Travel Trailer Accessories

Travel trailer accessories are extras for your RV or camper, but for some they may be necessary.

Most of these are general things that are already included with your camper.

You will find extra upgrades in your RV which include some nice accessories.

Let's look at some of the things that are considered "extras" that can make RV camping more enjoyable.

Your RV windows and treatments are standard, but you can get treatments that are a lot nicer and fancier.

Some RVs have those what we call "cardboard curtains" and some have cloth ones.


Another "accessory" that for some would be a necessity is an RV generator. Some to consider are the DuroStar, Generac, WEN, Briggs & Stratton, Champion and a Hyundai. There are others as well.


RV awnings are not standard on all RVs. They are certainly nice to have when it is raining. You can sit outside and stay dry. The covering offers protection for your belongings, also.  Awning fabrics are important, too.


RV tire covers are one of those travel trailer accessories that are actually a good investment. You can get them as separate or tandem style. Tire Covers protect tires from the weather and especially the sun rays.

When you are not using your RV and plan for it to sit for a while, you will want to put on an RV cover. This will protect it from the elements.


An RV satellite dish is a luxury to have. If you like watching TV, you will need one of these.


Let's see, an RV battery charger is a great accessory to have on hand. A portable outdoor power unit is convenient for phones, laptops, ipods or anything that needs a quick charge.

One thing you will need is a RV holding tank. You never know if you will get a site with a sewer. If you plan to stay a while, a portable tank is needed.


Accessories Inside

Some of these fun things do add up to extra cost, but they are well worth saving your nickels and dimes for.

You'll want to organize your kitchen with these kitchen accessories.

I love my RV central vacuum system. It is a really handy option to get. No need for a portable, bulky one. This is built in and is a "plus" in my book. If it comes with one, you will love it!

Your RV mattress is standard, but you can get an upgraded one that is more like home, including a Memory Foam Mattress. Just get the proper size for your bed.

A camping air bed is another great item to have on hand. You never know when you may have unexpected company and with a self-inflating air bed tucked away, you are ready!

Along with the air bed, how about camping cots. They store away nicely and can be brought out and set up in a flash. You have got to have a handy lightweight cot that is easy to use.

Depending on your circumstances, you may even need to look at camping toilets.


Wow! Betcha didn't know there were so many travel trailer accessories to think about, didya? There are more......... How about an RV propane tank. It is nice to have one when you need it.

One of the most convenient accessories is a compact television.

They are nice to have for guests or just in your bedroom.

We can not do without some nice portable camp chairs or even portable camp hammocks.

Both of these offer a great afternoon nap.

With the fold-away designs, they are easy to load, store and use.
