15 Things You Want for Summer RVing in 2022

Summer RVing should be fun and carefree. You should be able to have a great time with basic luggage and minimal equipment. But if you have an RV, why not take along a few things to make the trip even more enjoyable, easier, and safer.

Here are 15 Things You Want for Summer RVing in 2022:

Tools You Need in Your RV

1. Sewing Kit

Minor tears in clothing can lead to gaping holes after a few days of active hiking. When backpack straps begin to fray, the rest of the stitching can break, leaving you with nothing to carry hiking gear. Sewing kits are lifesavers when you are in the wild, giving you the means to make quick repairs and alterations.

2. Duct Tape

Duct Tape is a miracle product that RV and camping enthusiasts have been relying on for decades. The strong adhesive sticks to anything, and the reinforced backing means you can make adequate short-term repairs.

3. Tool Kit

Never go summer RVing without your tools. Things break, so you want to have some way of making your item useable until you get home. A small tool kit should include basic tools such as pliers, screwdrivers, and a hammer. A ratchet set and a level in your tool kit will also make RVing easier for when you park your RV and level it out.

4. Emergency Road Kit

Vehicles break down, but you do not want to be in a position where you have a puncture and no network connection to be able to phone for help. Some issues, like a broken fuse, are easy to fix if you have a pack of spares. So, get a road kit that gives you the tools and materials to make enough of a fix that you can get back to civilization.

5. Cordless Impact Driver

As easy as it is using a manual screwdriver, why not take a cordless Impact driver to speed up your tasks. If your RV has a stabilizing leg, you can save yourself both energy and time by using a cordless impact drill with an adapter to raise or lower your RV’s stabilizer.

Comfortable Eating

6. Portable Generator

When you park your RV, you will want to use a generator to power a small fridge or a cold box to keep your perishables fresh if you don’t have hookups at your site. You may also want to charge your smartphones, laptops, and other electronic devices. A portable generator also gives you the choice of using electric cooking equipment outdoors.

7. Electric Griddle

Electric griddles are easy to use and clean, and useful if you happen to be camping in a fire-free zone. And since you can cook outside, you can save your RV from the mess of smoke and splatters. An electric griddle is versatile and has enough space to cook pancakes and fried breakfasts, and you can even use it as a BBQ.

8. Deluxe Folding Grill Table

If you’re spending time cooking outdoors it can help to have table space. Foldable tables that fold up into a 6x19x37-inch bag make it easy to bring along with you in the RV. The grill table has enough space for a hot pot and griddle, along with all your plates, cutlery, and anything else you need to prepare a cooked meal.

9. Instant Pot

An Instant Pot comes with a range of modes and pre-sets that allow you to add the ingredients and then let the program do the rest. You can even set the machine to cook while you are on the road so that the food is ready and warm when you arrive at your RV site.

Safety and Hygiene

10. Headlamps

You can use a flashlight to search around in the dark for equipment, but it is hard to hold when you are working on something. A headlamp keeps both hands free for when you are assembling equipment or if you need to make repairs.

11. Laundry Line

If your RV doesn’t have room for a dryer, a laundry line can attach to the outside of your RV and extend to a tree or a pole so that you can dry your clothes out in the fresh air. Laundry lines are also handy if you have been swimming and you want somewhere to air-dry swimwear and towels.

12. Motion Sickness Patches

There is nothing more unpleasant than suffering from motion sickness and knowing that you have hours still to go on the road. Motion sickness can attack without warning, especially to people that have never suffered it before. These patches are good for a range of transport sicknesses, and each patch lasts up to 72 hours.

13. Quick-Dry Travel Towel

It can be helpful to keep things you bring with you on the small and convenient side when RVing, so you may want to use a microfiber towel that is compact and easy to carry around with you. It is amazing how much water these travel towels can absorb, and they are fast drying.

14. Walkie Talkies

It may seem like overkill, but a set of walkie-talkies gives you another way to communicate in areas that may not have a cell signal. If you are traveling with multiple vehicles or RVs, you can use them to communicate with one another. And if someone walks off to explore, they can stay in contact to tell you that everything is fine.

15. First Aid Kit

Accidents happen, and you want to have something at hand for both trivial and serious injuries. A first aid kit should have the basics for treating wounds but also emergency blankets, wound creams, and sterile pads.

Have fun this summer
