This gift guide has a little bit of everything, from uber-practical gear to aesthetically pleasing add-ons for any RV enthusiast.
Even if your RV is the comfiest, coziest little hovel in the world, you still want to be able to stretch your legs and get outside. A classic picnic table is the perfect way to take full advantage of the outdoors. This foldable version makes the most of your RV’s small space and can go anywhere with you! And, if you don’t have an RV or camper, it’s great to bring along to your next camping outing.
No matter how your pal travels, they probably appreciate a fresh cup of coffee. The coolest, vintage way to brew a cup of joe is using a percolator. This classic enamel pot brews 8 cups and would look awesome sitting in a tiny camper kitchen… and works for normal tent camping, too!
One of the great things about RVs is that you can decorate them to fit your style! These retro trailer string lights would look adorable hung above an RV’s bed, under a camper’s awning, or anywhere you might be looking for a touch of camping inspiration.
Most people, even the most ardent RVers, won’t get to spend all of their time on the road. For those times when they’re stuck at home, there’s this LEGO RV. Building and displaying this camper will definitely bring back memories of vacations past and inspire everyone to get out traveling again. It comes with all of the little details, including a fold-down awning, a boat, and a bear. And… it’s a three-in-one set, so you can use the pieces to also create a summer cabin and a yacht. But the RV is hands-down the coolest!
What’s more old-school than a physical book? This guide to scenic drives is sure to inspire everyone, from the most well-seasoned RVer to the armchair adventurer. It’s got loads of detailed info on a huge variety of routes, and plenty of enticing pictures, making it perfectly useful. Of course, any travel guide, photography book, or even camping cookbook would also make a perfect gift.
The best way to make your RV campsite comfier is to add some shade. This easy-to-set-up canopy works anywhere, from the tailgating parking lot to your favorite park’s campground. It’s easy to disassemble, too, and folds up so it’ll fit into your camper or car. Plus, the material offers ample protection from the sun and its UV rays!
The fastest way to add a touch of personality to your campsite? Lawn flamingos. They’ll make your RV feel right at home wherever it’s parked. You’ll often find vintage RVs with these pink plastic birds set up out front, adding to the old-school flair. They’re the perfect old-school accessory for any retrotastic RVer!
BONUS: Airstream Basecamp
Or, you can go all-out and make someone’s dreams come true by buying them their fantasy trailer. The Basecamp is Airstream’s most versatile trailer, and would make a perfect first camper. The design is lightweight and can be towed by any midsized SUV, but it still seats up to five, and sleeps two. It’s got a sleek design that takes the classic aluminum and makes it modern and aerodynamic. Plus, features like a solar prewire kit, USB ports, hot water, a full bathroom, and more mean that it’s got all the amenities to keep you comfy on the road.
