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. 

RV Organized for New Baby

Mom and Dad and baby makes...4! Our family is growing this summer as we add a sweet baby girl to our family of three. Our almost 2-year old son is nearing his role as a big brother and we couldn’t be happier! This summer will be our third year with our trailer and with a growing family comes the need for growing organization. As the storage needs for our children will now be doubled in size, we took a little time to map out the space we will need to keep everything on hand and readily available.

Did you take the plunge and buy your first RV at one of the recent RV shows? Are you ready to head out on your first camping trip? If so, take a moment to review the list of the most common mistakes made by RVers (both new and seasoned). We are all bound to make mistakes from time to time, but learning via the experiences of others is far better and cheaper than committing the error yourself.

Although the weather isn’t really making you think about the outdoors right now, now is the time to be planning your RV adventures. Spending a little time early in the year will result in access to the campgrounds you want to visit AND the best spots. It's also a good idea to get prepped and be ready to go when you want, you can find a handy packing checklist here.

Some of the many places you’ll want to go are our National Parks. Gary Bunzer, the RV Doctor and Chuck Woodbury, editor of, sat down and discussed the opportunities of RVing at national parks, state parks, commercial campgrounds and public lands.

2019 Seattle RV Show

The 56th annual Seattle RV Show is coming up February 7th – 10th, 2019 at the CenturyLink Field Event Center. It is the oldest and largest indoor RV show in Washington state.

In addition to a huge selection of RVs displayed by over 20 local dealers, following are a few of the highlights you can expect at the 2019 show:

Cleaning Items

With over a foot of snow at our house and temperatures in the 30’s, camping season has been on hold for us for over a month now. After our last vacation of the season, the after-trip clean up was especially important to keep our trailer fresh and in good condition for the duration of the off season. Having a good cleaning routine after each trip can really save you time and stress, as well as keep you prepared for your next getaway.

Though each of us may have our own unique cleaning needs for our RV, I’ve put together a summary of my basic cleaning routine to help you keep your home away from home spic and span in no time. Check out my RV Cleaning Checklist printable at the end of this article!
