For the RV dad who loves to read, gift him an Amazon Kindle. RVs don’t have much space for a collection of paper books, so a Kindle is a great way for dad to read as much as he wants without taking up space in his rig. This $90 Kindle is on sale for just $60 right now and will allow dad to do all the reading he wants in his camping chair underneath his RV awning.

Father's Day RV gifts: Tool Bag

RV Tool Bag

Every RV dad needs an RV toolkit! If there’s one thing RVers know about RV life, it’s that you have to be prepared for anything. That’s why having a tool kit on hand is essential for your RV trips. This Carhartt tool bag allows dad to store his tools in a way that’s both ultra cool and easy to access if anything goes wrong. Bonus tip, fill the tool bag with all of his favorite tools or even a pair of cowhide leather work gloves.

Harvest Hosts Membership

Does your dad enjoy great views, good wine and a cheap campsite? Gift him a Harvest Hosts membership! This membership allows him to camp at over 3000 gorgeous campsites around the US, like wineries, farms and local attractions. Once you buy him his membership, he can utilize any of these beautiful locations for FREE overnight camping! Harvest Hosts encourages overnighters to purchase something from the small business they’re camping with, but we don’t think dad will mind picking up a bottle of win in exchange for a stunning campsite. A Boondockers Welcome membership is another similar membership. Both are great RV gifts for dad, and when you use our links to sign up, you get 15% off!
