GlowStep Revolution

For years, the RV industry has needed a better entry-step option for raised trailers and pickup campers. I’ve seen seriously unstable and barely-usable steps on these types of RVs.

Closet Rods

In a past RV Gadget Box, I reviewed the basic Thermacell mosquito repellent device. I field-tested my device in Alaska and it really does the job on pesky insects, even those legendary blood-suckers up north. Thermacell recently added a camping lantern to their product line and I couldn’t wait to
