Who travels in their RV with binoculars? Share what you carry for taking in the views when camping. Prior to my winter trip I picked up a Carson 3D compact binocular and have really enjoyed it.

I have a much larger one my father gave me more for stargazing. This one is something much easier to carry around.

We carry a 40-year-old pair of 8X30 compact binoculars (don't remember the brand off hand) and a pair of 10X50s (Tasco IIRC) with built-in compass.

I Cary my 35 years old Stainer Commander with built in compass from my sailing days. It is too big, but reminds me of the Glory Days😂

What are you guys looking at?
You never know when you may want them. Something going on in the distance. When I was at Angel Fire there was a strange object in the sky @ARD and I saw. I pulled out the binocs and we realized it was a high altitude balloon. Very cool. You may be looking at wildlife in Yellowstone but I've learned from @ARD that many use spotting scopes for that. I just like having a nice but compact pair of binocs available should I be curious about something in the distance. It was also useful at the Oshkosh Airshow where we were suggested to bring some and I think that's what made me buy mine.

Hmmmm! I do have a pair. Used to take when hiking sometimes. I will have to bring it along next time. Thanks for the suggestion.

One never knows what we might see!;)
Have an older pair of Bushnell's 10x50.
Works great for watching wildlife, etc.
