Most of our favorite athletes have returned to the gridiron. As fans, for the next four or five months, the ritual begins. They will be gathering in droves outside stadiums across America, hours before game time, enjoying good food, libations and tossing the ball around, while pretending to be their favorite athletes.

The tradition of tailgating is about to kick off

There are many positive effects of tailgating. However, the great impact is that tailgating creates a unity among a community of diverse people who come together to support a team. The great site of a sea of colorful fans together supporting a team is so impressive. Yet, the most of the fun starts prior to kickoff, as many people participate in the tailgating tradition.

Rules

Tailgating is usually a relaxed atmosphere. But, there are a few rules that most stadiums, college or professional, have that you must follow to ensure having a good time.

At the University of Florida, for example, a parking pass for your motorhome and other vehicles must be clearly in view at all times. And, definitely park in your assigned place. Otherwise, the cost of towing will ruin your fun. The stadium does not allow pull-along or exterior generators. Exhaust extensions, which can be found in your Lazydays parts department, must be placed on all motorhomes to direct the fumes skyward. Florida State University and the University of South Florida have similar rules for tailgaters.

The Ultimate RV Tailgating Lifestyle

Most people at tailgating are easy-going. A companionable atmosphere where people can enjoy a good cookout in the company of friends and family is essential. For avid RVers, their homes on wheels bring tailgating to another level. Not only do they partake in the pre-game excitement, but they have a comfortable place to relax and unwind after cheering their team to a victory.

Some RVers plan ahead and enhance their RV tailgating experience by parking so their entrances and awnings are facing each other. This technique allows the RVers to share an expanded entertaining area between the two coaches. All the while, it provides more room to enjoy all the pre-game festivities.
