The phrase, “April showers bring may flowers,” may not seem so attractive when you’re trying to enjoy the springtime in your RV, but the rainy days don’t have to ruin your trip. Prepare for those rainy days spent inside your RV with these simple ideas that will make you forget about the weather.
Pack a Rainy Day Survival Kit
A rainy day survival kit is easy to put together and will save everyone from boredom just in the knick of time. Put together a box (or bag) of games, crafts and special snacks that are reserved only for rainy days. It’s important that you don’t pack the same games in this bag as the ones you play regularly, so they maintain their rainy-day appeal. Not only will your kids or guests survive the rainy days, they’ll actually be excited about them.
Research Rainy Day Activities Before You Go
With rainy days being nearly inevitable this time of year, it’s important to pick a camping site near some indoor activities. Do a little research to make sure there’s a museum, movie theater, shopping mall or similar indoor venue near your campsite.
Make Your Own Movie Theater
You’ve done all of the research, and there doesn’t seem to be a movie theater within reach of your campground, so it’s time to make your own. Plan ahead of time by bringing popcorn, movie-theater-size candy and plenty of movies on your trip. Similar to the rainy day survival kit, keep these snacks and movies separate from the ones you enjoy more regularly. Pull down the privacy shades and turn up the volume — your RV is now a cinema, and your kids will love it.
Before You Go
Before you hit the road for your spring RV travels, bring your motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel by Specialty RV for a tune-up.
