It’s football season! From a sizzling grill and cold drinks to a fun game of corn hole, nothing beats tailgating with friends and family before the game. Are you going to be using your RV for tailgating? Make the most of game day with our favorite tailgating tips below!
Clear Out Your Storage Space
You’re not going to need your routine camping supplies while tailgating, so clear out your pass through storage to make room for what you really want. Throw in your camp chairs, a card table, and the corn hole game.
If your climate will still stay warm for another few weeks, make sure to pack a citronella candle or two to keep the bugs away. Many people like to put up 10’x10’ tents, but with the power awning on your RV, you’ll have plenty of shade!
Grab Games and Movies for the Little Ones
Several hours of outdoor play can be tiring for the kiddos, so make sure they’re well taken care of. Packing along a few of their favorite games and movies is a great idea so they can step inside the RV and relax while enjoying a snack. Make sure the bedding is fresh in case your tailgating happens over naptime.
Plan the Menu
The pantry in your RV can hold all of your dry goods like chips, but pre-assemble whatever food you can, like dips or things that can be pre-mixed before reheating. Your RV’s outdoor kitchen is perfect for throwing some burgers or hot dogs on to grill, or heating up a skillet of buffalo chicken dip.
Chill the drinks the night before and stick them in your RV’s fridge on game day. Whatever you plan to eat while tailgating, consider divvying it up between your buddies. Make it a bring your own meat event and have the grill hot and ready when everyone shows up.
