5 Essential Tech Gadgets for Your RV
Where would we be without our technology? Here are some essential gadgets you’ll need to take your RV time to new places, and you’ll wonder how you ever got along without them.
Tip: You can get a great deal on a rental RV with Outdoorsy for your next adventure, and invest in some of the tech below with the money you save.
You’ll feel like a kid again when you open up your walkie-talkie package and start to play around with them. But rather than a mere children’s toy these can come in handy when you need to communicate quickly, especially in places where the cell reception is bad.
Bladeless Fan with Air Filter
A bladeless fan is perfect for those nights when things are a little stuffy in the RV and you want a continuous cool breeze on you. There are now models that come with a built-in air filter which is perfect for the enclosed space of the RV for times when you can’t open the windows but want to keep the indoor air nice and clean.
WifiRanger will not only help you find available Wi-Fi connections, it will boost the signal so that you’ll be able to use it more easily no matter how far away you are from the router. This is a great tool to have when you find yourself parked far from the center of a campground, but if you’re boondocking it you likely won’t find a signal at all.
Mobile Phone Booster
Being stuck without your mobile phone is a first world problem that most of us try to avoid if it all possible. Having a mobile phone booster will help you get a signal when you otherwise wouldn’t have one, and it also helps your calls sound better during a conversation. A booster can mean the difference between being able to get in touch with someone in a time of need, so make sure you have one, especially on more remote trips.
Preferred Gaming System
Taking along your favorite gaming system is highly recommended, and the longer the trip the more essential it becomes. There are some pretty great options these days, including plug-and-play systems that have the games built right in.
Feeling retro? You can now get a Super Nintendo kit that comes with two controllers and a lot of the classic games including Mario Kart so you can kill hours on the road with ease. These are especially great if you’re traveling with kids.
Or you can opt for the most current systems like a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One. These systems feature some pretty elaborate games that can keep adults and kids occupied for several hours without a peep. You can also look into getting two-player games for competitions that can go for thousands of miles traveled.
No matter which direction you go with your tech purchases, the idea is to make your next RV trip easier, safer, and more fun! Always choose products that put a smile on your face and that you think you’ll use for many years to come (or at least until the next great gadget is released!).
