At Nohr’s RV Center, RV travel is more than a weekend getaway - it is a way of life. When the holidays approach, bring your RV in for a full-service inspection, and then set out to enjoy a holiday adventure of a lifetime. To give you an idea of what is possible, we put together some popular tips and suggestions for happy holiday celebrations in your RV.
Easing Holiday TravelAn RV will greatly simplify your holiday travel plans. In addition to providing you room for all the gifts, your RV also gives you the freedom of making multiple stops along the way. And why not pick up some seasonal favorites from their sources? Cranberries from Washington or Maine, potatoes from Idaho, a turkey from Minnesota, and cheeses from Wisconsin not only lend special meaning to the feast, they are the perfect excuse to visit some obscure places.
“Fixing” the FeastThe hardest part of a large holiday celebration in an RV is preparing the main meal. But even a Thanksgiving feast is possible with a little planning and creative cooking. Some helpful ideas include:
· Purchase your turkey based on the size of your oven. Smaller groups or couples can eliminate the big bird in favor of something like Cornish hens, or go with a differently shaped entree such as lamb.
· Pick up disposable aluminum pans for the baking. The softer aluminum will bend easily to conform to smaller ovens, and they reduce your clean-up time substantially.
· Cook desserts and side dishes ahead of time.
· Use one or more slow cookers to reduce the stove-top usage.
Making Memories on the RoadCouples or families who are traveling for the holidays may discover that the RV park they have chosen is planning a holiday function, or you can initiate your own. Invite other campers to attend, and ask the guests to bring a side dish. To really draw in the crowds, use an outdoor smoker so the aroma has the whole RV park watering at the mouth and visitors have a centralized outdoor space for mingling.
Holiday GetawaysTake a tour. See the lights. Break from the same old routine and treat your family to a special holiday season. Corn mazes and autumn festivals spring up all over the nation for Thanksgiving, and there will be stellar light displays around Christmas. Any tour of Christmas displays should include places like DeFuniak Springs, FL, and Lake Lanier’s Magical Nights of Lights in northern GA. Lake Lanier has RV camping available, and the 7-mile display is designed for vehicles to travel through while enjoying Christmas music piped over the radio.
Whatever your holiday plans may be, an RV is a great way to put them into practice, and we can help. We have an impressive selection of new and used RVs and travel trailers on site. Stop in at Nohr’s RV Center and see what we have to offer.
