Would you like to have a large opening skylight over your bed to help cool the RV in hot weather, to allow more light, or to look out and see the stars on a clear night? Or maybe an opening skylight over the kitchen to extract cooking odors and provide additional natural lighting? You can with a custom skylight.

Stronger, tougher and more secure than a bungee cord, Davis Instruments' MiniShockle is a bungee cord on steroids. It's ideal when boating, camping, biking, motorcycle riding or anytime a load needs to be solidly and safely held in place.

The first line that Ezra Pound wrote in 1912 in his poem, Ancient Music, was "Winter is icumen in." But for RVers it's the third line which states, "Raineth drop and staineth slop" that reminds us that winter not only brings cold and wind, but also "staineth slop" that soils our carpets and not only looks awful but also shortens the lifespan of your RV's carpeting.

Roof vents are a terrific feature of RVs. They allow a flow of air to circulate thru the RV, light to help brighten the interior, and a vent with a cover can be left open in a storm for air flow without letting the rain in.

Just as small feet have been desirable in cultures going back hundreds of years, large feet on a fifth-wheel trailer are considered desirable, and could garner appreciative (if not covetous) stares from fellow RVers.

This is a test. Open your engine compartment. Do you see remnants of acorns. If you do, you have squirrels considering moving in with you. If you don't, you don't have any squirrels in your neighborhood or campground - yet.

Think about how nice it would be to arrive at your campground after a long day of driving to find your dinner is already cooked and ready to eat.
No need to go out to eat when you're tired or get out in that kitchen and rattle those pots and pans. Just kick back in your camp chairs and enjoy your dinner while watching the sunset.

A potential problem with RV furnaces is their necessary opening to the outside for air flow. There can be either one or two openings to the outside. This is prime nesting area for mud daubers, paper wasps, and spiders.
The wasps build nests on the fan blades and the smaller bugs can go all the way into the burner assembly. The only way to get them out is to disassemble the furnace and clean everything.
