Top 5 Van and RV Essentials

When living off-grid, you need just a few essential items to create a comfortable home. You need to make sure that you can stay warm, that you have a source of power, and have access to clean water. Having fresh air in the cabin is also crucial, especially if you're traveling with pets. And of couse, you definitely want a place where you can store your food and beverages for longer periods of time.

Continue reading and learn more about the 5 van life essentials you need to have in your RV to truly make it feel like home.

Air Heater

An air heater like the Airtronic 3 D2L is one of the most important van life essentials. Any experienced vanlifer will tell you that staying warm at night is crucial for a good night's sleep. A good air heater heats up quickly, works silently, and uses very little fuel. It will reliably keep the cabin warm and cozy, and prevent the pipes under the floor from freezing.

Solar Panel and Power Station

Any off-grid motorhome needs its own source of renewable energy. Installing a few solar panels on the roof is a great way to keep your appliances running without needing to plug in at campsites. Combine a Go Power! solar kit with an EcoFlow DELTA portable power station and you have a convenient source of free, clean energy for all your RV devices and appliances.

Refrigerator and freezer

No matter whether you’re going somewhere for the weekend or living off-grid full-time, having a fridge is a must. A high-quality refrigerator/freezer is efficient, spacious, and reliably keeps your food fresh and drinks cool. Indel B portable or mounted fridges like the Cruise 65 are some of the best on the market, featuring cutting-edge SECOP compressors and a tasteful, modern design.

Air Conditioning

It can get very hot in a van in the summer, which is why an AC is a van essential. A good air conditioning unit will keep your cabin cool and provide fresh air circulation, while remaining power efficient. The Indel B OFF Plein-Aircon is a state-of-the-art AC, which quickly cools off your RV’s interior, letting you avoid the discomfort of the summer heat.
