2024’s Top Custom RV Accessories

There’s plenty to be excited about in this list of top motorhome accessories!

There’s a running joke that buying an RV is the easy part–the real work comes with actually packing it. RVers have no shortage of awesome gizmos, gadgets, and upgrades for their motorhomes. From fire safety to pet luxury, there are plenty of ways to customize the inside of your RV and significantly improve your quality of life while doing so!

To that end, let’s take a look at some of our top accessories from 2024, starting with:


Let’s face it–there never seems to be an IDEAL time for a tire to blow out. It doesn’t matter if you’re comfortably parked at a campsite or traveling through town: blowouts suck! That’s why more and more drivers are getting excited about RettroBand, an accessory that protects blowouts from damaging your tire rims while giving you an extra margin for error in replacing tires or driving to a garage.

This product looks almost like a donut that sits inside the inner ring of a tire. In the event that a tire bursts–or otherwise loses air–the ring prevents the tire rim from making contact with the ground, preventing the damage from compounding any further. Given how expensive it can be to replace a bent tire rim or a damaged axle, this product pays for itself the moment that you experience your first flat.

THIA by Proteng Fire Suppression

When an RV accessory is also used to keep NASA spacecraft safe, you know that you’ve found an awesome upgrade. Proteng is an automatic fire suppression system that’s miles ahead of almost anything else on the market, both in how easy it is to use and how effectively it can prevent fire damage to your RV.

PROTENG Fire Suppression

What separates PROTENG from other fire suppression systems like extinguishers and sprinklers is that you don’t have to manually engage it–and there’s no risk of it going off accidentally! This system consists of several self-contained wires that snake through your RV’s interior, such as through the paneling and along the inside of the engine compartment. When these wires are heated by flames or other combustion, they immediately burst, dispensing a highly effective extinguishing agent all over the heat source.

Internet On the Go Wi-Fi Extender

Just like with blowouts, there’s never a good time to lose Wi-Fi or phone service in your vehicle. Whether you’re trying to navigate to a specific turn or about to crush level #226 in whatever candy-themed puzzle game has taken over your phone. There’s something to be said for having consistent Wi-Fi away from your RV as well–you never realize how much time you spend on one trip ducking back inside to check your phone until you no longer have to.

There’s a reason that Internet On the Go has been such a popular solution for the Wi-Fi hungry over the last year. This Wi-Fi extender both solidifies your coverage inside your RV and extends it in a full 50-foot radius around the outside of it!

AIM Club Membership

Okay, so this one isn’t TECHNICALLY an accessory; you aren’t buying a physical product for your RV. Instead, think of an AIM Club membership as a key that opens up all sorts of exciting social aspects of owning an RV. Membership allows you to access all sorts of awesome nationwide events and meet similarly minded RVers in the process!

AIM Club Membership

In addition, an AIM Club membership also comes with a bunch of bonus perks, which include discounts on washes and engine services, along with better rates for vehicle insurance. Even if you’re the kind of anti-social RVer who dreads the thought of interacting with another person, this membership is still worth it because the benefits and discounts easily exceed the cost of signing up!

Camco Rhino Blaster

This sewer tank rinser goes a long way towards preventing harmful buildups in your RV’s different systems. While rinsing your sewer tank can be an easy job to forget, it’s important to do so frequently to make sure that the underbelly of your RV isn’t the breeding ground for all sorts of disgusting microbes. This product is awesome in making sure that your sewer systems stay clean. The direct jets allow it to effectively flush your sewer lines while a vacuum breaker makes sure that there isn’t any backflow. Best of all, it features a large, translucent bend so you know when your sewer line is finally clean!

RV Tire Safety

Are Your RV Tires Safe? Here Are Five Ways to Identify Tire Health

Here’s an understatement: the health of your RV’s tires is essential. A single flat tire can utterly derail an RV trip. And that’s BEFORE you get into the dangers and hassles of dealing with a tire blowout on a crowded highway.

While there’s always the slight risk of a freak accident, tire health is an area where a little mindfulness goes a long way. By taking a few basic steps to check your tires before leaving for a trip, you can avoid dealing with any unwanted surprises along the way. 


Let’s Start With the Basics: Check Your Tire Pressure

It’s a good idea to check the pressure on ALL of your RV’s tires at least once a month. At the very least, you’ll want to do a quick pressure check the day before you leave on any new trip. 

Different RVs can come with varying recommendations for tire pressure, so it’s a good idea to confirm beforehand. This information is usually written inside your motorhome’s owner’s manual or doorjamb. As a note, the heavy-duty pressure gauge you’ll need to check RV tire pressure is different from the ones commonly used for regular cars. 


Check Your Tire’s Age

Every RV tire manufactured after the year 2000 will have an identification number you can use to check its age. To determine the age of your tires, keep an eye out for a small illuminated stamp near the outside rim. The last four digits will be the tire’s issue date. 

For example, if the number on your ties ends with 3517, you know they were made on the 35th week of 2017

While there are no standard guidelines for when you should replace tires, knowing their age helps you make informed decisions when you prepare for your next adventure. Old age on its own isn’t a warning sign, but it can make other ones significantly spookier. 


Take a Look at the Tread Bars

Tread bars are a series of small ridges inside your vehicle’s tires that can be used to measure their health. Each one is set inside a tire’s deepest grooves, and giving it a quick glance can tell you valuable information about your tires’ remaining lifespan. 

If the tread bar on a tire is worn down completely, it’s a good idea to replace that tire as soon as possible. Additionally, uneven wear on these bars can indicate a car’s alignment is off, and the tires are making uneven contact with the road. 


Use the Penny Test

If you need a more hands-on approach in checking your tire health, consider giving your tires the penny test. Simply hold a penny upside down and gently press it into the tire treads. If your tires are healthy, the top half of Abraham Lincoln’s head should be covered.

Seeing the entirety of Lincoln’s head is a reliable sign your tires have worn down and should be replaced soon.


When in Doubt, Visit the Pros

Any uncertainty about your tire health can always be directed to the professionals. It can be challenging to tell the difference between a worn-down and worn-out tire, and it’s an area where you really don’t want any unpleasant surprises on the road.
