What to pack for a winter RV trip

Friday, August 24, 2018

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you and your family have you stop adventuring. Many RV rental places are open in the winter, so you can still travel and see North Idaho. From skiing and sledding to snowy mountain hikes, there’s plenty to do when snow hits the ground.

However, planning for a winter RV vacation is slightly different from planning for a summer trip. You’ll need to include a few more things on your packing list.

Here’s a few additional items you’ll need for winter RVing:

  • Adventure gear
    From cross country skis to downhill sleds, you’re going to want your outdoor winter adventure gear. That way, no matter where your RV travels take you, you’ll be prepared to get out and have some adventure!
  • Bad weather entertainment
    Winter is an amazing time for RVing, because you can go do all the cold weather outdoor activities, such as sledding, snowboarding or snowmobiling. But sometimes, Mother Nature doesn’t agree. So don’t forget to pack some books, board games, and hot cocoa for those days when the weather isn’t great.
  • Cold weather clothes
    Winter time means colder temperatures, so don’t forget to pack warm clothes, including long underwear, sweaters, jackets and thick socks. Many rental RVs will have heat inside, but you’ll want to be prepared for the North Idaho weather.
  • Flashlights
    In the winter, it gets dark much earlier in North Idaho, sometimes as early as 5 p.m. Bring flashlights, lamps and headlamps so you can go for walks or even set up camp at night.
  • Sunscreen
    We know, it seems counterintuitive. But the sun still shines bright during the winter months in the Pacific Northwest. If you hit the ski hill or go for a snowy hike, apply sunscreen before your outing. You’ll be happy to block those UV rays bouncing off the snow.
