When you own an RV, you’re constantly checking out the goodies and accessories that the other people in the park have on their RV’s. Since the people in the RV parks typically come from all over the place and from every social and economic background, there are a wide variety of cool gadgets, toys, and “can’t live without” parts that could make your camping and traveling experience more fun. Let’s take a quick look at some of the more popular RV parts and accessories today.
Let’s face it, we all like to have our electric appliances everywhere we go and camping is no exception. Many of the appliances on an RV will run on propane, which really makes them convenient, but some need electricity and the batteries that store it.
They now have some very reasonable solar power kits that you can add to the top of your RV and run all of your electric only appliances, plus charge your batteries as well. This is the ultimate escape from the park accessory and now you can go ice fishing at the lake, camp in the mountains or park on the beach without having any electrical connection.
With enough battery backup, you could last almost indefinitely and not have to use a generator. Generators are loud, use a lot of fuel, and aren’t really made to last, but solar panels usually have a 25 year lifetime.
Getting Satellite TV And Internet Completes The Deal
Keeping in contact with all of your friends, relatives and fellow RV’rs can be difficult when you don’t have internet. Now, you can get an automatically aimed dish that mounts on top that will find the satellite for you. You can have TV from back home and internet to connect to anywhere you need.
Once you get set up with the dish, all you need is a WiFi router so you can relax in your lounge chair with a laptop and browse the internet in style.
Add An Awning To Extend Your Living Space
You didn’t drive 1,000 miles across the country to sit inside your RV, so putting a large, motor-operated awning on the side is like doubling the size of your living space. You can haul out your gas barbecue and not have to cook inside and heat up the kitchen.
By increasing the size of your space and welcoming nature, you will be able to spend far more time camping without getting claustrophobia or on the nerves of your traveling companion. Plus, if you like to entertain guests, there is no better way than to have a large covered area outside with plenty of shade and protection from the rain.
Spending your retirement in an RV is a dream that many American have. By adding just a few of the most popular RV parts and accessories, you can make your camping life far more comfortable and visit thousands of more locations that aren’t RV parks or campgrounds. After all, expanding your horizons is what it’s all about.
