Finding the perfect gift for someone in a small space can be challenging, which is why it’s important to pick a present for an RVer with care. You wouldn’t want your well-earned money to go to something an RVer won’t need.
We’ve curated the top gifts for an RVer that don’t take up too much space.
1) Darn Tough Socks ($20-$30)
An RVer will never say no to a comfortable pair of good socks. Darn Tough socks, which are made in Vermont, are anti-microbial and anti-odor. The soft merino wool is perfect for lounging around in the RV with a good book, or taking out on the trail for a hike. These are our absolute favorite socks and I’ll recommend them to the moon and back.
2) Tire Pressure Monitoring System ($50-$400)
Anyone knows a tire blow-out is dangerous business for an RVer, especially when trekking on mountain roads. This EEZTire pressure monitoring system gets very good reviews on Amazon and is specially built for motorhomes. EEZTire accurately monitors tire pressure and temperature for up to 26 tires and tire pressures up to 210 psi. Not only does this help prevent a blowout, but helps keep your rig’s fuel economy up to par. The price range on a tire pressuring monitoring system is so large due to the number and types of systems on the market.
3) Camping Dutch Oven ($65-$110)
Nothing is better than getting outside your RV to cook dinner, and this dutch oven does just the trick. This Lodge portable “camp stove” does everything – the lid holds hot coals and inverts to use as a griddle. The stocky pot also has legs so you can set it right over hot coals in the fire to roast meats, veggies, stews, or even to make a dessert. Cast iron is naturally non-stick and even gets some good iron into your food. This dutch oven even comes with the Camp Dutch Oven Cooking 101 book.
4) Magma Nesting Cookware ($125-$215)
Limited space in an RV means the RVer is always looking for organizational hacks! These Magma Nesting Cookware sets are super popular among the motorhome community. These pots are made out of marine grade stainless steel and store in less than 1/2 cubic foot of cabinet space. They’re non-toxic and non-stick, and oven safe up to 500 degrees. Perfect all around pots!
5) Outdoor Wine Glass Holder ($18-$20)
Everyone who drinks wine outdoors knows how big of a pain it is to keep that wine glass upright. These wine glass holders by Bella D’Vine include wine stakes for a picnic, a suction base for boats, baths and hot tubs and straps for lawn chairs. This is a great gift for someone who likes to sip wine out of a real glass. This hilarious accessory makes the perfect gift for a wine-loving RVer.
6) Yeti Koozie ($25-$30)
While we’re on the subject of alcohol, we should tell you about this awesome Yeti Koozie that will keep beers, sparkling water, or soft drinks cold for so long you’ll think you had them on ice. I bought this Yeti Koozie for my boyfriend last Christmas, and I love it so much, I use it more than him! It fits a 12oz can or a bottle of whatever you want to drink, and keeps it very cold. This is a great gift someone wouldn’t think to buy for themselves.
7) Portable Hammock for Outdoor Relaxation ($60-$100)
It’s no fun trying to find trees to string up a hammock, especially when you’re RVing and boondocking. Any RVer would love this double standalone hammock with a space-saving stainless steel stand. The hammock folds down into the size of a collapsible camping chair, and easily fits two people for some R&R. One RVer wrote it’s the best gift they’ve ever gotten.
8) Inflatable Kayak ($80-$600)
An inflatable kayak is a great gift for an RVer because it folds down to such a small size when not in use. This 2-person inflatable kayak gets great reviews, and is meant for lakes and slow-moving rivers. This kayak includes adjustable inflatable seats with backrests, and a cockpit designed for comfort and space. Perfect for anyone who loves water.
9) Laundry Pod ($60-$80)
RVers love exploring national parks and boondocking on public lands, which often means they’ll be hard-pressed to find a laundromat. The Laundry Pod is an easy-to-use system for washing, spinning and draining, and cleans clothes in less than 10 minutes. All you need is 6 liters of water and 1.5 teaspoons of detergent to make clothes look like new again. Perfect for RVing and camping.
10) Kindle ($100-$250)
Living in an RV means you don’t have a lot of space, and no space to lug around a bunch of books. I’m addicted to my Kindle Paperwhite for ease of use and portability, plus, I’ll never be without a book! A Kindle can be connected to a hotspot signal to download a new book on the go. Plus, the Kindle Paperwhite, which I own, is backlit and can be read in a motorhome without disturbing a sleeping partner. I go everywhere with my Kindle, and hope I never have to go without! Also, the new Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof – amazing!
11) National Parks Annual Pass ($80)
The America the Beautiful Parks Pass is something Tom and I buy every single year. It saves so much money given that the typical entry into a national park is $30! This would make a great gift for any RVer on your list.
I know I’d be thankful for it!
12) Motorhome Stone Coasters ($15-$20)
One look at this cute little coasters make me want to pick up and go RVing. I just love the artwork on these stone coasters, which are cork-backed to protect surfaces. These coasters can be used for both cold and hot drinks and measure 4 by 4 inches. A fun little gift for the RVer.
13) Fleece Throw Blanket ($20-$30)
Any motorhome enthusiast knows a good fleece blanket when they see one. What better way to spend a rainy afternoon inside the RV reading a book, wrapped in a comfy blanket. These throws are great for both indoor and outdoor use – RVers love to sit outside and look at the stars with a comfortable blanket on their lap.
14) Portable Gas Grill ($70-$200)
A portable gas grill is great when an RVer wants to cook outside rather than inside their motorhome. This portable gas grill can be set up anywhere, and is handy for boondocking, when it might be hard to cook over a fire. This grill has a 145-square inch grilling area, foldaway legs and a carrying handle, making it easy to store and move around. It can cook 8 burgers, 8 steaks or 6-8 chicken breasts. You might even want to consider adding on a grill tools set.
