What kind of accessories are you looking for, though? Do you need a GPS to get to the next destination on time? Are you struggling to sleep in your RV and are looking for a better way? Do you need more digital storage or a better connection to the internet? From navigating the country in your RV to entertaining yourself on the go, there is a gadget on this list that can help you improve your RV in some way.



The Garmin Drive 51 USA LMT-S GPS Navigator System



The Garmin Drive 51 is a GPS is a navigation system for sale on Amazon. The GPS comes with a widescreen and several setting options for purchase depending on the type of GPS that you need. Also, any type of GPS will have some highly useful features that you can configure yourself. So let go ahead and look into why this GPS is good for you and your class a.

The screen for this GPS is five inches wide, while the GPS itself is 6.4 ounces. This means that you get a GPS with a large and widescreen that you can see while driving without obscuring your view out of the windshield. The lightweight of the GPS means that you can mount it to the windshield with confidence as it won't fall when you are driving. The GPS can also be pushed in a six-inch format if you find that the five-inch is just a little too small. These are important factors to know about the GPS as they will influence if it will work for long drives in your class a.

The GPS has an easy to follow guidance system that talks to you as drive, enabling you to accurately navigate your way across the country. The unit can even single out a specific location that you may need to find within a larger area, such as a restaurant at a strip mall. These features allow you to navigate with confidence so that you don't have to worry about where you are going and just focus on getting there.

The Garmin Drive 51 is also equipped with foursquare to have tons of extra locations for you to choose from. This can range from food shops to department stores if you need to grab anything while you are journeying. You also get a trip advisor with the 51, which means that also, knowing the location of points of interest on your route, you can see how well they are reviewed. You won't have to risk a new location as you can just what type of experience people have had before you and if it is worth your time to stop there.

There are a few other features on this GPS that you should know about before you buy it. The first is that this GPS can link to a backup camera that you can place on the back of your vehicle, in this case, a class A RV, so that you can see any obstacle that may be behind you. Considering that backing up in class A, maybe one of the hardest things to learn will make it easier. This GPS also comes with live traffic tracking to see if you are heading for congestion on the road. The trade-off is that you need a phone to connect the system to a network to get those live updates.

The Jackery SolarSaga 100W Portable Solar Panel



The Jackery SolarSaga 100W Portable Solar Panel gives you the ability to charge your devices without having to be plugged directly into a grid. This great if you are boondocking with your class or on the road but don't want to plug your devices into the RV itself.

The solar panel itself is made with two panels that each have sixteen cells to provide power. The power can be utilized in two different ways: the first is to just use the panel to charge up to two USB devices. The second is that you can link two panels together so that they can charge a hackery battery system so that you can run larger devices. Either of these is a good option, and either of these can work for you on your camping trip.

If you go with the first option, it is a simple enough way to keep your devices charged whether you are parked but don't want to run the RV or if you are on the go but don't have enough plugs. This is also an advantage if you are boondocking or straight up camping without direct access to a steady power supply, and you only need to charge a few devices.

The second option is necessary if you are camping because you don't have to have a large extra generator to power your equipment. Don't get me wrong, you couldn't run the camper off it, but you could some appliances for cooking and activities. This makes this a useful tool, no matter the type of camping that you are doing.

A WeBoot Drive Reach RV

The Drive Reach RV is a cellphone signal booster offered by the WeBoot site. The booster allows you to reach the signal from far away from cell towers. This, combined with a mobile hotspot or a cellphone with a hotspot, should grant you internet wherever you go. It should also allow for better navigation as you won't have to worry about losing the cellphone signal when you are navigating. This means that you don't have to worry about losing the traffic signal either.

The booster also works while the RV is on the move and not just at a campsite, which I chose for this list. The ability to work, stream, or use devices in just about any other way will be essential while you are out on the road, which helps keep you connected.

The Drive Reach RV is also 5G enabled, so you should be able to use this for a year with the new networks being in a place so you can keep on adventuring.

The Seagate Portable 2TB External Hard Drive Portable HDD



The Seagate Portable 2TB External Hard Drive Portable HDD is an excellent solution to your entertainment and file storage solutions. Let face the fact that RV life means giving up a lot of space. Because of this, you need to find the best ways to conserving space while driving, and one of the best ways to do that is to keep a lot of items virtually. Using this drive, you burn those CDs and DVDs to this storage system to save on space.

The drive itself comes with two terabytes of storage space so you can save all of the movies, pictures, songs, and more in the easy to handle package. The system connects via a 3.0 USB cable that can connect to most devices. Whether you are moving something from a computer to the drive or trying to watch a movie on TV, you should be able to connect. This even works for gaming consoles like the Xbox one or the ps5.

Another big advantage of this drive is that it can be plugged into any device and automatically begin to work. No install required. It works with most operating systems, but the two recommended are the windows and apple operating systems. This means that no matter the device you are using, you should use this drive for storage.

The drive also comes with a one-year limited warranty so that you can have confidence in it as storage, and you can also get an extra warranty for added protection. The drive overall appears to work well for your storage purposes.
