Wanted a hat to go adventuring in!

Cheap, but it works! I traded out the Indiana Jones pin for a silver Kokopelli though. Just call us desert rats! LOL

Dash Cam!

After researching and trying out a few dash cams, the Spy Tech A119 wins our vote and shopping dollars!


Must Have Small Appliances & RV things

Battery Can Opener That WORKS GREAT!

I paid more than Amazon is charging when I picked mine up in a kitchen-bath store several months ago. I’ve opened lots of cans since then and I haven’t had to change batteries yet. I just set it on top of a can and push the button. I turn around a few seconds later, once it has completed one circle and push the button again to stop it. EASY!

Basic Food Processor

I bought this one at Sears or JC Penny, I forget which, but the price was about the same. I was leery, but it has helped me make a lot of hummus since then! It’s also good at smoothies and banana-based “ice-cream,” but I can hear it struggle with frozen chunks, so I chop my fruit smaller before freezing now. I’ve also made pesto and some sauces with pureed veggies. So far, it’s lasted me more than two years of moderately heavy use.


Steam that food!

We use this for fish, veggies, Asian-style dumplings, rice…works fantastic and is easy to clean!



I paid less than $28 for this toaster on Amazon in 2013. Perfectly browned bread and bagels that almost jump out of the toaster. But the price is now more than $100!

Pop Corn!

It’s plastic, but it works! I think I bought mine at Walmart, but the cups have been hard to find in the stores of late. 

12-volt TV and DVD Player

Works great, but audio doesn’t get loud enough to hear if AC is running overhead in same room. One could plug in some sort of sound bar or external speakers to help, though. Was great while boon docking!

Shower Head with On-Off

Works great, no drips!

Solar charger

I purchased a suitcase-style similar to this one, but it’s not available at the moment. It was great for keeping the batteries in my old Class C charged while boon docking and not wanting to run generator.


Folding Rocking Chairs!

These were comfortable, but the price has gone up a lot since I purchased them back in 2013! The bottoms rusted a bit by the second year.

Cordless Vacuum!

This was fabulous in my old fiver, even with beagles!

Portable scooter

Great for those with mobility and lifting issues. It easily comes apart into four pieces and stows around fiver hitch in the pickup bed!

Love Hummers!

This worked great on the dinette window! It even stuck with me once on a travel day when I forgot to stow it.

Sewer stuff…best by far.

Black and Grey Tank Treatments

This is what our Entegra RV tech recommended to keep out tanks and sensors functioning properly.


When one likes a big pour over and a thermal pot.


Fresh Lemon!

Love this stuff! Great in iced tea, soups, etc.

Our favorite mustard!


TVP in bulk

For making homemade veggie sausage and steamed asian-style dumplings, sloppy Joe’s, etc…LOL

Love these beans!

Talk about fast food!


When you can’t find tahini in the stores, have it delivered!

Sushi Please!

Seaweed Salad!

Soak then mix with apple cider vinegar and a splash of sesame oil. OMG!


Soup & Seasoning

The veggie base is great for a salt substitute, too! The mushroom one is versatile as well.


When the doc says to take calcium with D…and a veggie lifestyle requires a B-12 supplement, one picks the best value!
