7 Affordable RV Upgrades To Try Today!

Of course, we all want the latest and greatest everything. It would be great if we could afford to trick out our rigs with all the new, flashy gear. Well, good news. We’re here this week to help you do it on a budget! There are many cheap ways to not only make your rig look better, but to function better as well. Take a look at the list below, and please let us know in the comments if you’ve found any useful ways to upgrade your RV!

        

1. Solar Power

Solar is becoming cheaper every year. Long gone are the days when you’d have to spend thousands of dollars to outfit your rig with solar. If you’re RVing off the grid at all, this is a must. You can also save money by installing it yourself.

2. LED Lighting

Solar is becoming cheaper every year. Long gone are the days when you’d have to spend thousands of dollars to outfit your rig with solar. If you’re RVing off the grid at all, this is a must. You can also save money by installing it yourself.

3. More Batteries

Most RVs come with a single 12 volt battery. You could upgrade with an additional 12 volt or even six volt golf cart batteries. This will allow you to “dry camp” for longer and run more devices. You’ll want to be careful, however, as batteries are heavy and bulky. Consider the max weight of your RV and the space you’ll need for everything else.

4. Showerheads and Faucets

We all know the difference an awesome showerhead makes at home, so why not in your RV? This is an inexpensive way to enjoy a luxurious experience on the road. The standard faucets and showerheads in RVs usually aren’t great, so you’ll be glad you upgraded.

5. Extra Shelving

This is a must, especially if you’re travelling with a family. You need plenty of space for towels, clothes, accessories, etc. Wire shelves work great and are inexpensive. This can include towel hangers, paper towel holders and shoe racks as well.

6. Roof Seals

This is inexpensive, and can actually save you a ton of cash in the long run. A leaky roof can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage, and even cause health problems if mold creeps in. Try Eternabond tape, which will quickly seal anything.

7. Bigger Mirrors/Backup Camera

To really enhance the safety of your rig, consider adding bigger mirrors or even a backup camera (this can even save on insurance!). Obviously, RVs aren’t always the easiest thing to maneuver, so you want to have all your bases covered safety-wise. Anything you can do to see better while driving is well worth it!
