10 Best-selling products from Amazon on in July

Here at we recommend a lot of products to you. If we know something works for our RV or someone else’s RV, we tell you about it. Just about every Amazon ad you see on our website has been tested by one of our staff members or someone we know. If we think something doesn’t work, is poorly made, or just boring, we won’t recommend it. We like cool stuff, exciting stuff, neat stuff!

Each month we’ll share with you our best-selling products. We’re all RVers, so if these products work for one of us, they will probably work for many others. Plus, some of these products are just plain brilliant (and make us wonder: why didn’t we think of that?).

Happy browsing and happy shopping! If you have to explain to your partner why you bought yet another gizmo or gadget for the RV, well, just blame us.

Full disclosure: We are an Amazon affiliate, so any of these products our readers purchase through a link on our website provides us with a small commission. It’s part of how we fund our operation.

#4 Bureau of Land Management Camping

bureau of land management camping

Working in partnership with The Ultimate Public Campground Project, this new guide describes 1,142 camping areas managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in 11 Western states. RVers who “boondock” on public lands — usually far from the crowds — will find this book very useful. Read more.

#4 RV Camping in Corps of Engineers Parks

This very popular guide lists and describes RV-friendly camping areas operated by the Corps of Engineers. This guide is perfect for RV travelers because all of the hike-in, boat-in and tent-only camping areas are not included, which makes it easy to find the campgrounds that can accommodate RVs. Corps of Engineers Parks are considered by many RVers to be the best public campgrounds in the USA. Read more.

#5 We ended the poopy smell with this black tank treatment

TankTechsRx smells plant-like or agrarian. It works, and the claim of it being safe for the environment satisfied us 100 percent after rereading Dr. Poop’s black magic cocktail has been used in the testing of 10,000 sights with fiber optic camera, further confirmed by the U.S. EPA as to the outcome.

#6 Are quick-release hose connectors worth having? Oh, yeah!

Setting up in an unexpected downpour of rain may be all it takes for quick-release hose connectors to become one of your favorite RV gadgets. Do you use them?

#7 Nature’s Willow Bug Bite Balm

This bug bite balm is perfect to keep in your pocket or purse. It’s small and lightweight, and the itch goes away almost immediately.

#8 Reusable Bamboo paper towels – good for the environment and wallet!

At first glance, you’d have no idea these weren’t regular paper towels – they look just like it! But these “paper” towels are made from bamboo and are 100% reusable. These washable towels are unbleached and chlorine-free with no added dyes or fragrances. One roll of these will replace almost 85 rolls of regular paper towels – wow! Buy a two-pack here, and save money for months (even years!) to come.

#9 2022 Rand McNally Motor Carriers’ Atlas

The 2022 Rand McNally Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas is hot off the press, barely a week old now. This is the atlas that truckers rely on to plan their routes. It helps them get “there” the fastest while avoiding roads where they could get stuck with turns too tight or bridges too low to fit through without shaving off their roofs.

#10 Easily clean those stubborn bugs off your RV

The Microfiber Mesh Bug and Tar Sponge has millions of tiny fibers embedded in the microfiber cloth that grabs and holds the dust and dirt. It is so effective it even cleans without chemicals, saving both time and money. The secret of this sponge lies in its unique, double-layer microfiber mesh. Older nylon bug sponges can harm your clear coat, but this one is completely paint safe. Learn more or order.

Shocked Happy Camper not in top 10.

As a “RETIRED” logistical engineer (truck driver) the Motor Carriers Atlas has been my go to travel companion. It lists low under passes by states and gives you the fastest routes for your travel. If you read and understand the routing you won’t have a problem enjoying your trip. Yes I use GPS but they can be wrong on routing at times. After 43 years in the road, I think I know where and which way I need to go. RV THERE YET?

#6, if it’s a downpour I don’t think I’m going take the time to install quick connect adapters to the spigot and then snap the hose on. I can’t think of a situation where these are beneficial as I connect the hose when making camp and disconnect when breaking camp. Can someone explain the benefits of these, or is it a marketing ploy? Even at home my hose is connected in the spring and disconnected in late fall. Plus the opening is smaller than the ID of the hose so it’s a restriction to flow.

We have a travel trailer with a filter and regualtor. We use them on all connections except the spigot. I screw on the pressure regulator which has a quick connect on the other end. This way I can quickly take everything apart and put in the totes. And I am not messing with the cheap plastic/nylon threads on the port at the trailer, it’s a quick pull.

Does RVTravel recommend a front & rear camera recording system ? The videos on You Tube are both funny and scary.

Stop this! I already had 2 of the 10 items, in a few days I’ll have 6 more. This is an expensive article for me. With that said, look forward to the next one!

Looked at the reviews on #9 Road Atlas. 1,4 stars don’t exist. #5 reviewers Perry much useless commentary. Anybody have a nice LARGE atlas they can recommend?

FMCA has a nice atlas. My only issue is the shipping cost more than the atlas.

If you can attend an FMCA “Conference” (FMCA’s name for a rally) you should be able to purchase their atlas and skip the S/H fees.

If you have a large RV the commercial carriers Road atlas can save your butt from backing out of a bad situation of a low clearance bridge or tunnel, IF YOU READ IT!
