Upgrading Your RV To Maximize Your Adventure

You hit the road in your RV for that unmatched freedom – to go wherever you want at any time. But if you’ve chosen life on the road, there are a few things that go a long way in ensuring the comfort and convenience of home no matter where you are. You might work remotely and need the tech that will keep you connected, or you may love to cook and a few upgrades to have a well-equipped kitchen are essential for you to be at home on the road. In this blog, we’ll take a look at some improvements you can make to set up your perfectly cozy, efficient, and tech-ready home no matter where you’re headed next.

RV Workspace Ideas

RV workspaces are becoming a thing, especially with the younger generation. When working from your RV, practice good body posture with the neck being leveled to the screen and try to avoid looking down, especially for long periods. Your body will thank you! If you must sit do this for short periods with a change up in scenery by doing a walk around the area that you’re in!

Remote work is a great. It allows you to have the freedom to virtually work from anywhere. Still, a functional and comfortable workspace is essential to make your work efficient and enjoyable. Consider these steps

  • Ergonomic Furniture: There are compact, ergonomic chairs and desks that can be easily folded or tucked away. For example, the Ergotron Home Workspace offers space-saving options that don’t compromise on comfort.
  • Standing Desk: Check out this website that gives good insight to different types of standing desk to fit any RV
  • Lighting: Add adjustable LED lights to keep your workspace bright at any time of day. The Philips Hue Go is highly portable, functional, and sets the scene for productivity.
  • Internet Connectivity: A reliable internet connection is non-negotiable if you want to choose your destination rather than chase an elusive cellular signal. Installing a Wi-Fi booster or a dedicated RV cellular booster like the weBoost Drive X RV will help you stay connected wherever your journey leads.

Interior and Exterior Upgrades

There are some simple tweaks to both the interior and exterior of your RV that can boost your travel experience by making your space more livable.

  • Interior Upgrades:
    • Memory Foam Mattress: Swap out the standard RV mattress for memory foam. The Zinus Green Tea Mattress is a great option and will have you sleeping like a baby in no time.
    • Custom Storage Solutions: Take back your space with custom storage solutions. IKEA offers modular systems that can be customized to make the best use of unique spaces in any RV.
  • Exterior Upgrades:
    Solar Panels: Heading out into the wild? Installing solar panels like Renogy Solar Panel Kits can increase the capabilities of your RV when you’re off-grid.
    Awning: Adding or upgrading an awning extends your protected living space into the outdoors. The SunSetter Motorized Awning is an easy and convenient option.

Kitchen Updates

Let’s not forget about the food! A well-equipped kitchen can make so much difference in your life on the road. Here are some options to uplevel your culinary game:

  • Convection Microwave Oven: A convection microwave, like the Cuisinart CMW-200, allows more flexibility beyond just microwaving.
  • Compact Dishwasher: Save on space and water with a compact RV dishwasher, such as the Farberware Portable Dishwasher—it’s ideal for longer trips.
  • Refrigerator Upgrade: Consider upgrading to a more efficient and larger capacity refrigerator, like models from Dometic. You’ll be able to store fresh food longer while you’re enjoying time far removed from places where you can restock.

Electrical and Technology Upgrades

Staying up-to-date with electrical and technology upgrades can keep your RV in tip top shape in terms of function to optimize your overall travel experience.

  • Energy Management System: An EMS protects your RV from electrical issues and helps manage power loads efficiently. The Progressive Industries EMS is a great choice.
  • Smart RV System: Integrate a smart RV system like the RV Intelligence WoBLR for level monitoring, temperature control, and more, all from your smartphone.
  • Entertainment System: Transform your entertainment system with a smart TV and soundbar. The TCL Roku Smart LED TV and Bose Solo 5 TV Soundbar are high quality options that don’t take up much space

A few targeted improvements here and there can make all the difference in your experience on the road. You can create a more productive workspace, enhance your living space, upgrade your kitchen, and stay connected with the latest technology. Focus on the improvements thatbest match your travel style and needs to turn your RV into the perfect home base for all your adventures.
