Better For Your Mugs
We just absolutely LOVE these! You’ve probably seen us share them on our Instagram and Facebook. While we think ceramic mugs are cute, these double -wall stainless steel mugs rock our socks off! They keep our beverages hot or cold longer. They are unbreakable, lightweight and easy to store! Their handle is comfortable. While you’re at it, buy several. Even if you don’t live in an RV, these are game changers on how you enjoy your morning coffee or evening tea (or bourbon!).
Pssssst! We love them so much that we recently blogged The Absolute Last Coffee Mug You’ll Ever Buy!

Graduated sized containers nest to take up less room in your cupboard, and its square shape takes up less room in your refrigerator.

Motor Carriers Atlas
Also known as a trucker atlas, this is the one paper-printed book that every big rig RV owner needs. While yes, there are mapping apps and GPS’, having an updated motor carriers’ atlas is a great fall-back in case cell or internet signals are hit or miss. it gives important information such as low clearances, weight restricted roads, etc. that every big rig RV owner needs. With its laminated pages and spiral binding, the Deluxe Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas can stand up to all of the wear and tear from the road. Save time and money with this easy to use atlas.

OXO Good Grips Airtight Food Storage POP Containers
So, I mentioned the Rubbermaid food storage containers above for your leftover but how about some great organizing containers that will keep your condiments, flour, sugar, coffee, tea bags and other staples fresher longer? These airtight, space-saving storage containers keep dry foods fresh and pantry organized. Push the button for an airtight seal, push again to release. Button pops up to double as a built-in handle. Shaped for maximum space efficiency; these stackable, modular canisters can be completely customized to fit any space.
We’ve highly recommended these Eva Dry Dehumidifiers almost as long as we’ve owned our fifth wheel. We think every RV or camper owner (even boats!) should have at least one. This powerful electric mid-size dehumidifier is great for areas up to 2200 cubic feet. There’s also a smaller dehumidifier that we use in the bedroom and bathroom/shower that is totally efficient.
We’ve blogged about them in our Dehumidifiers for RVs and Campers Product Review.
2TB PC External Hard Drive
This portable external hard drive is USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 compatibility. It allows fast data transfer and will improve PC performance. It has a 2 terabyte High Capacity which provides a great storage place for all of your videos and photographs! High quality and dependable! We recommend getting a couple of these; one for your safe deposit box and one for your immediate storage.
You might also want to get a protective hard drive case to store and transport it as well.
Weather Monitoring Station
This is something even we want this year! Digital Weather Station with Wind Speed, Temperature and Humidity. It’s High-precision 3-in-1 wireless weather sensor accurately measures the temperature, humidity and wind speed. Daily and all-time high and low records. Current wind speed, average wind speed and peak wind speed readings are tracked and updated every 18 seconds.

Holiday Gifts $100 – $200
RV Jack Pads
We talked about these before and we absolutely love, love, LOVE our RV SnapPads! These are protective ‘shoes’ for your RV’s jack pads. They protect the surface below them as well as helps stabilize our coach on all parking surfaces. We blogged about them in our product review even! This company makes them practically for every RV out there; from travel trailer, fifth wheel and motorhome.
Cordless Tool Set
From the garage to the workshop, from the DIYer to the professional contractor, this super kit has the tools you’ll need for a hard day’s work and the batteries to fuel them. 4 power tools are included here: power drill, a circular saw, reciprocating saw, and work light. Also included are two compact lithium ion batteries to power these tools as you go about your day. We recommend every full-time RV owner have these to complete a multitude of tasks on the road.
You’ll want to get a larger portable compressor kit that can inflate up to a 35 inch tire from 0 to 30 PSI in less than 5 minutes. By simply attaching its supplied heavy duty battery clamp power leads to the battery, it attaches the lever style air chuck to a tire valve stem and turns the unit on. Air pressure can be monitored using the 5-in-1 inline inflator/deflator hose and gauge included. Always turn off the unit to take an accurate pressure reading since air flow into the tire will show an inaccurate pressure reading while the compressor is running. We recommend this compressor that we’ve used on RV and truck tires.
Magma Nesting Cookware Set
This is still a favorite of mine for RVers and Boaters alike! Our stainless steel nesting cookware set is going on five years old. All the pans have triple-clad bottoms; stainless steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. They are milled perfectly flat for even heat distribution on gas, electric, or ceramic cooktops. When you’re done cooking, the pans stack into a single nesting footprint. They are oven-safe too.
Read about them in our detailed Magma Nesting Cookware Product Review.
RV Flag Pole Kit
Every RVer, big or small, motorhome or towable, needs to fly Old Glory, favorite team, or party flag! We love our flag pole setup we have that attaches to our ladder when we’re parked. Its easy to install and pretty sturdy. Amazingly, its telescoping and stores to about four feet in length. Oh, and to keep your flag lit at night, consider adding a solar powered flagpole light. Really, this IS a RV must-have to identify your RV from a couple hundred yards away.
Holiday Gifts Over $200

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
This is the best Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) on the market, and the only one that includes a color monitor. The flow thru sensor is very popular for those that want the convenience to air up tires without taking the sensor off the valve stem. (Recommended to use with metal valve stems; use the TST cap sensors for rubber valve stems.)
