With Summer 2024 finally upon us, RVers everywhere are getting ready to embark on a slew of adventures and road trips to their favourite campgrounds across BC and Canada.

From adventure essentials and helpful gadgets to seasonal RV decor, here are some of the must-have items you need to accessorize your RV this summer! 

Tech & Gadgets


These gadgets can significantly enhance your camping experience by providing convenience, safety, and entertainment.

  • Portable Solar Chargers: Keep all your personal devices charged with solar power. These are great for off-grid camping where traditional power sources aren't available.
  • Portable Wi-Fi Hotspots: Provides internet access in areas with weak or no cellular coverage. They are super useful for emergencies or remote working digital nomads.
  • Water Purification Gadgets: Portable water filters or UV purifiers like these ensure safe drinking water when you run out of your bottles. Plus, they're lightweight and essential for remote camping.
  • Portable Bluetooth Speakers: Enjoy your favourite tunes around the campsite. Bonus points for waterproof and durable options.
  • Campfire Fans: The battery-operated fans to help start and maintain campfires. Not onlt do they help speed up the process, but they also reduce campfire smoke.
