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. 

Learning Opportunities

Since knowledge is the key to success, be sure to attend the RV show in your area with the most learning opportunities. In the Pacific Northwest, that show would be the 56th annual Seattle RV Show on February 7th-10th at CenturyLink Field Event Center. The Seattle RV Show provides the largest variety of RVs and dealers under one roof. Variety matters when you are trying to decide which type of RV is right for you.

KM Resorts

Editor's Note - One of the options for RV campers is to join a private rv resort membership. This guest article highlighting the fun things to do with winter camping is from KM Resorts who has 8 locations in Washington State along with low-cost access to over 1,000 RV resorts across the country.

There are many reasons that winter camping is just as adventurous as camping in the summer, maybe more! The crisp, cold mornings with your toasty camper’s coffee. The time inside put to use with games, crafts and movies. The food and drink of this season will warm you from the inside out. Watching the greenery come and go under Washington’s light blankets of snow. Soft socks and flannel!

Walking in Millersylvania State Park

We’ve officially reached the end of our RV season this year. With snow covering the ground at home and temperatures reaching below 20 degrees, our trailer is winterized until next season. For our final trip of the season we turned Thanksgiving week into vacation week. With two family gatherings bringing us 2 and 3 hours away from home, we figured it was in our best interest to break up the drive and stay close by in our trailer to avoid bouncing back and forth between gatherings. Finding places to stay in late November didn’t leave us tons of options, but with some searching we found great locations that were both convenient and enjoyable.

Wenatchee Confluence State Park

Camping is not on the mind of most RVers this time of year, but it really is the best time to start planning your RV excursions for next spring and summer as the choice campsites are likely to get booked early in the New Year.

One great option for an RV getaway is Wenatchee Confluence State Park.

Freezing Weather Camping Tips

Itching for an RV getaway, but freezing temperatures and/or snow keeping you at home in front of the fireplace? Maybe you will be traveling to friends and/or family east of the Cascades for Christmas and would like to take the RV to stay in, but are concerned about the weather. Don’t let extended freezing temperatures keep you from RVing this winter.

The first thing you need to ask yourself is, “Is my RV designed for winter use?”

Many manufacturers build what they call a “4 Season RV” or will offer an “arctic package”. While there is no industry standard defining either of these terms, they typically will include some or all of the following:
