In this weekly roundup, Togo RV shares the top stories and features that are impacting and shaping the RV community. We cover everything from news and travel updates to gear and gadgets, and all the good stuff in between.
Stow-and-Go Outdoor Gear for Your RV
Storage space and weight allowance can be sparse in RVs, which makes it difficult to take along bulky outdoor gear. However, gear brands are rising to the challenge and creating collapsible and stowable gear, making it possible to bring your favorite toys on the road. You’ll find items like Intex’s Explorer K2 inflatable kayak, Bike Friday’s folding bikes, Primus’ Kamoto portable fire pit, and even a travel-sized guitar on the market. Find these and more recommendations in Togo RV’s roundup of portable outdoor gear for RVers.

Togo RV’s guide to half-ton towable trailers explains the terms and specs you need to know to properly pair a truck and travel trailer. The roundup includes seven rig recs, including a modern truck camper, cozy trailers for two, and family-friendly floor plans that range from 7,400 pounds to 10,500 pounds fully loaded.
