A specialized camping blanket is a must-have for your RV. Of course, you could just get inside the RV and tuck up under your bed covers when it’s cold out, but where would the fun be in that?
Get Out Gear’s lightweight, warm, and waterproof blanket will allow you to stay outside and soak up the stary night sky while remaining cozy and content.
Cooking in the RV is nice and all, but when you’re frying up a towering pile of bacon to feed the family breakfast, it can get a little stinky. This Blackstone tabletop grill features a large 17” griddle to comfortably fry the bacon, eggs, and tomatoes all at the same time.
When the weather’s warm and you’d rather be outside taking in your surroundings while cooking up a storm, this powerful and heavy-duty gas grill will be there.
This nifty little gadget is purposed with putting up a barrier of defense between suspect electrical boxes, power surges, and your RV. Don’t leave your RV’s power supply to chance, let Camco give you the camping confidence you deserve.
This pop-up screen tent in alpine green is great at giving campers protection from the elements. It erects in 45 seconds flat and can fit a family-sized table and four people comfortably.
Not only will it keep the pesky insects at screen’s length, but it will also offer respite from the harsh summer sun and the odd downpour. If you’ve got young children these are especially handy to shelter them from the storm.
Spending hundreds of dollars on fitting a ceiling fan in your RV is silly when you can be sleeping cool and pretty with this rechargeable battery-powered fan instead.
We know how prone RVs are to overheating in the summer months, which is why we are super excited about this one. On a full charge, it can last up to 40 hours at a time and can be recharged while you’re cruising to your next camp spot.
There’s also an LED light built into the head of the fan to offer a cheeky night light when required.
No matter what the RV manufacturers tell you, in general, stock RV mattresses leave a lot to be desired where a good night’s kip is concerned. They are often either too thin, too hard, too small, or all of the above.
Mattress Insider knows this, which is why they’ve designed a luxury range of gel memory foam RV mattresses. Made of high-grade memory foam and wrapped in organic cotton, consider this the Rolls Royce of RV mattresses.
Having already helped over 20,000 RV owners get a proper night’s rest, this above-and-beyond mattress is ready to be shipped out nationwide in a range of sizes right now, which begs the question – what are you waiting for?
A premium cooler is one of the best investments you’ll ever make on the road. RV fridges are inherently small, just fitting food staples at the best of times, and if you also have drinks that need chilling, forget about it.
Forget about it, that is, until you make the clever decision to pick up the Yeti Tundra 35 and designate it as the drink-chilling station.
The high-grade insulation of the Yeti Tundra is known to keep ice frozen for days at a time, giving you plenty of time to polish off that case of beer. Even as a spill-over for food and supplies, this is a sophisticated cooler that looks good, and cools better.
We know, nothing can match the magic of a real-deal campfire, but this portable fire pit comes pretty close. Not only does it do away with dirty ash, excessive smoke, and the expense of firewood, but it also comes CSA-approved for use in most fire bans.
There’s also a natural rock lava set included in the one-time price of this fire pit to make it look and feel like the real thing. The only thing you’ll need to pick up is a 20-lb propane gas bottle to complete your safe and practical fire pit of dreams.
Although these levelers may not be the most fun RV accessory on this list, they are definitely one of the most practical, and practical can be fun right?
This well-priced 10-pack of interlocking levelers is designed to withstand tremendous amounts of weight and can level off even the big boy RVs of America.
Ditch the splintery chunks of wood you’ve got stowed in your RV’s storage compartment, and safeguard your RV the right way, the Tri-Lynx way.
Do you know what’s better than one zero-gravity reclining chair? Well, that could only be two zero-gravity chairs of course.
Be the envy of the campground, as you and your partner kick back in this super comfortable reclining duo that will have you relaxing as you’ve never relaxed before.
Lightweight, foldable, and coming with a detachable tray that features two cup holders to secure your afternoon tipple, this is the ultimate camping chair to bring along for the ride.
The saying that a man is only as good as his tools rings true where RVs are concerned, and this cordless drill is a very good tool.

The drill features a compact 20V Max rechargeable lithium battery that is both light and effective. The 11 position clutch provides precise drilling and is suitable for everyday materials like wood, metal, and plastic.
Turn your morning brew from zero to hero with the Barista Pro by Breville. It features an integrated 4-part system that does everything your local barista would do, but from the confines of your RV kitchen.

Walkie-talkies are a must-have for RV owners who travel in convoy. Being able to communicate between vehicles at all times is one of the key components to safe and easy travel, and this 3-pack from Motorola is up there with the best.
Not having to rely on phone signal, and, or internet service to get a quick message across to your RV peers can be a matter of life or death (and no, we’re not joking).
On a lighter note, they can also be a fun and practical means of communication between your family when camp is set up and the kids go off exploring.

The fun part involves sticking each state’s flag onto the map once you have visited it. This will help you to reminisce on all the amazing RV adventuring you’ve done over the years, as well as show off what a seasoned traveler you are to your campground buddies.
Winter RV life can be a nice and cozy time if you’ve got the right tools at the ready. This space heater by Dreo is a compact portable heater that will take the edge off the winter chill.
