Are you looking for gifts for RV owners? We’ve collected more than one hundred fun ideas! We’re listing all the best gift ideas here. This gift guide is full of fun gifts for RV travelers. Whether you are looking for a Christmas or a birthday gift, you will find an excellent gift for RV campers.
Things You Need To Know To Buy The Perfect Gift For Your Rver
Are They A Full-Time or Part-Time RVer?
A part-time RVer may want to escape cooking when they camp while a full-time RVer is more likely to use their kitchen and therefore want new gadgets.
What Type Of Rig Do They Camp With?
There is a lot of difference between storage space in a travel trailer versus a class B van. And most travel trailers will not have the storage space of a fifth wheel.
How Big Is There RV?
Travel trailers start at around 15 feet and go all the way up to 40 feet. That is a 25-foot difference and you can fit a lot of stuff in those additional feet.
Do They Stay At Established Campgrounds, Or Do They Prefer Dispersed Camping?
A couple who stays in campgrounds with paved sites and full amenities will not appreciate the gift of sand tracks like a couple who camp off dirt roads at sites with little to no amenities.
What Type Of Adventures Do They Like?
Is their idea of camping lazing around a campfire in the evenings and spending their days lounging around with a good book? Or are they the type to ditch their rig all day to hike, bike, and kayak?
How Long Have They Been RVers?
You would really have to know seasoned camper owners well to know exactly what gifts on this list they don’t already have. To play it safe, you might want to get seasoned RV travelers like us an Amazon gift card.
For new RV owners, it isn’t going to be as hard to pick an incredible gift from this list.
What Is Their Travel Speed?
Those whose camping style is to sit in place for a week or more tend to set up more outdoor living stuff than those who camp somewhere new every night.
How Many People Do They Travel With?
A newlywed RV couple will want different items than an RV couple who travels with three kids under 5.
Why Trust Us To Provide You With A Great RV Gift Ideas?
We bought our first camper, a pop-up tent trailer when our eldest hit his teenage years; he is almost 30 now. Over the years, we have experienced all types of different ways to enjoy RV camping.
We have owned two pop-ups, two travel trailers and a truck camper in that time. We have been weekend warriors with kids and now without. We lived the full-time family RV lifestyle in 2017 for close to 6 months when we took all three of our children on an epic RV trip of a lifetime. Jack is now a travel RN, meaning we often live full-time in our RV for several months, parked in one place.
We certainly don’t own every item on this list, but we own quite a few and I took the time to read the reviews before recommending the products.

Outdoor Recreational Gear
Most people who RV are into some outdoor recreation, whether fishing, hiking, biking, hunting, rock hounding or more. And with those hobbies comes the need for essential equipment and fun add-ons.
We purchased two of these super affordable inflatable Kayaks and are incredibly pleased with them.
Foldable e-bikes can often fit in the storage bays of Fifth Wheels and large motorhomes. E-bikes can come in handy when you don’t want to maneuver your large tow vehicle around the tight inner workings of some state and national parks.
No more wet seats! This bike tent is easy to set up and folds away into a tiny compact bag.
Before you buy gifts for an RVer’s kitchen, you need to know how big it is. A person with a class B Van, for instance, probably isn’t going to have room to store a portable ice maker, but they can fit a mini waffle maker.
The Instant Pot is the most used kitchen appliance in our travel trailer.
For those who love their slow-cooked stews and chilis, a glass lid for the instant pots is a practical gift.
This set comes with what you need to hard-boil eggs and bake cakes in the instant pot.
I would not suggest this for small RV owners, but an ice maker is a nice luxury for those with rigs with plenty of storage.
Make their Hotel on Wheels complete by allowing them to make a hot waffle breakfast.
Double their counter space.
One more way to add storage space to an RV.
If they love to cook, but their RV is too small for an oven, this is a great compact solution.
The Omnia Stove Top Oven is another oven alternative for those without an oven.
Increase their kitchen storage with this set of pans.
Drawer space is precious in an RV; help your friend increase theirs with a magnetic knife strip.
Perfect for making use of wall space near the stove.
BBQers and Smokers
28. BBQ Sauces And Grilling Spices
We have this set and love how they act as both a bowl and a plate. They also fit a small paper plate inside them should you want to make clean-up a breeze. And they are great for spill-proof fireside meals.
The only pan needed for campfire cooking! It is a deep skillet, a Dutch oven, and a frying pan in two pieces.
I use these handle covers on our cast iron frying pan when I use it on our propane camp stove and I really like it. No more getting a big potholder in the food as I move the pan around.
This cast iron cookware must-have makes a great stocking stuffer.
We use our double-sided grill pan to grill steaks over the campfire.
These take up less space than other styles of roasting sticks.
There is a super fan following for pie iron campfire cooking. It is so popular that you can buy cookbooks specifically for pie-iron recipes.
Help the campfire cook’s back and knees by giving them a folding stool they can sit on while cooking.
This camp cookbook has won several awards and has rave reviews on Amazon.
Ensure the safety of the hands of the cook with a pair of Ove Gloves.
If the RVer you are buying for likes to boondock and cook over the campfire, a folding grill is a great gift idea as most boondocking sites don’t come with a fire pit with a grill.
With recipes like Dark Chocolate Raspberry Carmel Campfire Ban S’mores, you will be sure to keep the campfire cook inspired all year long with this recipe book.
Using a collapsable pour-over is my favorite way to make coffee while RVing.
Here is my favorite size and style of coffee mug for camping.
The perfect gift for those who love camping and espresso.
I have one of these in our house and one in our RV–that is how much I like them. These don’t take up a lot of space and work great!
If the camper on your list has limited electricity where they camp, then a hand-crank coffee grinder is the way to go.
This compact coffee press is highly rated and doesn’t take up a lot of space.
For The RV Loving Pet
A Kindle is a gift that will allow your loved one to bring an entire library of books wherever their RV takes them.
My son bought me one of these as a gift and I love it. It is handy for reading in bed and a great hands-free light for doing almost anything in the RV while others sleep.
63. Kindle Unlimited Subscription
Many full-time RVers don’t have access to public libraries so give them the next best thing with a Kindle Unlimited Subscription.
64. Audible Plus Subscription
If the reader on your gift list prefers audiobooks, gift them a membership to Audible Plus. They will get one book each month to keep and then get to enjoy the audible plus library of audiobooks and podcasts.
65. The Dear Bob And Sue Series
I devoured all the Bob and Sue books. Most of their adventures don’t take place in an RV, but they do travel to many places RVers do–like National Parks.
Read about the RVing adventures of a newly wedded couple who decided to travel to all 50 states on their honeymoon.
RVing is not without its hiccups and most of those hiccups require a few basic tools to fix.
Our telescoping ladder is one of the most used tools in our RV.
81. An RV Handyman Gift Basket Filled With…
Campers get dirty. An extension pole makes it easier to clean them.
Many RV fixes happen in tight spaces where a hands-free light is necessary.
We once woke up in our RV at the Grand Canyon to a good foot of snow outside. My husband ended up using a dustpan to dig us a pathway. His digging would have gone much faster if he had a folding snow shovel.
We keep a collapsable 5-gallon bucket in our truck camper. It takes up little space and works great for holding water for cleaning tasks when we need it.
It might be because we have a 30-amp travel trailer when we need a 50-amp, but my husband’s electrical test kit is used several times a year.
Make parking the camper as a couple easier with a pair of walkie-talkies.
Cozy Winter RVing
I know a lot of RVers who love using electric blankets to keep warm in winter. Jack and I prefer electric heat pads under our Rumpl blankets. The combo keeps us warm and toasty.
For winter camping, a pair of slippers with treads is awesome. That way, should you need to step outside to let the dog out for a minute, you don’t have to transfer out of slippers and into shoes–unless you want to.
My husband and I both received Rumpl blankets as a gift from a friend, and we love them! Super warm. Our only complaint is that they are slippery, making them better for cozying up with on the couch than sleeping under at night.
Nothing is better than thermal socks on a cold day in the RV. Those floors get cold!
This spring, we stumbled upon a super clearance deal on SmartWool base layers for each of us. We have used them several times while hiking and are sold. The cheaper brands do not come close to how warm and dry SmartWool keeps you.
A heated hose is a must for anyone who camps in their camper in wintertime; without it, they risk waking up to no water and a frozen hose.
For the friend that is always cold, get them a sleeping bag with arm and leg holes.
Summer Loving Travelers
109. Outdoor Lovers Summer Gift Basket Containing…
Sunscreen, bug spray, And Citronella Candles.
Boondockers camp without hookups; a generator is the simplest method to recharge their batteries.
These are super handy for weekend warriors who don’t need a lot of power. Anker and Jackery are two popular brands.
One solar panel with a portable power station is a great start to providing the boondocker in your life with a bit more comfort when they go RVing.
I purchased a rechargeable shower head before a two-week boondocking trip and was very happy at how it worked as an outdoor shower.
We completed the outdoor shower with a collapsable bucket. We store the shower head inside it when not using it. It takes up very little space, making it perfect for van lifers or small truck campers.
Solar lanterns are handy for nighttime bathroom trips or use around the campfire.
Give your camper friends the gift of more unique places to spend the night with a Harvest Host Membership. It will allow them to stay at over 5,000 wineries, breweries, museums, and more. Plus, when you add Boondockers Welcome, they get access to an additional 3,500 locations.
The best boondocking spots are usually not found off paved roads. A pair of sand tracks could get your friend out of a muddy situation.
Protect their RV from getting stolen while they are out exploring with the gift of a hitch lock.
If they have a shower in their camper, a shower head they can quickly turn on and off is great for helping them conserve water.
A battery-operated jump starter is handy when you are miles from help and your vehicle won’t start.
The additional water this folding water cube will hold will allow your friends to stay at one boondocking site longer.
You can get this for various States, which is a good backup when GPS won’t work.
Books For Roadtrippers
State And National Park Fanatics
Most of the people who love our public lands love to hike. So, I have included a few essential hiking items below. For more ideas, read my post The Ultimate Gift Guide For National Park Lovers.
138. A National Park Pass
139. A Pass To The State Parks
Unplugged Entertainment Ideas
To complete this gift, include a book with 75 card game rules.
I think the best way to play UNO is with two decks. The game lasts a lot longer that way.
It’s a classic in a smaller case.
This game is super addictive. I recommend getting the set with the book full of different ways to play it.
Another card game that is perfect for playing inside or outside at the picnic table.
If you like Scrabble, you will like the card game Quiddler.
Plugged-In Entertainment Ideas
Those who love the RV life usually love a bit of camper bling around their home and RV. All these product links below are camper-themed.
Keeping Things Neat And Tidy
We keep a Eureka cordless vacuum in our travel trailer. It makes cleaning up sand and dirt a breeze.
Although not a fun gift idea, packing cubes are great for storing all sorts of items.
Turkish towels dry faster and take up less precious bathroom space.
A hanging shower caddy is good for those who prefer to use the campground showers.
Trust me, a folding step stool is super handy.
For full-timers, a folding wagon is a must. It is good for hauling laundry to the laundromat or packages from the front desk to your camper.
A silicone scrubber is easier to keep clean and dries faster than a dishcloth or sponge.
Office On Wheels
Let them decide whether to work inside or outside the RV with a portable power bank.
Watching wildlife from a safe distance is so much more exciting with a pair of binoculars.
You don’t have to hold these hummingbird feeders, but their compact size makes them RV-friendly.
It’s the perfect gift for those who like to geek out on the weather.
Journalers And Goal Setters
Hopefully, this list gives you a few ideas for what to purchase for the RVers in your life!
