Christmas Gifts for RVers

Even if you are not using your RV now, this is a great time to pick up some gifts for your RV so that you are ready to hit the road in the spring. And, if you do use your RV during the colder months, these will come in handy no matter where you camp.

RV Cover

Keep your RV from getting green mold on it by keeping it covered. An RV cover also protects the RV from the sun and from whatever else Mother Nature decides to throw at it, including rain, snow, hail, and more.

Awning Mat

Pick up an awning mat so that you can walk out of your RV onto something comfortable. The awning mat also helps you track less dirt inside when you are parked in an area that doesn’t have grass or clean concrete.

Stainless Steel Percolator

If you’re old enough, you might remember your parents making coffee in one of these, or you may have used one for coffee. A percolator is great because it works on gas or electric stoves; and you could also make coffee outside over the fire.

Carpet Shield

Clear carpet shields come in handy when you’re camping in an area that has mud or snow. You’ll protect your carpets from ground in mud or salt-laden snow and slush, thus making your floors easier to clean.

Step Rugs

Pick up some wrap-around step rugs for the outside steps so you don’t track in a bunch of dirt or dirty snow. You can easily rinse these out when they get too dirty – or you can vacuum them if the dirt is dry. They’ll also prevent you from slipping on the steps when they are wet or icy.
