Santa is looking for suggestions

Christmas will soon be upon us. I'm looking for suggestions for RV related gifts for my wife, my son,(he and his better half have inherited our last unit) and of course suggestions for my Santa list.

I'm looking for some great suggestions and possibly the source of these.

I'm looking for something unique ?????

BY THE WAY I HAVE BEEN A VERY GOOD BOY THIS YEAR AND IF SANTA IS GOOD TO ME I WILL LEAVE LOTS OF MILK AND COOKIES AND MAYBE A GLASS OF BEER.

What a lovely thought!

Here's something that every RV owner would appreciate, not only on Christmas Day, but year 'round!



Happy Holidays to all...

Francesca

Perhaps a wooden plaque or sign with their name to put outside their rig at campgrounds would be nice.

Try some LED ground effects lighting for the coaches. Really nice sitting out at night with those lights on.

Ground Effects

Now you have me thinking. That would look sooo nice. What have you used to create this effect? Would LED rope lights work well or what do you suggest?
Do you run them off 12 volt DC or 120 AC?

I had them install while at a rally in Pine Mountain, GA. I did not do the work. The best I recall they are two, about 8 foot, section of 12v led lights. A small hole was drilled into my front passenger side bay where my TV and 120 electrical outlet is. The 120 is converted to 12 v and wireless remote is combined into a small unit that stays in the bay. The lights are operated by the remote. You can have your choice of a solid steady color, a rotation of colors, or a couple of different light shows. The lights are mounted to a rail under the coach with plastic ties. My setup goes from front tire to rear tire. It makes for some nice "recessed" lighting if you sit outside and sip on something cold while you talk or just look at the stars.

My very favorite gadget is called a Firedancer. It's a small self contained portable propane fire. The case is made of aluminum and it has a screw on lid so that it packs nicely. We use the heck out of ours. It's perfect for a quick (and small) fire in the evening or early AM. It can be used in most places that have burn bans or open fire prohibitions. We have even used ours under our awning, in a down pour. It's not very cheap but is a great value. Don't get a cast iron knock off. The aluminum cools quickly so you can pack it up almost immediatly. LOVE it!


Here's the Firedancer Website but you can find them at many retailers as well.

I have something similar, the Campfire in a Can. I bought mine at Camping World several years ago now. It too makes a nice little fire that you can use in the same manner as Janet H describes.

x2 for Campfire In A Can. It allowed us to have campfires when a wood-fire ban was in place due to drought & when we couldn't bring our own firewood due to our state being quarrantined because of the emerald ash borer - or in the case of the pic below, the site didn't have a fire ring.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

One thing I would like is new back-up cameras, color ones and side ones too, I have nothing right now. Other great RV gifts include, new tires, wheel covers, awnings, and maybe a gas gift card or free nights at an RV park.
