RV Accessories

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. The Bug Shirt and head net work really well to keep the bugs away.

Gear to Stay Connected

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

Joe’s Coffee Gadgets

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.

Kait’s Cooking 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.

Travel Gear

We’ve been traveling full time since 2015 and have found some great travel gear that we love including backpacks, hats, toe socks and Joe’s favorite belt.

Camera Gear

What camera do we use to shoot our videos? It’s usually a mix of the iPhone protected by a Pelican case, Sony camcorder and GoPro. When we started, iMovie was our go to editing software, now we use Final Cut Pro X. For a full list, head over to our post all about our video equipment.
