What are the best gifts for RV owners? Picking a gift for RVers can be tricky – space is at a premium in an RV so everything on board needs to have a purpose. When considering how to choose the perfect gift for the RV owners in your life, generally, we recommend selecting something that is both fun or useful and also physically small. A membership or pass that provides memorable experiences or savings are also good choices.
That said, you can absolutely get your RVer something bigger, you’ll just need to spy a little to make sure that it’s something they both have room for and can use on the road. Here’s a perfect example. We recently picked up a Clam Quick-Set screen room shelter. Yes, it’s fairly large and requires quite a bit of storage space but it is basically an additional outdoor room for our RV that we can set up in minutes, so it is definitely worth bringing along.
So, let’s get to it and take a look at our 2022 RV gift guide. Ready?

Great Gifts for All The RV Owners in Your Life
Best Gift for the Outdoor Adventure RV Owner
National Parks Pass
The America the Beautiful National Parks Pass makes a great gift for anyone traveling the country by RV. It covers entry to over 2000 federal recreation sites including the national parks and monuments, BLM land and Corps of Engineers parks for up to 4 adults in a vehicle. It’s $80 for an annual pass. Seniors are eligible for a discounted pass for $20 per year or $80 for a lifetime pass.
Note: If your RVers are veterans, Gold Star families or fourth graders, they get an annual pass for free. So make sure they know:)
Gifts For the RV Road Trip Fanatic
RV Trip Wizard
RV Trip Wizard is hands down the best RV trip and route planner I’ve used. It makes planning an RV trip so easy and fast that after years of planning our RV trips with Google maps, I’ve switched entirely to RV Trip Wizard. Plus, it lets you share your itinerary with friends, so they can let you know exactly where they will be.
The Mountain Directory
Sometimes the old school way holds up over the years and the Mountain Directory is the perfect example. Covering over 700 mountain passes and steep grades in 22 states, the Mountain Directory is a fantastic gift idea for RVers. Especially for anyone who is nervous about driving a large vehicle through mountainous terrain.
Despite an RV GPS and RV routing software, we always check the Mountain Directory when traveling through areas with steep grades or mountain passes. That way, we know exactly what to expect. It not only tells you the grade of the road, but also provides critical information like how long the grade continues, the quality of the road, the number of lanes and any curves you should be aware of.
Audible is a great way to listen to a book on those long drives whether it’s a travel book or your favorite fiction.

For RV Owners Looking for Unique Overnight Camping Experiences
Harvest Hosts Membership
Harvest Hosts is an incredible way to get a taste of the local life and make memories by camping at unique locations across the country. Members can spend the night dry camping at vineyards, craft breweries, farms, museums and even golf courses throughout North America. The idea is that you get to spend the night in your RV and in return you patronize the host business. Hey, a few craft beers or a round of golf right outside your RV sounds awesome right?
For Creating Community on the Road
Escapees / Xscapers RV Club Membership
For anyone looking for community on the road, an Escapees membership is the perfect gift. Xscapers is the branch for working age RVers. Their offerings encompass many other facets of RV life too, like mail forwarding & roadside assistance, a job board, long and short term stays, RV advocacy, education and more.
Note: Escapees membership is free for active duty military.

Great Gifts For Entertainment on the Go
A Kindle let’s your RVer bring an entire library of books along for the adventure. The best part is it takes up almost no space and only weighs a few pounds. Plus, these days you can borrow e-books from your public library from anywhere.
Amazon Fire HD
Another useful gadget to bring along RVing, the Fire lets you watch movies, listen to music, zoom with your friends and more. Even better, it’s ideal for travel books with lots of photos.

For Those Days You Just Don’t Want to Cook
