Holiday shopping can be downright tricky, especially if the person you’re shopping for seems to have it all. But, if you’re stuck on what to get your friend or family member who happens to be the proud owner of an RV, we’ve got just the thing for you. RV owners take pride in the appearance and performance of their RV because, in essence, it is like a home away from home when out on the road. This holiday season, give the gift of a unique part or accessory to brighten up the interior or exterior of the motorhome. RV accessories and parts range anywhere from performance-based to just plain pretty. Whether you’re interested in furniture, leisure accessories, cookware, or even plumbing accessories, South Thompson RV has you covered this holiday season. Check out our top 5 holiday picks that make the perfect gift for the RVer in your life.

Fold-Up Table and Chairs

Perfect for indoor or outdoor use (in the warmer months of course), fold-up tables and chairs are a great addition to any RV. Whether you’ve got guests coming to visit and need the extra seats, or simply like the convenience of storing your furniture when not in use, fold-ups make a great addition to the kitchen or living room. Fold-up sets also make great gifts for any RV owners who are thinking of replacing their built-in dinettes. It creates more floor space and allows for more renovations in the future. From early morning breakfasts to late-night card games, a fold-up table and chair set is something they can always use.

Patio Mats

They might sound simple enough, but many people forget to purchase patio mats when buying their RVs. The primary function of any outdoor mat is to keep dirt, mud, and debris from entering the RV. Patio mats come in a wide range of colours and materials but the best option is to go with something rubber to keep water from soaking into the mat, or something strong and sturdy with bristles to brush your boots off on.


No camping trip in an RV is complete without a BBQ. Big or small, a BBQ is a must for any camper to cook up a mean steak, burgers or hot dogs. An RV BBQ, in comparison to a regular BBQ, is the perfect gift due to its compact design principles. They are small enough to store indoors once you pack up the RV for the winter season, or on the contrary, can be used all year round and easily covered outdoors. There are many options available including portable grills, fold-up grills, electric, gas, propane, and charcoal. Depending on your RV lover’s favourite cooking style, there’s sure to be an RV BBQ that suits their lifestyle.

Flexible or Mock Crystal Wine Glass Sets

Everybody needs a beautiful set of wine glasses for their home, and the same goes for your RV. However, because everyone usually tends to drink outdoors, or is constantly moving around, you wouldn’t want an expensive set of crystal wine glasses to break or go missing. Flexible rubber stemless wine glasses are a great way to let guests enjoy themselves. And if they wander off with one of the glasses, it won’t be the end of the world. Mock crystal wine glasses in rubber or plastic are strong, durable and perfect for the great outdoors. They are dishwasher safe and, let’s face it: look way better than drinking from an old mug or solo cup.

Marshmallow Roasters

Remember running around the campsite looking for the perfect stick to use for roasting marshmallows? With only an hour left of daylight, you’d scramble off into the bushes, find the best stick, shove a marshmallow on, and start roasting--only to watch in horror as ants burst out of the wood. Marshmallow roasting skewer sets are the perfect gift and can be enjoyed all year round. Most come in metal designs with built-in extenders so you don’t have to worry about small children getting too close. They are easy to clean and are good for years and camping trips to come.
