Northwest RVing 

The Northwest RVing Blog site is hosted by MHRV (Manufactured Housing and Recreational Vehicle) Show Association. Each year, MHRV presents three 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. 

youtubeRV Travel is expected to be the preferred method of travel this summer as many remain wary of getting on an airplane, train or a cruise ship and with the thoughts of being packed tightly in with total strangers, not sure if everybody is going to be wearing a mask, and never quite sure if somebody is unknowingly carrying the virus make for an uneasy feeling. While road trips in the family SUV might seem like an alternative, are you really comfortable staying in a hotel/motel room of unknown cleanliness or what might be lurking on surfaces in restaurants? After months of being locked in your own home do you really want to risk exposure again?

youtubeTypically, Spring is an important time of year for RV sales. The weather starts to change, people want to get outdoors and the beauty of our geography is always a lure for the ability to go where you want, when you want. But the recent COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted that in the Pacific Northwest. If you were one of those who planned on purchasing or were considering an RV purchase in Spring of 2020, things are definitely different.

youtubeNo use trying to dodge the elephant in the room. We’re in some strange times these days. Quarantined at home for over a month. Facebook is flooded with overwhelmed parents trying to entertain their children at home. Never you fear. Today I’m back with part 2 (Part 1 can be found here) of my rainy day (or quarantined day) activities for kids- all RV friendly of course. So put these ideas to use today or tuck them away for that next cherished trip with your RV when we’re free from quarantine.
