Recommended Tools and Resources for You
Hello RV Tailgaters! Below is a collection of tools and resources that I have found particularly useful in my time as an RV owner.

Recommended Shopping Sites
- Amazon It’s no surprise, but Amazon is going to be at the top of every resource list. With Prime and free two day shipping, it is really a no brainer! Giant selection of products for inside and outside the RV.
- Etsy Need a unique gift or something custom made for the RV or tailgate? Then Etsy is your place! It’s where my favorite custom tailgate signs come from!
- Walmart I usually avoided Walmart before becoming an RVer, but they have a lot of RV basics that most stores don’t have (when you just can’t wait for Amazon to deliver). Plus they let us park in their lots overnight for free.
- Macy’s Macy’s is a great store to shop at – partly because they are all over the US and have a good variety of clothes, makeup and what not. Shop online, return in store if it doesn’t work for you. They are my go to for fashion shopping outside of Amazon.
- Camping World Camping World is a store dedicated to the RV lifestyle and has hundreds of products just for RVers. Shop sales for the best prices.
Recommended Travel Resources
- RV Golf Club RV Golf Club lets you park right at golf courses across the country for free, often with discounts for greens fees, pro shops, restaurants, and other amenities. Great places to park overnight on road trips. Find out how you can get six months free membership!
- Lyft Lyft has become my preferred go to app-based car service. Awesome service and better rates (in my experience) than the other popular service. All without the political/business shenanigans. Get a $5 credit when you use promo code “RVTAILGATE” to signup
- Google Maps One of my favorite phone apps is Google Maps (Google Play Store) and it’s free! It does use cellphone data but it is also always up-to-date and has current traffic information. Invaluable when you are driving around the country – or even in many international spots too.
Recommended RV Tools
- Lasko Ceramic Heater You’ll want a ceramic heater to keep warm while camping. Also useful if you have power during winter storage to keep the pipes from freezing.
- Ryobi Powertools The battery operated Ryobi Powertools are the best tools for an RVer! I love that the same batteries fit all the One+ tools! Buy them at Home Depot to ensure that they are authentic and covered by warranty.
