Three common and useful RV accessories are an RV awning, an outdoor entertainment center with a stereo or television and a self-aligning satellite dish. Other common accessories include GPS units specifically designed for RV travel, folding step stools for easy reaching, washing, and cleaning and a weather radio.
Awnings can easily be added to any window by the RV dealer. Self-aligning satellite dishes increase accuracy when watching television. Travelers can choose GPS devices designed to find trip routes based on RV height and weight restrictions. Weather radios keep travelers in touch with local conditions, have hand cranks for use when batteries fail and can charge devices when the power is out.
