Comfortable Camping 101 With Kirkland RV Sales

rv salesWith camping season in our near view mirror, we at Kirkland RV Sales decided to honor our faithful patrons, new and old, with a few tips to ensure you get the best camping experience possible.  Folks, the truth is it’s all about preparation and planning.  You don’t want to hop in and rush off, thinking everything will be ready for you.  You always want to be prepared for the unexpected.  Even the most minor of inconveniences can ruin your entire camping experience.  Without further ado, here are a few basic tips to help you out.


Make sure you have your spaces reserved.  Even if it has been secured, check in with local authorities to find out if there have been any damages resulting from storms.  There’s nothing worse than stopping into an area that was devastated by flooding.  Unpleasant is an understatement!

RV Inspection

     You always want to know the condition of your vehicle.  Make sure the water and sanitation systems are in working condition, check your engines and gas lines, the conditions of your wheels,  and so on so forth.  Our faithful patrons can stop in to see us here at Kirkland RV Sales and our ASA certified technicians will walk you through any maintenance and repair issues you may have.  There’s nothing worse than being stranded in the middle of nowhere.

Making Your Checklist

     Ho!  Ho!  Ho!  Think like Santa Claus and make sure you look it over a couple times.  Can you imagine if Santa took off and forgot Little Suzie’s presents?  Little Suzie would be devastated!  With that in mind, here’s an idea of what your list should consist of.

Basic Necessities

     Batteries, radios, sunscreen, prescriptions, first aid kits, rope, folding chairs, binoculars, knives, backpacks, cell phone, maps and GPS, flashlights, cameras and accessories, bug spray, lantern and fuel, bedding, extension cords, writing utensils, firewood, and tools.


     Warm and cold weather gear, sleepwear, undergarments, shoes and socks, hats, and gloves.

     Personal Hygiene

     Soap, dental products, wash cloths, towels, toilet paper, eye wear, hair care products, shaving kits, mirrors, and laundry bags.

Kitchen Necessities

     Detailed meal plans, groceries, seasonings, condiments, drinking water, cooking utensils, can opener, pots and skillet, oven mitts, food containers, ice chest and trays, camping stove or burner and fuel, charcoal, lighters, and dishwashing items.

     Pet Supplies

Food, water, treats, bowls, toys, leashes, and plastic bags for waste disposal.
This is an idea of what your list should contain.  If you plan on participating in activities on the water or fishing, make a list of everything you’ll need for them as well.  That’s Comfortable RV Camping 101 With Kirkland RV Sales, where we can get you the best deals around.
