Anywho - at first glance, an rving guy who also happens to be a dad can initially present a challenge, come gift giving time, to those who live in sticks and bricks abodes. There isn't much room to buy something large, you need to know quite a bit about rv life to buy something geared toward the camper...so what is a stressed out child of a wacky rv parent to do? Have fun customizing or personalizing a gift!
The examples you are about to see are great ideas for dads, so if you like what you see already, you need to do nothing more! But no two rving dads are alike, and that's where the fun of personalized gifts comes in. Write whatever message you want in your own favorite colors, fonts and style.. Color outside of the lines all you want...it is your gift to buy - guarantee you will have more fun than dealing with crowds at a department store! We have a lot of fun ideas at our personalized store full of rv gifts, but you can always create your own, too!
RVers, especially full time ones, love to waltz around the campground in a unique, witty shirt, hat or other eye-catching item. Their audience "gets it" because they live in a camper, too! So here we go...
UNIQUE GIFTS FOR RVERS WHO ARE DADS - A BASEBALL CAP
Because I rv fulltime, I have many theories as to why dads wear baseball caps in the recreational vehicle. One thought is that it keeps the sun out of their eyes (that's the nice theory). Another idea is that they often don't shower each and every day, so it covers up the bed head and other hair issues. Finally, for those dads with little hair on top...well, you know what this cap is for!
RV GIFTS FOR DADS WHO LIKE TO BOAST A LOT
So what about rving dads with a good sense of humor, or who can't talk enough about how great rv living is? You know the type...they still scoff at their friends who haven't tried it yet, questioning why they would be tied to a home instead of living on the open road, under the stars. There are many of these types of fathers out there. If you have one of them in your life, maybe he would like a gift where he can rub other's noses in his new found freedom!
RVING DADS STILL STUCK AT THE OFFICE
Is your dad still not able to go fulltiming, so rv gifts are even more challenging? As long as you don't get him fired if he wore this present below, consider letting him remind himself at the office that one day soon he will be climbing on board that recreational vehicle, heading to destinations unknown. It's also a great conversational piece at the workplace (again, unless there is a dress code...then not so much anymore...but hey, maybe it would get him out the door and into the camper sooner rather than later!).
RV GIFT FOR KING OF THE BARBEQUE DADS
A great rv gift for dad in an apron that declares him King Of The RV. Though many rving men are awesome in the kitchen (my husband included!), some can't get enough of barbequing outdoors, now that there is time to enjoy it. A little music, an adult beverage, sun setting while awning lights get plugged in - can't you just see it? Dad grabs for that chef apron and starts grilling dinner...night after night after night. In a standard rv park, a lot of time is spent outside. People are friendly, visit, socialize - so give the rv guy something to do with all of that time! Cook!
GIFTS FOR MOTORHOME OWNERS, CLASS A OR C STYLE FATHERS
Motorhome gifts are even more exciting for rv dads, if you know the type of recreational vehicle he has. There are so many rvs out there, but common motorhomes are the Class A or Class C. So have fun with this play on words and make his present truly unique. Many people won't have a clue what it means, which dad will love, because - once again - he can talk and talk about his unconventional lifestyle!

No matter what you get, your rv dad will love it - honest. We know it is hard for people to buy for us...it is truly the thought that counts! Hopefully this article has given you the confidence to no longer fear shopping for your rv dad! Even though they can start acting a little loopy once given the freedom of the open road (I know, my husband is a fine example of this)...they are still your father underneath, promise!
