As 2016 comes to a close, we look back at a great year for all things RV. As always, new models hit the market, shows and expos were as impressive as ever, and more families decided to join in on the fun that is RVing.
Now as 2017 begins, we can expect companies to roll out some of the new and improved gear, gadgets, and accessories for RVers. Here is a list of some of those essential gadgets for RVers that they should make sure to pick up for their next getaway.
Keen Women’s Hiker
This product is super important, because up until now, Keen has never made a hiking boot specific for women. It offers maximum comfort, is reinforced at the toe and designed to keep out debris. Pick up a pair for $160 out the door!
Thermacell Backpacker Mosquito Repeller
Available in early 2017, this contraption shields travelers from mosquitos and other bugs by creating a 15×15 foot protection zone. It’s easy to carry, as it fits in the same place any canister in your backpack would. Best of all, there are no messy oils and no open flames. It’s completely invisible and gives off no odors. Last, but not least, it runs up to 80 full hours to provide constant protection.
Yeti Flip 12
This leak, mildew, puncture, and UV ray proof mini cooler can withstand serious abuse. It has a wide mouth which makes it easy to load and view food and drinks inside. The Yeti Flip 12 has a cubed body that allows for easy transporting no matter where you are, and it even comes with a grid that you can use to attach anything, including a bottle opener. Prices start at $279.99.
V6 Dyson Cordless Vacuum
Let’s be honest, as amazing as RVs are, they’re not the most spacious of accommodations. With that being said, cleaning can be a bit of a pain, so this Dyson Vacuum is an essential tool to keep around. It provides up to 20 minutes of suction and at 4.5 pounds, it’s extremely lightweight. It can be used for virtually any type of surface and can easily remove dust from the ceilings to the floors from edge to edge. The price is $299.99 on the official website.

Morakniv Edlris Pocket Knife
A pocket knife can be a huge lifesaver while camping or RVing. This 2.2-inch blade will surprise you with its effectiveness. It’s made from high-quality Swedish stainless steel, treated from the highest quality, so no matter what may come your way (be it a package you need to open, rope you need to cut, or any other emergency), it’s up for the task. Best of all, it’s highly affordable at just $22.95
Suunto Quest Training Watch
