After you’ve decided on the perfect travel trailer for your needs, it’s time to start thinking about upgrades. Even if you primarily use your RV for short vacations, there are many little touches you can make to help your RV feel more like home. By adding a few simple upgrades, you can make your camper experience much better. Here are some ideas for upgrading the experience with your trailer or RV:

Slideouts are a great way to add extra space to your RV. If you’re considering upgrading to a larger RV, slideouts can be a good option since they provide more space without increasing the overall size of the rig. They’re also great for tall people who need more headroom.

A trailer lock is a great way to keep your travel trailer or RV safe while you’re away from it. By upgrading to a high-quality lock, you can rest assured that your camper is secure. This is especially important if you plan on renting out your RV when you’re not using it.

Headlamps are a great thing to have to hang around your RV or trailer, you’re going to need them eventually. Why not be prepared and have a few on hand? You can never have too many headlamps!

If you’re looking for a way to make your RV or travel trailer more comfortable, consider upgrading the mattress. A good mattress can make all the difference when you’re trying to get a good night’s sleep while camping.

A fire extinguisher is very important to have in any travel trailer or RV. This is a great way to be prepared for any emergencies that may occur while you’re on the road.

Roadside safety kit, that may include a first-aid kit, flares, and jumper cables. This is a great way to be prepared for any emergencies that may occur while you’re on the road. You’ll need to be able to alert anyone that is present or far away that you’re in need of assistance or help.

LED Lights are an addon/upgrade to any lighting scenario in any travel trailer or RV. These are great to have because they use less energy than traditional light bulbs and they last much longer. You’ll never have to worry about changing a light bulb in the middle of your trip again!

Adding solar panels or solar power to give your RV that true off-the-grid feel will make your travel trailer or RV experience that much better and you’ll be able to charge just about anything, including your own batteries so that you can have power anywhere the sun is shining.

Investing in wifi extenders, portable hot spots, cell signal boosters, and more can really make the RV or travel trailer experience better. Now you can stay connected even when you’re in the middle of nowhere!

Installing Motion sensor lights in small spaces like closets and other tight spaces in RVs that are usually poorly lit. You then light up these dark areas with affordable LED lights that are motion-activated. This way, you’ll only have to worry about turning on the lights when you’re actually in the space and not waste any energy.

Including a popup smokeless fire pit for the outside is something that is really trending in the last year or so. This is a great way to able to have an open fire without all of the smoke. and be able to put a grate over for open fire cooking and grilling.

Adding storage areas that are magnetized for spices, knives, and other utensils is a great way to save space and have things within arm’s reach. These can go on the inside or outside of travel trailers and RVs.

Including awnings over windows and doors are a great way to keep the heat out in the summer months and also gives you some extra space to hang out outside without being in direct sunlight.

There are many different RV upgrades but one of the best is a backup camera. This way you can really see what you’re doing with a long-haul travel trailer or RV. You can also get ones that include a sensor so that you’ll know if someone or something is behind you while you’re reversing.

Upgrading your hitch, and tires, or getting a tire pressure monitoring system are all upgrades that will make towing your travel trailer or RV much easier and safer. You’ll be glad you made the investment when you’re on the road and it will alleviate a lot of stress and worry about the valuables that you’re towing.

RV or travel trailer owners should also think about getting a custom cover for their RV. This is a great way to protect your investment and keep it in good condition while it’s not in use. It will also help to keep it clean and free of debris.

Lastly, a great upgrade is an awning. These come in all sorts of sizes and colors but they’re a great way to add some extra space to your travel trailer or RV. They also provide shade and protection from the elements. You can get them manual or electric and they really are a game-changer when it comes to enjoying your time while camping.
