The open road and the great outdoors are two of the best reasons for camping. One thing to keep in mind when planning your getaways is RV security. Food, clothing and other gear may make your packing list, but safety measures may not always be on your radar.  While camping and RV travel is generally a safe endeavor, being prepared can help avoid unfortunate situations.

Everyone loves to camp during the warmer months of the year. But winter RV camping can be an amazing experience – and much quieter too. There’s rarely a crowd when camping in the winter months.

Soft blankets of snow cover the ground and create a canvas for wildlife activity that may not be as easy to spot when camouflaged by the greens, yellows and browns of the other three seasons. Trails you may have hiked before are transformed into new adventures in the winter. Activities like swimming are exchanged for sledding, snowshoeing, or even cross-country skiing.  You may be a snowmobiler and enjoy winter camping while out on new trails.

A key part of RV ownership and lifestyle is propane. Propane gas provides a means to enjoy conveniences while you are camping such as bathing with hot water, cooking and keeping warm to avoid the winter chill in your RV. However, you must never forget that propane is a hazardous gas. No matter how accustomed you become to using propane, remembering to practice RV propane safety is also a key part of RV ownership and lifestyle.
