RV Stuff We Like

Here are some RV essentials we use. All Amazon links are affiliate links.

We picked up an Instant Pot during last year’s Amazon Prime Day sale. This electric pressure cooker and more has quite the following now, even amongst space challenged RVers. Ribs, carnitas, chicken thighs done in a fraction time and while staying moist and tender are some of our favorites.

The Oxygenics shower head is a must have for every RV. Toss your stock shower head and say hello to better pressure and water savings. I speak about this shower head with almost evangelical fever because it’s that good.

Our Mr. Heater Big Buddy propane heater is great for boondocking when you don’t want to run the battery sucking big furnace on your RV.

If you use the small one pound propane tanks the cost can add up. This handy adapter lets you refill for a fraction of the cost. Just invert the large tank and use forceps on the pressure relief valve for best results.

We love our inflatable SUPs from Isle . They roll up and fit into our storage bin. Inflating can be a workout on its own so I bought an adapter for our on board air compressor that works great.

Every RV needs a blog right? Bluehost makes it easy to setup a WordPress blog like this one. Sign up with my affiliate link and I will provide free consulting help to get you set up.

The Coffeehouse Investor: How to Build Wealth, Ignore Wall Street, and Get On with Your Life

This is a pretty easy read and has pretty basic investing advice of building a diversified portfolio of index funds. You can see the recommended portfolio at Marketwatch.


This is a must read. Really good background on investment theory from Princeton professor Burton G. Malkiel. Another argument for using low-cost index funds.


Learn how Warren Buffett got his start in business and go on to make billions. Get your own snowball going.

This is a classic. My wife hasn’t read it but got really tired of me quoting it too often;)

I enjoy Paul Merriman’s writing on Marketwatch. He’s easy to read and breaks down the reasons for having a diversified portfolio. The retirement advice here is solid including calculating a withdrawal rate on your portfolio.
