As long as you’re on the road, your RV is your home. But even the fanciest RV won’t come with all the accessories and amenities you need to live comfortably on a long road trip. By bringing a few extras along for the ride, you can ensure that your trip is as safe, fun and enjoyable as possible. Today we’ll look at just a few of our favorite RV travel accessories.
You may not always have Internet access to check the weather when you’re on the road, but chances are you’ll always be within range of a NOAA weather radio station. A portable weather radio can give you advance warning of nasty storms headed your way, and provide you with regular updates should you get caught in an unexpected storm system.
Solar Device Charger
Sure, you can charge devices from your RV battery in a pinch, but it never hurts to have a backup. With a solar charger, you can replenish things like cellphones and GPS units with free energy any time the sun is out. If you’re feeling really ambitious, you could even consider installing a solar power rig on the roof of your RV to give you a virtually endless supply of free energy.
Flashlights are great tools to have around, but headlamps are even better. Why? Because they leave your hands free to do things like change a tire at night, or dig through a dark storage compartment to find a piece of cookware. Once you get used to having a headlamp, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without one.
Roadside Assistance Card
If you’re heading out into remote areas, this is a must-have item. Whether it’s from your insurance carrier or a company like AAA, a roadside assistance card will pay for itself even if you only have to use it once or twice a year. Plus, it grants you the peace of mind of knowing that if something goes wrong on the road, you won’t be stranded miles away from civilization.
The confined quarters of an RV can get a little muggy, particularly if you have a lot of people onboard or you have a penchant for taking hot showers at campsites. Keeping a small portable humidifier on hand can allow you to enjoy those showers without turning the interior of your RV into a rolling rainforest.
