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.

    Get ready for Amazon Prime Day 2019 with these tips!

  • TechnoRV Want to buy RV products directly from RVers? Then TechnoRV is your place for awesome products with awesome customer support. And just good people too.

  • Snake River Farms Looking for awesome steaks for your tailgate meal? Then Snake River Farms is your go-to distributor of the finest American Wagyu beef, Kurobuta Pork and Northwest source-certified beef.

  • Cheap Tickets CheapTickets.comLooking for last minute tickets to a football game or NASCAR race? Then check-out CheapTickets to find tickets that are well, cheap. Or at least not as expensive.

  • Etsy 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 Wal-Mart.com USA, LLC 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 macys.com 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 WorldCamping World is a store dedicated to the RV lifestyle and has hundreds of products just for RVers. Shop sales for the best prices.

Recommended RV Tools

  • Garmin RV GPSRV 780 & Traffic Very rarely do I recommend specific products, but you will want an RV GPS system that will route you the best way through cities and avoid overpasses that you are too tall for. Get a Garmin RV 780 with Traffic Monitoring for your travels! You can input the specifics on your RV (height, weight, length) to avoid hazards or impassable locations.

  • Google Maps Google Maps is a great app for RVers to add to their smartphonesOne 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. But it doesn’t have all the RV-specific restrictions like the Garmin GPS (weight, height, length).

  • 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.
