Romantic RV Date Ideas & Destinations

Go Camping Together.

What could be more romantic than cuddling up under a sky full of stars near a warm campfire with the one you love? That’s right, pretty much nothing. This Valentines Day skip the flowers & chocolates (or don’t if it’s not in your best interest) and go camping together. RVing as a couple is living the full definition of quality time. Whether it’s working together to get your RV to the next destination without getting lost, or staying out of the driver’s hair and letting them be the captain; it’s teamwork at it’s finest. That’s why we always say

“Couples who can successfully & happily RV together, stay together”.

One of the luxuries of RVing is the ability to pick up and go pretty much wherever you want.  Your can take your significant other to a National Monument or drive some place you’ve never been to camp out for the night.  So RVing naturally gives gentleman (and ladies) an advantage when it comes to “wooing” your loved one.  You have the world at your fingertips. I can’t imagine anything more romantic than sitting quietly on a mountain top somewhere or taking a sunset canoe ride on a beautiful lake in Utah.  Ultimately, it’s a matter of taste.  Here are some date night ideas that can happen regardless of location, each catering to different interests.

How to Wow your Guests on an RV Camping Trip

Truthfully, if your guests have never been camping with an RV before, they’ll be wowed no matter what — no further gimmicks are needed. And this is especially true if their only camping
experience is in a tent as a kid with the rest of the family.
Your guests are in for a treat because, as well all know, RVs bring the comfort of home with us on the road.
But, just to make sure your guests are sufficiently wowed, here are a few tips:

rv tipsWow Their Tummy!

For some reason, most anything cooked over a campfire seems to taste better than if not, and a sure fire way to wow your guests is to cook something over the campfire that’s not only delicious, but might just catch them off guard.
But the menu ought to coincide with your guests culinary habits. Simple folk (like me) are perfectly fine with a simple meal, albeit one that’s kicked up a notch. But if your guests are high-brow diners who know which one is the salad fork, then it’s time to get creative.
For something simple, roasting hot dogs over the campfire are perfectly fine. But don’t stop there. Break out all the fixings for a superb buffet of toppings – different flavored mustards, ketchup, relish, cole slaw, chili, onions, cheese, diced tomatoes … you get the idea.
If not hot dogs, how about a pizza pie? You know what I’m talking about, right? Pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni between two buttered pieces of bread, cooked over the campfire in a pie iron. That’s something you can only cook when camping. I can barely eat half a dozen of these at a time, but they’re oh so delicious! For a twist, fill the bread with roast beef, Swiss cheese and flavored mayo instead.
