You probably see again and again all the “RV Must Haves” and those are great for getting started – but how about if you want that LUXURY RV life with all the extras? Then this list is for you!
Now just because I say “luxury” doesn’t mean all these items are expensive, but more that you don’t need them to get started, and would likely get by fine without them!
These RV products will really
Here are the top 13 things to upgrade your RV experience (or gift to that camper in your life this year!)
Update – this article had such an amazing response that I also wrote one on the Top 11 OUTDOOR RV items you don’t need… but that can make camp life
I wanted to let you know that I am an Amazon affiliate, and will get a very small cut if you purchase anything through these links. But these items are all awesome so don’t worry! More info about this is here
Foam Topper for your RV Bed
This is probably one of the first upgrades for most RVs and travel trailers just due the fact that the factory beds in campers are usually really terrible! This is especially a good buy for those of us with hip or back problems – many people have said they slept better on this mattress than theirs at home!
Zinus 4 Inch Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress Topper, Short Queen
- Castor Oil and Green Tea help eliminate odor
- CertiPUR-US Certified for durability, performance, and content
Window Covers (Temp Control + Darkener)
Everyone knows how hot (and cold) RVs can get, as well as how darn bright they can be! Blinds only go so far which make additional window covers a great option. If you like afternoon naps, or perhaps have kids who’s bedtime is before he sunsets (like mine!) then these Camco window covers are perfect for you!
Camco Sunshield Reflective Door and Window Lining
- Hook and loop fastener for easy installation
- Multiple sizes to choose from to fit your RV windows
Counter Top Ice Maker
If you’re like me, and have a super small travel trailer fridge, then you might also be using a large cooler for all the overflow of refrigerated items. With summer time, there’s always many cool beverages in there as well as TONS of kid food (how in the world do the kids eat so much?) Anyways, having a counter top ice maker will you tons of money over time buying ice at the store as well as saving you the trip!
hOmeLabs Portable Ice Maker Machine for Counter Top
- 26 lbs of ice over 24 hour period
- Quiet and energy efficient
Fridge Fan (for even distribution of air in small travel trailer refrigerators)
Do you ever have your milk frozen in one part of the fridge, and your meat feeling a little warmer than it should only one shelf down? Then you want this guy – not only will it help keep your RV fridge cooler, it will also help distribute that cool air much better! As an added bonus, this RV fridge fan has an activated charcoal (that you can replace!) to help filter out stinky food smells!
Camco Fridge Airator with On/Off Switch
- Battery operated
- Replaceable carbon filter for air filtration
Ninja Coffee Maker for the RV
When you’re constantly on the go, coffee is always a must (atleast for me) but if you’re on the go after boondocking, or perhaps just traveling somewhere where there aren’t many coffee shops, it can be nice to know you can just make your own delicious morning cuppa! This coffee maker does it all – tea, coffee, frothy drinks, and it even has a thermal carafe should you need it! With multiple options and sizes, the Ninja Coffee maker is definitely a big way to up your camping experience!
Ninja Hot and Cold Coffee Brewing System
- Traditional, cold brew, frothy, tea and many more options
- 6 Brew sizes for every need
Mini Washer/Spinner for Travel Trailer Camping Laundry!
If you’re going on an extended trip, you need to either 1)Pack alot of clothes or 2) Plan on stopping at a laundromat half way through – and who the heck wants to make a detour into town for laundry? Having a washer saves a trip, but also saves a pretty decent hunk of money if you plan on camping often! This is a very reasonably priced unit, and still gets your clothes super clean (which is important after days of exploring!)
I will link both an electric and non electric so you can check out which suits you better! Another note – none of these dry, just spin, so you might want to check out something like this to help hang dry lots of stuff at once!
Giantex Portable Compact Full-Automatic Laundry
- Multiple options for load size, water amount, and cycle choices
- Automatic and programmable
- Important – Spins, not Dries!
Non electric washer for camping
Here is the second washing option I talked about to avoid the laundro mat!
The Laundry Alternative Wonderwash
- 5 lbs of laundry in a couple of minutes
- Water efficient
Lightweight Stick Vaccum Cleaner
While sweeping and such will do the job most of the time, everything just feels cleaner when you actually get to use a vaccum! This is especially true if it’s as lightweight and easy to use like this one!
Now I know alot of you might have heard about Dyson sticks, however those are HUNDREDS of dollars, and alot of them had bad reviews… this one is much less expensive, and is comparable in quality and power to the Dyson!
Tineco A10 Hero Cordless Stick Vacuum
- Only 2.87 lbs making it very easy to work with
- Continuous Power Mode (AKA an On switch so you don’t have to hold it the whole time like the Dyson!)
It probably doesn’t surprise you that RVers like food fast and easy (with minimal space needed!) so the instant pot definitely fills that need! It’s all the rage for homes, why not use it in your home on wheels too? These guys can cook food that would take HOURS in 10-20 minutes! Here’s is the most popular model for RVs!
Instant Pot Duo Mini 3 Qt 7-in-1
- Doesn’t release any steam, heat or cooking smells!
- Replaces up to 7 kitchen appliances (and cooks, on average, 70% faster than normal!)
- Perfect for up to 4 people (though there are of course size upgrades!
A NICE RV Shower Head!
If you’ve ever showered inside of a camper, then you’re probably familiar with that unsatisfying weak flow that you get! And to make matters worse, when you try to replace it, you find that most RVs have weird fittings and you actually need a specific thread type and such to get it all to work! Well, finally Oxygenics came out with an amazing shower head and everything you need to make it work!
Oxygenics RV Shower Head with Hose + Pipe Thread
- 5 Spray settings that work well with low pressure supplies
- Non-stick internal parts prevent clogging and corrosion for consistent performance.
Air fryers are a great way to make healthier food with no oil, so why not bring it on your next camp trip if you love fries or wings? It is a great item that will fit on your countertop, as well as a great way to change up your typical hotdog camping dinners (I love them… but I eat them for 7 days straight camping because they’re so easy!!)
5.5 Qt ENCLOV Air Fryer
- No smokiness during use
- Frying basket can detatch for easy cleaning!
A sweet RV recliner to get rid of that uncomfortable jack knife sofa!
So this is probably the only thing that’s really “luxury” and not just a fun extra item to enhance your RV experience! While a recliner set up won’t be ideal for every family (I have 3 kids, I don’t think I’d ever have time to use it! =P) for alot of people, this is the ultimate upgrade!
RecPro RV Zero Wall Loveseat
- Only needs 3 inches behind it to recline (which is why it’s perfect for RVs with limited space!)
- Modular frame allows you to use optional centerpiece as well as get it into your travel trailer easier!
Camping can be pretty darn comfy – anything missing from this list for even more comfort in the RV?
Let me know if I should add something to this list! While I love the idea of tent camping, I do also love being able to enjoy the views from my cozy camper… and I intend to make it even more comfy as time goes on!
