RV Packing checklist

There is good that comes with the Atlantic winter. RV Shows. The 3 big ones this year were the Halifax RV Show, the Moncton RV Show, and the Atlantic Sports and RV Show.  There were lots of great RV’s to be seen. Something for everyone. From Hard-tops to C-Class Motorhomes. B-Class and A-Class always seem to be missing from the Halifax Shows, which is disappointing.

We had the opportunity to exhibit at the Halifax RV Show and the Sport and RV Show’s this year. Thanks to everyone that stopped by our booth, it was a pleasure to talk to everyone. We look forward to seeing you all this season. Hopefully the snow will be gone by then.

If you were able to take advantage of the great savings at these shows and purchase a new RV, Congratulations! I hope you enjoy your new RV. Now comes the task of stocking it, and making sure you don’t forget anything. Although, some would say it’s not a great camping trip unless you forget something. Oh the memories, right? I’m not sure I personally want to find out if that’s true.

These lists aren’t the end all and be all of RV Packing, but hopefully it will give you a starting point to make your own lists.
