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 2023 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.
- Cheap Tickets Looking 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.
- Home Depot Looking to renovate your RV? Or need to add to your RV tool box? Then Home Depot is the place to go!
Home Depot is also the official seller for Ryobi power tools, which I highly recommend for RV life!
- 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!
- Cabela’s Looking for a company that sells outdoor gear perfect for RV tailgating and let’s you park your RV overnight in their parking lots? Then Cabela’s is your place!
- 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 and 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.
- Good Sams Get discounts at many RV campgrounds with a Good Sams membership.

- Hotels.comSometimes you need to ditch the RV and stay in a hotel. That’s when I highly recommend that you use Hotels.com to find a great value for a hotel stay during your travels.
- Restaurants.comOn travel days, it helps to know you can get a good meal. Check out Restaurant.com for meal options. Also, tell friends and family to get gift certificates for you! I also love that their $25 Restaurant Certificates start at only $10 and additional denominations are available for purchase.
