Must Have Items for Off Grid Living
Off-Grid, RV Living on the Homestead
As we have begun our off-grid life, we have found several things that are almost indispensable in our home. Our home is our RV while we work on the homestead cabin, so this creates some unique needs. We live full-time on our property, but we don’t have the luxury of electrical, septic, and water hookups. Therefore, we had to figure out how to make do, until we can get fully hooked up!

What I will share will be things we have figured out in order to live in relative comfort without all of the regular luxuries of a grid-tied property. We would have been happy if we had known some of these things before we jumped right in, but that’s kind of how we roll. If there is a hard way, we usually find it!
Essentials for your Off Grid RV Life
I will begin with the essentials and then move on to what we consider “almost essential” in order to live this off-grid RV life. If you don’t happen to live in an RV on your homestead, most of these essentials will still apply.T
Nine items essential for Off-Grid RV homesteading
These are listed in no particular order, because essentials for us might score lower on your priority list. I will say that I would not like to live without any one item on this list.
- Get the best one that you can afford.
- Look for high fuel efficiency.
- Check to see how LOUD it will be while running, because you’ll likely be running it a lot.
- The bigger generators may suck more gas, so keep that in mind.
