Camping World carries everything you can possibly need or want to outfit your RV. Just browsing around the store will give you ideas.
Amazon has a broad selection of RV accessories and fittings online.Destinations with high concentrations of RVers may also have mom-and-pop RV supply stores. Marine supply stores may carry items common to RV’s and boats, such as water hoses and disposable toilet paper.
Checklist for outfitting your new RVSome of these accessories may be included in your purchase as part of the deal you negotiate, but you are otherwise left to your own resources. We’ll try to help you find what you need at competitive prices.*
* Prices listed may change.
Blue Tote Tank. Towable tank to cart wastewater to the campground dump station without have to move your rig. I’ve owned both sizes listed here and prefer the 15-gallon for ease of handling and storage. 15-gallon, $104 on Amazon. 25-gallon, $209.00 on Amazon
Note: The longer the chord, the thicker it should be. I use a 14-gauge extension cord for connecting to standard (15-amp) outlets when the connection is distant, and I’ve used it when parked in driveways for the night. $47.63 on Amazon
Patio carpet — Keep off the dirt or gravel pads. Various prices and colors on Amazon. Also, see the patio mat collection at Camping World. I bought mine at Wal-Mart.
Patio Chairs — We have a fold-up rocker, a gravity chair, and fold-up camp chairs. Buy at a store where you can try them out.
A cordless drill is handy for stabilizers. Use a 3/4″ hex-drive socket. Basic tool kit containing a hammer, screwdrivers, etc., and I often use a rubber mallet. Note that you may need a special screwdriver for interior screws. You probably have most of the tools you need in your garage or basement.
Dish soap is a multi-purpose, inside and outside the trailer. I also carry a spray bottle of water and vinegar for quick cleanup, and a second spray bottle with bleach and water to sanitize hose ends before hooking up. McGuire’s Marine One-Step Wash and Wax removes tough stains and black streaks that won’t wash off with dish soap.
Bucket, sponge and brush mop with expandable handle for reaching high sides of the trailer and cleaning the roof. A foldaway broom and Swifter are perfect for cleaning interior floors.
