5 Ways To Make Your RV Even Better

Here are some ways to make your RV ride a little sweeter and a little more “you.”

5 Ways To Make Your RV Even Better

By Kevin Gardner

If you’re the proud owner of a recreational vehicle, you’re probably always looking for ways to make your ride a little sweeter and a little more “you.” Here are five improvements you can make to up your RV game.

Improve Your Safety

When you hit the road, your first priority is likely the safety and security of your family. That’s why it’s a smart idea to install a vehicle camera system for both interior and exterior monitoring of your RV. Dash and road cams can help you keep a watchful eye on your surroundings, whether you’re in motion or not, while interior cameras can help protect your valuables when you’re away from the vehicle.

Another upgrade that can make your travels safer is an indoor weather station. These devices provide up-to-the-minute satellite data about approaching storms and road conditions, warning you about what might lie ahead. If it looks like you’re in for bad weather, you can stay put rather than get stuck in a bad spot down the road.

Improve Your Storage

There’s a seemingly constant battle for many RV owners to create enough storage room inside the vehicle. Luckily, product designers have done their best to address this need, helping you make use of every available nook and cranny. Over-door towel racks for bathrooms and kitchens are a must, but you can also use this space to hang shoe racks, supply organizers, or even garbage baskets.

Slide-out cabinet shelves in the kitchen and bath can also help ensure you’re not wasting any space that would normally be hard to reach. Many feature slots and cradles built for cookware lids, cutlery, and dishes to maximize storage area while keeping things organized.

Improve Your Comfort

Given that you put in a lot of hours driving your RV, comfort is vital. Upgrading your captains’ chairs to ones that offer maximum support and functionality can make your drive time much easier on your body; bonus points if the chairs swivel to give you extra interior seating. Many feature memory foam and other ergonomic design elements for extra cushioning, whether you’re driving or relaxing.

Look for similar features when it comes to your RV mattresses. At the end of the day, reclining on a lumpy, thin mattress is no way to unwind. Specialty retailers have designed beds and linens that fit tighter vehicle spaces while providing five-star luxury.

Improve Your Fun

Just because you’re on the road doesn’t mean you have to rough it. Nowadays, you can install a home-grade audio/video system in your RV, complete with the ability to stream digital content and blast sound through surround-sound speakers. You can even add smaller monitors in each sleep bay for personalized entertainment; opt for screens that are Bluetooth compatible so viewers can listen through headphones and not disturb others.

If you’ve got a robust entertainment system, a pro tip is to invest in a wireless repeater so you can get the most out of free campsite Wi-Fi. That way, you can avoid the buffering and disconnections that often occur when an entire park full of recreational vehicles is pulling off the same Wi-Fi.

Improve Your Style

Last but not least, if you genuinely love your RV, you probably don’t want it to look like every other camper on the road. So to give your ride a unique look, consider splurging on a custom paint job. Talented artists can bring almost any vision to life, whether you favor an eye-catching geometric graphic, a sweeping landscape, or something more personal – perhaps your family portrait would look amazing heading down the highway? Get creative and turn your RV into a visual statement that expresses your unique style.

If you’re a recreational vehicle devotee looking to take your camper to the next level, there are lots of ways you can upgrade your ride. Making one or more of these modifications can make your RV feel like a one-of-a-kind home away from home.
