RVFTA 2016 Spring Gear Guide, Part 1

It’s finally here! The 2016 Spring Gear Guide got so big that we split it into two episodes. This week we present Part One, sharing all of our favorite new goodies for the inside of the camper. Decorative pillows, appliances, and books…if it promises to make the RV experience a little easier, prettier, or more educational, we tracked it down over the long, cold winter.

Plus, we sent our Utah correspondent Brett Neilson to the Outdoor Retailer Market back in January, and he compiled a list of 7 amazing new gear recommendations.

Your camping wish list just got a little bit longer, folks.

We are including links to all of the products discussed on the show. Some are affiliate links; some are not. Some of the products were sent to us to review; some we purchased ourselves. In all cases, our recommendations are always honest and enthusiastic. Listen to the episode for a complete description of each item and an explanation of why we love it.

    One of the items that we have found most useful for the kitchen is the Cuisinart Paninni Griddler. You can either Grill or or makes sandwiches on it. It has on the removable top and bottom plates that are flat on one side and ribbed on the other. It’s great for all kinds of foods. It has multiple settings for the griddle and for the grill. We got ours from Kohl’s using all of our discounts for $39.99. The normal price is from $79.95 to 129.95.

      I’ve heard a lot of people say they adore their Panini maker. I’ve never owned one, but I’m tempted to give it a shot.
      Thanks for sharing!
