BEST RV ESSENTIALS

Most places in Borrego springs are accessible by a Recreational Vehicle, and visiting those places requires thorough preparation. Here, we have listed the appliances and equipment essential in traversing to a remote area where amenities are not available. 

RV GPS– There are hard to find areas, so to avoid being lost and save time and effort on finding your chosen campsite, we recommend buying the best GPS available at any store in your area. 

RV Air conditioner– Traveling in a desert, especially during the summer season, may cause you discomfort. We suggest choosing the best air conditioner that suits your camper to have a fresh and cold trip.

RV Humidifier- To escape the humidity of a desert, especially during your summer camp trip in hot places,  we recommend choosing the best Humidifier.

RV Toilet Paper– Some sites in BXS do not have toilets, and since you have inside your RV, we suggest choosing the Best Toilet Paper that is suitable for your camper to avoid dealing with a clogged waste system.

Rv Sofa Bed- To experience the comfort of your homes while you are in between your travels, We recommend buying the Best sofa bed and Mattress for your camper. 

Despite lacking in amenities on most campsites, Borrego Spring would still give you the best experience that would make you want to come back. 

However, Borrego Spring lodging requires a lot of preparations and thorough planning. Remember that you must learn the nature of a desert and know that the weather here might be humid to hot, so please stay hydrated and always seek out anything that provides shades like ramadas. 

We hope that we could help you plan your trip to Borrego Springs Campground through this article.
