To save on space, it is better to pack items you can layer. For example, a parka takes up a lot of space and it is an item you can’t use all the time. Make sure when you pack for layers that each item you take with you is something that can have multiple uses. Taking a tank top, short sleeve shirt, a long sleeve shirt and a windbreaker as well as a shawl will give you just as much warmth as a coat, but each item can be used more often.
Fill up Propane
If you are a well-seasoned RVer, you know propane is an important fuel for your RV because it has many important uses. It may maintain your refrigerator, provide heat for your rig and be the primary tool for cooking. You may want to have more than one tank. A back-up is good because knowing how much you have left is a little tricky for new RVers. In addition, if bad weather is encountered, getting access to propane may be difficult or hard to find.
Campfires are Your Friend
I heard some complain about campfire smoke. I understand it is not an option for all RVers. But, if you are wanting to extend your camping season, having a campfire helps. In the summer you can cook meals from a campfire instead of heating up the inside of your rig. In the winter a campfire can provide a little warmth without using up propane. If you are in a difficult climate, you may want to consider adding a campfire as a feature you search for in campgrounds or for boondocking.
