Folding Step Stool
Can’t quite reach the upper cabinets in your RV? Kikkerland’s Rhino II folding step stool is great if you need just a little extra boost. The step stool is 8.5 inches high, weighs 1.4 pounds, and can support up to 300 pounds of weight, so it’s great for reaching shelves, changing lights, or even cleaning windows. The Rhino II also features a stronger hinge and durable antislip rubber feet, so you’re not going to slip and slide while on it. Available in black, red, white, and green. Price is $20.
Stovetop Oven Kit
Not all RVs come with ovens as standard equipment, which can be a real bummer, especially for bakers. The Omnia Kit 1 provides a solution to this issue by essentially operating as a small stovetop oven. According to product literature, it is easy to use, requires no installation, takes up little space, and weighs very little —just 1.1 pounds. When used with a stovetop, the oven’s three sections combine to provide even heat from above and below. The kit includes the Omnia oven, a silicone mold, an oven rack, oven mitts, and a storage bag for everything. MSRP is $179.99.
Don’t let the cold stop you from enjoying the great outdoors this winter. FMCA’s New Era Sideline Beanie is a great way to keep your noggin from freezing while proudly showing off the FMCA logo. The hat is decorated with heather stripes and a dual-colored pom-pom, and it has an extra-warm fleece lining. It comes in black and scarlet, navy blue and graphite, and royal blue and gray. Price is $15. Looking for other cozy winterwear? Peruse the FMCA online store to find other seasonal staples, such as a microfleece jacket, hooded sweatshirt, or windbreaker.
Phone Insulator Case
Whether you’re traveling to warm beaches or icy lakes, protecting your phone from temperature extremes is very important if you value its lifespan. Phoozy’s Apollo thermal capsule protects your device from damaging heat and battery-draining cold by incorporating the same chromium thermal barrier that NASA uses for its spacesuits. The Apollo is also water resistant, so it’ll float in water and protect your phone from rain, snow, and spills. Price is $32.99.
Mold And Mildew Stain Remover
Iosso Products’ Mold and Mildew Stain Remover is a quick-dissolving concentrate that cleans and rejuvenates surfaces, making them look new again without harsh chemicals like bleach or chlorine. Ideal for awnings, inflatables, carpeting, and umbrellas, the biodegradable formula reportedly won’t harm fabrics or alter their colors. The stain remover is equally as effective on hard surfaces such as vinyl, plastic, and fiberglass. A four-ounce bottle of concentrate makes one gallon and costs $4.95.
Custom Camping Lantern
WMWCrafts’ metal camping lantern is a great way to simultaneously illuminate and personalize your campsite. A small hole at the bottom of the lantern eliminates worries about it collecting rainwater. A solar candle provides the light. Each of the lantern’s four sides can be customized with vinyl graphics, making it possible to add a favorite phrase, name, city, or color. Buyers also can select from eight premade patterns. The lantern itself comes in black and white. Price is $41.25.
