5 Memorial Day Motorhome Must-Haves


With the year well into play, we’re quickly coming up on Memorial Day! No doubt you’re preparing your family to head out into the wild frontier for a much-needed break away from it all.

What’s that? You don’t have everything ready to go? There’s no need to panic. As the most trusted Everett RV dealers, we’ve put together a list of “must-haves” for everybody venturing out in their motorhome this upcoming holiday weekend. Follow our motorhome checklist to make sure your next trip is a success!

Memorial Day Motorhome must haves

1. The Motorhome Itself

Let’s start with the most essential component of them all, the motorhome. When putting this checklist together, we assumed many readers already had a motorhome! But if you have yet to own your first motorhome, it is used RVs for sale that you should take a look at.

As your local RV dealers, we possess an extensive inventory of used RVs, motorhomes, and RV travel trailers for sale. There’s guaranteed to be an RV that strikes a chord with you and gets you out on the open road!

Come by to say hi, or contact us to inquire about our motorhomes for sale in Everett and Bellevue.

2. Food and Drink Staples

While everybody has their own favorite must-haves for their motorhome vacations, there are a few things that you should make sure that you stock up on. And no, most of these you can’t purchase from your Everett RV dealers!

  • Tuna
  • Taco Shells
  • Ground Beef
  • PB&J
  • Dry Salami
  • Bottled water
  • Bread
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Eggs
  • Cereal
  • Cocoa
  • Tea
  • Beer (for the adults, of course)

A fully stocked kitchen is the key to making sure that you’ve got a motorhome full of happy campers. Bring any other specialty foods that you plan to cook, but this is a good staple list to make sure that nobody gets too hungry!

3. Emergency Equipment

As any local RV dealer will tell you, emergency equipment is a commonly neglected piece of the equation when people head out on their RV vacations.

Research your emergency equipment just as much as you would research motorhomes for sale in Bellevue. Here’s a good idea of what kind of essentials you ought to bring along, just in case.

  • Flashlight
  • First-aid kit
  • Extra bandages
  • Antibacterial ointment
  • Flare gun
  • Emergency phone charger

If you have these items in your inventory, there’ll never be anything to worry about in the wilderness.

4. Bonfire Equipment

There’s something so universally appealing about campfires. Perhaps it reminds us of a simpler time as human beings.

Nevertheless, wouldn’t it be great if all motorhome sales came along with some free firewood and marshmallows? Alas, these are items that are sold separately. Make sure that you bring along some firewood and s’mores gear (foods, roasting sticks) for your family. It’s a true staple of any RV vacation.

5. A Happy Mindset

Don’t ever forget why you’re leaving town for the weekend; you want to leave behind the stress associated with the regular day-to-day lifestyle. Our local RV dealers will tell you that the right outlook for your trip is the key to really being able to let go and decompress. Just relax and enjoy!

We wish you the safest of travels this Memorial Day season, and we hope you have everything that you need out there. If you’d like to get out on the open road and need an RV, it’s not too late! We have plenty of RV travel trailers for sale and motorhomes for sale in Bellevue as well as Everett. Contact us today to come check them out!
