Choosing the right RV equipment is essential if you want to enhance the quality of your travels and extend the life of your rig. From RV heaters to good cast iron cookware, try to look for the best blend of price and quality. Some items might be more expensive than others, but choosing the better piece of RV equipment could mean saving time and money later down the road.

From RV inverters to RV toilets, each component, each piece of equipment plays an integral role in your vacation or your every day life (if you are a full-timer). To ensure a good, hassle-free time, make sure you do your research before you buy and be sure to double up or triple up on other items. This will make for a smooth, worry-free, flexible trip.

RV Equipment and Terminology

It's interesting to note some of the different terms associated with RVers across the United States and Canada. I have mentioned the terms part-timers, full-timers, and vacationers. Well, within the "part-timer" segment, there is a group of RVers known as snowbirds. These adventurous travelers live in colder climates and usually hit the road in their RVs during the cold winter months and explore the warmer climates, much like the many beautiful snowbirds flying south for the winter.

Most of the initial recreational vehicles were trailers and their inception closely followed the birth of the automobile. Vacationers wanted a viable option to choose from other than cabins, hotels, and motels. Over time, these trailers saved their owners money and time, even though they had to sacrifice a little luxury. The first line of recreational vehicles were not equipped with sewage systems and instabeds, so many of the camps provided toilets and showers.
