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.

Pad Thai Salad

Salads are great when you are camping. Quick to make. They can be filling and they are refreshing on a hot summer day. If you hit a farm market, you can get all the veggies fresh.

I didn’t make a note of where this recipe came from. I think it was from a raw food site. If anybody finds it, please let me know, so I can give proper credit.

20140606-184619-67579043.jpg

Veggies

Spinach
Zucchini
Carrots
Bean sprouts
Peanuts

Dressing

2 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp soy sauce
Garlic

Mix the dressing ingredients. It makes a thick paste. But once it’s mixed with the veggies it covers nicely.

If you want to get fancy, you can either spiralize or julienne the zucchini and carrots.

Which slumber hut is the best?

We get this question a lot from people who would like to visit the campground and who would like to stay in a  slumber hut. It’s hard question to answer because they each have their pros and cons. Each slumber hut is a 10 x 12 building. They are scattered throughout the campground. If you look at our location map here, they are designated with the yellow ovals. They are numbers SH4, SH14, SH41, SH42, SH43, SH51 and SH52.

Each Slumber hut has…

  • A double bed with a mattress.
  • A double sized loft with a thin foam
  • A small table
  • A minifridge
  • A microwave
  • Lights
  • Outlets
  • Outside water tap
  • Deck with picnic table
  • Firepit

They all basically look like this on the inside.

Here’s a little bit about each hut.
