15 RV Necessities For Awesome Outdoor RV Living

Sitting Outside the RV in our camping chairs

AHEM: Just an FYI that this post may include affiliate links that make us money. They do not cost you anything. See our policy HERE. Enjoy.

So you’ve parked the rig 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. 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 be outside right?  So let’s make our spot as comfortable as we possibly can.

 

Outdoor Furniture Necessities

Camping Chairs:

Quintessential RV necessities. To each their own here. We have had the “O gravity” chairs and they were nice, but now we just use folding chairs like these Colemans. We really like the attached table and portability. They have a handle at the top when folded up to carry them around easily. The kids use those simple bag chairs, they had the little one at the bottom when they were teeny tiny :).

Camping Tables:

There are all kinds uses for tables at the campsite. AND there are all kinds of tables for those uses.  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:

Side Tables:

For side tables alongside your camping chairs, a nice scissor-legged unit will work nicely. They are nice and sturdy but fold up flat for easy transport.  We use ours a lot and they fit under the RV easy enough.

 

Rugs:

One of our Must Have RV accessories.  We Love our rugs– they turn your outdoor space into living space very quickly and really help to keep dirt and dust out of the rig.  You can read more about them here.  Always check with your RV park on the use of rugs if you are in a grass site. Some places do not want rugs on the grass.

Picnic Table Cloths:

Use a tablecloth to add to your outdoor decor, this one is too cute not to have one (or several!) AND dont forget the clips- it gets windy out there.

 

Outdoor RV Cooking Necessities

Grill:

If you like to grill, you will do it a LOT on the road. RVing and grilling go together like hot dogs and buns. You will need propane or charcoal as well. Many rigs today include an outdoor RV kitchen which will include propane hookups built in for a grill. Makes life pretty easy. Check out your own rig to see if you have this hook-up. It will make a difference in the grill you purchase and what you need to hook it up.

Marshmallow Sticks:

What could be more essential to RV camping than marshmallow sticks? These little accessories are perfect to have along when it’s s’more time. Don’t make your kids use tree branches to cook their marshmallows like the cavemen did!

 

Utensil Caddy:

Save yourself some time and pick up this cute utensil caddy so you have all of your table necessities when you need them! It has handles to bring in and out easily.

 

Outdoor RV Living Space Creation Necessities

Awning Screen/ Tie Downs:

Another of our RV camping must-haves. We simply LOVE this Vista Screen Awning Shade. It connects easily to your awning and then comes off and on with just a zipper. It closes in your outdoor area, adds shade and privacy AND ties down the awning for windy days. No, it’s not one of those items that you must-have per se, but we would not do without ours again!

Screen Room:

Outdoor spaces get buggy. It’s just a fact. So it is nice when you have the room to create an outdoor RV living space to enjoy the fresh air and not the skeeters! We have had a couple of different models but just love this Coleman room,  one person can set this up in about 5 minutes. Not too expensive and works great! If you like to be outdoors most of the time, a screen room is an essential accessory.

Outdoor RV Living Recreation Necessities

Games/ Toys:

It’s nice to have some outdoor fun 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.

Bikes:

Of course! These folding babies are all the rage these days.

We see lots of people enjoying electric bikes, we saw a couple of people enjoying theirs in Bryce Canyon as we huffed and puffed beside them.  Lots of our RV neighbors at the Pensacola Beach RV Resort in Florida had them and raved about having an electric bike!

 

Doggy Play Pen:

If you’re outdoors, you know your pet wants to be outdoors with you and now they can! This handy folding kennel keeps Fido close and safe.
