When you first buy an RV, most people can't help but be impressed with all of the included bells and whistles that typically accompany recreational vehicles nowadays. But just like a conventional home, most people eventually want to personalize their home on wheels to tailor their specific needs. Some may even be available as dealer upgrades direct from the manufacturer. Here's a look at four cool RV upgrades to consider.
You can give your RV the ability to provide a spectacular light show with flexible LED light strips that resemble neon. LED lighting is brighter than traditional incandescent lighting, and they consume less power. Manufacturers offer lights suitable for both indoors and outdoors. They are also available in multiple colors, allowing you to choose which color scheme works best with your recreational vehicle, and are usually dimmable and include a remote for easy control. LED strips are also great for placing inside cupboards and closets for a little extra light.
Solar systems are useful if you spend a lot of time camping off-grid or at campgrounds without electrical hook-ups. You can also save money in the long run on park fees if you have the ability to generate your own electricity and don't need a site with it provided. You can also get off the beaten track a bit more when electricity isn't a concern, and don't have to worry about the noise pollution of running the generator more. Your solar power system will quietly recharge your battery bank for you.
When personal space is at a premium in a recreational vehicle, having the ability to plug into the sound system for music and movies can help keep the peace. Car audio auto service experts can create a custom sound system that will meet your specific needs.
Extra Storage Space
A popular storage solution for tradition homes is the common over-the-door pocket shoe organizer. This inexpensive product usually has several rows of pockets. These rows can be cut into strips and applied with hook-and-loop fastener around the base of the bed and then covered with a dust ruffle. Use for shoe storage or anything else you want to keep hidden and out of the way. Depending on space and your bathroom setup, you can also hang a shoe organizer over the outside of the shower rod or door for storing rolled up towels and keeping toiletries contained and handy.
