Heading South this winter? Make your trip a success with these tips!
Is all this snow tempting you to head South? Follow this handy Guide to Snowbirding in Your RV for tips on how to make your trip South a success!
Favorite destinations for Snowbirds: Coast or Desert?
To truly escape cold temperatures during winter, you have to head pretty far south – even New Mexico is exceptionally chilly at night. As an RV snowbird, your winter migration route will mostly be limited to two geographies:
Coastal areas found in popular Southeast destinations like:
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Florida’s Atlantic and Gulf Coasts
Gulf Coast States like Alabama, Mississippi and Texas
The Southeast enjoys a humid, warm tropical climate, but in return for that shorts and sandals weather you will get to deal with humidity, flying cockroaches and fire ants.

Watching the snow fall outside your window from the comfort and warmth of your RV is a magical time.

Dreaming of a warm winter but seeing snow in the forecast? Don’t despair! Traveling south for the winter is always an option (goodbye snowbirds!), but here are some tips if you’re RVing in the winter in a cold environment:
Protect your water hoses: wrap hose in aluminum foil – transfers the heat from the heat tape to the water hose, add foam tubes, heat tapes and sealant. Add a pressure regulator to the water line and check for leaks. Insulate larger piping and hoses with heat tape. Build a box around your hookups, and add a thermostat that activates a heater when the temperate drops
Protect your systems from freezing: gray water must protect from freezing by flowing entirely downhill. No one wants a frozen sewer line! The gray valve can always be closed temporarily in extreme cold temperatures. Steel wool protects mice from getting [...]
