RV awning and patio accessories

Every RV enthusiast has their own setting-up rituals, whether they’re in a state park, boondocking or settling into a commercial campground that comes with full hookups. Some overnight campers like to get things level, put out the slides, make a quick camp and go exploring right away. Folks who intend to camp for several days and nights generally prefer to stage a homelike campsite complete with a reversible patio mat that acts as a porch.

When an RV patio rug is in place, the interior of the motor home is apt to stay free of tracked-in dirt and debris. Patio mats provide more stability for tables and chairs and they feel better under the feet than bare ground, too. An attractive awning deployed directly above a patio mat provides shelter from the elements while at the same time creating additional living space. A Carefree of Colorado EZ Zipblocker can be attached to an awning roller to add a see-through ‘wall’ that blocks 85% of the glare but none of the view.

What’s your patio rug and awning style?

While some RV aficionados prefer to keep a bare-bones campsite without a lot of frills, others enjoy setting up an elaborate campsite with every comfort of home. Most folks like something in-between. You might be surprised how much hominess can be created with a few simple touches. A potted geranium, real or artificial, adds a colorful bit of décor that doesn’t require much space to store. Hang a wind chime from your awning and enjoy the same gentle song wherever your RV adventures may take you.
