The Best Coolers for the Campground
Even though your RV likely has a fridge, you may want to take along a cooler for easy access to drinks at the campground and on the road. If you need a good day trip option at a bargain price, check out the Igloo Playmate series. Soft coolers like the RTIC Soft Pack may come at a premium price, but you’ll appreciate its light weight and ability to keep ice cool for hours on end. For the ultimate road trip cooler, take a look at the Pelican 20QT Elite. Read more about these and find recommendations for classic campground coolers, backpack options, and a “party on wheels” on Togo RV.Read the story
How to Keep Your RV Cool in Summer
Finding relief from the summer heat in your RV is a matter of managing expectations, doing proper maintenance, and following expert tips. First, learn about your system to understand its power and the amount of electrical amperage you need to operate it. Next, clean the filters regularly and visually inspect your A/C unit for damage. Park in the shade and use your awning for extra sun relief whenever possible. You may also want to consider purchasing gear to help improve your A/C’s performance, like these items recommended by Togo RV.Read the story
More Than 53,000 New Campsites Will Be Built in the U.S. in 2021
According to the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, as many as 53,000 campsites will be built this year, as new parks are constructed and existing parks are expanded or redeveloped. This news should be welcomed by RVers who might have encountered trouble booking spots this summer as interest in camping and the outdoors surges. Parks that aren’t adding sites may be focused on adding amenities, like upgraded WiFi, online reservation systems, and contactless payment options. If you’re still having trouble booking a campground, consider less popular destinations or be flexible with your dates.
