Winter camping in pop-up camper may sounds crazy, but with few simple preparation steps it may be your best ever experience in nature….
Spending time enjoying the outdoors is the main reason people enjoy camping.
Unfortunately, many people only go camping in the warmer months.
But spending time in your camper can be enjoyed year round to take advantage of nature’s beauty in the winter months.
You just might have to make a few extra preparations and get a few extra supplies.
But the extra effort is well rewarded with fewer fellow campers at the campgrounds and opportunities to see a side of Mother Nature not many get to see.
That's what it means waking-up in in the middle of winter's nature
The biggest concern about winter camping, of course, is the temperature. And pop ups don’t provide a lot of protection between you and the frozen tundra. But, as always, be prepared and plan ahead.
snow around and still a lot of fun (may be not?).....
Camping in the winter means getting extra supplies and groceries to be prepared for any weather emergencies or change in travel conditions. Again common sense and a little extra precaution go a long way. Many of today’s pop ups contain a small kitchen, bathroom, and dining area. Take advantage of the amenities you have for the winter months.
If you will be doing winter camping, make sure the camper you choose is certified for 4 seasons. This way you know it is well insulated and has extra precautions to help keep warm in the colder months. If you will be spending a lot of time in your camper, it might be a wise investment for all the amenities. Just make sure to protect the water lines if temps get below freezing. Coleman, Fleetwood, and StarCraft are probably the three most popular brands of campers and each offer a wide variety of amenities at differing prices.
Like any other major purchase, do your homework and as plenty of questions. But if you are planning on taking your pup out in the winter, let your salesman know so he can point you to the right camper for you.
Now that you have a little more insight into the world of winter camping in a pop up camper, you can get planning for your winter vacation. Just remember that common sense and a little extra preparation is paramount. And above all else, warm and dry beats cold and wet.
