Our Favorite RV and Travel Gear
My friends the Wynns may have put it best on their own page: “We’re not encouraging consumerism, but any grand adventure requires some gear.”
I strive to mostly just collect great experiences in my travels, but narrowed down some very useful tangible things that can make life on the move much more enjoyable!
Here you’ll find some recommendations of products or services that I regularly use (or have used in the past) and love. Just as I’ve learned countless useful tips from other bloggers’ recommendations, I hope someone else may benefit from this list!

I have three of these bags for hoses and cables, and they’re durable and a great size for storing coiled items in storage areas. The pocket on the outside is also handy for power adapters, hose fittings, etc.
I have one of these USB-rechargeable, dimmable touch lights on the wall in my van bathroom so I don’t have to turn on the super-bright overhead light at night – it comes in handy for many situations where you need a little bit of light. I need to buy a couple for my house, too!
I have three Luci lights in my van, and they are SO handy – lightweight, they pack flat, are totally solar powered, change colors, and waterproof. Just make sure to tie them down in the wind!
Ford Transit van accessories
This stubby radio antenna may be the cutest lil’ antenna ever – but it also means no more distracting antenna whipping around in the wind on my hood. THANK THE ANTENNA GODS!
I love car window rain and wind deflectors – I like to crack the front windows for my dogs when I leave them, without the risk of rain getting in, and also reduce wind noise in the cab while driving with the windows down. Gotta be able to hear my jams while rolling down the road!
Husky Liners floor liners are spill-proof, pet-proof, easy to clean, and a great fit. Available for many vehicles.
Portable dog water bowl + bottle – so handy! Usually I remember one or the other on an adventure with the doggos: a bottle of water or a bowl. This eliminates having two separate things to keep track of, and stores compactly in the RV fridge or a car cupholder.
Dog tag silencers – I can finally sleep through the dogs scratching or shaking in the middle of the night! These may be the best invention ever.
