Travel Trailer Accessories Everyone Should Consider


RV accessories

Every RV camping trip teaches you something new about what travel trailer accessories you'll need and won't need, so it's impossible to be completely prepared. That’s why we’ve prepared this resource guide for RV camping to make things easier for you.

First-time campers may experience a sense of fulfillment when they set out on their first trip. But once you get to the camping ground, you might realize you should have brought a few things to make your journey go more smoothly.

As a newbie to RV camping, this list of important travel trailer accessories should help you get started in the right direction.

What Essentials Should a Trailer Traveler Have?

Depending on the type of recreational vehicle, specific equipment may be required. There are, however, a slew of necessities that are common to all RVs. Freshwater hoses and tank treatment are among the most common examples of these items.

Accessories for a Travel Trailer You Must Have

1. RV Sewer Hose

If you're going to have to remove wastewater tanks and dispose of them, make sure you have the right tools for the job. You MUST have an RV sewer hose that is of high quality and fits snugly.

A few things to keep in mind when purchasing a sewer hose.To begin, think about the hose's overall length. A popular choice among our returning customers is the Camco 39741 RhinoFLEX RV Sewer Hose Kit - 20'.

As long as your trailer's bumper is wide enough, you should be fine. Keeping this hose elsewhere is a bad idea.

2. RV Porch Motion Sensor Light

RV trips necessitate adequate lighting on the outside of the vehicle. In addition to serving as a safety feature, it enables you to make use of your outdoor space during the evening hours.

Preventing slips and falls is easier with the proper lighting provided by a well-designed porch light. A sense of security is provided by motion sensor lights at night because they illuminate whenever somebody gets close to your travel trailer.

We have the Star Light 016-SL2000 Smart Light Round Motion Porch Light, which emits bright, clear light. This model has a 60-second timeout following the most recent motion detection. Furthermore, the light is also turned off by a daylight sensor during the day, so you don’t have to worry about unnecessary usage.

Avoid the mistake of not providing enough lighting for your RV's porch and exterior. With motion sensor lights, you have an easy and cost effective solution.

3. Fresh Water Hose

When it comes to purchasing a fresh water hose, water quality is the most important factor to keep in mind. This is one item that is pretty much a necessity for RV owners but if you are a first time buyer it might not be something you would have thought of off the top of your head.

We carry an Apex NeverKink RV Fresh Water Hose that complies with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. It also has anti-kink technology, which makes any loops inevitably straighten and stops your hose from kinking, tugging, or tangling.

4. Water Pressure Regulator

Before connecting your RV's or camper's water line to any water faucet, you must first install an RV pressure regulator in order to ensure proper water pressure. If you don't use a regulator, you run the risk of damaging your RV's water system, which could cost you tens of thousands of dollars, by overpressurizing it.

Protect your RV from overly high water pressure by installing one of these water pressure regulators or gauges. You can avoid costly repairs to your RV plumbing and hoses by using the Camco RV Brass Water Pressure Regulator with Gauge, for instance.

Additionally, it is factory-pre-set at 40 to 50 PSI. The water from the hose carrying non-fresh water cannot flow backwards due to the vacuum breaker. A natural vacuum can suck water from fresh water into recycled water, which is not what you want.

5. RV Outdoor Mat

You should consider purchasing a large outdoor RV mat if you don't already have one, if you want to make the most of the outdoor spaces around your RV.

One of the main reasons to pick up one of these mats is simply that you never know what kind of terrain you will be dealing with right outside of your RV. You might be lucky enough to park outside a nice patch of grass, but you will most likely be dealing with various dirt lots, which can make setting up chairs and other items a hassle.

When it comes to preventing sand and dirt from getting into your RV, these mats are an absolute must have. You can set up your grill station on it or use it as a surface for exercising without having to remove your shoes.

It is possible to use these RV reversible outdoor mats both indoors and outdoors, which makes them ideal for any situation. In just a few seconds, they can transform any look into something completely new and different.

The Camco Outdoor Mat that we have is a chevron-patterned outdoor mat that is lightweight, mold and mildew resistant, reversible, and easy to clean. This is ideal for placing near your RV, campsite, patio, and more! It folds up quickly and takes up very little space when it's not in use.

6. RV Windshield Cover with Mirror Cut-Outs

Aside from providing much-needed privacy, RV Windshield Covers are an excellent means of guarding your vehicle against weather-related damage.

RV accessories

When it comes to RVs, one of the weather-related issues that can be the most damaging is extreme heat. When your recreational vehicle is subjected to direct sunlight, and the high temperatures that it generates, the components made of plastic, such as furniture items, appliance handles, and ventilation systems can be negatively affected.

This may present a challenge for you regardless of whether or not you are currently utilizing the RV.

RV front window sun shades shield your camper from harmful UV rays while also reducing the temperature inside. It's possible to keep your motorhome's inside a little cooler by deflecting the sun's heat.

It's a dream come true if you’ve ever experienced the inside of an RV that’s been sitting in the sun all afternoon.

You'll be able to keep the sun out of your Chevy Class C RV for instance, thanks to the ADCO 2409 windshield cover. Installation is a breeze thanks to the straps that are used for the top fix and the magnetic fastenings that are used for the bottom fix.

We recommend taking a look through our entire selection to find a cover that fits your specific RV so you can beat the heat while enjoying your RV.
