We’re about to spend our 12th winter as full-time RVers.
Having lived our entire lives in a four-season climate before reaching escape velocity in our motorhome, one of the most enticing aspects of full-timing was our dream of warm winters.
We hate the cold, and have spent all but one of the past 11 winters in the Desert Southwest, Mexico or Florida.
Three years ago, we decided to stay north for the winter.
Maybe it was the knowledge that we were doing it out of choice that made it okay.
And it wasn’t so bad after all, even in an RV.
We’ll be doing the same thing again this year, so we thought now would be a good time to re-visit the video we made three years ago this week, all about wintering on board our rig.
Even though we’ve come a long way in the video production department — tripods and voice-overs hadn’t been invented yet three years ago 😉 — the many little tricks we learned that year are still worth re-visiting.
Before it gets any colder, the time has come to protect our water lines, our systems and ourselves from freezing.
Break out the flannel sheets and the hot chocolate and check out our video “How To RV in the Winter.”
