Summer is quickly passing and the weather is taking a turn for the cooler. However, the camping season is still in full swing and the time for autumn RVing has come! If you are a first-timer for camping in the fall or have never seen the need to vary your camping preparations based on the season, you might be missing out on some great tips and tricks for how to make your fall RVing schedule the vacation of the year! We have compiled a great list of things you should consider packing along as the leaves change color to make the most of this autumn!
Hot Beverages with Accessories
Ice cold lemonade and sweet tea might be good for the summer heat, but when the winds turn chilly and you are getting closer to the fire, you might find that those frosty drinks just aren’t cutting it. Cider, hot tea, hot chocolate; these things can really make your autumn getaway feel like home! Make sure you bring your favorite types, as well as the proper items with which to brew them.
This may seem self-evident, but you need to bring the proper clothing for the chilly months of RVing, or you will find yourself wasting away under a blanket in the camper. If you want to get into the outdoors, you may need extra socks, jackets, coats, hats, and anything else to keep your temperature perfect and comfortable.
Many bugs die out during cooler weather. However, there are others that get even more active during those cooler months. Some types of mosquitos are just waiting for the weather to turn to fall to make their move. Make sure that you bring some spray, even though the fall colors are on.
In the fall, it can become more and more difficult to find dry firewood. You don’t want to be sitting around the firepit late into the evening still trying to get something going. Make sure you have firewood that is bone-dry and can compete with the cooler weather.
Making the most of your fall camping trip is easy! Sure, there may be a few things you have to take into consideration that will be different from your summer RV trips, but it is all about keeping you happy and comfortable while on the road or in the campground!
