Summer’s end is fast approaching, and kids are heading back to school. However, there’s a positive side to this change of seasons, because it also means tailgating season is right around the corner! Sporting events and tailgating are a great reason to own an RV. It just makes the whole experience 10 times better! If you have kids involved with sports teams, imagine taking the team to games with a great 5 th wheel in tow and celebrating a win afterwards with a barbeque. Or maybe you have a favorite football team, and would love to see the game, but the distance and cost for a hotel are too great. An RV is a great way to spend the night before a big game on the campus or near the stadium of your favorite team.
