It’s time to gear up for another RV season! With so many different gadgets available, how do you know what you really need? To help you narrow it down, here are some of our favourite RV accessories we think will help improve your life out on the road.
Wi-Fi GPS Tracker by WhereSafe
Who keeps your RV safe when you’re not around? Protect it with a WhereSafe GPS Tracker. This real-time GPS tracking device will track your RV while it’s parked or on the move and notify you of any issues. With a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, it also provides up to 5GB of high-speed internet access. As a bonus, WhereSafe now offers their own, ‘pay for what you need’ data plans to power this high-speed wireless tracker. The hardware is plug and play and once the app is downloaded onto your smartphone, the device is activated. It’s the perfect accessory for RVers who spend a lot of time out on the road!
Taking photos is a great way to share your adventures, but what do you do when you run out of space on your device? InfinitiKloud is one of the simplest and safest ways to save all your photos and data from your computer or phone. With an InfinitiKloud, you no longer need to worry about losing data to viruses, corruption or hardware failure. With a single click you can save, restore or transfer files. There’s nothing to install, no subscription fee and no need to be a computer expert!
Foldable Trekking Poles with Cork Handles by Trekology
If your RV adventures usually include exploring nearby hiking trails, Trekology’s foldable trekking poles should be on your list of must have RV accessories this year. They feature adjustable lengths, durable metal flip-lock, strong 7075 aluminum alloy construction, adjustable wrist straps, and sweat-absorbing cork grips. Each walking stick is lightweight and easily fits into a backpack or carry-on luggage. Trekking poles can reduce the impact on your ankles and knees by as much as 30% and will enhance your endurance and balance.
Military Folding Shovel by MOSFiATA
Not just your average shovel, the MOSFiATA 16-in-one military folding shovel does it all. It’s sturdy, durable, and made with 2.5mm thickened manganese steel. It can be used as a hammer, saw, screwdriver, shovel, corkscrew and more. It’s sweat proof and ergonomically designed to prevent slips. Foldable and compact, this shovel is easy to store and keep handy for camping, hiking, fishing, gardening and more. Each package includes one shovel head, two extension rods, a small knife, one broken window cone, a magnesium whistle, screwdrivers, and a portable oxford cloth storage bag.
CarGenerator is a product the size of a backpack and it will transform your vehicle into a backup electric generator. With one installed, you can power your home furnace in the winter or your fridge in summer, plus computers, internet routers and a few lights for two or more days. Take it with you on your next RV trip to watch TV, recharge your RVs batteries and more. CarGenerator works on gas, diesel, hybrid and pure electric EV vehicles.
On of our favourite new RV accessories is a subscription to Terego. An alternative to traditional campgrounds and RV parks, Terego connects RVers with over 385 Canadian producers, farmers, brewers and winemakers willing to let you park, camp and play on their beautiful properties overnight. If you enjoy destination experiences, discovering new routes and meeting locals, this subscription may be for you!
As we await another sizzling summer, it has never been more important to have reliable air conditioning. While a majority of RVers have a minimum of two air conditioners, most campgrounds only have a 30-amp connection. This means you can only start one air conditioner because of the initial power spike to get the second unit started. Installing a SoftStartRV allows both air conditioners in an RV to run without a power spike. The power saved by not having an initial spike leaves enough power available to run other appliances or medical items requiring power to run like CPAP or oxygen machines.
