Gifts in RV WM

If you have RV-owning friends, you probably know that they love receiving fun gifts to use on their camping adventures! We set out to write this post with new RV owners in mind, but I have to be honest with you: easily half of this list is on our wish list and we have owned a camper for more than a decade!

To be honest, our biggest source for “stuff we want for our camper” inspiration comes from the campgrounds that we visit. We love taking a stroll (or golf cart drive depending on the day) around the campground and scoping out all of the “stuff” that other campers have at their campsites! From tools to decorations to games and more, we are constantly looking at other campers’ rigs and campsite setups to decide what will go on our wish list!

We wanted to share our mega list of great gift ideas for your RV owning friends! Our list is broken down into several segments to make it a little easier to navigate.
