The Ultimate RV Road Trip Gear Guide
If you were thrown into a motorhome for a 16-day road trip, what tools and gadgets would you bring? This Spring, I learned the answers to this question first-hand. How you ask? In April, me and two co-workers from weBoost embarked on an epic journey through the Rocky Mountains. Our goal: tell the stories of our cherished customers and highlight the beautiful and unique spots the Intermountain West has to offer.
We visited 12 different cities, including Moab, Jackson Hole, and Telluride, Colorado. In between producing the weBoost Connecting America Tour YouTube series, we were also expected to get our day-to-day “office” work done. We quickly discovered which gear and technology were most helpful for us to work from the road and document our adventures.
Whether you’re traveling in an RV or roughing it out of an overlanding vehicle, this is the tech gear we’d recommend bringing with you.
weBoost Cell Signal BoosterweBoost makes devices that take existing weak cell signal, amplify the signal, and broadcasts it wherever you need a boost - whether that’s in your truck, RV, home or office. What makes these products special is that they are carrier-agnostic, which means they will improve your signal no matter if you are on Verizon and your friend uses AT&T. We brought several weBoost products with us on the Connecting America Tour, and in those weak-signal areas where the Cradlepoint struggled, our booster filled the gap between us not being able to access the internet at all, to be able to run business as normal (only from the RV instead of a traditional office desk).
Here’s a quick summary of the products we used and in what scenarios you can use them.
- Drive 4G-X - the 4G-X is a stable in the weBoost vehicle product line and is great if you’re wanting to improve signal for multiple devices simultaneously.
- Drive Sleek - at only $199.99, this cradle booster is perfect for one device and packs a punch.
- Connect RV 65 - this is our most powerful RV booster and is perfect for stationary RV camping.
- Drive 4G-X RV - weBoost’s most popular RV product, and can be used while you’re parked OR while the RV is in motion.

Upon reflecting back on the 2 ½ week road trip, I’m very pleased at how smoothly everything went. These tools definitely helped us have an enjoyable and productive road trip. By planning ahead and preparing yourself with the gear you need, your chances for an incident-free outdoor adventure increase dramatically.
