For RVers who always travel with their furry friends, this Waggle RV Pet Monitoring System can offer peace of mind when they have to stay behind. Many people think that summer is the only dangerous time for pets, but in the winter, temperatures can drop dangerously low as well.
Waggle will monitor the temperature and humidity inside a camper while owners are away and send real-time alerts directly to their phones as soon as conditions become dangerous for their pets. The pet lover on your holiday list will love the thought behind this gift! (Note: A subscription is required)
If you’re shopping for an RV owner that dreams of going off the grid, a solar-powered generator can help them do just that! While installing an entire solar panel system on the top of a rig can be a long and expensive process, Jackery Solar Generators are fully portable, easily set up, and simple to operate.
They come in many sizes, from a smaller Explorer 500 to the expansive Solar Generator 2000 Pro kit, which comes with six 200W solar panels and can practically run a basecamp.
With this RV gadget, RVers can camp in more remote areas and still benefit from the comforts of their trailer while also becoming more eco-friendly. Plus, portable panels can be moved to follow the sun without moving their RV!
Not every campsite has grills available, or there are only a few for the whole campground, and they’re already being used. Plus, grills take up way too much space to carry around in your RV – or do they?
Otzi Adventure Gear has created a genius grill that can be taken apart and laid entirely flat. The lightweight grill is easy to use and easily stored away when not in use. In addition, they come in 3 sizes, so there’s no problem finding the perfect grill for your loved one’s needs.
Most RV owners quickly realize that not all power connections are the same quality. Whether they experience a power surge that can damage appliances or insufficient power to get their AC unit up and running, power grid issues at campgrounds can be infuriating.
Understanding an RVs electrical system can be confusing, but luckily there’s a gadget on the market that is simple to use and can handle these issues. The SoftStartUP is both an AC soft starter and a surge protector which monitors and controls electrical power usage. It’s the perfect gift for any RV owner, especially for those who rely heavily on their AC unit!
Napping in a hammock just hits differently. But RV campgrounds often have to make campsites away from the trees so our RVs can fit! Help the RVer in your life ensure a cozy nap spot just outside their door by gifting them the Lazy Daze Portable Double Hammock!
This hammock is big enough for two adults to snuggle up together and comes with a sturdy steel stand that doesn’t require trees for setup. The frame then breaks down and tucks away into a convenient carrying case when they’re ready to move on to their next destination.
Campsites often have some of the best stargazing conditions since they’re away from the cities’ light pollution. If the RVer in your life is particularly fond of astronomy (or bird watching), consider giving them a portable telescope to help them get a closer look at the night sky!
This telescope is beginner friendly and compact, breaking down to store in a small backpack. Users can gaze at the night sky or use it to get a closer look at nature’s creatures during the day. It even includes a phone adapter to make taking pictures a breeze!
Some RV models may come with speakers on the outside, but if not, installing them can be a pain. The best solution is a portable speaker that you can use indoors, outdoors, and anywhere else you go.
JBL is a long-time favorite for portable BlueTooth speakers, thanks to their premium sound quality. The Flip is also waterproof, making it perfect for winter and spring camping. In addition, it comes in many colors and can connect to other speakers for party mode, making it the ideal holiday gift for music lovers.
Say goodbye to loud, smelly, heavy power generators when you need camping and emergency backup power. Instead, check out a modern, simplified version by CarGenerator.
We all associate the ability to produce power in an emergency with loud generators that require hauling gas cans and heavy machinery around for power. The clever minds at CarGenerator have created a device that uses the power-generating hardware you drove to your campsite to produce all the power you need to cook, entertain, or light up your campsite.
Setup is as simple as hooking up the CarGenerator to your car, starting the engine, and then you have power for up to 80 hours. Learn more at their website.
We’re not questioning the driving skills of the RV owner in your life, but there’s no denying that maneuvering those giants isn’t easy! Especially for owners of a fifth-wheel or travel trailer, backing into small campsites or squeezing through tight parking lots can be extremely difficult.
These Digital Wireless Backup Cameras can help lower stress rates for RV drivers. This package comes with 2 cameras that can be viewed side-by-side and placed wherever is most helpful.
According to LevelMate, this gadget can save relationships! Most experienced RVers have probably had a less-than-stellar experience trying to level their rig with their travel buddy. This gadget is meant to take the guesswork out of the leveling process and simplify the steps needed to get your RV level.
The setup is straightforward, and the app shows you the adjustments you’re making in real-time. It will even tell you how to correct leveling issues! The RVer on your holiday list will thank you each time they pull into a new campground!
A warm fire during cold weather RVing is non-negotiable. Sourcing firewood, understanding local regulations, and preventing forest fires make campfires stressful for those in charge.
This Outland Portable Propane Fire Pit makes enjoying a warm fire a much more relaxing experience. This pit connects directly to the propane tank you already have on hand and is much safer than a wood fire. Giving a portable fire pit is giving the gift of countless memories created around the campfire.
