RV Winter Blues

Suffering from RV Separation Anxiety? Try these tips!

If you’re a hardcore RVer, nothing feels quite like home as your RV does on the open road. Not everyone is lucky enough to be able to head down to Florida for the winter… So here you are, sitting at home, dreaming of your next RV trip, while your heart is yearning to take a trip out. What to do, what to do? 

Well, there are a few options. 

  1. If you have to leave your RV in storage, take a short day-trip or weekend trip in your car somewhere. Go somewhere new. It’s not the same as RVing, but it’s still a change of scenery.
  2. Check on your RV. Perhaps just spending a bit of time around it will help ease the winter RV separation anxiety a bit.
  3. Start stocking up on things you need to buy for your first RV trip in spring, even if it is cleaning materials for summerization, or canned foods. Perhaps consider buying new linens or kitchen gadgets for the RV. That will give you something to look forward to!
  4. Plan a flight for Family Day Weekend - the third weekend in February to a hot destination and rent an RV There (like Texas or Florida). Some of the southern destinations have amazing State Parks with RV Hookups. 


Enjoying the Outdoors Sans RV This Winter 

So just because you can’t get out and enjoy swimming, paddling or soaking up the sun on a lovely hike, does not mean that you can’t enjoy the outdoors. Here are some things you can do to keep that camping feeling alive until your first RV trip of the season: 

  • Snowmobiling
  • Fat biking
  • Birdwatching
  • Ice fishing
  • Outdoor ice skating
  • Skiing
  • Snow tubing
  • Snow shoeing
  • Building snow igloos and forts
  • Attending winter carnivals
  • Outdoor ice hockey

If all else fails, perhaps build a bonfire in the backyard, and roast a few marshmallows while you dream about your first RV trip of the new season.
