Sometimes it’s the little odds and ends that you need help finding when it comes to RV parts and supplies. And these little things can make a difference in your camping experience – whether you’re renting out your RV or using it personally. It can be overwhelming to know where to start, so we turned to our community of RV owners to get their favorite RV essentials! Today we’re sharing a list of products that are tried-and-true.

Security zip-ties

One of the most easily damaged parts of an RV is the awning. Because of that, when renting out their RVs, some owners choose to disengage that option. An easy way to do that is by using these zip ties to secure the awning in place in its closed position.

Aluminum siding cleaner

RV’s can be magnets for scratches and marks – afterall, being outdoors so often, you’re bound to get dirty! Needles to say, it’s hard to get an RV clean and keep it clean. Some members in the owner community have seen success with this wax to get their rig sparkling.

Glue for popped paneling

Wear and tear is part of the gig with a rig. (Okay, that was lame but we had to!) Popping of paneling and trim is inevitable, though, with traveling and as your RV ages. A quick and easy way to put it back in place using this glue.

Utility trailer level

As any RV owner knows, a level is probably one of your most used tools. So making sure you have levels that last is important. Community members have shared these levels as being reliable.

Wireless brake controllers

For a multiple vehicle-shared trailer solution, these brake controllers have worked well for our RV owners.

WiFi: Skyroam

Having Wi-Fi is a really nice touch, not only for your renters but when you’re camping, too! Many RV parks offer Wi-Fi, but the signal is typically weak. We’ve partnered with Skyroam to offer our RV owner community packages for strong and reliable Wi-Fi.

RV Furniture and Accessories

Looking to upgrade or replace your furniture? We have great options for you! Check out Trekwood or Pellandent for replacement parts and furniture or Furrion for new additions.

Portable Generator

Having a portable generator is handy for renting out your RV and when you set off on adventure yourself! This portable generator is highly reviewed.

GPS Tracker

Renting out your RV requires a lot of trust. But we also totally get wanting peace of mind knowing where your rig is and where it’s going. This is where GPS trackers come into play – owners signed up with RVshare can get a special offer through Fleetsharp. Some owners have also had luck with this one from Amazon.

Grey Water Tank Cleaner

No one is particularly crazy about the smell of certain water tanks in an RV. Our owner community swears by this RV Holding Tank and Cleaner. It eliminates the odor entirely without the need for the excessive perfume to cover the smell.
