smart Stick Immersion Blender
This blender can whip, stir, blend, and chop, plus it’s compact.
With the ability to steam, sauté, pressure cook, slow cook, and make flawless rice all with one affordable and small footprint, the Instant Pot is an RV kitchen favorite for RVers. It is the perfect accessory for any camper and won’t take up too much space.
Why would you heat your RVs kitchen if you don’t have to? Instead, use the sun for cooking food. The GoSun portable cooker is an easy to use cylinder style oven that folds down so you can easily store it for all RV travel.
Stovetop Cover (RV gadgets you can use)
You can never have enough counter space, especially in your RV. That’s where the Camco stovetop cover comes in. This stovetop cover slips over your stove’s burners to expand your counter space, giving you the space you need to chop, slice, cut, and prepare all of your food on your next RV camping trip.
The Camco double fridge bar prevents food from shifting when you’re traveling. They are quick and easy to install and are worth the money you spend on them.
Cleaning RV Gadgets
Moisture is an enemy when it comes to your RV lifestyle. Having a shower squeegee can help you keep away excess moisture and can also help keep your shower cleaner for longer. Shower squeegees work wonders and are a cheap motorhome accessory to have on board.
A simple trick that will make cleaning your dishes easier is to have a spray bottle filled with water and some dishwashing soap. This trick will help you pre-soak your dishes, and you’ll use less water when it comes to washing your dishes.
Collapsible Tub (another usable RV gadget)
These tubs are great for general cleaning, foot baths, and even dishes. All you have to do is pop it up when using it and pop it down when you’re ready to store it. It’s that simple!
Laundry RV Gadgets
Even on vacation, laundry doesn’t end. That being said, laundry doesn’t have to be a pain to keep your clothes clean on the road, these laundry RV gadgets will make it easier to do.
If you go to the laundromat, like so many RVers do, then you’ll love this RV gadget. Shout Color Catchers help you save money because if you forget to sort your laundry, you simply add a Shout Color Catcher to the load, and your clothes are safe from the dyes that are released from colored clothes. This makes it so you can wash everything together and save money.
Plastic Washing Bin
If you have no time to wash socks and underwear, simply fill this washing bin with cold water and laundry soap, tightly close the lid, and place it in your shower. The movement of your rig will churn the clothes and wash them.
You need to have at least two fire extinguishers with you at all times: one for the kitchen and one for the engine. Make sure that your extinguishers are safe and up to date.
Corner Guards (RV Gadgets you can use)
If your RV has a slide, then you probably know how easy it is to bang your head, and those corners can really hurt. Corner guards create a softer edge and help keep you safe from cutting your head or arms.
Carbon Monoxide Alarm
If your RV doesn’t come with a Carbon Monoxide Alarm, you must get one. This alarm will detect any gas leaks that humans can’t always smell. These alarms are even more important if you’re driving a diesel pusher, and your bed is located in the back of the RV.
Electronic RV Gadgets
Free Wi-Fi is only good when it works. You can increase your chances of working Wi-Fi with a Wi-Fi booster put on top of your RV. It won’t change bad connections but will increase your chances of being able to use it.
Cell Signal Booster
A cell booster can increase the range of your cell phone, especially when you’re inside your RV.
The Oontz Angle 3 is a great Bluetooth speaker and is even water-resistant so that you can listen to music in the shower.
If your RV camping site has good Wi-Fi, a Roku allows you to stream hundreds of TV channels, many of which are free!
Miscellaneous RV Gadgets
Enclosed fire pits are legal in most parks, both private and national, and they can add a homey feeling to your camping site at night.
Electric Fly Swatter
Electric fly swatters are great for keeping your RV free of pests.
