Close Up Of Hand Scraping Icer From Car Windshield With Scraper

If you are still wondering what to get someone on your list and that person has an RV, stop by our warehouse to pick up some RV accessories. You’ll be able to fill your entire list with accessories that make RVing more fun and more comfortable.

Solar Systems

For those who dry camp a lot, solar systems come in handy so you won’t have to use the generator so much Choose from systems as low as 85 watts and as high as 160 watts. These are great if you don’t want to hear the drone of the generator while you are trying to watch your favorite television show at night or if you don’t want to drain the house battery at night with lights.

Lawn Chairs and Mats

Pick up sturdy lawn chairs including a sturdy director’s chair style or outdoor mats to spread out under the awning. The mats allow you to step outside barefoot and they keep you from walking through mud if you are camping on dirt and it rains. The mats also keep the area under the awning softer if you are parked on a cement pad.

Kitchen and Cooking Accessories

Pick up a small ice maker. If you are tired of getting ice for cold drinks from the cooler, you can have your own portable ice maker. Or, pick up burger, brat and pie irons to make campfire cooking easier. You can even grab a popcorn popper that you can use over a campfire. Make cooking outside even easier than ever with these accessories.

Holiday Decorating for Your RV

Christmas background with decorations on wooden board

If you are spending Christmas in your RV, you may want to decorate it, even if you are staying in the boonies with no one around. Decorating the RV inside and out always makes it look more homey during the holidays and it definitely gets you into the holiday spirit.

Before you head out for the Christmas trip, be sure your RV is in good working order, especially if you will be camping in a cold climate and not heading south. Stop by Indiana RV Connection to have all of your RV’s systems checked, including the heat, plumbing, electrical and the engine and transmission on motorized RVs.

Lights

Hang lights from the awning. If you camping near a fir or pine tree, add lights to the tree. And, if you are not putting a tree inside, hang lights over the door or in other areas where they won’t be distracting to the television.

Christmas Tree

There’s no doubt that you won’t be able to fit a 6-foot tree in the RV – they just take up too much space. However, you can still have a Christmas tree. Buy a potted spruce to set in a corner or on a side tables. You’ll be able to decorate it just like a full-sized tree. If you can find one that is about 2-3 feet high, you should be able to find space for it; and then, after the holidays, you’ll be able to plant it in your yard.

Cards

Bring the Christmas cards you get before you leave with you. Hang them on the fireplace mantle or tape them on the molding around one of the doors. They’ll add more Christmas spirit to the RV.

Garland and Boughs

Line the top of the fireplace mantle or a side table with fresh fir boughs. Decorate them with small ornaments. Line the top of the fireplace with garland and hang the stockings from the mantle. You’ll have that fresh pine smell inside, plus the RV’s living area will look festive.
