Where do you turn when your whole neighborhood — or even your entire city — is wiped out by an act of Mother Nature?

We learned the hard way with Katrina that being prepared for disaster is your own responsibility. You can’t rely on anyone else to keep you safe, provide aid, or come to your rescue. Your fate is in your own hands.


That’s why, as an RVer, you need to have an emergency plan, and make sure that your RV is ready to roll with everything you need to be comfortable and secure in the event of an emergency.

Remember, a natural disaster could strike no matter where you happen to be — at home, or on the road.

How To Prepare Your RV For Use As An Emergency Shelter


Yet Another Benefit Of Having An RV…

In the minds of some, having relatives arrive unexpectedly for a week or more could be a disaster of sorts.

What better way to make them welcome while protecting your sanity than to set them up in your RV in the back yard?

I’ve been involved in RVing for over 50 years — including camping, building, repairing, and even selling RVs and motorhomes. I’ve owned, used, and repaired almost every class and style of RV ever made. I do all of my own repair work. My other interests include cooking, living with an aging dog, and dealing with diabetic issues. If you can combine a grease monkey with a computer geek, throw in a touch of information nut and organization freak, combined with a little bit of storyteller... you’ve got a good idea of who I am. To date, I've shared my RV knowledge in over 300 articles here at The Fun Times Guide! Many of them have over 25K shares.
