RV Accessories

These are the accessories we currently use in the camper van. If you have a Class A motorhome, check out our list of Top 10 Must Have RVing Gadgets.

Camping Gear

Light, mosquito repellent and filtered water are essential for camping. We’ve put these to the test in in the desert and the wetland.

Gear to Stay Connected

Having good internet while traveling is important especially if you’re working on the road.

Joe’s Gadgets and Gear

It’s no secret that Joe loves coffee. Every morning Joe hand grinds coffee beans with a Breville smart grinder and brews it in an Aeropress coffee maker or a Hario V60 pour over using a variable temperature kettle to heat the water. In addition to coffee, below are a few of Joe’s other favorite gadgets and gear including his multi-purpose backpack and Saddleback tow belt.

Kait’s Kitchen Gadgets

The Instant Pot just might be the best thing since sliced bread. We use this electric pressure cooker almost every day from perfectly cooked rice in 10 minutes to a warm hearty stews in 25 minutes. All the water we drink and use for cooking goes through the Berkey water filtration system a.k.a. the “shiny thing” in our camper van videos.

Leo’s Dog Gear

We’re not the type of dog owners that will buy every cool dog gadget on the market. These are the basics that Leo needs to stay hydrated, comfortable, happy and well fed. More importantly, these are Husky tested and approved!

Camera Gear

What camera do we use to shoot our videos? It’s usually a mix of the iPhone, Sony camcorder and GoPro. One of our favorite camera gadgets is the Moment wide lens for iPhone. It comes in very handy when we’re shooting inside the camper van. When we started, iMovie was our go to editing software, now we use Final Cut Pro X.
