Take the Office on the Road with ‘WFH’ RV Upgrades
In 2018, more than 4 million people in the U.S. considered themselves digital nomads. This number is likely much higher in 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the workspace out of the company office. With this shift, RV manufacturers are seeking ways to accommodate the specific needs of digital nomads, like office furniture and separate workspaces. Airstream is adding convertible desks to existing floor plans in some Flying Cloud models, and other manufacturers are not far behind. Not all changes involve a major redesign—consumers can expect to find more WiFi boosters and similar amenities added to existing floor plans.

The Quintessential Fall Campground Treat Everyone Will Love
Fall is an ideal time to use a dutch oven at the campground. Let the campfire warm you up as you prepare this dutch oven apple cobbler. You can make part of this recipe ahead by assembling the dry ingredients. Then, at the campground, slice the apples and top with cinnamon and sugar. Cut the dry ingredients with butter to create a crumbly cobbler topping. Top the apples with the dough, add to the dutch oven, and wait for the magic to happen. This recipe cooks for 30 to 40 minutes with seven coals below the dutch oven and 14 on top. When it’s done, you’ll find warm, gooey apples topped with a golden, buttery crumb crust.

Get Ready for Chilly Nights with Plush, Cozy Throws
Camp Casual was initially known for its kitchen wares featuring retro RV designs. When the company crossed over into making blankets, it brought the same fun vintage prints to many of the styles. The 50-inch by 60-inch Cozy Critters (available in gray or tan), Road Trip, or Travel Map blankets feature colorful prints on one side and velvety neutral fabrics on the reverse. The new Buffalo Plaid offers an iconic red-and-black color scheme. For supreme comfort, the 60-inch by 72-inch Sequoia Plush Throw is covered in faux chinchilla fur and described as Camp Casual’s coziest blanket.

How to Make Sure You’re Registered to Vote When on the Road
How do you vote in your home state if you’re spending Election Day on the road? And what even counts as your home state if you’re traveling full-time? As an RVer, you will most likely need to use your legal address (what’s on your driver’s license) to request an absentee ballot or take advantage of mail-in voting if your state offers it. To do so, call your local jurisdiction or governmental offices. You can also use a website like vote.org to find out everything you need to know about absentee ballots and mail-in voting for your state. Keep in mind that state deadlines to request these types of ballots are approaching, so check your status and request your ballot as soon as possible.
