For many RVers, Memorial Day weekend is known to kick-off camping season, as many plan to honor and remember those proudly from the great outdoors.

Before the first camping trip of the year, keep your eye out for these Memorial Day camping must-haves!


RV Camping | Last Minute Memorial Day Must-Haves!



RV patio mat – Epic RV Rugs

Add some style and comfort to your campsite! The modern mat design and durable polypropylene material that’s UV protected make Epic RV Rugs a great accessory for the new season.



Indoor/outdoor decor pillow covers – Patriotic Decor Throw Pillow Covers

Decorate the inside or outside of your camper with this decor pillow cover set. They work great for camping and allow you to use seasonally without having to store large bulky pillows. Covers can be easily swapped out for different holidays. (Pillow inserts not included.)


Contained firepit – Outland Living Portable Firebowl 

Certain camping locations may have fire restrictions– spoiling dinner for those craving it over an open fire. While nothing replaces those built from the wilderness, some portable pits can do a darn good job! For example, the Outland Living Portable Propane Firebowl ditches wood and instead burns a realistic propane campfire– without the smoke, ash, or expensive firewood. It’s safer for campers, providing a spark-free atmosphere, protecting you, others, and the environment around. Another impressive alternative– the Solo Stove Bonfire uses wood for fuel offering a clean fire, efficient burn, and minimal smoke– all while safely contained.

Disposable Paper Plates – American Flag Oval Plate 

Make your gathering memorable with these red, white and blue flag paper plates


Picnic table cover – Rally Home Goods Fitted Tablecloth

As you’ve read this past winter in Germies through RV Journeys, travel can expose us to tons of germs. With that in mind, picnic tables take a beating from weather, bird droppings, and other animals scrounging for leftovers. A picnic table cover can help keep the table protected and clean for family cookouts! Plus, this one wipes clean and is reusable. 




So, our fire-making skills may have gotten a little rusty over the winter… These simple firestarters consist of a two ounce paper portion cup filled with pine shavings and recycled candle wax. Each starter will burn for approximately 10 minutes. Get ready to have a crackling campfire in no time! (For more fantastic firestarters, click here!)


Patriotic wreath – Bibelot Store

This beautiful wreath is a great way to show respect this Memorial Day! Hang on your camper door, patio, or porch.

Outdoor blanket – DOWN UNDER OUTDOORS Stadium Blanket

From camping, sports events, beach dates, picnics, family reunions, outdoor concerts, fireworks and more– this blanket is due to wrap up and hold the best of memories yet.
