When living out of your RV full-time or even as a weekend warrior, having the right gear for your adventure is crucial. From new innovative gadgets we found this year at Outdoor Retailer to staple items you can’t leave home without, check out our list of camping, cooking, and comfort essentials that will elevate the way you RV during the 2019 holiday season.
Kitchen To Go (BASIC) – Compact Wood Burning Stove & Prep Surface
Details: The dynamic duo that every RVer should get their hands on. This nCamp kit includes the Gen2 compact wood burning stove, constructed with an innovative collapsing combustion chamber that allows it to pack flat and reduce bulk. This effective system uses both wood/biomass and solid/liquid fuels, making it the perfect stove to take with you on your camping trip. Also included is the nCamp Prep Surface that takes all the worries of carrying around a bulky cutting board with you away. This compact, lightweight and elevated work surface will give you a clean and useful place to prepare your next meal by the bonfire.
Details: Used for coffee or tea, The Café is designed specifically for camping. Compact and holding up to 12 oz., it is easy to pack and works with the nCamp stove, as well as other stoves and fuel types. Made of stainless steel and aluminum, this product will fit perfectly on your RV kitchen countertop.
Details: The “ReCool” is classic cooler brand Igloo’s first stab at disposable coolers, and they nailed it. The driving focus behind this product is to get rid of single-use Styrofoam coolers (think of those white coolers that line the shelves of gas stations) and replace them with a biodegradable option. The ReCool holds up to 75 pounds and keeps ice for hours without sweating. When you’re done with it, it’ll break down and go back into the Earth, where it was made from. That’s a win for you, and a win for the environment. Find them at REI and gas stations across America for a mere $9.99!
Details: Want to be able to have power at anytime? With a simple dip of water, you can enjoy hours of light and power. That means power for you anywhere, day or night so long as you have a water source near by. This eco-friendly alternative to power is unlike batteries, in that the power output remains constant throughout the lifetime of the cell. This product is ideal for the RVer on the go this holiday season. If you find your phone dying while exploring, or shopping for Thanksgiving dinner, let this be your new go-to technology.
Camp Line Kit
Details: Gear Aid has expanded its line of adventure tools with the debut of the Camp Line Kit, making drying and hanging your gear quick and simple. The kit comes with a 550 paracord, two camp carabiners and two line tensioners. Use it to dry your jackets and boots when backpacking or bring it out at your campground after a hike with the family to air out your gear.
Carabiner Light Kit
Details: The Carabiner LED light can be used as a night light, mini lantern, flashlight and de-stress signal. In times where you don’t need an additional source of light, the Carabiner Light Kit will convert to a camp carabiner with the paracord attachment adapter and serve as a place to hang gear at the campsite. This is ideal for those winter nights when the sunsets early but you still want to enjoy your evening outside at your campground.
Phil Lewis Artists Series Camp Lanterns
Details: This lantern will not only elevate your RV style, it also includes a revolutionary feature we’ve yet to see on other lanterns – a USB output. Use the output to charge your phone or other small devices all while using your lantern. The dim and bright settings give you a whopping 6 to 8 hours of light.
Details: MiiR’s wine collection is a beauty. Designed to enhance the wine drinking experience anytime, anywhere, the BPA free, thermo 3D vacuum insulated 750ml bottle keeps your wine of choice at its ideal temperature. That means your reds will stay at an ambient temperature and your whites, chilled. The bottle is classic, durable and made for all your RV camping experiences. Pair it with a couple of MiiR’s 10 ounce tumblers that feature a press fit lid to prevent any spilling and you’ve got yourself the ultimate wine set up. 3% of all revenue goes to environmental causes. See the bottom of your cup to track the cause your purchase is helping!
Victoria Women’s 5 Zone Heated Puffer Coat
Details: This jacket is a customer favorite that has four heat zones in the front of the jacket and one in the back. You can adjust the temperature from low to high and fun fact, the brand is 100% women-owned and created! The jacket includes a battery and charger and comes with a one year limited warranty. The puffer runs $239. If you’ve been in search for your winter down jacket, look no further.
Dog Water (Feed) Bowl
Details: Let us introduce you to the lightest and most portable dog bowl ever. Weighing in at a whopping two ounces, this 100% waterproof wax cotton bowl holds 32 ounces of liquid or food and is made in Portland, Oregon. The bowl has no seams so it folds up nice and easy and is equipped with a functional loop that allows you to attach the bowl to your pack or belt. The bowl is well worth its $35 price tag.
Details: Let’s talk about foot comfort. United By Blue’s bison socks are made with Bison fiber and wool and no joke, they are the most comfortable warm socks you’ll find on the market. Wear them while you’re camping or around the RV as house slippers. Wear them hiking this winter or lounging by the campfire after your holiday meal. Bonus – this company is at the forefront of giving back. With every product sold, the team at United By Blue removes one pound of trash from our world’s oceans and waterways.
