The holidays are upon us, which means we have an excellent opportunity to show our RV friends and/or family members how much we love them. Sometimes, spending that extra buck (or several bucks) is the way to go. If you’ve got the dough, take a peek at the following list and get ready to treat your favorite RV friend or family member (or yourself, you’ve probably earned it!). With ten categories and thirty-four products, we can almost guarantee that you’ll find something for even the toughest recipient.
#1: The Gift of Power
Charge devices, use appliances, or keep things running off-grid. No matter your giftee, they’ll find a use for any of these power stations.
RELiON’s Outlaw – $999.99
At 32 lbs, the Outlaw 1072S is light enough to bring anywhere. Keep small and medium devices and appliances charged, or power your off-grid essentials. And with multiple output ports, almost any device can plug into it. Get the Outlaw.
EcoFlow’s RIVER Pro - $479.00
With three 600W AC outlets and a 720 Wh capacity, the RIVER Pro can power up to ten devices at the same time. It also charges to full within two hours. If your off-grid friends don’t know about EcoFlow, consider this the perfect introduction. Shop here.
Want the full RIVER Pro run-down? I Heart RVing’s very own Nate Kennedy has a full YouTube review of this power station, which you can watch here.
GoPOwer’s Duracube 500W Portable Power Station (Duracube 500) – $799.99*
For durability, the Duracube 500 ranks high. Made of aircraft-grade aluminum, it can go just about anywhere from a tent campsite to boating on the water. And with a built in Battery Management System (BMS) your favorite RVer will have protection against voltage, current, temperature, or reverse polarity issues. See where to buy it here.
*Price varies based on seller
Cummins Onan PS200 Portable Power Station – $219.99
For uber-portability, look no further than the Onan PS 200. At 4 lbs, it’s small enough to fit in a backpack, but mighty enough to provide power for up to nine devices at a time. It also comes with a built-in flashlight! Shop here.
#2. The Gift of Airflow
The importance of portable A/Cs cannot be overstated. It may be cold now, but when your friend is on the road in six months, he or she will be relishing the sweet, cooling breeze of the portable AC you bought them.
Zero Breeze Mark 2 – $999.00 - $1,949.00*
The first real portable air conditioner. It’s the product Zero Breeze makes, and it doesn’t get any better than the Mark 2. If you need convincing, check out Nate’s review on the I Heart RVing YouTube channel. If you are already convinced, gear up here.
*Price varies by “Type”
LG 6,000 BTU Portable A/C – $339.00

Evapolar EvaLIGHT Plus EV-1500 Personal Evaporative Air Cooler – $129.99 - $149.99

#3. The Gift of Cold Drinks
When camping, the best food and freshest drinks can only come from coolers crafted for the job. These portable power coolers are far more than ice in a bucket—they’re full-on smart refrigerators. And they make for smart gift, indeed.
Dometic CFX3 55 IM Powered Cooler - $1,199.99
Ruggedly built, Dometic’s CFX3 is meant to go anywhere. That’s 53L of storage, or 83 cans (we counted for you). And for maximum efficiency, the CFX3 mobile app gives your giftee complete control over the temperature, right at their fingertips. Check it out here.
Camco Outdoors CAM-750 Portable Refrigerator – 75 Liter – $469.99

#4. The Gift of the Grill
If your grill-master pal is in need of an upgrade, give these a look. They may just repay you by grilling you up something delicious. A true win-win.
Traeger Ranger – $449.99
184 square inches of cooking space, or in laymen’s measurements: one rib rack OR six burgers or ten hot dogs. But no matter what your friend will grill, they can use Traeger’s Keep Warm Mode to be sure that their food is always ready to eat. Buy it here.
Weber Q 1000 Gas Grill – $229.00
Portability is the name of the game with the Weber Q 1000. It’s less than 15” tall and less than 30” wide, but it can still cook a whole meal in one go. Check it out here.
Blackstone Tailgater combo (Griddle + Grill) – $399.99
A true grill-master is versatile. So, give them versatility! The Blackstone Tailgater lets the griller cook up the meats on the grill box, sear bacon, eggs, or hash browns on the griddle, and then offers a direct burner for ovens, stock pots, or skillets. Get versatile here.
Camco Olympian 5500 Stainless Steel RV Grill – $229.90

Ice enthusiasts will tell you about the “good ice.” If you know one of those people, this is the machine for them. The Euhomy Nugget Ice Maker makes “nugget ice,” softer, airier ice that’s easier to chew on without hurting one’s teeth. And it comes with a 1-year warranty. Buy it on Amazon.

#6. The Gift of Safety
It’s one thing to hug someone to make them feel safe, but it’s another to get them a keyless door lock system they can count on. Luckily, the two aren’t mutually exclusive.

#7. The Gift of Shade
You can’t necessarily gift your RV friend a tree (you could, but it won’t be ready in time for the holidays if you haven’t planted it yet) but, you can give them the thing that provides shade and comfort in their RV: window coverings. And there’s really only one place to get them: Magne Shade.
Magne Shade Custom Windshield or Window Cover – *price varies based on product*
Magne Shade has a slew of RV coverings, including winshield shades, EZ Fold Tire Shades, Mirror Covers, Wiper Covers, and more. If there’s a part of your RV that can be protected, Magne Shade has you covered, literally. Oh, and they can be customized. Shop Magne Shade.

#9. The Gift of TV that Travels with Them
If you’re friends or family aren’t the type to miss their favorite team play while they’re on the road, then flexible TV is the ultimate gift. And if you know I Heart RVing, then you know we heart DISH Outdoors for all TV needs. So much, in fact, that you can take $50 off any DISH Outdoors antenna bundle with code IHEARTRV.
DISH Outdoors Antenna Bundle – $50 OFF with code: IHEARTRV
It’s TV anytime, anywhere. Your recipient won’t need Wi-Fi or a cell signal to watch, and with Pay-As-You-Go plans, they’ll only pay for the months they use (unless you’re extra generous and cover the first few months for them). Use the IHEARTRV discount here.
#10. The Gift of Sound
