We have been going camping as far back as we can remember. We’ve always looked for ways of making it easier. Especially if we can find some cool new toys and camping tools in the process to make camping a little less stressful altogether.
Now by this, we certainly don’t mean to say that we’re always looking to take the easy route. But if we can take the easy route without sacrificing or hurting the enjoyment and safety, why shouldn’t we do it?
That’s why we’ve come up with this article. To show you a few important tools that will make your life easier. Of course. Because if we can use it, then you can too. And that’s why we created this website.
To relay our thoughts and experience to you. We sincerely hope that each time you visit our website that you learn something. That’s important to us because you’re important to us!
We also want to relay some things to you that you’ll be able to take away from this and use it immediately. Even if the tools themselves seem of no obvious use to you.
Have you ever seriously sat down and thought of or looked for some smart ways of marking your camping experience a better and more simplified experience?
Simplifying the setup process and tear-down of your campsite will make your life easier in a number of ways.
One crucial thing that these important tools can do for you is to save your body from unnecessary tasks by simplifying the entire process!
#1 – A Ratchet
A ratchet is an amazing tool that really goes a long way. Especially if you’re going to use one on your RV or a vehicle in general. Man, there are more nuts and bolts than you can count on those!
From the front end where the engine is, to the rear of the vehicle where the tip of the exhaust pokes out. Your handy ratchet will be used within an enormous amount of tasks.
Here Are Some Examples Of What You Can Use Your Ratchet On
- Transmission – (A.K.A Tranny)
- Body/Body Mounts
- Vehicle Body Parts – (Grille, Bumpers, Etc.)
- Interior Parts, Plastics All Around The Vehicle
- Steering Wheel
Odds And Ends:
- Heavy-Duty Backpack(s)
The list could go on and on and on. But you get the idea. A ratchet is always needed for a multitude of tasks. Whether it be for your tent or your RV, there are too many uses for it not to add it to the list of needed tools!
#2 – Interchangeable Ratcheting Screwdriver(s)
Screwdrivers are always useful. Just like with a ratchet, there are a TON of uses for them. There are even times when screwdrivers come in handy when you’re working on your RV’s brakes.
It isn’t safe, so do this on your own accord. But you can jam a screwdriver in-between your brake calipers and rotor to stop the wheel from turning when you want to take the wheel off. As we said, we do not recommend it, but we do it sometimes just to get the job done.
Screwdrivers can be used for plenty of things such as setting up your tent, backpack, and even the gear that you wear on your head. Depending on what it is.
Screwdrivers are used to get what the ratchet can’t get… screws! And there are always screws that need to be un-screwed. So you’ll want to keep a set of these when out on your adventures.
#3 – A Rubber Mallet
Rubber mallets are very useful… and they’re a lot of fun as well. They are one of those tools that you don’t know that you need until you start keeping one around.
They’re a good and safe alternative to a traditional hammer. Rubber mallets are also used for a multitude of tasks much like the ratchet and screwdrivers.
Here are some examples of what a rubber mallet can be used for on a typical camping trip.
- Driving Chisels
- Putting up signs
- Banging a part into, or back into place
- Flattening Things
- Banging nails into place – (If you’re missing your hammer)
- Placing Tent Stakes
