Northwest RVing 

The Northwest RVing Blog site is hosted by MHRV (Manufactured Housing and Recreational Vehicle) Show Association. Each year, MHRV presents two important trade shows in the greater Seattle area to promote and display the RV Lifestyle. We are all about RVing and hope you will enjoy the many articles posted here about RVing in general and about our upcoming shows. 

Unlike other northern states that experience sub-freezing temperatures during most of the winter, Northwest RVers with access to the coastline can enjoy winter camping compliments of the Pacific Ocean and the temperate winter weather it provides.

Here is a suggestion for a place to camp and outdoor activities to enjoy this winter:

Camping:

Washington Park in Anacortes offers a year-round campground that features 68 campsites, with 46 of those containing water and 30 amp electrical service. All campsites include a campfire ring and picnic table set in a heavily wooded conifer forest. Given the heavy tree cover, late winter sunrises and all the outdoor activities you will be enjoying in or nearby the park, sleeping in will not be a problem during your stay!

Tis the season and most of us are shedding our summer plans to put the RV in storage, but for you winter campers, we have a few warm tips below to help you through the chilly temperatures.

As first-time parents of a 7-month-old baby, my husband and I are far from being classified as seasoned parents. However, when it comes to traveling with a baby, we seem to have become seasoned quite quickly. Though we haven’t ventured on any extensive or exotic vacations with our little one, he’s already seen plenty of trips in our trailer from our tiny town to the big city to visit family and even a vacation to the ocean this summer. While I continue to love the incredible help our trailer is when traveling with a baby, through trial and error we have found some great products designed for traveling with a baby that have made our travels so much easier and more enjoyable for all of us. I’ve come up with a list of our top 10 favorite baby products to travel with.

Winter is quickly approaching and for many of you, especially those east of the Cascades, you have probably already winterized your RV and are thinking about next spring.

Winter is a good time to start planning your RV outings for 2018. For those with an adventurous side, love of mountain top vistas and an interest in mining history, consider a trip to Oregon’s Ochoco Mountains.
