I recently recommended the Leatherman tool as a good tool to have along as an RVer. Well, upon doing some research I found the new Leatherman New Wave has taken their tool to a whole new level, and now is especially good for RVers. The New Wave:
• Is a full-sized 17-tool multi-tool in one package
• Includes 2 pliers, wire cutters, 2 knives, saw, scissors, 2 files, 2 drivers, bottle opener, 2 double-ended bits and more
• Is 100 percent stainless steel construction
• Includes lanyard attachment and combination leather/nylon sheath
• Is backed by a 25-year limited warranty
What’s great for RVers is that the company offers a set of bits that fit the driver which include every type of bit imaginable, including the square Robertson bits that are found in RVs!
These tools aren’t cheap — but you won’t find better quality and they’re the kind of thing that lasts for generations. Both items are available on Amazon.
