Recently updated list!! March 2020!

Fun RV Accessories

These items are fun RV accessories that would make great camping gifts for Christmas, birthdays, or maybe a send-off to a new road trip adventure! They are cool camping gadgets that would make great gifts for RV owners of all kinds!

First, I do need to point out that these are the FUN things. The items that could add to your enjoyment but maybe are not always a must have RV item. 

If you're looking for the RV accessories that you really might need, then check out our ultimate post of RV must haves here.

But hey, the fun items are totally worth checking out though right?

14 Fun RV Accessories

1. Blackstone Tabletop Grill

This Blackstone grill is an awesome addition to your RV camping list. Convenient, portable, and so easy to clean this is a great RV accessory! We have many RV friends that use theirs almost daily.

2. RV Mug

An RV travel mug is a simple and easy Christmas or birthday gift idea for any RV lover. Click here to read the latest price on this cool RV travel mug that I know would make a great gift. 

3. Screen Porch Tent

We LOVE our super easy to set up pop-up Gazelle screened in porch gazebo and recommend it to anyone who stops by. After being on the road full-time for over 1 year, we finally bought our screen porch tent and it was the BEST purchase we've made all year. 

We then used it everywhere we camped because it not only kept out the mosquitos but also the noseeums when we were road tripping in Florida.

4. Portable Chairs

Comfortable chairs have been on our WISH list for awhile. With Florida beaches in our future, it would be so nice to have these for the beach as well as around the campfire. 

Friends of ours have a set and use them every day outside their RV. Click here to add these Tommy Bahama backpack beach chairs to your list.

Another idea is to go for the zero gravity chairs that we see around most campgrounds. They don't fold up small, but they sure are comfortable. 

5. Espresso Maker or Coffee Maker

We cannot live without our Breville espresso maker, and we are a full-time RV family! Now, our Breville is a bit old and large but if you check out their latest models they have really compact espresso makers. 

This is an RV kitchen counter and is a kitchen accessory that Tony and I cannot live without.

Do you really need one? That's up to your lifestyle. If you want to get by with something much smaller and easier to use when you dry camp, then an Areopress is another great option that we also own. 

Another great option for real tasting espresso without power, is something we recently discovered called a Staresso

When we took 5 months to put the RV into storage to embark on some world traveling experiences, we brought our portable espresso maker (the Staresso) with us and used it multiple times each day for 5 months without any problems!

6. State Sticker Travel Map

A state sticker travel map is such a fun addition to your RV. It helps you keep track of where you've visited and brings the entire family into the fun.

I especially like that ours has the flags on each state. SO many families and couples have a map like this on the side of their RV door or slide, it's a fun gift!

7. Rope Lights

Extra lighting around your campsite can make it fun and even a bit more safe when it gets dark early at night. A string of rope lights are such a fun RV accessory to have and you'll see that many RVers have some.

We actually don't own any, as we have our LED light on the outside of our awning. But we've been to many bonfires where there are rope lights that are laid out around the perimeter of the campsite. 

8. RV Mats

A fun RV mat is always a great gift idea. Especially if it comes with a carrying case to make travel days much easier. 

Not many RVing couples or families travel without an RV mat of some sort, so it's always a safe purchase if you're looking for a gift idea. We love that ours is large enough to give the kid's a great outdoor space to play. 

9. Infrared Thermometer Gun

This handy RV tool is on Tony's wish list.

An infrared thermometer gun reads your tire temperature by the click of a button! Our full-time RV friends had this while we were caravaning across Michigan, and it was so cool (no pun intended) to see the quick results! 

It told us if the tires were getting too hot on a travel day, which is not a good thing and can cause some major issues. Let's just say that Tony was quick to say 'I have to get me one of these!'. 

Or, if you're looking for a simple stocking stuffer for an RVing dad or a cheap gift for Father's Day, then a tire pressure gauge is a fun addition to your RV gear that is also very useful. 

10. Portable Garbage Can

These simple and easy to transport outdoor garbage cans are a fun RV accessories that would go great with a lot of outdoor cooking. If you're a weekend camper or a full-time RV living family, these are super helpful to have around. 

We often have large potlucks when we connect with other traveling families, and having an outdoor trashcan is a must. I also like that they pack up small for storage.

11. Sporks

We LOVE our sporks! We bought a set of these exact sporks as a road-trip gift for our kiddos when we left MN after visiting family. These sporks have saved us on space in the RV silverware drawer, they function as a spoon and fork, and the kids love them!

12. Hammock

This portable hammock is still on our wish list! So many RVers have one of these and our kids love climbing in and swinging around on our friend's.

It makes for a great place to read a book and helps you to get outside on a relaxing day at camp. Oh, and . this traveling hammock has its own stand so you don't have to worry about hanging it from a tree.

13. Welcome Flag

Camping Flag

A welcome flag is a really fun RV accessory for any camper. We have one that's specific for Fulltime Families and RV families that travel the US, but there are so many other great ideas for fun camping flags. 

14. Quick Dry Towels

Our family decided to do away with our old towels and each have our own Youphoria towel. Tony and I really like how quickly they dry, how easy they roll up, and how much space we save. The kids especially love the bright colors they have! We got rid of our old towels and now use these exclusively.

What RV Gift Should I Get?

Traveling and living full-time in an RV requires our family to keep our RV gadgets down to a minimum. That often means we can't just buy silly knickknacks to have hanging around. That's why I wanted to create this list of the fun camping accessories to help provide ideas to those of you looking buy gifts for anyone who lives in an RV. 

These ideas are highly recommended because most are very functional and don't take up too much space. Those that are larger, such as the Gazelle tent, are totally worth the space!
