2015’s “Five Must Haves” on Your Camper’s Christmas List!
Camping is not like it used to be. A “Camper” would pack a few items of clothing, a tent and tarp, sleeping bag, a couple of cans of food, a mug, a bowl, some cutlery, an axe, a lantern and go. Not today – that’s why I think this year’s “must haves” will depend on your camping experience. Maybe they should be categorized by their needs: “Roughing it” “Experienced” “Executive” “Really” and “Why”? And not in that particular order – you decide!
Poler The Napsack Sleeping Bag is a wearable sleeping bag, or is it just a really oversized sleep-able puffy jacket. Either way, it’s warm, cozy, and functional. The Poler Nap Sack features zippered arm holes, a chest pocket with headphone cable port and a cinchable open bottom so you can stick your feet out the bottom and hang out around the campfire. Then close it up and crash without ever leaving the comfort and warmth of your bag. Size M fits up to 5’7″, size L fits up to 6’3″, rated to approximately 50 degrees Fahrenheit so it makes this a great must have for summer camping and RVing.
Playaboule glowing bocce balls are fun for the whole family and these light-up bocce balls are extremely popular in campsites. They are made of a high quality, durable resin, and are translucent, so the LED light can shine through making the balls flash and glow in the dark. Simply rotate the screw-cap to turn the light on/off to activate your light-up bocce ball set. The balls have a 1 year warranty against breakage, but not roughing up from campground play.

Whether you are camping in a tent or having a family or friend over for the night, you will know everyone will be comfortable. When space is at a premium the Cam-O-Bunk is exactly what your need, giving you a supportive and comfortable sleep – wherever your adventures may take you. The ready-to-go bunkable cot – with its patented lock-in disc system – makes for an easy, one person assembly that is not only tool-free, screw-free and bolt-free, but only takes a few minutes to set up with an easy to follow step by step assembly instruction. Unlike traditional cots this one doesn’t have a mid bar, so you get a good night’s sleep. This bunk is durable, flexible and can hold up to 500lbs. Also included are two handy coordinating side organizers which connect easily to the sleeping deck using the simple hook and loop system. The organizers include a number of zippered sleeves and pockets to accommodate water bottles, reading and writing materials, a flashlight, keys, an electronic device and any other items you may need. A longer sleeve is also provided to accommodate items like a fishing rod. More details.
The hammock chair from Amazon will leave you feeling free to relax after a long drive. The design comes with a trailer hitch stand and two chairs innovated to be used during outdoor adventures and activities. The chairs are easily mounted onto the back of any truck or RV creating a simple living room — right there on your vehicle. There are many instances when you were wishing you had a comfier spot in order to relax right near your truck. The hammock chairs allow you to fish in your favorite spot, be comfy at the drive-in, hang out at the campground. The hammock chairs allow adventurers to sit comfortably on the go with ease.

With the Camper’s Kitchen, (available at Cabelas), camp cooking takes on a whole new meaning. This kitchen is easy to assemble and best of all it packs into its own 42″ x 26″ x 14″ nylon carry bag, and is compact enough to stow it away and bring to the campsite! The strong tubular aluminum frame offers quick, easy setup and takedown without sacrificing strength. Three oversized tabletops create plenty of stable, level space for preparing meals and organizing dinnerware. The center tabletop effortlessly removes to expose a PVC sink with drain, so washing pots, pans and utensils after the meal no longer requires hauling them streamside or to the nearest water faucet. Weather-resistant, removable hanging pantries with zippered front openings are ideal for storing everything from paper plates to tableware to canned goods or dry ingredients. Plus, each has sturdy carry handles, dual, overhead lantern hangers and a folding spice shelf complete with S-hooks. The dimensions are 87.5″L x 23″W x 81.25″H (35″H to top of center table). Won’t you be the talk of the campground with this beauty? More details.
