Give Dad Something He'll Really Love This Year
Father’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to go searching for that perfect gift once again. Instead of giving your RVing dad yet another necktie this year, why not get him something he really wants. These products will not only put a smile on his face but make his time the outdoors even more meaningful and fun.
Coleman RoadTrip Classic Grill
Every RV dad fancies himself a master chef at the campsite or while tailgating. With the right tools, that just might be true. The Coleman RoadTrip Classic is a portable propane grill that is lightweight, easy to set up, and fits nicely inside an RV. It comes with a die-cast aluminum cooking grate and griddle, a removable drip pan, and a push-button ignition. In short, everything you need to make incredible meals no matter where you go. Don’t forget the RoadTrip’s conversion kit for using full-size propane tanks.
Yeti Rambler 30 oz. Tumbler
Yeti’s line of drinkware is perfect for use in the outdoors. The cups, mugs, and bottles are durable, good-looking, and can keep drinks hot or cold for hours. The Rambler 30 oz. Tumbler offers plenty of capacity to keep dad hydrated and comes in a variety of colors. The cup even includes a lid with an innovative magnetic slider that makes taking a sip easier than ever. You may want to order two, though, as mom might want one of her own.
Keen Newport H2 Sandals
Great for use in and out of the water and on the trail, the classic Keen Newport sandals are comfortable and fun to wear. The compression-molded EVA outsole provides good traction on various surfaces, while the lightweight, washable upper will keep dad’s feet cool all summer long. These versatile shoes are sure to be a hit on all of his warm-weather adventures.

Who says you can’t get a good cup of coffee at the campsite? The Stansport French Coffee Press whips up a mean pot of piping hot coffee in no time at all, without the need for a filter. The unit is durable and easy to clean, ensuring that dad and the rest of the family get his day off to a great start.
Smartwool Hike Light Crew Socks
Socks might not feel like a very personal gift, but if Smartwool makes them, they’ll be much appreciated. The Hike Light line of socks is made specifically with hikers and backpackers in mind. They are very comfortable, breathe well, and can keep dad’s feet cool and dry on the trail. Made from merino wool, they also have natural antimicrobial properties that prevent them from collecting odors. Something the entire family can appreciate.
Pelican 70QT. Elite Cooler
Every dad enjoys a cold beverage at the campsite, and the Pelican line of Elite coolers can ensure that happens no matter where he goes. The 70-quart model has plenty of room to carry drinks, food, or anything else that needs to be kept fresh while on the road. This model can keep ice frozen for days at a time and is rugged enough for any adventure. The built-in handles and cup holders come in handy too.

Give dad the gift of music and light with this combination Bluetooth speaker and lantern. The speaker offers excellent sound and can be wirelessly paired with additional units to create a multi-room audio experience. Meanwhile, the lantern lights up in ten different colors and includes options for brightness and a timed auto-shutoff mode. Perfect for relaxing around the campsite.

This pole comes ready to use straight from the manufacturer, making it perfect for beginning anglers and veterans alike.
Garmin RV 780 GPS Device
Specifically built for use in an RV, this Garmin GPS device provides navigational data based on the height and weight of the vehicle. This allows it to automatically select the best route, avoiding tunnels and overpasses that could be problematic and selecting roads best suited for the motorhome. The RV 780 provides traffic alerts and warnings when approaching steep grades. The unit also has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling with a smartphone.
WeatherX Weather Radio
It pays to keep a close eye on the weather when camping, but getting an updated forecast can be a challenge, especially when staying at a remote campsite. The WeatherX Weather Radio can access AM, FM, and weather bands to provide emergency alerts and current information, even while boondocking. The device features a rechargeable battery that can be powered up using an included DC adapter, a solar panel, or a hand crank. It also comes with a built-in flashlight that is very handy to have at your disposal for those “just in case” situations.
National Parks America the Beautiful Annual Pass
The national parks are a favorite destination for many RVers, which makes the America the Beautiful annual pass a great gift. Once activated, pass holders can visit as many US national parks as they like for an entire year without paying any additional entry fees. This is an excellent way for travelers to visit Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, and some other truly great landscapes throughout the country.
