These are our favorite cool RV accessories, they help to ensure we have a really fun time when we RV camp and hopefully they will do the same for you.
They also make great gifts for so many RVers. So if you have a family member or friend who RV’s, look to our list at gift giving time!

Indoor RV Accessories
This is an awesome gift for RV owners, honestly who doesn’t want a camping mug to drink their morning coffee or tea out of. I’m betting that every single RV owner has an RV mug in their cupboard. It is one of the must-have fun RV accessories.
Tell us about yours in the comments section below.
Aren’t these beautiful? I am IN LOVE with these decorative camping cushion covers, they brighten up the RV and visitors rave about them any time they visit. I’m not terribly adept when it comes to decorating so these pillows have helped to change the decor without much effort!
I love that I can wash them when needed and the price is just right.
When you are camping you will have a lot of use for towels. So quick drying microfiber towels are a really nice thing to have. They work well for the beach, or in the RV bathroom. Super absorbent and fast to dry!
Since RV beds can be so difficult to change due to cramped space, these zippered fitted sheets make changing the bed a breeze. The elastic portion stays on the mattress while the top panel zips off for easy laundering!
This is an awesome option if you are in need of laundry, but nowhere near a town. You can put your clothes into the bag, water and soap, and scrub the laundry by hand.
Scrubber panel inside softly agitates your clothes for a thorough cleaning.
Shatterproof wine glasses just make sense in a home that rolls down the highway! Leave your worries about broken glass behind and enjoy your beverage in style!
Kitchen RV Accessories
Here are some of our favorite RV kitchen accessories for your camper kitchen. These RV kitchen gadgets will save space and make your life easier.
On our travels, we see a lot of RVers cooking indoors on a beautiful day, I found that I was doing the same thing! So we bought our dutch oven to make ourselves cook outdoors more and it’s worked!. I was always the one stuck indoors cooking while everyone else was outside enjoying the fresh air.
Now I get to be outdoors with everyone else, plus everyone wants to be part of the cooking process because it’s so much fun cooking outdoors (especially when you make dutch oven apple crumble).
You started RVing to enjoy nature and be outdoors so why get stuck indoors cooking?
In an RV, space is always at a premium- especially in the kitchen. So space saving accessories like these collapsible measuring cups and spoons are a life saver. This set of measuring cups are dishwasher safe and accurate.
We love this Hamilton Beach coffee maker because we can make a pot of tea which we both drink in the morning, but I can also make the occasional K-cup of coffee or espresso that I enjoy in the afternoon. So versatile!
For travel days, a good set of safety bars can really help to keep everything in the cupboards or refrigerator in place. Spring loaded and adjustible.
Near the door, in the kitchen, or in the bedroom, these handy cargo nets can be installed anywhere you need a bit of extra storage space. Several sizes are available.
When you really like to cook outdoors, a little extra space can be a big help. This folding outdoor kitchen rack gives you loads of extra shelf space for all of your cooking needs.
Easy to transport and sturdy when set up. Zippered compartment keeps away the bugs.
For the minimalist, or to use on that outdoor kitchen, this Cusinart tabletop grill is a perfect cooking center. 145 square inch cooking surface is large enough to cook for the whole family, foldaway legs help to make it perfect for limited storage space.
If your family loves to grill out as much as ours, look for this baby for next Father’s Day.
The Anything Keeper under cupboard storage solution really allows you to use every bit of space in your RV kitchen. Installs on the underside of the cabinet and lowers down to give you access to its contents.
RV kitchens are famous for not having much space, so this little drop down unit is a perfect RV gadget.
Outdoor RV Camping Accessories
Outdoor living is a big part of why we go camping right? So setting up a great outdoor space is key. Most RV parks will have at least a decent amount of space in your site. Extend your camper space right outside with this cool RV gear.
When you go camping whether you have kids or not, you know s’mores will be on the menu. We like these marshmallow roasting sticks because they are a little longer which helps to keep the kids further from the fire – always a good thing!
No scorched eyebrows here please.
They fit nicely in a pouch and can be stored anywhere, we keep ours in the outdoor kitchen when we are using them and under the bed when we are not.
If you want to relax while camping, bring a hammock with you. You may not always have an RV camping site that will fit one, but a lot of the time you will.
When we boondocked near Yellowstone, the kids fought over our one hammock, so we ended up buying another and they actually sat in their hammocks reading for almost 1 hour. Parents know this happens almost ….NEVER.
FYI -This was NOT a once off, it has happened many times since then and we are still a little shocked (but are loving the quiet time.)This fun rv accessory will give hours of enjoyment WHEN you can use it.
One of my favorite things to do is to snoop at the different outdoor camping lights and fun RV accessories that other people have. It’s so pretty at night to wander around the campground and look at what outdoor lights. Is that weird?
I see a lot of RVers with rope lights that lay on the ground and light their entire campsite. It’s so beautiful, it also helps you to find your way if your RV doesn’t have a lot of lights.
We have outdoor lights on our awning so we don’t use any extra lights. I just love these cute RV string lights, I may have to break down and get a set this year.
Folding chairs that are durable and comfortable. These kickback rockers are just the ticket. Chill out and enjoy your site!
We do not have one of these but I want one! We have tried kayaking a couple of times and we really like it, the kids LOVED it. Other RVers we met when we were camping in Yellowstone highly recommended their inflatable kayak.
We tried it out on the lake and were super impressed at how comfortable and safe you felt with a blow up.
UPDATE: We FINALLY bought two of these on Amazon Prime Day and LOVE them. They take a few minutes to blow up and down but they come in a zippered bag making them easy to store under the rig.
We usually keep them blown up at our site so we can just pick them up and go.
It’s a really fun way to spend an afternoon and a great way to see the sights.
When you’re camping, pulling out a lighter to start a fire isn’t really camping! Using a real fire starter to start a fire makes you look very Bear Gryllish, plus the kids will love watching dad start a real fire.
Go ahead and be the campground Grizzly Adams and show the kids how it’s done.
We are wine drinkers and we use these wine glasses because they will never break! Having said that I absolutely adore this 5 piece set of stakes to hold your wine bottle and glasses. These would be perfect for the beach, tailgating parties, or when you have guests over.
They may not be practical but they certainly are a fun RV accessory. Don’t forget to bring a wine aerator, this will change the way you drink wine FOREVER (seriously) and mom will be a very happy camper!
If you are an RVer and I’m guessing you are because you’re reading this, you need to buy one of these RV travel maps for your RV. Our kids are so excited to add a new sticker anytime we visit a new state.
Plus it’s a great conversation starter with other campers. A friend of ours purchased it for us as a Christmas gift before we left, what a great idea right?
I must admit that I thought buying a cutlery caddy was a ridiculous purchase at the time because it was so big, however it fits perfectly in the outdoor kitchen!
It saves me so much time and energy not having to go in and out getting silverware and napkins. I am SO glad I decided to go for it.
This would make an awesome fun RV gift for any RVers you know. We love watching movies with the kids and as everyone knows, movies and popcorn go hand in hand.
The kids love when the popcorn starts popping. It makes your camping experience a little more special and fun for the kids.
One of our favorite things to do is watch a movie outdoors with the kids. We set the kids up on our outdoor camping rugs and inflate two of these camping pillows and the chillaxing begins. These pillows also work great when you are hanging out in the hammock.
If you are a tent camper, they work great for camping in tents too.
Most RV parks will give you a good space for your outdoor living, so dress it up in style! RV mats do so many things that we feel they are one of the best accessories you can buy. They define your outdoor area creating an outdoor living space. They keep dirt and dust out of your rig. Plus they just plain look nice!
When you get to the RV park, add some color and whimsy to your campsite with this set of beautiful garden flags. There ire 12 in the set, so a flag for every occasion/ season. Adds a welcoming touch to your road home.
This portable propane fire pit ensures that you have a quick fire any time. Since so many locations do not allow wood fires, this propane fire pit is just the thing.
Make sure you always check the local open flame regulations.
Back when we first hit the road, this ladder was a HUGE find. It is perfect for the RV’er when you need to wash/wax, or get a frizbee out of a tree. It folds down small enough to fit in most camper storages and it is really lightweight. We still have ours after all these years.
A great outdoor living space needs a good trash can. But space limitations make it hard to carry an extra can for the outside. This lightweight collapsible trashcan makes the job simple.
Sturdy, lightweight, and folds down for easy transport between sites. Perfect for camp!
This inflatable lounger is perfect for your outdoor space, the beach, or anywhere you go. Comfortable seating that folds down to almost nothing. Lots of choices for a beautiful splash of color for your site.
Technology RV Gadgets
As much as we want to leave behind al of the trappings of modern life when we go camping, there are a few really cool rv gadgets that make life easier.
Having a solid signal to our phones is critical for most RVers. weBoost is the industry leader in signal boosting hardware for RV’s and vehicles. This unit works with all major carriers to boost the incoming signal to the inside of your truck or RV.
For internet access, a mobile hot spot cannot be beat. The latest units, like this Netgear Nighthawk, utilize G5 technology to deliver WIFI 6 speeds.
We have used both Verizon and ATT service over the years and had very good experiences with both. Look for the latest plans to find the best value for you.
For any RV, tire pressure is a critical element to be on top of. Knowing that a tire is deflating before it goes flat, or blows out can save you costly repairs down the road.
At least it can keep you from hours of danger spent on the side of a busy highway. This Vesafe tire pressure monitoring system comes in many versions so that you can match you exact needs.
A generator is essential for any kind of boondocking. It allows you to camp free in areas that you normally would not access. We owned this Champion Hybrid generator and it performed like a champ.
Plenty of power for most rigs, quiet running, and sine wave power that is safe for todays modern electronics. All this and the price just cant be beat!
A good pair of 2 way radios can come in handy in so many ways while on the road. From communication between vehicles, to assistance backing into tight RV spots, to safety while out hiking or enjoying the great outdoors.
These Motorola Talkabout Radios have a 16 mile range, and are very reasonable in price.
Below are some of our favorite hook up items, as well as a few things that are just plain necessary for all Rvs. Look over this list carefully before your next trip.
A water pressure regulator is a really important part of your hookup kit. As you travel to different campgrounds you will realize that water pressure varies a great deal from one to another.
Having a pressure regulator will protect your rig from high water pressure which could potentially do damage to your rig causing a leak or worse.
Even more-so than with water, an electrical regulator is essential to your set up. Electrical fluctuations can do tremendous damage to your electrical system and cost thousands to repair.
This particular “best seller” is for a 30 amp rig. Mkae sure to get a 50amp unit if you have a 50amp rig.
Poop runs downhill. That needs to be true. Ensure that this is the case with a Camco Sewer Hose Support. Helps make sure your hose runs (fairly) cleanly and you will thank yourself on travel day!
You will only walk into the corner of your slide out one time to realize how great these corner guards are. Do your noggin a favor today!
If you plan to do any winter or cold weather camping, a heated hose should be at the top of your list. Keeps your fresh water supply and your pipes from freezing where damage can occur. Broken water lines are no fun while camping!
A good set of RV stabilizers will help to keep your rig from rocking and swaying while you are walking around or…ya know. There are several types for different kinds of stabilizers depending on your rigs jacks.
Whether you are a weekend camper or a full time Rver, you will not have to worry about shaking and rocking with these awesome RV parts. Work well on uneven ground or a flat surface!
Keep your tires from sun damage, rust and dirt with these RV wheel covers. They keep your tires safe, and make your site look tidy. Super easy to install and store.
Whether you are out for recreation, dumping tanks, or doing necessary repairs at night, a good headlamp is a necessity. Keeps your subject well lit and keeps your hands free. Safety and security right on your forehead!
We found these on Amazon and they are really cool! They are a set of 10 quick reminders of your most important tasks on travel day. Good for a motorhome, fifth wheel. or travel trailer.
They wrap around the steering wheel so they cannot be missed. Bright and colorful they will keep you from making BIG mistakes!
Not everyone has a rig with autoleveling, and thisThis new generation of RV leveler is super cool, using bluetooth technology to save you running back and forth to check your progress. . Just place in a central location and then watch on your smartphone.
The leveler will tell you which direction needs adjusting. Front to back and side to side simultaneous readout.
This little organizer tent is just awesome. It pops up and stakes down just like a tent. It has 9 shelves with 30lb capacity for shoes, clothes, toys, etc. It makes your set up way more efficient and organized.
Games And Entertainment
We love this Amazon Basics Bocce Ball set. It stores away in its own bag, and can be played just about anywhere. Fun for the whole family!
This easily storable ring toss game is super fun for the whole family. It sets up in about a minute, and comes with a carrying case to keep it all together.
We absolutely love this game. Cut throat monopoly action in a fraction of the time. We have truly worn out several sets of these card. You will too!
Phase 10 is a rummy based card game that pits players against each other and can turn on a dime. So much excitement and fun. Your entire family will love this game.
Skip Bo is another completely addicting card game. It is a little hard to explain, and certainly more in depth than the last two, but once you start playing, you cannot stop. Once again, the outcomes can change very quickly which adds to the fun!
Enjoy the great outdoors from a whole new perspective. Hang a sheet, pop some popcorn and invite the neighbors for movie night at your own theater. Bluetooth AND Wifi compatible, so you can project content from a smartphone, laptop, whatever you have.
Add a whole rainbow of color to your campfire. Just sprinkle these color flame crystals to your wood fire, and sit back and enjoy! Beautiful and mesmerizing bright colors. A whole new campfire tradition.
Cornhole goes hand in hand with camping, or any outing really. The only problem for campers has been the sheer size and unwieldy nature of cornhole boards.
This collapsible cornhole set answers the call by offering the full fun of cornhole, with none of the storage and transport issues!
If you, like us LOVE to play Yatzee, but have longed for the chance to play it in a more “full scale” way- you are in luck! Yardzee blows up a game of Yatzee into a full sized outdoor event! Great fun for all.
