He has recommended hundreds of great gifts for RV Dads over the past five years on our podcasts and on our blog. These are some of his absolute favorites gadgets. They make him a happy camper on just about every camping trip and they are guaranteed to make the RV Dad in your life a happy camper too.

Whether dad likes to read a good book around the campfire before bed, or do a “heroic” hands free diaper change in the dark without waking everybody up, this headlamp is for him. Jeremy has tried just about every headlamp under the sun, but gives Petzel high marks for the comfort, durability, and affordability of its Tikka line.
