As we get ready to turn the corner on the new year, you’re probably already dreaming of vacations in your new or used RV. And we don’t blame you! Now is the best time to get started on travel plans – so here are some RV tips for planning your camping trip.
Mind the Weather
Camping in the south is way different during the fall than it is during the summer – and camping up north is pretty different in the spring than it is the winter! Be mindful of how the seasons shift, especially when picking long distance destinations. You’ll likely enjoy a more consistent forecast during the summer than in the spring or fall, but one perk of traveling outside of summer is generally decreased tourist traffic.
Location is Everything
Great campgrounds don’t happen by accident – nor do you typically find them that way. Quality campgrounds absolutely earn their good reputation and the evidence is campers who make return trips. What does this mean for you? It means that the best campgrounds can fill up well in advance, so make your reservations early to guarantee your spot (and maybe even the specific campsite you want!).
Make a List
Keep a seasonally specific camping trip checklist so you don’t have to pack every single item or piece of camping gear! Mosquito nets will be a must-have list on your summer list, but you probably won’t need them in the fall. Camping blankets and cool weather layers can be left at home in the summer. When you plan your camping trip in advance, you can take stock of what you really need to bring with you and what can be safely left behind.
Enjoy More Opportunities
When you plan your camping trip in advance, you have a lot more opportunities and freedom to enjoy the activities and outings. Many attractions either require reservations in advance or sell only limited admission. If you plan in advance and purchase tickets in advance, it gives you more flexibility to enjoy spontaneous adventures in the “off” hours.
Scheduling RV Service
Finally, having vacation dates on the calendar can be a good reminder to get your routine RV maintenance squared away as well. Our RV service department is ready to help, so contact us today!

Are you traveling for the holidays? Whether you’re in your new or used RV or piled up in the family car, try out these top games for road trips that your kids will love – and will keep them occupied for hours!
Without question, My Cows is my children’s favorite travel game to play. If you like a bit of friendly competition and family interaction, start counting livestock. Here’s how to play!
Whenever you see a cow – or two, or a few, or even hundreds of cows in a field – say, “My cows!” Whoever says it first gets one cow added to their point total. Whether it’s one cow or one thousand cows, it counts as one point if they’re in a single sighting.
Shout “Marry my cows!” if you pass a church. Your running point total of cows doubles instantly.
Shout “Bury your cows!” if you see a cemetery. Then, you inherit the full number of cows of another player of your choice. Here’s where it gets dicey and strategic, because revenge is stone cold – and you should consider whether you’re picking in retribution for your own cows being formerly buried by someone else, or because the person whose cows you just buried simply had the highest number. Your own strategies will develop quickly.
The License Plate Game
You probably grew up playing this yourself, and it’s stayed a classic road trip game for a reason! There are a couple of common variations, including the following:
On a piece of paper, write out all 50 states. As you pass license plates, mark off the ones you see (first one to identify the state claims it and no one else can mark it off their paper). First to get all 50 – or the highest number, anyway – wins!
Alternately, write out the full alphabet on the paper. As your kids see the letters on license plates, mark off the corresponding alphabet letters on the paper. First one to mark off all 26 letters wins!
This is an easily-packable and compact game you can take with you in the car! It’s great for kids (and adults!) of all ages, and can take up quite a bit of your attention, testing your powers of observation. Get it here or through your favorite retailer.
Stack the States
This is a super-fun learning app your kids will love! Learn about the U.S. geography through interactive displays – a great way to sneak learning into play! Plus, the fun map challenges help test what they’ve learned. Find it in your app store.
What are some of your favorite road trip games? With the holidays quickly approaching, these are some fantastic options to keep on hand once you hitch up your new or used RV and hit the road. Contact us today – we can help make sure your RV is road ready so you can focus on other things…like packing. And marrying your cows.

Nothing heralds the arrival of summer like grilling burgers on your first camping trip of the season – and nothing bids summer “seeya til next year!” like – you guessed it – burgers on the grill. Here’s an easy and delicious Labor Day camping recipe that will finish up your summer season on a high note.
Smoky Gouda Burgers
makes four burgers
1 pound ground beef, divided into 4 equal portions (I recommend an 85/15% blend)
4 slices smoked Gouda cheese
Sesame seed buns
Bread & butter pickle chips
½ cup French fried onions
2 Tbs butter, optional
1 Tbs olive oil, optional
Salt & pepper to taste
Whatever you want on your burgers – try this yummy and delicious sauce you can make at home.
Tools you’ll need:
Let’s get grilling!
First things first: zap the French fried onions in the microwave on a paper plate with a paper towel for about 15 seconds. They’ll get hot and crispy! Set aside.
Divide the ground beef into four equal portions and roll into balls. Smash with your hands or a spatula, nice and thin. Season with salt and pepper.
Get your grill rip roaring hot – or your iron skillet! If using your skillet, throw a bit of butter and olive oil in the pan.
Grill burgers until desired doneness is achieved, flipping occasionally to cook evenly. 155-160 degrees will get you to well done.
Just before removing burgers from heat, top with slices of cheese.
Layer up the burgers on buns with bread & butter pickles and French fried onions, as well as any other toppings of your choosing.
This is a tasty and easy Labor Day camping recipe you may just keep handy the rest of the year! We’re also ready to help year round with all of your RV and camping needs, so don’t hesitate to contact us today if you need help shopping for a new or used RV or need to schedule some RV service.
