Tailgating season is officially here and there’s no better way to tailgate than with your RV. One of America’s favorite pastimes, tailgating is a perennial activity that brings together friends and family, sports, and great food.

Your RV, whether a class A or a travel trailer, offers you an unrivaled tailgating experience. The potential is almost limitless given the onboard kitchen, an awning for shade, and a reliable source of power for televisions, fans, lights, and other electronics necessary for tailgating. Sure beats trying to tailgate out of a truck’s flatbed!

If you want to make your RV tailgating even more convenient and enjoyable, you need an outdoor kitchen. After all, when you have guests over for a tailgate party, you want to stay outside where all the fun is at, rather than ducking into the RV to check on the food.

Available on certain models, an outdoor kitchen conveniently offers you everything you need to cover the “food” aspect of your tailgating party. Even a basic setup involves a cooktop and sink, while luxury setups can include a refrigerator, microwave, mini bar, outlets, and even a television screen. With a setup like that, who even needs to be in the stadium?

Tips to make your tailgating party a hit.

An outdoor kitchen will help make your party a success, but it’s important to follow these tips if you want your RV to be the envy of the lot:

  • Arrive early. You’ll get the best spot and have plenty of time to prep.
  • Know your menu ahead of time and come prepared. Double check your inventory before heading out.
  • Keep the menu simple and classic. Burgers and toppings, plenty of chips and dip, and cold drinks are foolproof.
  • Ensure that your RV is in tip-top shape with a service and maintenance visit before the big game. Nothing dampens the mood quite like technical issues.
  • Besides rain, that is. Make sure you check the forecast and outfit accordingly.
