However, the trick is to buy items that fellow RVers would be interested in such as dried or canned foods, stuffed animals or toys for kids, or items more specialized such as RV-related products like high-gain cellular or Wi-Fi antennas.
RV parts like water filters, light bulbs and other accessories that commonly need replacing are surefire hits. Even big items can be sold via drop shipping to maximize profits.
