Oh! Don’t you dread packing your RV for a weekend trip?! We pull the RV up to our sticks and bricks home, typically the night before we leave, and load it up with everything we took out of the camper and then load a bunch more stuff about 15 minutes before we take off. We always take way too much stuff (because it is 3 of us in a 38′ trailer – we have the room) and dread the unload. That’s why we put together a super easy, PRINTABLE Weekend RV Packing List! We can’t wait for you to use it and let us know how you like it!
Choosing the perfect campground can be a daunting task, especially as RV’ing and camping becomes more and more popular. Our options for camping used to be state and municipal parks, with the exception of a private campground here and there. Today, we still have our state and municipal campgrounds, but private campgrounds have morphed into RV Campgrounds, RV Resorts, rig-specific campgrounds and campgrounds dedicated solely to our children and even our pets!
When it comes to camping, we all enjoy camping a little differently – and that’s ok!

No matter your camping style, use our simple suggestions for the best parks or resorts to make the best of your next camping trip!
Before the “Artic Blast” that has swept the South this month, we had the opportunity to spend several days at the Stone Mountain Park Campground with our travel trailer. It was a bit of a staycation and a quick trip as it is about a 45 minute drive from our home – a jaunt that isn’t overwhelming and proves to be quite comfortable as we are highly familiar with the area and can get around quite easily. The Stone Mountain Park Campground (and the park for that matter) is located in Stone Mountain, GA, about 30 minutes from downtown Atlanta and 1.5 hours from Athens which is a great stopping point for those visiting in and around Georgia. If you haven’t been to Stone Mountain before, it’s a must-see for anyone with a remote interest in history and/or the outdoors.

Hm… RV Toilet Paper. Some may say it’s not so glamorous, is it?! (Ok… ok… most would say that!) However, it’s a necessary evil in the RVing world and we are here to tell you why!
I’ve read on multiple forums of these people that haven’t used RV toilet paper for 8 years and never had a problem. Well, what about the people that have?! When it comes to anything that may hinder my comfort, especially in the smells department in our travel trailer, I would rather be safe than sorry!
