Tailgating in an RV means you have all the amenities and comforts of home. Here are a few features of an RV to use to amp up your next tailgating event.

The RV Kitchen

Pack up the coolers, utensils and condiments and start dreaming up the ultimate tailgating menu. You can grill outside or bake inside — your meal and your preparation options are nearly endless thanks to your RV’s indoor and outdoor kitchen setups.

The RV Bathroom

If you’ve tailgated before then you know how valuable having a personal RV bathroom nearby is. No more missing out on the fun while standing in line for 30 minutes at the port-a-potties. You won’t miss a minute of the action or the fun. But beware of others wanting to use your RV bathroom too. If you plan to allow it, have hand sanitizer available and a patio mat or rug so people don’t track mud, sand, or dirt on your RV flooring.

The RV as Shelter

You can bring the party inside when inclement weather crashes the parking lot party. Inside the RV, you’ll have a TV that allows you to watch other games before the big game starts. Many people even decide to the game from their RV versus buying expensive stadium tickets.

If this is the option you’re aiming for — sounds like a winner — check out our RV antennas. Camping World carries satellite antennas, local broadcast antennas, and plenty of other TV hookup essentials. Make your RV the ultimate entertainment hub.

Many people only associate tailgating with football, but RV tailgating is much more than that — it’s a lifestyle. NASCAR has quite the tailgating scene as well, especially among RV enthusiasts. With the sound of cars racing by, the smell of rubber on the pavement, and the excitement that only comes with speed and competition, it should come as no surprise that a party would be part of the environment too. As far as RV tailgating is concerned, you’re only limited by what time the event starts.
