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. 

Spring is officially here! While the snow in our neck of the woods may still take about a month to melt off, the days of tank tops and shorts aren’t far away and camping is just around the corner! Whether you’ve got some extra winter pounds to lose or just want to stay in shape, don’t let camping vacations throw a wrench in your workout plans. Keep reading to see how easy it can be to ensure you get in your workouts even when you’re on the go camping this season.

Spring is the time Northwest RVers begin preparing their RVs for the upcoming camping season.

Part of your spring preparation check list should also include inspecting the seals and sealants on your RV to prevent water intrusion. Note: Some RV manufacturers will void your warranty if you fail to inspect and maintain the seals on your RV.

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.

Are you planning an RV excursion out and about in the Pacific Northwest this spring or summer? If your travels will take you up the west side of Willamette Pass via Oregon’s Highway 58, Office Covered Bridge and Salt Creek Falls are two small detours off the highway worth making.

Traveling east from Interstate 5, about 40 miles southeast of Eugene, your first stop will be the picturesque Office Covered Bridge. At 180 feet, it is the longest covered bridge remaining in Oregon. It was built in 1944 by the Westfir Lumber Company using triple Howe truss construction to supply the strength required to carry heavy logging trucks. The bridge was built to connect the lumber mill with the office (hence the name of the bridge).

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.
