RVing isn’t typically associated with the fall season, but the truth is you can enjoy your RV throughout the fall season. Oftentimes those who start RVing in the fall do it year after year because the season brings a welcome change from summer RVing, along with many benefits you don’t think of. So, how can you make the most out of the fall RV season?
Pack For Cooler Temps
Being prepared for wacky fall weather is an important part of enjoying RVing in the fall. Day time temperatures can be warmer, while evenings are cool. It’s integral to have the clothing needed to feel comfortable, so you can be out and about enjoying activities. Because it tends to rain a lot during the fall don’t forget to pack rain boots and a poncho.
Plan For Rain
Unless you’re vacationing in the desert, you’re bound to encounter rain when RVing during the fall. Do some research to get an idea of any indoor activities you can look to as a backup plan in case it does rain. Museums, local shops, and eateries are all a great way to spend your time inside, while still making memories. Of course, if you’re just looking to relax turn on your RV’s entertainment system and watch a movie with your spouse or play a game with the kids. Having a plan will ease hours of boredom.
Perhaps one of the most delightful parts of the fall season is the food we tend to enjoy. It’s always comforting and warming and deliciously full of calories. Take the time to bake up an apple pie made from apples at a local orchard, create a delicious beef stew, or toast pumpkin seeds that come from a pumpkin you picked at the local pumpkin patch.
Many campgrounds provide discounted rates during their low season. Call a few campgrounds in the area you’re headed to to compare prices. It’s also important to ask if any construction or work is being done, as this is the time when updates and maintenance is typically done.
