Whether you’re a tea or coffee drinker, you have to keep a few camping mugs around so that your favorite morning or evening beverage stays hot. Growing up, we were lucky to head out on at least one family RV trip every summer. I remember snickering at my father’s mug choice every morning as he filled it to the brim with coffee before we took our dog for a morning walk.
Well, it appears that things have come full circle, as I now find myself living full-time in my own RV with my partner and our dog. One of those mugs, which I always thought were a bit nerdy and dated back in the day, is now part of my daily routine. Without it, I’d be drinking cold coffee before I even made it halfway around the block. But not all mugs are created equal. That’s why we’re going to be using this article to detail some of the best camping mugs to keep in your RV.
If you want to throw it back every time you open your cupboard, check out the timeless Retro Camping Mug. This acrylic mug will stand up to being dropped on your RV pad or falling out of the cabinet if you take a turn a little too tight on your way to your next destination. It’s both dishwasher and microwave safe and you won’t even need a coaster to keep it from leaving rings on your dining room table.
‘Life is Better at the Campsite’
When you spend the majority of your days running back and forth from home to the office, you probably cherish the times when you get away from your normal schedule and roll your RV to a new campsite. This ceramic camping mug will remind you of how great life really is at the campsite. Even though it’s ceramic, it’s still dishwasher and microwave safe. And when you’re not camping, feel free to bring this mug inside to remind you that, if you haven’t started planning your next camping trip, there’s no time like the present!
‘Paws and Relax’
We always loved traveling with our dog on RV trips. It’s one of the major reasons why our summer vacations were RV-based instead of flying to destinations and having to leave our furry friends behind. Even if you can’t always bring your favorite pup along, you can always be reminded of him or her with this sturdy 15-ounce ceramic mug. It’s great for any beverage (hot or cold) and will help you remember to ‘Paws and Relax’ once you reach your destination.
‘Bird’s Eye View’
Camping always seems to help me zoom out and see new perspectives. Whether it’s a new standpoint on where we’re at in life or just learning about a new destination, the ‘Bird’s Eye View’ camping mug will remind you to stop, sip, and enjoy. Keep your tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or other preferred beverage nice and toasty in this perspective-offering ceramic camping mug.
‘Let’s Go Camping’
If ceramic mugs make you a bit nervous, you can always opt for an acrylic model that stands up to the rigors of off-grid RV camping. The ‘Let’s Go Camping’ mug is super-durable and insulated to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. This basically unbreakable mug will remind you to get out and find a new place to park your RV at every opportunity you get. Best of all, this mug won’t sweat to leave rings on your windowsills or kitchen table, so you won’t need any extra coasters to go along with it.

As an alternative to the trusted Stanley travel mug, this 15-ounce travel mug from Perma Chill is also another insulated camping mug option for keeping your hot drinks hot and cold beverages from heating up.
