Going RV’ing – whether on a weekend camping trip or Full-Time year round is a great opportunity to get STUFF. Stuff you need, stuff that maybe you might need… and stuff you don’t need. So here are our Top Ten Must Haves for RV Living – we will never buy.
This doesn’t mean that these most excellent products don’t have uses for us, but just not at this point in our journey to simplify our living. Let us know what you think in the comments! So without further ado here’s our list (with Amazon links) for your critique and shopping pleasure!
This post has affiliate links all over. That doesn’t diminish the thoughts we want to share with you…
You can catch the video too!
#1 Ice Maker
An Ice Maker is an indispensable tool for a good time hanging out at the campground enjoying your iced coffee, or alcoholic beverage of choice. However, we’re not on vacation (good for you if you are!). We have a day to day grind of getting up, taking care of the kids, and getting to work. Space is at a premium, and we already have a refrigerator/freezer. Do you have other opportunities where an ice maker works for you?
#2 Instant Pot
How many ways can you cook RVing it? Our basic Travel Trailer has a stove top, an oven, and a microwave. Then many campsites also have firepits and charcoal grills. So, why do we need yet another way to cook things? Well yes, because it’s cool. Get yourself an Instant Pot. This marvel of modern technology will “do the job of a slow cooker, electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, sauté/browning pan, and warming pot”* And will save you time doing it – with Bluetooth! RV Living made easy, right?
Let’s kick back and relax! In chairs that we can’t fit into our Travel Trailer’s storage berths!!! But seriously, you want good chairs to enjoy your campsite and watch the sunset. So be sure to get chairs that won’t get in the way of RV living. If you have space – go for it. But for us in our Grey Wolf 26DBH, these comfy chairs are out!
#4 Three Axle 5th Wheel
RV living for many people means pulling out all the stops and going BIG. Fifth Wheel big, with a whopping 3 Axle Fifth Wheel. God Bless You and more power to you, and I hope that all of you will be happy together. We, however, will keep it smaller with our little boat. If you are, however, in the market for any size RV/FifthWheel/Class B/C or Travel Trailer, make sure to use a convenient and FREE Buyers Worksheet from RVing Planet.
This is where I’d put a photo of a 3 axle Fifth Wheel, but they’re a little rare. Our friends at Chickery’s Travels have this beaut!
