Kindle Paperwhite

Are you shopping for an RVer who loves to read? Imagine for a second how enjoyable it is to settle into a zero gravity chair by the river and read a book while dinner simmers on the campfire.

That’s a beautiful vision and it’s part of the joy of an outdoor lifestyle. However, one key thing to keep in mind is RVers have limited space in their rig. There is essentially no room for the number of books we would all love to bring with us on the road.

As a great alternative, RVers love having a Kindle. It’s the ultimate space saver. It also enables travelers to purchase and read a new book at any time. No need to try parking the big rig in a bookstore parking lot or wait by the mailbox for the next delivery. This is a gift that keeps on giving.

For a small space like an RV, this handy gizmo is top-notch at creating some fantastic meals to fill your belly. So I said my wife is a fan…but from a consumer standpoint, I am just as much a fan as she is!

We have enjoyed some incredible meals in our travel trailer. My wife claims they are super easy to prepare, thanks to this appliance in shining armor.

And I can assure you the Instant Pot will continue to be used on a regular basis even if or when RV traveling comes to an end. It is a highly versatile and useful tool in the kitchen. Cooks love a good time saver and this is one item that makes mealtime a breeze.

So if your RV-owning loved ones are into cooking their own meals in the RV, you can’t go wrong with the Instant Pot

They have various size multi-cooker pots to fit every need so take a look and choose the one that seems right for the RV owners on your list.

You may also want to combine the gift with an Instant Pot recipe book to help get them started in the kitchen.

Espresso Machine

We have seen some amazing espresso setups in RVs. There is nothing quite like waking up in the morning and stepping out of the RV with a hot cup of coffee. It somehow tastes better in the fresh open air, in the mountains or by the stream.

When it comes to gifting a coffee machine, keep in mind that RVs and campervans come in many different sizes. Kitchens inside a vehicle are unsurprisingly quick snug with minimal counter space. I recommend knowing in advance what size espresso machine your friends might need.

This Nespresso Essenza Mini by De’longhi is small and would be perfect if they lack counter space. It comes in different colors (black, red or green). And, depending on your budget, you could bundle the gift with a variety pack of Starbucks capsules.

Nespresso Essenza Espresso Machine
$161.79

Programmable espresso machine can help you easily create delicious coffee drinks. Other De'Longhi models include options such as aerator or frother.

This compact machine weighs only 4.4 pounds.

The fancy espresso machine by Gevi makes 2 espressos at a time and has a built in milk frother. The dimensions are bigger at about 9″ x 14.5″ x 14″. The nice thing about this machine is the ability to make a variety of coffee drinks, including a cappuccino, latte or flat white.

The espresso powder filter accessory is included so you don’t need to buy specific pods. However, you could also purchase the capsule portafilter accessory to accommodate espresso capsules. It’s always nice to have option while on the road!

Gevi Espresso Machine

This powerhouse espresso machine includes a milk frother for latte, macchiato, and other specialty drinks. Removable tank makes refills and cleaning easier.

Heating prep time is about 1-2 minutes. The water reservoir holds 1.5 liters.

At approximately 20 pounds, this machine is not light. Take weight into consideration.

It’s important to get one with a telescoping stand. Why? Because quite a few RV parks have signs that ask you not to put your grills on their picnic tables. When we started RVing, we had a tabletop grill, and let me tell you, grilling while having to squat down to the ground was not fun.

That’s why we highly recommend one that can either go on the tabletop or the ground. This portable gas grill by Cuisinart is the perfect solution.

Not only are these towels practical, but they also make a really nice decor item. I also love that the towels remind us of our friendship with the family who gave them to us.

Here are a few that caught our eye:

Handy RV Gifts for Dad or Mom


Every RVer has to learn to be a little handy and fix things when they go broken. Because whether you go RVing only on the weekends or you’re full-time, you know things break.

RVing is also messy! So we’ve added a cleaning tool or two to help you keep things neat and tidy. Or at least semi-neat and tidy.

Tool Set

Every RVer should have a great toolset on the road with them. Trust me when I say it will definitely come in handy! This is one item that will be used over and over again.

This Cartman toolset is also lightweight, coming in at around 5.8 pounds. That’s important when deciding what to bring with you on your RV trip. Because cargo weight matters and the lighter the camper, the better the travels!

Best Gifts for Decorating an RV


One of our most popular articles is about how to make your RV feel like home. When we first bought our trailer, Julie couldn’t wait to get in there and make it feel cozier. She’s all about that RV hygge.

Here are a few gift ideas to add some personality and coziness to your home on wheels, both inside and outside.

Printable RV Decor

Printable RV Decor

Take a peek at the TREKKN shop where you can purchase budget-friendly printable RV decor.

This is one of our favorite ways to decorate our travel trailer. The prints are lightweight enough to frame and hang on the wall with 3M command strips. It’s also simple and enjoyable to swap out the designs, or change it during the holidays.

To give this as a gift to someone, simply print at home or send it to your local office supply store. We like to print ours at Office Max or a similar store that offers card stock.

After you’ve printed it, purchase a frame, frame it, wrap it and you have a fantastic gift that you put some thought into.

You’ll find printables for:

  • Class As
  • Class Cs
  • Travel Trailers
  • Fifth Wheels
  • Small Campers
  • National Parks
  • General Travel Printables

Check out the TREKKN shop for a wide variety of RV related printables.

Double Polar Fleece Blankets

This gift idea was sent in by a TREKKN reader and we couldn’t agree more!

Cozy blankets are a necessity for fall and winter camping. You can even buy one for their furry camping companions like this one.

Camping Blanket

A lighter-weight outdoor blanket makes a really nice gift. Especially one with a unique design like the Rumpl blankets, which are also lightweight, washable, and quite cozy. They are perfect for curling up next to the campfire.

Rumpl The Original Puffy Camping Blanket
$125.00

Rumpl makes this beautiful outdoor quilt. It's packable, easily portable, and warm.

Rumpl offers their camping blankets in many different designs and colors. One of our sons had his Pendleton blanket with him during our full-time travels. He used it in his bunk bed and never needed anything heavier.

Fast forward a few more years and he still has that blanket. It’s been quite handy for his life in Alaska!

Happy Camper Decor

We rounded up a list of some of the coolest happy camper decor & gifts around. From mugs and art to t-shirts and throw pillows, there’s a little something for everyone.

Here are two of my favorites:

One of the easiest ways to decorate your space is with artwork you just print, frame, and hang with Command Strips. Or with signs like the one above.

If you’re giving printable artwork as a gift for RVers, go ahead and print it out and frame it for them. You could give your RVing friend a Happy Campers bundle which includes a framed picture, a mug, and a cozy blanket.

We purchased one for ourselves and it was a great conversation starter with other RVers. We put it on our slide-out along with our other sticker collection.

Sticker maps are great gifts for travel trailer owners, 5th wheel owners, motorhomes…any type of recreational vehicle.

We’ve seen RVers attach these to their slides, by their door, and on the back of their rig so people can see where they’ve been as they’re driving to their next destination.

Portable Propane Fire Pit

Several months into our extended RV road trip, some good friends of ours in California gave us a propane fire pit as a gift to use in our travels.

After sitting around their similar fire pit on the deck of their beautiful home, we decided we needed to buy one. And then, we didn’t have to! (Thanks again guys!)

Up to that point, we had encountered many locations that did not allow wood-burning fires at all. There were some that had complete fire bans and did not even allow propane fire pits, but many of them did allow them.

So we knew we were missing out on some “flame time”! And I love a good fire.

Outdoor Propane Gas Fire Pit
$159.9926

  • 10' hose for attachment to 20lb propane tank

Because of their gift, we have had far more opportunities to sit outside under the stars and enjoy a warm fire. And we think of them every time it comes out, there’s no doubt about that.

If you want a memorable and very enjoyable gift that will remind them over and over again how much you care, a fire pit is the way to go.

Outdoor String Lights

There are both practical and fun reasons why camper owners love string lights and rope lights.

The practical reasons: They help you see at night, they help keep little rodents like mice away and they provide a little extra security if you keep them on overnight. Knowing you’re sleeping in a safe space can really make a difference in your RVing experience.

The fun reasons: They look great and add an extra fun element to RVing. I love to drive through an RV park at night and during the holiday season to see how different RVers have hung their string lights and decorated their camping spot.

Here are a few different outdoor lights to consider for your gift giving:

Zero Gravity Chairs

Right after we sold our house and moved into the travel trailer, I threw my back out. Not fun at all. So what I needed was a chair that took all the pressure off my lower back.

That’s when a zero gravity chair became a lifesaver. We purchased a Timber Ridge Zero Gravity Recliner, which was a little pricey, but well worth the investment.

Gifts for RV Owners

Not only did it help me recover from the back injury, but I use that chair every single day. It was perfect for some serious relaxing outside by the campfire. I even brought it in the travel trailer a couple of times for movie night.

TIMBER RIDGE Zero Gravity Recliner

RV Club Memberships & Gift Cards


Did you know you can gift someone a membership to what we consider a must-have membership for every RVer? You can also gift them a membership where they can explore all the National Parks they want.

Keep reading to learn about these ideas that make the perfect gift for RVers.

Amazon Gift Card

Here’s the truth: At the start of any RV adventure, the vast majority of essential RV accessories are available on Amazon.

When you’ve got the perks of a Prime membership, it saves an enormous amount of time so why not?! There are at least 80,000+ listings for RV accessories on Amazon! That can be overwhelming, to say the least.

An Amazon gift card is a great idea for RV travelers because as get on the road, they will inevitable need to fix something, store something, exterminate something, or read something. Allow your friends to choose the perfect something at the perfect time for them.

It makes the perfect gift for travel trailer owners and 5th Wheelers alike (and you won’t need to figure out what they already have or how much counter space is available for an espresso machine.)

There are an endless list of items that RVers need, including a wireless backup camera, a portable power station, or solar panels (a priority item for many RV travelers).

With your Let them decide and they’ll remember your gift every time they have off-grid power for hot water or can safely back up to the pump at the gas station.

Annual Entry Pass to U.S. National Parks

If there is one thing that has been very consistent throughout our travels, it is the use of our America the Beautiful National Park Pass.

I can’t even tell you how many visits we have made to the parks overall (we’ve visited 15 different parks), but I can tell you without a doubt that this pass has saved us many hundreds of dollars.

With this annual membership, the RV owner in your life, and four persons in their vehicle, can explore the national parks until their hearts are content for just $79.99!

Now, you would think that the best (and cheapest) place to buy this pass online is through the National Parks official website. But you would be wrong.

Buying the pass through REI actually saves you $10 that you would normally be charged by the government website for the online (or mail) purchase.

If you want to throw an extra $10 in to support the parks, then, by all means, purchase through the NPS website.

I can’t put into words how much our national parks experiences have added to our travels. Without those experiences, our continental adventure would have been nothing close to what it has been.

There is really no other gift I could recommend more highly than the National Parks Pass. It’s one of those unique gifts for RV owners that will be well appreciated.

And if you’re looking for retirement gifts for RV owners, I encourage you to check out the Senior pass option if your recipient is 62 years or older, the annual pass is only $20!

As far as gifts for RV owners go, it doesn’t get much more unique and memorable than Harvest Hosts. This membership offers RV owners the chance to visit over 600+ unique locations around the continent for only $79 per year.

Harvests Hosts Membership

The locations they can visit include wineries, breweries, cideries, farms and other unique spots. And there is NO CHARGE for visiting and parking an RV at these locations for a night or two.

So, if you’ve got some wine or beer connoisseurs on your list, this gift gives them the opportunity to explore off-the-grid locations, meet great people AND enjoy their favorite beverage produced on site!

And the chance to get away from the normal “RV parking lot” experience and really get their hands into some local goods may be the best part of this gift.

We have loved our Harvest Hosts experiences and hope to have many more in the future. It is a gift that keeps on giving.

Practical Gifts for RV Owners


This section is focused on practical gifts for RV owners because it includes items they’ll use on a daily basis. While these items may not seem like the most personal or exciting gifts to give, trust us when we say RVers will love them!

Andersen RV Levelers

This is the best camper leveling kit on the market. Yes, that’s my opinion. I stand by it after months and months of setting up and breaking down camp countless times.

If there is one RV accessory for the exterior of our travel trailer that I am more thankful for than any other, it definitely has to be these Andersen Levelers.

Andersen Hitches RV Leveler System
$85.99

These drive-on levelers make trailer leveling fast, precise, and easy. Fit trailers up to 30,000 pounds with tires up to 32".

The Andersen Levelers are also included in our list of top RV accessories. When it comes to RV travel, levelers are a must have item.

The standard leveling block kit is another option, but these require a tedious guessing game to find the right number of blocks needed to level the RV. In my opinion, that leads to unnecessary frustration, especially after a long drive.

If your beloved RV owner has a rig that does not include a self-leveling system (most likely a travel trailer), you will absolutely be their new favorite human for introducing them to Andersen Levelers. If they tell you they already have blocks for leveling, find out if they’re the standard block kit and surprise your friends with the Andersen.

It will become one of their favorite RV gifts they’ve ever received!

As you can tell from the design, it’s simply a matter of rolling one side of the RV on top of these wedged levelers until the height is just right.

Then you just throw the chocks under the levelers and walk away! Simple as that. (Of course, don’t forget to set the emergency brake!)

As an alternative, Camper Levelers by Rophor include anti-skid pads and grip channels on prevent the levelers from sliding backward as the tire makes contact. We haven’t tried these in person, but by the looks of it and the reviews, it’s worth checking out.

And, the 2-pack comes with a carrying case. We love tidy storage options in the RV!

Rophor Camper Ramp Levelers
$49.99

Fits trailers up to 35,000 pounds and tires up to 32". Designed with a double non-slip grip for faster leveling than stacking blocks.

Bottom line: Friends don’t let friends use a block leveling system.

As an accessory gift item to combine with the levelers, consider these stick-on graduated levels. These inexpensive accessories are simple to install on the back of a camper. The process of finding the right position for the RV is simplified when using these levels.

Telescoping Extension Ladder

We purchased this ladder before we left on our 17-month RV trip and it was one of the best purchases to date.

It got used over and over again for getting up to check on the roof, brushing leaves off the slideout and other RV repairs. And because it’s telescopic and lightweight (only 24 pounds), it easily fits in the passthrough of our travel trailer.

This ice maker gives you ice in about 6 minutes and it comes highly recommended from our TREKKN community!

rv gift ideas

Ask any full-time RVer what one of their favorite topics to discuss with other full-timers is and they’ll tell you…Internet connectivity.

It’s a hot topic for sure!

Some weekend and seasonal RVers like to go totally off-grid and aren’t worried about connectivity. But if you’re full-time or work from home, an internet connection is a must.

Cell Phone Signal Booster

There are times you’re on an RV trip and you’re perfectly fine with no cell signal. But then there are other times when you don’t want to be quite as unplugged, but you’re in a spot where the cell signal is very weak.

Many times RV parks are located in these weird dead spots. Right outside the gate, the signal is fine but then you drive into the park and boom, no signal.

We’ve also experienced times where your RV neighbor has a signal, but you don’t. Even a few yards can make the difference. The weBoost cell phone signal booster has saved us on many occasions.

These boosters are based on innovative technology that must be compatible with the phone carrier signals. Because of this, new version are introduced fairly often.

The weBoost Drive Reach RV is a cell phone signal booster kit that boosts 4G LTE and 5G signals for all major US carriers (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and more). The booster works by amplifying the signal received from the exterior antenna.

If the primary need is during long stays in remote areas, we recommend the weBoost Destination RV Signal Booster, which is designed for stationery use. It has a 25′ collapsible pole for extended antenna height and boosts 5G and 4G LTE for all major US carriers.

  1. An espresso machine ! I never would have thought. My best friend and her family have an RV and travel around in that when they go on vacation because her son has very bad nut allergies – therefore, no airplanes and she used to scrub the hotel rooms for 2 hours before they got the RV. I will have to mention this site to her 🙂

    1. Hi Christine! Thank you for sharing our site with your friend. I never would have thought about the fact that RV travel would be so much safer for those with allergies.

    1. Hi Judy, that is actually an excellent suggestion! We did not use one during our 17 month RV adventure…but looking back it sure would have come in handy instead of trying to keep a large bag of ice in the tiny freezer.

      I think we will have to add that one to the list. Thanks for your feedback!

  2. I disagree with some of your items. I have been living in my rv for almost 3 years. The ice maker. I don’t need it. I have a residential fridge. My ice fits in my freezer.
    Camping chairs I believe that is a personal choice.
    Decoration I also believe it’s your personal choice.
    Insta pot I don’t have one. I just use my crockpot.
    But everyone is different we all have different tastes and styles. We all don’t by the same rvs. We buy what floor plan fits our live style and how we live.
    I believe we all make mistakes on what we think we need.
    So buy what you like and live the life you love.
    Be you!!!

    1. We couldn’t agree more, Nancy. These are all personal choices and each item will fit each person differently.

      And there is NO doubt we all make mistakes with our perceived “needs”, whether we are talking about RVing or just life in general! 🙂

      We wish you the best in your 2022 travels! Peace.
