3 Fall Camping Tips to Make the Most of the Season

Fall camping trips are here – so make the most of them in your new or used RV! Fall is my family’s favorite time of year to go camping. Cool mornings, crisp evenings, gorgeous nature hikes, and a bowlful of chili around the fire are just a few of the perks you can enjoy when camping in the fall.

Take a look at some of our fall camping tips so that you can make the seasonal shift seamlessly both in what you pack and how you get your RV ready.

Fall Camping Tips

Prep & Check

You’ll want to check over your RV to make sure everything is in working order – especially those cool-weather amenities that you might not think about checking during the summer months.

Make sure to take a look at the following:

  • Propane tanks
  • Furnace
  • Electric fireplace, if you have one
  • Tank heaters, if you have them
  • Roof for cracks or other damage
  • Tires, hitch, and brakes
  • Smoke/CO detectors

If you’re not sure what to look for on some of these, or you find some damage that needs repair, give us a call! Our RV service department can get you back on the road in no time.

Fall Camping Tips

Packing List

Fall is an amazing time of year, but the daily weather can be more unpredictable than the dog days of summer. A rainy day can’t be ruled out, either. So, make sure to pack the following so that you can stay dry and comfortable no matter the weather!

  • Rain ponchos
  • Extra socks
  • Water resistant boots
  • Extra blankets
  • Waterproof matches

Layers Upon Layers

You’ll probably experience cool mornings and evenings with warm afternoons, so packing layers is a necessity.  Even though this means packing more, you won’t regret having what you need. Pack base layers that are thin, lightweight, and comfortably hug your body while wicking moisture and sweat away. Hoodies and fleece pullovers are ideal mid-layers, and you’ll want to pack a weather-resistant jacket for an outer layer.

Depending on your level of exertion, you might be able to get away with rewearing base layers at least once, but one item you won’t want to rewear are your socks. Clean and dry socks every day are an absolute must, so pack extras (and even extras on top of extras if you plan to go hiking and your feet might get wet).
