Football season has arrived (that’s pretty big news in Alabama!), and it’s time to cheer on your favorite high school, college and national football teams. But before you head into the stands, it’s important to prepare for the game with a proper tailgating party. And there’s simply no better way to celebrate than with the comforts and conveniences of your RV.
When you fire up your RV and head to the next football game, follow these easy tailgating tips and tricks from Madison RV Supercenter to make your next pre-game experience the best one yet.
Finding the Right Spot
Your RV is likely much larger than other tailgate vehicles at the game, and you probably have a larger tailgating crew too. Arrive early and try to find a spot near a grassy section, so you and your friends have more room to spread out. If your RV isn’t equipped with an awning, keep a canopy on hand to shield against the sun or rain.
Pack the Right Supplies
Start by creating a tailgate checklist that you can use every time you pack your RV for a game. Include Mason jars for holding silverware, aluminum food pans for disposing of charcoal remains and a shoe organizer for storing your cups, coozies, bug spray, hand sanitizer, bottle opener and other tailgate essentials.
Always pack double the amount of ice you think you’ll need, so you can keep all of your food and drinks properly cooled. When serving salads and other cool treats, place your serving dish on top of a bowl filled with ice to keep them cool.
Throw a Potluck
There’s no doubt that your RV will be the center of attention at the tailgate party, so instead of spending time and money preparing food to feed all of your friends, ask each member of your party to bring a dish. This makes for a wider variety of foods and takes a lot of the stress off of being the host.
