How to Get Your RV Ready for Cold Weather



Adventures in your RV might be most common in the warm summertime months, but just because Summer is gone doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to the joys of RVing. It will take a little bit of preparation, but you really can enjoy your RV year-round. We found useful tips and videos to share with you for winterizing both the outside and the inside of your RV.

Tips for Getting Your RV Ready for Cold Weather


From windows to wheels and everything in between, there are ways to make your RV suitable and comfortable for using beyond the warm months of summer. We found several people who offered tried and true advice for keeping you and your RV adventuring throughout the year.

GonewiththeWynns.com not only offers advice for winterrizing your RV, but they shot a couple of videos to share that show them in the thick of a Colorado winter feeling cozy and warm . You can watch their video on getting the outside of your RV ready for cold weather here.  And when you’re ready to make the inside feel like home and keep the humidity levels down you can click here to watch those tips. We particularly like their money-saving tip of using snow for skirting your undercarriage.

RV Camping vs. Tent Camping



Anyone who considers themselves a camper has strong opinions about the best ways to make every aspect of the adventure happen. Probably one of the biggest arguments is whether or not RV camping is “real” camping and whether or not tent campers have the upperhand on the camping experience.

We will stay neutral because we love ALL the campers and cater to both preferences. But just for fun, we thought we’d list some of the things that make each camping style awesome for those who choose it.  

Let’s start with RV camping:

  • An RV gives you the comforts of home and the experience of the great outdoors
  • Everything you need can be at your fingertips
  • There’s room for packing enough supplies for an extended stay
  • The RV means keeping the littlest campers safe and comfortable for naps and nighttime

But then there’s Tent camping:

  • You can pitch a tent almost anywhere. Check out these great spots in CA!
  • Get totally unplugged! This is the perfect way to truly step away from the regular routine.
  • Wanna get away and not break the bank? Tent camping can be inexpensive.
  • Looking for a temporary and beautiful step outside of your comfort zone? Pack your tent and supplies and hit the road!

No matter how you choose to experience some time away, we have a camping spot waiting for you to enjoy!

Call us and reserve your spot today (559) 897-2885
