5 Camping Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is right around the corner and we’ve got some great camping gift ideas for Dad! If you’re looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift for the outdoor enthusiast in your life, use some of these ideas to get started – followed by a great vacation in your new or used RV! All of these items can be found with your favorite online retailer or outdoors store.

Multi Tool

This is a given. You can’t (or shouldn’t!) go camping or find yourself without the essential tools, and a multi tool has different can’t-live-without-it functions all in one.

Solar Lantern

Collapsible solar lanterns are space and energy efficient – and really, really cool. They do exactly what they sound like: collect solar energy during the day, then can be used as a lantern at night. The best part? They can even charge your devices!

Portable Charger

This is one of our family’s handiest gadgets. Charge it before you hit the road and use it as a power bank for any of your devices. It’s a great thing to have on hand when you’re out of range of a charging outlet! And, it doubles as a great emergency tool to have on hand to make sure your devices stay charged during power outages.

Waterproof Fire Starter & Ferro Rod

Waterproof fire starter is a must-have item for our family! Nothing is worse than wet matches or kindling that won’t light, but waterproof fire starter defies the elements and burns hot every time. Plus, with a ferro rod, you can be assured you’ll get hot sparks every time. No more worrying about wet matches!

Paracord

Everybody has seen paracord bracelets, but the cool thing is that they’re multipurpose!  The bracelet can be unknotted in a pinch – or, save yourself the time and just buy a bundle of paracord to have in the supply kit. It’s good for just about everything from tying things down to hanging or anchoring essentials.

What are you waiting for? Get your Father’s Day shopping completely taken care of for Dad – and contact us if you have questions about shopping for a new or used RV or scheduling some RV service and maintenance before you hit the road!

RV Tips for Camping with Pets

If you’re planning your camping trips with your family and can’t imagine leaving your fur baby behind, we don’t blame you! Follow our tips for traveling and camping with pets to make sure it’s be enjoyable for everyone, and gives you plenty of opportunities for successful camping trips in the future for years to come!

Pre-Trip Plans  

How does your pet feel about road trips? Does getting in the car create excitement, or anxiety? Now is the time to start preparing them for a road trip. If they’re not used to traveling, start acclimating them to short distances and gradually lengthening it. If they experience anxiety or motion sickness, ask your vet for recommended medications to help. This is also the right time to make sure your pet is microchipped, gets a preventative tick/flea treatment, and has all their shots up to date.

Know the Policies

Also before you leave, you’ll want to check on the campground policies ahead of time for rules regarding pets are, such as cleaning up after your pet and any noise ordinances. Knowing ahead of time what the rules and expectations are will spare everyone involved frustration and hassle.

Pack Their Bags!   

You’ll want to pack for your pet, and more than just their food and feeding dishes. Make sure you bring any medications they are currently taking, and a pet first aid kid (ask your vet for suggestions on what to include). You’ll also want to remember to pack a leash, favorite pet toys, and pet waste removal bags.

Say Cheese

Now’s the time to really make sure you have the photos of your fur baby on your phone that you really need – just in the event your pet goes missing. Include front and side photos of your pet to include all visible markings, and make sure the photos are clear and well-lit.

Increase Your Travel Time

Plan to add in extra travel time to allow your doggo to run and play, stretch their legs, and do their business outside. Your pets need time to stretch their legs at stops along the way just like you do, and if you make sure to make time for it in advance, the road trip will be more comfortable for everyone!

We have a great inventory of new and used RVs for sale, and many RVs today are being designed with pet owners in mind – such as including exterior leash hookups or pet feeding stations inside.

Camping Games Your Whole Family Will Love

You probably have plenty of fun activities in mind for your upcoming camping trip in your new or used RV from Modern Trailer Sales. But take these great ideas for camping games with you in your back pocket. You never know when they’ll come in handy!

For Little Kids

Kids love scavenger hunts! Browse Pinterest for some nature and camping scavenger hunt printables. They’ll love coloring in their scavenger hunt list and you’ll love that it keeps them occupied!

Get creative on a nature hike with your family. Keep the scavenger hunt list in your head! Give your little ones things to find along the way. The game I play with my younger kids is “Sets of Five.” I have them search for 5 acorns, 5 yellow leaves, 5 spotted rocks, and so on.

For Middle Grade

Make sure to bring a package of glow sticks for this one! Snap the glow sticks to get them glowing, and set up pegs for a ring toss. When it gets dark, take turns throwing the glow rings!


For Teens

Get camp life set up quickly and with some fun competition! Give teens certain set-up tasks – like a campfire starting race using flint fire starter (and safety parameters and guidelines, of course!).

A silly game you might be able to get everyone in on is sleeping bag hop – zip up your teens in sleeping bags, and have them hop a set distance (like an old school sack race).


For The Whole Family

What you want most out of your camping trip is time well spent with your family and the good memories that comes from that. Make sure to have at least one night around the campfire with s’mores and stories – leave the phones inside and just enjoy being with each other.

You’ll also be smart to plan for inclement weather, so pack a couple of board games. My family loves cooperative games, which mean we all work, win, and lose together. It’s a great way to develop teamwork!
