Our Favorite 5 RV Health Accessories
The following RV accessories will help provide new ways to exercise, keep your food and drinks fresh on long drives, and provide lightweight storage while exploring new areas. These RV accessories will also make great Christmas gifts for friends and family.
1. Insulated water bottle
This is my new favorite go-to water bottle. The Boulder Insulated Water Bottle from EcoVessel is a must-have for long RV drives or while outdoors enjoying the scenery.
I took one with me on a two-hour hike and the water stayed ice cold throughout the journey. This stainless steel bottle is insulated thoroughly enough to keep cold beverages cold up to 60 hours and hot up to 12.
I tested it when I first received it and it kept water cold indoors for 10 hours. With a variety of colors to choose from, this product could be tailored to each family member and some close friends for holiday gifts this year.
A feature that is different than most bottles is the removable strainer. Uses for the strainer include fruit, ice cubes, and tea.
2. Bento boxes
This next item is great for so many reasons, events, etc. Whether to use for a picnic, food storage in the RV or at home, a Bento box is a versatile container to have on hand.
These divided boxes can also be used for beauty supply storage, kids lunches, or to store food to have on hand during a hike.
3. Whirly Board
While out on the road, there may not always be a gym nearby, and the Whirly Board allows for stretching, cardio, and some yoga, all with just a few feet of space required.
This skateboard-like piece of exercise equipment is great for working on balance and core strengthening. The board is both lightweight and easy to store. It is perfect for RV usage, as the Whirly board takes up little space. You can increase your twirl level with the YouTube videos that help you learn new spins and tricks, allowing you to spin 360 degrees.
It’s a fun way to engage all the core muscles. I found it easy to use, and with so many workout options, I had a week’s worth of variations to keep me busy!
4. Cooling Cuff
This next item is one that I love to wear while I am gardening, walking, or doing workouts.
The Cooling Cuff is worn on your wrist like a watch and features a cold pack that rests against the inside of your wrist. This gel pack is prepped in the freezer for a short period of time prior to usage and instantly cools your body temp down when worn. The Cooling Cuff is a veteran-owned business and is made in the USA.
5. Travel bag
Another convenient item to have while exploring new locations is a versatile bag like the NOMADIC 30L Duffel/Backpack. This bag is waterproof and perfect for any outing or event.
This travel bag features a cool strap system that allows a quick change from duffel to backpack carry. I found the ventilated shoe compartment a neat asset. There is a water-resistant flap that can cover the door, changing it from ventilated to waterproof.
So, when choosing Christmas gifts for your friends and family (or for yourself), keep these products in mind. With options ranging from food storage, bags, and unique exercise equipment, there are plenty of gift ideas to choose from.
One of the best parts about RVing is engaging with the community of traveling enthusiasts. iRV2 forums allow folks to chat with other RVers online, and get other perspectives on everything RVing, including RV accessories, destinations, RV mods, and much more.
