The best gifts for RV owners include gadgets, tools, and helpful guides. Here's a list of options in all price ranges…

Jennifer and I made a video once about the top ten Christmas gifts for RV owners. But I thought I would extend that list to include even more great gifts for any time of the year!

I’m going to share that Christmas gift video again with you at the end of this post. Though it’s centered around Christmas, the gifts are great outside of the holiday season, too. RVers have birthdays, too. 🙂

One thing that most RVers love to do is track and talk about where they have been. This sticker map lets them track everywhere they've been in the United States in a visually appealing way.

They can also mount it in their RV, which is a nice and decorative reminder of travels. Plus, it’s a great talking point for anyone who visits. This gift is practical and decorative, making it one of the best gifts for RV owners.

2. Cute & Funny RV Throw Pillows

Best Gifts for RV Owners

Many people have made a colorful comment or two when trying to park and level their RV. Or have experienced the less than joyous sides of RVing.

That’s why these pillows, with humorous sayings, are fun gifts for rv campers. Various sayings include:

●    Sorry for what I said while I was setting up the camper trailer

●    Camping, where you spend a small fortune to live like the homeless

●    Sorry for what I said while we were trying to park the camper

This practical gift would come in handy for any RVer. Whether I need to fix my awning or clean up a spill in a high cabinet, this little step stool is there to save the day.

6. Charcoal Air Purifiers

25+ Best Gifts for RV Owners (2023) 2

Let’s face it, RVs can be stinky sometimes. Quarters are small, so any odor from the kitchen or restroom can permeate the entire RV.

If your rig has been sitting around for a while, it may just have a stale odor of old linens that can happen when not being used.

Give these charcoal air purifiers to help keep that RV smelling fresh. They are small and can be tucked out of the way. It’s small, practical, and affordable. So, it’s one of the best gifts for RV owners from those on a tight budget. Or, for those who are about to travel with a stinky family member!

7. Outdoor Portable Propane Fire Pit

25+ Best Gifts for RV Owners (2023) 3

This is a great gift for those RVers that love to enjoy an outdoor fire but do not want to lug or hassle with firewood.

Why is this fire pit one of the best gifts for RV owners? It can be turned on and off quickly, so you only have to hassle with a fire when you are ready to enjoy it. It is compact and comes with a travel bag to make transporting it a breeze.

Being on the road can be noisy. That is why these noise-canceling wireless headphones can be a great choice for any RVer. They can enjoy music, a podcast, or some other audio program while drowning out the loud road noise.

Backing up an RV can be quite a task. Especially for those without a lot of experience or driving a new rig.

This is one of the best gifts for RV owners who like practical gifts. This toolset can come in handy for many issues that a motorhome owner might face, from a loose screen door to a stuck trailer hitch. The possibilities are endless, so having awesome tools on hand can come in, well, handy.

25+ Best Gifts for RV Owners (2023) 12

Bugs are an unavoidable reality and nuisance of RVing. No matter where you travel, you can't get away from biting bugs, but you can deter them from biting you.

An excellent gift option for RVers is to create what we call a “bug off kit.” This is a kit that includes as few or as many bug repellent devices and products as you want.

20. Emergency Roadside Kit
