So, your loved one is crazy about their RV – so crazy that they have bought nearly every RV accessory out there. What do you give the person that has everything?
We’ve been watching the market this year for the best gifts for RV campers, and we think we’ve found some pretty great things. Best of all, many of these things likely haven’t crossed the mind of your beloved RVer, so you can surprise them with a little more adventure and comfort during their future travels.
Find the perfect gift for the RV camper in your life, no matter the budget, with our 2022 holiday gift guide.
Annual pass for national parks - $80.00
Jane Austen once said, “It is a truth universally acknowledged that an RV owner must be in want of adventure” - or something like that. Okay, so maybe she didn’t use those exact words, but it doesn’t make it any less true. RV owners are completely invested in traveling and making memories in the most beautiful places in the country.
Help the RV owner in your life go on even more adventures by gifting them an annual pass to visit our numerous national parks. Each annual pass can have up to two owners and can be used at any land owned by the Forest Service, National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, and US Army Corp of Engineers.
Cell phone signal booster - $519.99
For RVers that like to stay connected no matter where they go, a cell phone signal booster is a must-have. Maybe they want to stream a specially curated Spotify playlist or perhaps they simply want to upload all the great photos they’ve taken on their trip to Instagram. If you have the budget, gifting them a signal booster is sure to please.
Previously, the weBoost Drive X RV was one of the best signal boosters on the market. However, they recently launched an updated version of the product called Drive Reach RV that can reach cell towers 74% farther away. It also features an omnidirectional antenna that helps prevent dropped calls while improving voice quality and data speed.
Gourmet marshmallow gift box - $58.50
What is camping without s’mores? We wouldn’t recommend it. We would, however, recommend giving s’mores a classy upgrade with some gourmet marshmallows.
There a plenty of selections out there, but when we think of gourmet marshmallows, we mean the real deal: big, sticky, squishy cubes in a variety of mouthwatering flavors – like the ones sold by Viveltre. You can buy your loved one an entire gift set of five dozen marshmallows in five assorted flavors of your choice, such as Bacon Bourbon or Caribbean Island. It is fun and tasty and can really elevate their hot cocoa and s’mores game.
Instant Pot - $89.99
This 7-in-1 pressure cooker has become a cooking essential for a reason, and when you stay in an RV park with full hookups, you can prepare delicious meals with far fewer dirty dishes.
If you haven’t used an Instant Pot before, you might have heard many users boast about how easy to use and easy to clean it is – and how quickly it cooks. It functions as a pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, sauté pan, and food warmer. So, you can dump all your ingredients in the pot and let it do its thing. It’s perfect for cooking large batches for big groups, which if you are camping with family and friends, can be extremely helpful – especially when you don’t want to worry about a dozen different pots and pans to wash.
Kindle Paperwhite - $139.99
It’s a common reader’s dilemma: so many books, so little space to hold them – especially inside an RV. For voracious readers that like to use their camping trips as an opportunity to catch up on their to-be-read list, it can be a pain to pick and pack multiple books. And for those who read long novels, holding up those hardcovers can be a serious workout.
The Kindle Paperwhite provides the perfect solution to these reading challenges. Not only can it hold thousands of books in one lightweight device, but it also allows you to shop for and download new books on the go (in case your favorite reader is indecisive). The screen differs from your standard tablet by acting like digital paper; there is zero glare, so you can read in the sun with perfect visibility. You can also read in the dark. It’s truly a must-have for any reading camper.
Portable fire pit - $149.99
One of the best parts of camping is gathering with loved ones around the fire. But what do you do when there’s no fire pit - but fire is still permitted in the area? That’s when you’ll be happy to have a portable propane fire pit.
Besides being incredibly handy when you’re in a pinch, it has many other benefits. Because it is powered by propane, you can easily turn the fire on and off, and there are no ashes or embers that can cause accidents. For those that hate smelling like campfire for days on end, it produces no smoke, so no one must keep moving their chair when the wind shifts.
Roadside emergency kit - $39.99
As they say, safety doesn’t happen by accident. It requires preparation. You can help the RVer in your life be prepared by gifting them a roadside emergency kit.
It’s something that every RV owner should have, but is often overlooked when they first buy their RV. While they are focused on turning their RV into the perfect vacation home, it’s easy to forget about the accidents that could occur on the way to their destination.
But you can prepare them by ensuring that the roads ahead are smooth with a handful of items designed to help them get out of sticky situations.
RV flagpole kit - $154.74
Those that are proud to explore the beautiful landscapes of the United States are also proud to call this nation home. You can help your favorite RVer display their patriotism at every campsite with this RV flagpole kit.
It’s perfect for RVers that regularly attend events like RV rallies, car races, conventions, and more. It also makes finding their RV in a park of many, many others a much easier task – just look for the twenty-foot flag!
It collapses for simple storage, so they can bring it along on all their adventures to purple mountain majesties and amber waves of grain.
Scented citronella candle - $10.00
During cool, summer evenings, while playing cards, or chatting with friends and family, it’s important to light a citronella candle. All RVers should be familiar with this camping essential and its floral, citrusy scent.
However, that smell can get old after a while. In fact, some might say it smells medicinal. A fun way to break the monotony is to gift your camper a scented citronella candle – perhaps one that smells like burning marshmallows, melting chocolate, and sweet graham crackers.
Stainless-steel drinkware - $20.00
Is there anything that compares to that first cup of coffee when you wake up early and have the campsite all to yourself? We think not. That time is sacred and should be taken in slowly. Not so slow that your coffee gets cold, but that won’t be an issue with insulated stainless-steel drinkware.
Yeti Tumblers are a fan favorite, whether you are camping or heading to the office, because they keep your drink warm, prevent splashing, and fit in most cupholders (including the ones on your camping chairs). And if the RVer in your life wants to fill it with something a little stronger, well... that’s their prerogative.
There were many incredible RV accessories from 2022 that deserve their popularity, so this list is not exhaustive. But we hope this holiday gift guide gives you some unique ideas and puts a smile on your favorite RVer’s face.
