Off-The-Grid RV Camping: Must-Have Items

SHARE
Summer is around the corner and it’s time to have some fun. Whether you want to pack a tent in your car or check out RV rentals, you’re bound to have a great experience—especially if you go off the grid.

Going off grid will help you to be able to reconnect with nature and if you’re traveling with family, it will give you time to bond. Of course, going off grid means taking more time preparing, whether you’re going with RV rentals for your trip or a simple tent.

While you don’t have to be the king of comfort when camping in the great outdoors, it always helps to have what you need for a relaxing experience. It’s also a good idea to have what you may not need, but should just in case. The following items will ensure that you have everything you need for comfort and safety while off-the-grid:
  • Make sure that you have high capacity batteries in your RV, so you can use power without having to recharge right away.
  • A generator can help you when you run out of battery.
  • Solar panels are a good idea for those who don’t want to worry about hauling around a generator.
  • Bring an outdoor lantern that can be solar powered.
  • Make sure that you have a solar-powered charger for your phones or other must-have electronics. Although you hopefully won’t need to make emergency phone calls, if you do, you want a phone that is charged. It may not be an absolute necessity in every situation, but it’s always a good idea to have one with you.
  • Low-energy fans can help you to avoid using up all your battery while still keeping you cool.
  • If it’s cool, you will want to stay warm and if you can’t use your RV’s heater, you’ll want to use a small propane one.
  • If you want to avoid the possibility of fires, invest in sleeping gear that can keep you warm, even when the weather is much too cold.
  • Don’t forget that mosquitos love nature, just as much as you do. Make sure that you bring some nature-friendly bug repellent to keep them away from you and your body.
  • Bring campfire cast iron pans for cooking outdoors, so that you don’t have to use up your RV’s battery.
  • Make sure to bring roasting sticks, so that you have S’Mores, of course.
  • Don’t forget to bring as much water as possible, a collapsible water dispenser is a great idea. You can save space when you don’t use it, but when you want to, it’s large enough for plenty of water.
  • A multi-tool with mini versions of any kind of tool that you could imagine needing is extremely helpful. You never know when you may need a mini-ax while camping or a screwdriver and can opener.
  • Camping chairs can help you to sit back and relax, just like if you were at home. Whether you’re camping near a lake or the sea and want to enjoy the sunset or have your meals outside, they will add to your experience. You can fold them up to store them when not in use.
  • To bring your relaxation to another level, why not bring a travel hammock. Hanging out and reading outside on the hammock will be much more comfortable than hanging around indoors.
  • Don’t forget to bring a first-aid kit. While no one wants accidents to happen, in this type of scenario, it’s much better to be prepared and safe than sorry.
  • Enough food to last your trip and then some. If you’re traveling in an RV, it may be easier to bring a lot of food. But, do try to bring enough food that won’t need to be refrigerated, just in case you run out of power.
  • Why not bring some downloaded movies as well? While you will be off-grid, spending time cuddled up with your sweetheart while watching your favorite film could be extremely romantic, even in the middle of nowhere.
Traveling in an RV and going off grid is easier than simply going camping. You’ll have more space and places to store items, but you will still want to prepare. Unlike campgrounds where you can hook up things, camping off grid will mean that you’ll need to have plenty of power to last you.

Are you checking out RV rentals for a road trip to some of the nation’s best national parks or natural areas? What a fantastic idea! Just make sure to pack up the things that will help to make it a much more comfortable experience. Some items will not make a difference if you don’t have an issue or emergency, but if you do, you’ll be happy to have them. Others simply make your experience a more enjoyable one. Happy camping!
