How To Turn Your Diesel Pusher Into A Romantic Getaway For Valentine’s Day

It’s that time of the year, gents. That one day that allows a whole years’ worth of wrongs (not that you’re ever wrong…) to be righted with some proper planning, a few choice words, and a little bit of time.  And if you’re like the rest of us, you’ve been procrastinating up until now so let us help you out by giving you a few tips on how you can successfully turn your Diesel Pusher into the perfect romantic getaway.

There’s a few staples to creating a romantic evening she won’t soon forget.  Let’s start first with setting the mood.  Creating the right ambiance will go a long way in making your lady feel comfortable and that’s what it’s all about.  If your coach happens to be equipped with a fireplace, use that bad boy! What says ‘romantic evening’ more than curling up by the fire? We’ll tell you what…nothing. And make sure to keep the lights dimmed, but not too dim. You have to be able to make eye contact.  Women love that.


If you haven’t ordered her flowers yet, think about getting a couple dozen roses to put around your coach. She’ll go nuts for that and you’ll make her day because you know she’ll be sitting at work all day angry at you for not having flowers delivered to the office.  This is already working out pretty well, don’t you think?

Women love a man who can cook.  If you’re a horrible chef, don’t worry…we’ve has you covered. Here’s what you’re going to do: First, go to Target and get a fondue pot for $25-$30.  While you’re there, don’t forget to get fondue forks. Next, go to the supermarket and grab some peanut oil, fresh, deveined shrimp, scallops, and salmon.  Make sure to keep it all refrigerated until it’s go time. Fill the fondue pot up about 2/3 of the way with the peanut oil, let it heat up (no pun intended), dip the fish in the oil until it’s cooked and you’re golden. Don’t forget to pick up something chocolaty for dessert (we’re not even about to attempt to teach anyone how to bake, here). This will be extremely easy, fun, and most likely something completely different from the normal weeknight dinner you’re used to having with each other.  If the kitchen in your coach looks anything like the one in this 2014 Newmar Dutch Star, put it to good use and look like a hero.

Don’t ever underestimate the power of music. It’s the ultimate aphrodisiac and is the perfect way to put on the finishing touches.  Plus, your DP most certainly has a premium surround sound system.  Pop in Billy Joel’s “Just the way you are” and, if you’re smooth enough to pull it off, maybe a little Al Green “Let’s stay together”? She’s putty.

Finally, make sure you don’t go to all of these great lengths to have an elegant, romantic evening parked in your driveway.  Find a nice quiet lake or a wooded, secluded area that you can safely park in so it’s just the two of you…in your home away from home that’s now the ideal venue for an unforgettable Valentine’s Day and probably more to come if you execute properly. Guaranteed to be the most unique V Day you’ve had yet.  Good luck!
