Outdoor Furniture Necessities
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 🙂
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:
Outdoor Space Creation
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 also include lights to add ambiance and make friends and visitors feel welcome.
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.
Outdoor RV Living Recreation Necessities
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.
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.
