Every year Susan and I have friends and family that want to buy us gifts for Christmas, birthdays, mother’s day, father’s day, etc and since we are RVers they always have questions about what they should buy for us. If only they had our list of 55 Awesome Gifts for RV Owners they would know what to get us!
But they don’t know what we have in our RV or what we need for camping so they are stumped. And, truth be told, I’m glad they ask. I don’t want a coffee mug that says World’s Best Dad” of other fluffy gifts. We decided to make a list of the very best gifts for RV owners but the list is also good for campers and hikers too!
Our list of 55 Awesome Gifts for RV Owners isn’t in any particular order but the list includes:
- Gift ideas for RV owners

- Practical gifts for RV owners
- Gifts for full-time RVers
- Christmas gifts for RV owners
- Gifts for hikers and campers
- Camping gifts for Dad
- Camping gifts for couples
- Gifts for camping lovers
- Gifts for campers who have everything
Below are the things we have either received as gifts – or wish we did – through the years that we’re sure any RVer or camping enthusiasts in your life would use and appreciate too. So, here is our list of 55 Awesome Gifts for RV Owners to help you find the perfect gift.
While most campgrounds come equipped with picnic tables, they’re not always in the most convenient spots or comfortable. Having this foldable camping table will allow you to dine, cook or play games anywhere with a flat surface.
Its also great for tailgating or using at the beach or anywhere there is no picnic table. We love our camping table so much – we have two! We think it’s one of the coolest gifts for RV campers.
I’ll be honest, I give Amazon E-Gift Cards more than any other gift to all of nieces, nephews, friends and even my own kids. I haven’t tried giving one to Susan yet but I doubt that would go over very well!
Anyway, Amazon has everything an RVer could ever want. Plus it is so convenient to send an E-Gift Card! Just buy it online and send it to your friend or relative!
There are literally thousands of RV, Camping, Fishing, Hiking, Biking Kayaking or whatever on their site! You just can’t go wrong giving someone an Amazon E-Gift card because they will be able to find something they like.
My daughters gave us a Harvests Hosts Membership for Christmas and we love it! We can stay at over 700 Wineries, Breweries, and Farms for FREE! It only costs $79 ( and if you use our link you will receive a 15% discount! ) and your RVer will love it! The locations are great and they will save a ton of money. You can help them save hundreds of dollars on campground fees and introduce them to new parts of the country and new experiences!
We love our zero gravity camping chairs. Everyone has those small folding camping chairs but we also like our zero gravity chairs. They are so comfortable I can actually fall asleep while chillin in mine – until our grandson Rocco wakes me up anyway. We really like them because they also have a tray on the side that can hold a drink and your cell phone. These are an awesome gift idea for RV owners.
These Inflatable Lounge Chairs look like you might sink in and never get back out! But, they are super comfortable and since they inflate and deflate they are easy to store. I would recommend them for more agile RVers. This is a great camping gift for her – or him!
Another staple of comfort is swinging from a tree, swaying in the breeze in a double hammock. All you need is two trees, and you have the perfect spot to read a book or take a nap. We think this is a perfect camping gift idea for couples.
A fantastic down filled blanket to keep you warm and toasty and it’s easily packable. This blanket is the perfect “outdoor” blanket that you don’t have to worry about getting dirty because it is machine washable. Just pack it up and store it away until the next time you want to use it! If you are looking for a good gift for an RV owner they will love this camping blanket!
This easily foldable sand mat is sturdy and meant to be staked in the ground but it allows dirt and sand to filter through and stay outside of your RV or tent. This is the ultimate sand-free ground pad or beach blanket and is the perfect gift for tent campers, campervan owners and rv owners too!
We buy a National Park pass every year and it saves us hundreds of dollars. The pass only costs $80 and it gets us into every National Park in the US for free, Not only do we get into National Parks for free but in some locations, we receive half off campsites too!
If your friend or loved one is looking to travel the country, buying them an annual National Parks pass will get them into every National Park in the country and save them a bunch of money too. Not only is it the best way to see all of our beautiful National Parks, but the $80 fee goes towards the National Parks Foundation which funds National Park upkeep across the nation. It’s an awesome gift idea for all camping enthusiasts.
We use our Welcome to Camp Quitcherbitchin Sign against each other whenever possible. Just kidding! A friend of ours gave it to us as a gift and we think it’s hilarious and reminds us to chill out and relax! The nice thing is it just hangs on a cabinet knob so we can stow it away safely when on the road and easily hang it up when we get to our campsite. If you are looking for a camping gift for her it definitely adds to the ambiance in the RV.
These Happy Camper unbreakable wine glasses can travel anywhere and still provide a perfect vessel for your favorite vino around the campfire. They are stylish and made in the USA! They are the perfect gift for any RV owner or camping couples because let’s face it – you can’t drink wine from a red solo cup!
Most RVs may be equipped with a fridge, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a travel cooler that’s easy to store but doesn’t compromise on effectiveness. This soft-sided cooler from REI is very high quality, holds up to 12 cans and 8 lbs of ice, keeps drinks cold for up to 32 hours and folds flat for easy storage. And since storage space matters in an RV, any RV owner would love this gift!
Another way to keep cold drinks cold is to purchase one of the best water bottles on the market. This vacuum-sealed water bottle will keep your cold beverages cold for up to 24 hours! The HydroFlask makes a great gift for campers and hikers alike!
This is a really cool gift for RV owners. Insta Fire was on Shark Tank and it’s now a Mark Cuban Company so you know it’s a good product. And it is! It can get a fire started in 30 mph winds or with wet wood! It burns at 1000 degrees! And the pack also includes 6 charcoal starters to get the grill started too. What a practical gift for any RVer or camper.
I got Magical Flames packs for my birthday and absolutely love them. Now I buy them all the time. I tried to be a cheapskate and buy the chemicals from Home Depot and that didn’t work so well. So, I get them in my Christmas stocking and I buy them throughout the year. I know I’m a dork but I love a colorful fire. This is a great camping gift for kids too because they will love the colorful flames. They last a long time too!
No campfire is complete without a roasted marshmallow or two, and these extendable telescoping marshmallow sticks are perfect for storing away in a drawer in the RV and can keep everyone safe while roasting. A must-have item in my book. And a very thoughtful gift for camping families too.
I love a grilled cheese or grilled peppers and sausage in a cast iron pie iron over an open fire! This is a great gift for any RVer. I bet they don’t have one either. If your friend or loved ones are tired of the same old marshmallows for dessert, they will enjoy a campfire pie iron to try out their fire baking skills.
The gift set includes a Rome Pie Iron, Pie Iron Recipe Books, and a Pie Iron Canvas Cover! We love this great gift set for any camper!
We absolutely love our Bose SoundLink Micro Portable Outdoor Speaker. It has incredible sound quality! It has built-in blue tooth technology so it connects wirelessly to our iPhones and we can listen to our favorite music and podcasts whenever and wherever we want!
It is easy to use and waterproof and we think a rugged speaker like this one is the perfect gift for any camper or hiker who likes to listen to their music no matter if they’re inside or outside.
This 3 in 1 Combo Set of Games is the perfect gift for RV owners and the tailgate games fan. It includes three different games – Bean Bag Toss, Washer Toss, and Chuck-A-Ball. All are able to be carried and stowed in a small travel case. It’s a great gift idea for camper owners!
The National Parks Trivia Game is an excellent camping gift for kids because they can learn all about our National Parks and test their park knowledge. It’s the perfect gift for camping families because you never know when they might be caught in a storm and need to entertain themselves in the RV!
One of the best gifts for RV owners is something that will make their RV feel like home, and this customizable welcome mat will do just that! It’s also a great retirement gift for RV owners! Not only does it look cute, but it’s also functional!
A great gift to liven up the RV are these adorable Happy Camper kitchen towels! Just because you’re camping doesn’t mean you can’t have cute kitchen accessories. These hand towels are the perfect gift for any RV owner.
23. Camper Planter
The perfect gift for someone who not only loves to go camping but also loves plants and decorating. It’s small enough to fit on a small RV counter and cute enough to brag about to everyone in the campground. This is the perfect gift for any RV Owner because the Camper includes artificial succulents so if it tips over – no problemo! And it looks so life-like it’s amazing!
24. US Sticker Map
Another gift for those who like to brag about their travels, this US Sticker Map map is an excellent reminder of trips past! A picture is worth a thousand words and the beautifully illustrated stickers show the beauties of each state. This is a fantastic gift for full-time RV owners so they can add a sticker for every state they visit.
25. Camping Journal
We have been RVing in a lot of really cool places and after we stay somewhere Susan loves to write about each place we stay in our RV Journal while we are on the road to our next destination. We can record the route we took, mileage, people we met along the way, memorable sights and events.
It’s fun for us to relive our journies as Susan writes about them. Plus it’s a perfect gift for your favorite RV owner or camper or even to keep for yourself. It’s easy to fill in a journal that will allow any RV owner to remember all of their adventures!
26. Multi-Compartment Backpack
When the RV is parked, and it’s time to adventure, this is the perfect backpack to carry the essentials for a day hike, and it’s small enough to pack away in a drawer inside the rig.
I was on a camping trip and forgot my backpack. So I stopped and Walmart and thought I could at least get a cheapo backpack to hold me over. Well, guess what – this backpack ended up becoming my full-time backpack!
It is lightweight, and hasn’t fallen apart after years of travel and hiking everywhere from Canada to Costa Rica! What a great find! I highly recommend this backpack as a gift for any hiker or camper!
After a long day of adventuring, being cramped up in an RV shower is not always ideal. This popup shower or bathroom is an excellent camping gift for a family who might have a few family members who need to shower and don’t all want to wait for the tiny RV shower. It’s even perfect for use on the beach or while camping!
One of the most underrated items in an RV is a good towel and this one can be used for yoga, showering, swimming or camping and with its antimicrobial fabric, it won’t stink up the RV. This is a great camping gift for him, for her or for couples.
Most RVers don’t have a washer and dryer on board their RV. So the Scrubba Laundry Wash Bag is the perfect gift for any RV owner on an extended trip!
While giving someone a chore for a gift may seem a bit silly, this small laundry bag can save a lot of headaches. If there is no laundromat nearby and there are some clothes that could use some lovin’ this Scrubba laundry bag is the perfect solution.
We use our folding step stool all the time – especially Susan since she’s only 5’1″ tall! There’s always going to be times where that pan, bowl or cookie box is just out of reach, and this folding step stool is great for that little extra step. It’s sturdy enough for both adults and kids and folds down for easy storage. It’s a very practical gift for RV owners.
31. RV Step Rug
Another practical, yet fantastic gift idea that will not only help the RV feel more like home but will also help keep it clean! RV Step Rugs mean less cleaning inside the RV! And it makes the steps much safer too! This is a great gift for any RV owner! Most RVs have three steps so be sure to buy the correct amount for your RV owner.
32. Air Purifier
RVs aren’t that big, and after a long day of adventuring, an RV that is filled with people who smell less than fresh can ruin the evening. Grabbing a couple of these air purifiers and throwing them around the RV can help keep it fresh smelling for many trips to come. This is a great gift idea for any RV owner!
No gift can show how much you think about your friend or loved one than a gift that keeps their valuables safe like the Hitchsafe Key Vault. There are plenty of activities where keys and cash are cumbersome to carry around, yet leaving the RV unlocked and unattended is not an option either. This Hitch Vault is a great option to keep the RV and other small valuables safe without the worry!
34. RV Trip Wizard
RV Trip Wizard is an awesome gift for any RV owner. This trip planning tool uses the height and weight of the RV to plan safe routes for any vacation destination. It also shows campgrounds, gas stations, rest areas, grocery stores, Walmarts and many other points of interest so you can plan an Epic RV vacation in great detail.
We love RV Trip Wizard and use it just about every time we plan a trip because it’s easy to use and we have every piece of information we need in one place at one time to plan our route, campgrounds, and stops along the way and it even tracks our expenses too!
Susan got me a Heavy Duty Log Grabber and Fire Poker as a Christmas gift one year and I love this thing! I used to use any stick I found to tend the campfire and it would either break or catch fire!
But my Heavy Duty Log Grabber and Fire Poker is awesome because I can pick up entire logs while they are burning and rearrange the fire as needed! This is a great camping gift for Dad or whoever tends the fire.
This is a great gift for any RV owner. Most RV Owners don’t even keep an emergency roadside kit onboard their RV only to regret it when they actually need it one day.
The emergency roadside kit we keep onboard has jumper cables, a tow rope, a refective road triangle, a multi-tool and much much more! What a great gift for the RV Owner in your life!
We got our Happy Camper coasters as a camping birthday gift from a friend and we use ours every day! They are bright and cheery and add a homey feel to the RV when we are camping. You might want to buy them for yourself but they also make a perfect gift for that RVer in your life!
38. First Aid Kit
We keep a good quality first aid kit on board just in case anyone gets hurt. We found a great brand called Swiss Safe which has thousands of 5-star reviews. It’s a great compact kit that we can easily store on board in case we ever need it and it is a perfect gift for any camper who has everything.
39. RV Awning Lights
We love our RV awning lights. They light up up the area and create a warm glow that lights up the way from the campfire to the RV. They are waterproof and dimmable LED lights so you can control just how much light you need – and you can dim them so you don’t disturb any surrounding campers too. We think these awning lights are a great gift idea for any RV or camper owner.
Don’t forget to also buy a pack of awning clips too so your RVer can easily hang the lights form the awning. These are the clips we use and they work really great!
Very few RVs have an automatic ice maker in them so a great gift idea for any RV owner is a countertop ice maker! Not only can the RVer in your life use it in their RV but they can use it at home too!
We love our countertop ice maker! Our RV freezer is pretty small, like most RV freezers, and instead of a bag of ice using most of the room in the freezer we just plug in the countertop ice maker and make all the ice we need. And when we have guests over at home we just bring it in the house and use it there too!
Have you ever tried backing up an RV before? It’s not always easy! So that’s why a Wireless Backup Camera is a great gift for an RV owner. We have one in our RV and it is fantastic!
Our wireless backup camera was super easy to install and it comes with a nice big 7″ screen in HD so I can really get a good view of what’s behind me. Don’t waste your money on the cameras with the 5″ screen – they just aren’t big enough. We think this makes a great RV gift idea!
RV tires are different than car tires. Most car tires inflate to about 35 psi. But RV tires inflate to about 80 psi. In fact, most tire pressure gauges for cars don’t even measure tire pressure over 60 psi.
That’s why it’s important to get a tire pressure gauge made for RVs and trucks. And a good tire pressure gauge will have a long head because sometimes the valve stems are hard to reach.
That’s why we think the TireMinder High-Pressure Tire Gauge is the perfect gift for your RV owner. It even has a built-in flashlight so you can see what you’re doing!
RVing has become more popular than ever. The National Parks are overcrowded in peak season and that can make an RV trip a little frustrating.
When we are on the road sometimes we like to find places that no one else knows about. This way we can slow down enjoy things without all the crowds. So, we recommend the Off the Beaten Path Travel Guide as a great gift for an RV owner so they can relax and enjoy the US without all the hustle and bustle.
44. RV Tool Kit
You never know when something will break on an RV. Unfortunately, it happens all too often. I’ve had to replace water pumps, fix water heaters, repair the door into the RV, and lots of other minor repairs while we have been camping.
That’s why a good compact tool kit is vital for any RV Owner and makes a great gift too! I like the Etepon 78 Piece tool kit because it has just about everything an RV owner will need to make those unexpected repairs on the road.
The Black and Decker handheld cordless vacuum has great ratings and reviews. It is a terrific vacuum cleaner with tons of suction and a long-lasting rechargeable battery. Plus it folds up into a compact space for easy storage and recharging. What a great gift for any RV Owner!
46. Instant Pot
We love our Instant Pot cooker. It makes some great camp food like chili, stew, soup and pulled barbeque! And everything comes out so tender and delicious! Be sure to get the 6 quart Instant Pot. The other sizes are just too small. Combine the Instant Pot with an Instant Pot Camping Cookbook and you have the perfect gift for any RV owner!
The Coleman RoadTrip 285 Portable Stand-Up Propane Grill has sturdy quick-fold legs and 2 wheels for easy setup, takedown, and transport so that using your grill at home, on a camping trip, or a tailgate is easy. And if you’re looking for more cooking options, the Swaptop interchangeable cooktops let you switch the grill grates with a griddle or stove grates, which are both sold separately.
With two sliding side tables to keep utensils and sauces handy, cooking with this grill is just as convenient as traveling with it. The RoadTrip 285 Portable Stand-Up Grill can be stored upright (to fit in tight spaces) until your next cookout. It uses a 1-pound propane bottle to fire it up! What a great gift for an RV owner!
48. Stainless Steel Grill Set
The Cuisinart Deluxe Stainless Steel 20-Piece Grill Set is the perfect gift for any RV owner or camper! This set is a best seller and includes a wide spatula, grill tongs, silicone basting brush, 8 corn holders, 5 skewers, cleaning brush, replacement brush head, aluminum storage case, and even a digital temperature fork.
What do RVers do when they go camping? Many go hiking or sightseeing nut more and more are going Kayaking! A Tandem Inflatable Kayak is the perfect gift for any RV Owner who loves to sightsee on the water or go fishing! And since it’s from REI you can be sure this inflatable kayak will be high quality. And it can be easily stored on any RV or Travel Trailer!
A dutch oven and an iron skillet are essential cookware for camping over a campfire. Why? Because you can’t use a regular frying pan from home over an open fire – trust me I tried to!
The dutch oven combo cooker is the way to go if you are going to buy cast iron cookware because the lid of the dutch oven doubles as a skillet! So, you get the most for your money with this awesome combo. We recommend Lodge cast iron cookware because they make the best cast iron cookware on the market so you can be sure it will last! It’s a top gift for RV owners and campers alike.
I love having a long nozzle torch lighter with a flexible elbow for lighting campfires and my grill. The torch is windproof so the flame doesn’t blow out when we are in windy conditions like when we go beach camping. And the flexible elbow allows me to light the fire from the bottom for a better burn.
Plus this torch lighter is refillable too! Remember to pair this gift for an RV owner or camper with a three-pack of Colibri butane. This is the brand that I use because it is 99.9994% pure butane.
52. Travel Atlas
Sometimes when we are traveling we lose our cell signal. Then guess what happens…we also lose our GPS map too! So we keep a good ole fashioned travel atlas onboard the RV. We like the travel atlas because it covers every state in the country so we have a map no matter where we happen to be. This is the perfect gift for a full-time RV owner.
The first time we rented an RV we had two bikes with us and we actually carried them into the RV and bungee corded them to the dinette table leg to secure them while we traveled. We have come a long way since then!
Our ladder mount bike rack is awesome. It holds our two bikes and it is very lightweight but incredibly strong. We love to bring our bikes with us everywhere we go because, in our opinion, biking is the perfect speed to sightsee! And this bike rack is by far the best one we have found. We’ve had ours for years and it’s still as good as new! And it makes a great gift for camper and RV owners.
The NOAA Emergency Weather Radio is a fantastic emergency item every RV owner should have on hand because you never know when you will not have cell service. And if you have no cell service a radio can save the day!
But, the NOAA Weather radio is much more than just a weather radio. It can pick up AM and FM stations too so I can catch the ball game while hiking, off-roading or surf fishing! It also is a flashlight, an emergency strobe light, a power charger, and it even has a dog whistle so a search dog can find you. It doesn’t require batteries because it has a hand crank to power it up!
It’s a fantastic gift for any RV owner or camper that doubles as an essential emergency item. We love ours and use it all the time!
An RVBlogger T-Shirt is a great gift idea for any RV owner! They come in multiple colors and sizes for men and women. And we also have RVBlogger long sleeve T-Shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies available too!
