Gear We Love

Charcoal Grill

Consider searching this out at your destination. A grill makes for a full camping experience!

Smore Sticks

These are a must have for campfire nights! You can roast hot dogs and marshmallows all night long on these!

Walkie Talkies

These are great for exploring. Give one to your kids (make sure you test it first). Then off they go!

Fairy Lights

Bring some of these solar or battery-powered lights and hang them around your campsite…instant style for the environment!

Glow Sticks

If you can find the set with connectors and headbands, you can make all sorts of wearable glow items – it will be easier to find each other at night!

Wint-O-Green Lifesavers

These are a must. Get a fresh pack, wait for night time around the campfire. Pop one in your mouth and crunch/grind it with your mouth open. You are in for a surprise! Trust us 🙂

Magnetic Hooks

Put them on the back bumper – and hang bathing suits to dry. Just remember to bring them in before you drive away!

Disposable Camera

Consider for younger children, especially if they don’t have a phone yet.

Wet Wipes

Very handy.

Hanging Toiletry Bag

Save space in the RV bathroom.

Grill Gloves

To move the hot grill off the table when you are done grilling.

Dump Gloves

Keep hands clean during this task!

AC Inverter

You can use this to charge your phone or run low-power devices on household (AC) current without running the generator or plugging into shore power. (More on all of that in your Adventure Kit!)

Make sure your meat is cooked through on the grill!
