Don’t forget outdoor recreational furniture when you’re stocking your RV for your first trip. Many RVers spend as much time outdoors relaxing as they do inside their RV, and you’ll need comfortable and durable outdoor recreational vehicle furniture if you want to be relaxed and in style outdoors. You can find a variety of comfortable and fun styles as well as a range of colors of outdoor recreational furniture.

As you shop for outdoor recreational furniture, you’ll find that your choices aren’t just limited to plastic chairs and tables. You’ll discover outdoor recliners, folding picnic sets, adjustable height tables, grill tables, and much more. Since you spend so much time outdoors when you travel in your RV, it pays to shop for the most comfortable and versatile outdoor recreational vehicle furniture you can find.

RV Replacement Furniture

If you’re searching for RV replacement furniture, you may be able to find surplus furniture online, or you might find it at local dealers who are closing out discontinued lines or old RV parts and replacements. Some RV furniture manufacturers put their surplus furniture online at deeply discounted prices, so you can save quite a bit of money if you shop around.

When you purchase RV replacement furniture, check with the seller to find out if the purchase price includes installation of the new RV replacement furniture and removal of the old furniture. If you’re purchasing a big piece of RV replacement furniture, such as a mattress or sofa, take time beforehand to make measurements to make sure it will fit in the door of your RV. Many items of RV replacement furniture are so large that you have to take out a window or the windshield in order to get them inside the RV.

RV Ice Fish Houses

Ice fishing is a growing sport among winter camping enthusiasts. Many all season parks and resorts offer luxurious amenities for ice fishing. They offer great discounts on cabin rentals and are shelling out the big bucks on the best of the best in equipment for all your ice fishing needs…at a cost.

Our question to you is why spend the money to rent a cabin when you can turn your own travel trailer into your very own ice house cabin!

Almost any travel trailer can be turned into an ice house just by visiting the right service department at your favorite RV dealership. You just need a couple holes cut into the floor of the trailer with the proper seal and cover for when not in use. Make sure you stock up on extra propane heaters, stoves, and portable toilets if yours doesn’t have one already.

Keeping Your Furry RV Mates Cool

Feb-Pets

Hot temperatures can be far more dangerous for your pets than they can for you, so it’s important to keep them cool when you start to feel the heat. Ensure your pets are as comfortable as you with these simple tips for keeping them cool.

Adjust Your Outdoor Time

If you’re used to walking your pup in the afternoon, you may need to change your schedule. Consider walking early in the morning and late at night to avoid the hottest part of the day.

Follow the Signs

Unfortunately, dogs can’t talk, but they can give you a good idea of if they’re overheating or not. If you’re out for a hike, and your dog keeps searching for water or trying to lay in the shade, it’s time to go home. These are both signs that your dog is starting to overheat.

Feel the Air for Yourself

The bottom line is that if it’s too hot outside for you, it’s too hot for your pet. If you’re going to let your pet hang out in the yard, see if you’re able to sit outside for an extended amount of time first. If you’re overheating, your dog will be too.

Use Room-Temperature Water

If you see your pet overheating, you may run for an ice pack. Instead, cool him or her down with room-temperature water and a fan. Cold water and ice packs can cause the blood vessels to constrict, making it more difficult to lose the heat.

Travel in Comfort

Keep yourself and your pets cool in the comfort of a new RV from Lewis RV Center. Stop in and see us in Oklahoma City to shop our selection of the industry’s latest and greatest RVs today.

RV Security on the Road

family-vacation-rv-travelRVing is about enjoying the RV, your friends and family, and the open road. You don’t want to worry about the negative or dwell on what can go wrong. And you shouldn’t have to. By taking some basic precautionary steps, you can help to safeguard the things that matter to you when you’re out on the road and gain some peace of mind, while still having fun.

1. Keep Your Valuables Stowed Away

While theft of your RV is a concern, oftentimes a break-in will occur simply to steal a valuable item that can be seen through the window. Whenever you leave your RV alone, take a moment to assess the items you have out that may be attractive to a burglar, such as laptop computers, tablets, jewelry, and other valuables. Stow these and similar items out of sight when you leave by placing them in bags, cases, cabinets, drawers, or even under a jacket or towel. By eliminating incentives for a break-in, your eliminate the chances that one will occur. If you have items that can be used to compromise your identity, such as passports or social security cards, consider a safe or lock box.

2. Research Your Destinations

While you’re probably already researching hours of operation, directions, prices, and RV amenities, you may want to add an additional point to your checklist: crime rate. Whether your destination is urban or rural, it’s good to know how safe an area you plan to visit is. Avoiding crime-prone areas is the best defense against burglary and break-ins. By staying to areas with low crime rates, you significantly reduce the chance of being a victim.

3. Lock Up

While it may seem like an obvious suggestion, it can be easy to overlook, especially if you’re having a good time and potential misfortune is far from your mind. Locking up is a simple precaution that you should practice regardless of how long you’ll be leaving your RV out of sight. Even if you’re just taking a short hike or heading to the nearby lake for a swim, make sure you lock up every point of access and double check to make sure it’s securely closed. Take all keys with you and don’t trust a copy of your keys to anyone you don’t know.

4. Ensure That Your RV is Equipped to Handle Fires

Not every threat comes from strangers – fire is a valid concern to any RVer and can quickly destroy your property if you have no plan in place to address it. By simply equipping your RV with fire extinguishers and smoke detectors, you can drastically reduce the risk of a fire getting out of control. Setup an inspection schedule to check that your extinguishers and smoke detectors are operational and effective.

5. Insure Your Property

If the worst comes to pass and your RV or possessions are stolen or destroyed, you’ll want to have as much as possible insured so that you can recover and get back to the life you’ve worked so hard to attain. Don’t leave your valuables out on a limb; rather, make sure they’re backed up by a reliable insurance plan.

How to Keep Kids Occupied While You’re on the Road

DOW_63137hirez-dog-rv-cu-960x640

Traveling with children is no easy task. Road trips should be fun for everyone involved, but this can sometimes be a tall order for children, especially if they’re not given a diversion. Like most other things, your best line of defense is preparation.

Snack boxes

Keep those little fingers busy with little objects and pique their curiosities with multiple items. Head to the craft store and pick up a bead organizer from the jewelry section. Personalize it with their name, and even a few decorations using a paint marker or stickers. Now, fill the compartments with small snack items like goldfish crackers, cheerios, oyster crackers, grapes – anything that will fit. The best part is there’s a lid to keep the food inside when not in use.

Art projects

Individual art projects help children focus on one task, as opposed to a giant coloring book where they can quickly lose interest. Making up individual art project packs can help divide up the trip and help them focus on one task. Fill gallon-sized plastic zipper bags with printable coloring and education sheets, pipe cleaners, homemade play dough, or any other individual small project you can think of. Don’t forget to put together one or two bags with additional supplies like markers and crayons.

Look Out of the Window Games

Let’s face it, there comes a time in every road trip when you’ve exhausted your resources and the kids are heading toward bananas. It’s time to get creative. Have them look out of the window and spot animals in the clouds, make up a story about where the car next to you is travelling, or make up a song about where you are coming from and where you are going. The more silly, the better for everyone, as nothing helps a road trip go easier than a good laugh.
