Gadgets For Your Motorhome

A lot of people opt for a used motorhome - and it’s no wonder! They are less expensive, and often present the same quality and level of comfort as a new motorhome.

You can actually save thousands when you make a good pick. In these crazy times, motorhomes are a great option for travellers that don’t want to use shared facilities and want to keep as isolated as possible.

What used motorhomes are easily available to purchase? You can check them out here with this very handy used motorhome finder, while they concentrate on making your used (or new) motorhome even more comfortable and road trip ready with a few amazing gadgets that everyone who drives a motorhome will love.

These are especially great if you own an older motorhome that didn’t come with all the fancy and helpful electronics that are available in the newest models.

Reversing Camera

The massive problem with driving a motorhome is that you don't have a full perspective of what's going on behind you. That's why you should invest in a reversing camera to make your journey safer, more comfortable, and stress-free.

New motorhome models may have a camera like that already, but when it comes to used ones, you're going to spend a few pounds to get one.

Also, don't worry about installing it. The whole process isn't complicated, so even if you have the only basic technical knowledge, you’ll be able to install it in no time.

Blackout Curtains

People are nosy creatures who like to see what others are doing. The same thing applies to people on the road - slowing down to take a look at a fender-bender, or looking into a motorhome when we pass by is normal (are they cooking dinner?).

Almost every person who passes you would like to take a peek inside your motorhome!

To make sure no one sees what you're doing inside, you can get blackout curtains. It's probably the easiest way to keep nosy people out. Moreover, curtains come with a little bonus.

They prevent the sun from coming in and heating your motorhome, not to mention waking you up when the sun rises - and in some places that you might visit, the sun can rise at 4:30 in the morning!

Wi-Fi Router

No internet, no party. That's the reality we live in, and that's why investment in a portable WiFi router for your motorhome is a great idea. Getting one will ensure that you won't get bored during the road.

Moreover, routers are not very expensive, and you can get one for a reasonable price. Do your research and pick the right one for your trip. It will add something extra to your long and often exhausting journey.

Get the Right Mattresses

When travelling far, it's understandable that you will need some rest and sleep. That's why investing in the right mattresses should be one of your top priorities. Being well-rested is crucial to make your journey more comfortable and enjoyable.

Some motorhomes, especially older ones, don't come with comfortable sleeping equipment. So if you want to make sure that you sleep and travel in comfort, prepare yourself for a little investment.

Levelling Blocks

Now, when you find a place to stay, it may not be pitch-perfect. It doesn't matter whether you're staying in the wilderness or at a campsite, you don't want your motorhome leaning. It makes sleeping and living in it much less comfortable.

So, to make sure your motorhome is staying straight and proud, get yourself levelling blocks. They'll make the whole camping experience much better and comfortable. All you need is two basic levelling blocks, and all your problems will fade away.

Invest in Proper Camping Equipment

When travelling in your motorhome, you usually spend plenty of time outdoors. There are going to be many stops along the way, not to mention your final destination. That's why you should have top-quality and reliable camping equipment.

Rain-proof gear, foldable tables and chairs, unbreakable vessels, and many others; all of that equipment will ensure that your trip will be a fantastic and comfortable experience.

Portable Weather Station

A portable weather station may not be an obvious choice when you're thinking about the gear you need for your trip. Still, it will come in handy when camping, especially if you're travelling through mountainous terrain.

Moreover, it's easy to install, mobile, and versatile. The advanced portable weather station models can give precise weather information and predictions that will help you plan your outdoor hikes or biking trips.


There are, of course, many more useful gadgets and pieces of equipment that will make your motorhome trip comfortable and enjoyable. Nevertheless, the ones mentioned in the article will definitely come in handy.

If you're an experienced traveller, you are probably familiar with tips and gadgets to make your trip comfortable. But if you're preparing for your first motorhome adventure, you should keep in mind that it may not be what you expect it to be.

That's why, if you want to turn that trip into a fantastic experience, you should consider purchasing at least some of the gadgets mentioned. They'll make your journey more relaxed and more comfortable.
