Whether you are preparing for the upcoming 2023 camping season or are already on the road, you need the right RV accessories that work with your lifestyle. When you’re stocking a motorhome, travel trailer, fifth wheel or toy hauler, choosing the right camping gear, tools, gadgets and space-saving accessories can be crucial for your rest and relaxation. From cooking conveniences to keeping pets pristine, here’s some of our favorite RV accessories of 2023.

Pet RV Accessories

MudBuster by Dexas

Every dog owner knows there’s nothing worse than muddy paws trouncing through your clean RV. Even though our four-legged friends are inevitably going to wind up with dirty paws, there’s a new product available at General RV that easily and effortlessly cleans their paws. After going viral on TikTok, the MudBuster by Dexas has quickly become an essential item for any dog owner.

After filling the tumbler with warm water, simply place your dog’s paw inside, scrub and twist. The small silicone bristles do all the dirty work and prevents water from splashing everywhere. After cleaning each paw, simply dry them off with a towel. The MudBuster by Dexas is available in a range of colors and small, medium and large sizes to accommodate every breed. The tumbler, bristles and retainer ring are even dishwasher safe, making the MudBuster easy to clean, as well.

Paw Spa Complete Pet Washing Kit by Oxygenics

Take the bitterness out of bath time with the PawSpa SuperWash Complete Pet Washing Kit by Oxygenics. The SmartPause feature quickly brings the spray to a trickle as you lather your pet, and the rubber massaging nozzles produce a relaxing sensation. The 84″ hose helps with those hard-to-reach places, and the easy spray setting selector makes for quick adjustments with five settings to choose from. The SuperWash also includes an outdoor spigot and two-way shower adapter, making it easy to use both indoors and outdoors.

Collapsible Pet Feeder by Dexas

Collapsible Pet Feeder by Dexas

The Collapsible Pet Feeder by Dexas features a clever twist on the traditional dog bowl. The feeder flattens to a mere 1.5 inches for easy storage. It’s also dishwasher safe. The Collapsible Pet Feeder’s versatility and sturdiness make it perfect for RVs and camping. The Dexas pet feeder is available in three sizes, and can be used as a dog bowl, stand, cat bowl or general pet feeder.

Outdoor RV Accessories

Smokeless Fire Pit by Blue Sky Outdoor Living

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. However, the inverse doesn’t always hold true. The Smokeless Fire Pit by Blue Sky Outdoor Living is the perfect addition to your camping gear. Smokeless fire pits create a constant flow of air that fuels the fire, creating intense heat that burns close to 100% of the available organic material, i.e. wood.

The Smokeless Fire Pit by Blue Sky Outdoor Living can burn traditional firewood or wood pellets. This fire pit was developed with heavy-duty steel and high-temperature paint. Once cooled, the fire pit breaks apart into two pieces. Simply dump the ash, stow one piece inside the other and pop it into the carrying case.

Slim-Fold Cook Station by GCI Outdoor

Reliable, easy-to-use and even easier to store, the GCI Outdoor SLIM-FOLD Cook Station is the perfect portable accessory for any RV. The Cook Station sets up and breaks down in seconds with a hassle-free, one-piece design. It features an aluminum countertop, lower rack for storage and four plastic fold-out side tables. The side tables include beverage holders, stem glass holders and hooks for garbage bags or cooking utensils.

Freestyle Rocker by GCI Outdoor

Kick back at the campsite and relax in style with the Freestyle Rocker by GCI Outdoors. The Freestyle Rocker is designed with spring-action rocking technology, allowing for smooth rocking while enjoying your favorite outdoor activity. It features a convenient carry handle, beverage holder, mesh backrest and is easy to open and close with patented EAZY-FOLD technology. With a broader and tougher frame, this heavy-duty rocking camp chair has a 400 lbs capacity and sets up in a snap – ready for a relaxing afternoon.

Kitchen RV Accessories

Retro RV Bamboo Cutting Board by Camco

Cut vegetables, fruits, meats and cheese with ease and confidence on this RV-shaped cutting board. Bamboo features natural antibacterial properties and is resistant to moisture for easy maintenance. With a usable surface of 12 inches by 7.25 inches and surrounding “gutter” to catch liquid, the durable bamboo surface will not damage or dull knives.

Coffee Mugs by Camp Casual

Inspired by the classic, speckled tin mug, Camp Casual’s ‘The Mug’ brings a new kind of ‘cool’ to the campground. It’s great for coffee time, tea time and cocoa time, anytime! The sturdy, ceramic design is microwave and dishwasher safe. Camp Casual’s The Mug comes in a variety of designs and is the best way to start your day at the campsite. There’s even a Mommy & Me set that features The Mug and a matching sippy cup that is BPA-free and FDA approved.

Life is better at the campsite with the Wine Tumblers 4-pack set by Camco. The ultra-durable tumblers feature double vacuum walls that insulate your beverage, keeping it hot or cold longer.
