The Best Father’s Day Gifts for RV Dads
Treat dad to adventure this year with some must-have RV and camping tools, gear, accessories, and more.
After the year we’ve all had, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that one of the biggest gifts every father is looking forward to is quality time outdoors. Even the most minimal of dads will appreciate something that encourages him to make the most of his time outside. Bonus points if you’re able to spend time enjoying the outdoors with him! Not that anyone is keeping score, of course, but as a father myself, I can attest that my favorite gifts are the ones that involve my kids or reflect their thoughtfulness and appreciation towards the best job I’ll ever have. So, go ahead and check out this list of the best Father’s Day gifts for RV dads and put a smile on dad’s face this year.
Camp Cooking Starter Bundle
Food is a love language. Some would even argue that food is the most underappreciated language of love, but with this starter bundle of camp cooking essentials, your dad will know you recognize it. When he pulls this out the next time you’re off-grid, you’ll know immediately it was a solid choice. With everything included (cutlery set, cast iron square pie iron, pot, bowl, cup, grill, and even a bag of charcoal to get him started), this is the gift that keeps on giving.
Robert Irvine Insulated Can Cooler
Nothing goes better with grilling than a nice, cold beverage. It’s a fact. No one can deny it. This faux wood-inspired can cooler brings a new chic aesthetic to the world of drink coolers, much like your dad does to the world of fathers. Plus, the double-walled and vacuum insulated construction is able to keep a single can cold for hours… not that a good beverage would ever last that long anyway, but it’s nice to know it’s possible.
Camco Speckled Mug
If your dad happens to be an early riser, this speckled mug is the perfect companion to hold his morning coffee. Designed with the phrase “Life is Better at the Campsite” which we all know is accurate, this mug is perfect for home or on the road bringing the comfort of each to the other. He might not get the worm, but rest assured he’ll get his caffeine fix for the day ahead.
iJoy Lumina Light-Up Bluetooth Lantern Speaker
Life is about the journey, not the destination so enjoy conversations after sundown with the Lumina Lantern Speaker. Listen to your Dad repeat all those stories of your childhood he’s told a thousand times with his favorite tunes playing in the background. You know he adds new details with every retelling and that smile of his somehow gets bigger, too. With 6-8 hours of playtime, this lantern can be hung nearby for a soft glow while the wireless Bluetooth connection pairs easily with any device. It’s a vibe that will have everyone in the family gravitating towards it like moths to a flame.
MacSports Club Chair
There’s something about parking that entices fathers everywhere, especially an RV dad. After parking the RV after a long drive, there’s nothing they want to do more at the end of the day than park themselves into a comfortable chair. Enter the MacSports Club Chair. Cozy and oversized, stain and weather-resistant, durable and lightweight, this chair will undoubtedly be his new favorite place to sit, thus making it a great Father’s Day gift.
Go big or go home, right? How about GoPro instead? It’s a safe bet this may be the best gift on the list simply because it allows your dad to capture what he loves the most: time with you. Documenting life on the road with the inevitable bumps and the breathtaking views is priceless. He’ll be able to extend the previous excursion even when it’s over by looking back on all the footage he collected along the way, much like reliving his early days of parenting, it’s a trip down memory lane he’ll always be geared up for.
RAM Mount GoPro HERO Suction Cup Mount
Since we’re living in a world of hands-free everything, the RAM mount will hold his new GoPro while he keeps his eyes on the road. The suction cup mount adheres to glass and nonporous surfaces and the multiple adjustment points ensure your Dad will find the perfect viewing angle with every use.
Swiss Army Knives Hunter Pro M Alox
If there were one single item that screams “I’m a father!” it would be a Swiss Army Knife… or maybe a necktie, but we still have that out-of-office reply turned on, so we’ll stick with the former. Cement your dad’s status in the club of fatherhood with the Hunter Pro M Alox. Boasting four functions and ideal for one-handed use, it’s an item he didn’t know he needed but will never live without going forward.
Carhartt Workwear Short-Sleeve Pocket Tee
Fathers and fashion, two things that aren’t always synonymous with one another. As a result, we often lean on our kids to keep us current in that department. The Carhartt short-sleeve tee is one he’ll grab on and off the road and think of you each time he does. The loose fit provides plenty of room to move comfortably whether he’s loading up the RV on the next trail or cranking the lawnmower back at home. A soft feel fabric promises to get better with time, just like your old man.
Dads. Where would we be without them? They help mold us by teaching us life lessons and, hopefully, raise us into becoming a better version of themselves. Show your Dad how much you appreciate him with any one of these Father’s Day gifts above and throw in a handmade card while you’re at it. Trust me, there’s no adventure quite like fatherhood (in or out of the RV) and he’ll cherish any souvenir you give him regardless of how little or big you are.
