A toy hauler is not just for RV summer vacations, but is just as ideal for winter travel. As snow flurries cover the road, your toy hauler will be the perfect place to store your snowmobiles, skis, or snowboards. You will be able to have a dream come true winter vacation.
Before you drive, don’t forget
As you travel with your toy hauler during the winter, there are important facts you should remember before hitting the road. First, make sure you call the destination campground ahead of time to find out if your RV unit and toy hauler will fit on the grounds. Typically, you need 60 by 35 feet of space to park or pull-through. Not all grounds offer this, so make sure yours does.
It is also important for you to see if the RV campground you will be staying at offers amenities and hook-ups for your toy hauler. Your toy hauler will store your snow toys, such as snow mobiles, skis, snow tubes, but you definitely want your unit to have the capability to have heated electricity, water, and sewer for the times when you are not on the slopes. Check to see if there is cable or wireless internet, as well.
Choose whether you are taking your toy hauler motor home for fun, sport, resort, or all of the above.
Will you travel with friends this winter?
If you decide to travel with a group of friends, you will find that many RV parks offer group rates. Everyone will have ample space and room for his/her toy hauler. There are also parks available that are kid-free, if that is the route you and your friends would like to take. Before hitting the road, see what restaurants are near by or other apres-ski activities.
RSVP as soon as possible
Once you have selected the winter motorhome spot that you and your friends want to visit, first select a date. Call and check with the RV park as soon as possible to guarantee a spot and that there are enough places for all of the group you are traveling with. Know that there may not be toy hauler space at every RV park.
Before you leave…there are some things to do.
Spend some time looking at your winter gear and toys before you pack them. You want to make certain they are safe and ready to use.
– Check your outdoor winter clothing. What are you missing? Boots? Socks? Purchase before leaving your home town to save money.
– Get your RV checked out by a mechanic. Look at tires, engines, etc. Make sure you tell them that you will be traveling in the cold weather and snow.
– Practice, practice, practice. Take your toy hauler RV around town before hitting the road for the long trip.
Have fun on your winter trip!
Plan ahead and pay attention to timing. Don’t rush on the road. You will get to your winter wonderland and have the time of your life!
