So you’ve parked the rig at the RV park and hooked ‘er up. Now it’s starting to feel like “beer-thirty.” Time to set up that outdoor space so you can sit back and start relaxing. Its time for some RV outdoor furniture, and other essentials to make that outdoor space come to life with style!
The right set of outdoor RV necessities will extend your living space right out the front door. They can create an additional RV living room where you can really take advantage of the natural beauty that RV camping provides.
We travel and camp to enjoy outdoor living, right? So let’s make our spot as comfortable as we possibly can.
RV Outdoor Furniture Necessities
Outdoor Lounge Chair:
Outdoor chairs are quintessential RV necessities. To each their own here. We have had the zero gravity chairs and they were nice, but now we just use folding chairs like these Colemans. We really like the attached table and portability. Plus, they are quite sturdy.
They have a handle at the top when folded up to carry them around easily. They are compact for easy storage. The kids use those simple bag chairs, they had the little one at the bottom when they were teeny tiny 🙂 You can also compare these Amazon offerings at Camping World.
There are all kinds uses for tables at the campsite. AND there are all kinds of tables for those uses. Bring one on your next RV trip. Make sure you get something weather resistant but with a compact size when folded. For use as “counter space” to sit alongside your rig and hold all of your outdoor RV necessities, we recommend this simple folding leg table:
Camping Accessories For The RV Patio
Creating a great outdoor space means getting the right RV accessories to transform the great outdoors into great living space. These are our MUST HAVES! – things we have and would simply NOT do without.
They include rugs to define the space and help keep dirt out of the rig, an awning shade to keep the space cool and shaded, a screen room so that the bugs do not chase us indoors in the evening when we really want to be outside.
They need to fold down into a small package to store since storage space is always tight. They also include lights to add ambiance and make friends and visitors feel welcome for some outdoor entertaining.
All of these awesome outdoor RV accessories are nothing without the right ambiance. Here are three different ways to give your site the perfect glow that will create a warm atmosphere for entertaining or just relaxing around the camp.
Outdoor Cooking Necessities
Cooking in the great outdoors is a great way to spend quality time with family and friends. From grilling steaks on the grill, to warming up some marshmallows for smores over the open fire, here is everything you need to make your camp kitchen come to life.
Just pack along your favorite foods and drinks and you are ready for an awesome eating adventure. Also check out the offerings at Camping World.
Outdoor RV Living Recreation Necessities
It’s nice to have some outdoor fun RV accessories at hand. Especially if you have kiddos. We have ring toss, bocce ball, croquette, and the usual smattering of balls, bats, sidewalk chalk, fishing gear. Just think about what you like to do and then think: high entertainment value, small space!
I see the weekenders show up with huge cornhole games- not great for full timing! We also love playing frisbee golf at the local park, it seems that many parks have this available nowadays. It’s one of our favorite family things to do.
One of the best ways to spend time outdoors is to go for a bike ride. There are trails absolutely everywhere and kids NEVER get tired of riding around the campground with their friends. Here are some of the campers favorite types of bikes.
Here are just a few other items you will want to have along. Not so much outdoor RV necessities as simple things to make sure that your camping trip is as relaxing as you had hoped.

Coleman Propane Grill is not made like they used to make them. I had our previous Coleman Roadtrip grill for about ten years, using it as a space-saving primary BBQ. It was great but after ten years mostly outside it was time to replace it. As usual, I bought the same thing. I’ve had it for about eight weeks, and have used it a half a dozen times. It’s no longer pumping gas to one of the two burners
We’ve returned two of the new Coleman’s for the same reason. We finally bought a Camp Chef 2 burner that works great. Good control on the dials !
I am looking for an alternative to it. Can you help me find one? I usually bring on my trip so I need one that is suitable
Check out the Weber Q series. Very good quality and portable. Always check that the campground allows tabletop grills. Some do not.
Looking for what people do to decorate for holidays, such as Christmas.
We are actually working on that exact article right now, check back next week and it should be published :.
We are using a black stone griddle 17” and leaving the camp stove at home. Well worth the money! Can cook almost everything on it! Boil water on the campfire or use the stove inside the camper. Before you buy check it out! Amazon has them
Great tip. Thanks!
