Motorhome Equipment & Supplies for First-Time Campers (Part 2)


Are you really camping if you don’t make s’mores around the fire or play old-fashioned board games together as a family? Make fun the priority with our list of required entertainment campsite supplies:

  • Marshmallows, chocolate bars, graham crackers, and roasting camp forks
  • Firewood and matches
  • Board games and card games
  • Yard games
  • Camping chairs
  • Blankets and jackets


We include these supplies with each RV rental if you rent a motorhome from Amazing Accommodations. Otherwise, the equipment and items listed here are essential for a safe and stress-free camping trip:

  • Drinking water hose
  • Sewer kit
  • Tire pressure gauge
  • RV surge protector or power system
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Engine fluids like washer fluid, coolant, and engine oil
  • Jumper cables or battery jump pack


Alaska is one of the most boondocking-friendly states for camping. Private property and public property within city limits are typically not allowed. Still, you can dry camp in several locations, such as rest areas, scenic turnouts, and on the side of most roads. Pack the items below to make the most of boondocking in Alaska:

  • Your favorite map app and a paper or printed one (in case of spotty cell service)
  • Solar-powered lighting
  • Solar-powered charging equipment
  • Backup generator
  • Butane or propane heater
  • Gas grill or camp stove
  • Emergency survival kit
