Tricks for Cooking In and Out of Your RV

Whether you’re hiking with a tent or parking your RV, one of the best parts of camping is how little prep you need to worry about once you have your basic gear. All you really need to do before a trip is replenish any of your consumables and load up on food. While it can be easy to reach for the same camp-friendly meals every time you head out, our RV dealer near Pennsylvania recommends trying something new to shake things up!

Breakfast

Even with a full RV kitchen at your disposal, cooking over the campfire can be nice when you make camp. Start the day by living a paper bag with bacon, cracking a few eggs inside, and using a stick to roast the whole thing over hot coals for a few minutes. You’ve got a full breakfast in a bag! Just don’t cook it over an open flame, or the greasy bag will catch and you’ll lose your breakfast.

If you’re going to whip something up in the RV, you can save yourself some time, space, and hassle by cracking eggs into a bottle before you leave. No broken shells to worry about, no empty shells to throwaway, and no carton to store! Even better, why not park your new RV at a local market along the way to try this trick out with some fresh eggs from the famous Pennsylvania Dutch farmlands?

Lunch

Everyone loves macaroni and cheese and, as the chef of the trip, love preparing ahead of time. Combine both by making some macaroni and cheese beforehand and dividing it up into smaller aluminum tie pins coated with non-stick spray.

Personal pan macaroni and cheese

These are great, quick lunches as they can be prepared over the hot coals of your fire or over the stove in your RV’s kitchen. Convenience is key while camping, after all!

Dinner

Whether it’s a long drive or a day of hiking, you set the stage for the next day’s energy with a nice hearty meal. Quesadillas over the fire are the perfect way to wind down the night. Easy to make and easy to load up with whatever your campers are craving, quesadillas are also a great way to sneak in a few carbs without the space taken up by bread or other baked goods.

Whatever you and your campers decide to eat along the way, having an RV makes it easy to load up on your favorites and to keep everyone full and smiling for the whole trip.

Choosing the Right Trailer at Our Pennsylvania Area Dealership

Just like when you’re choosing an RV at our Pennsylvania area dealership, choosing the right trailer will depend heavily on your individual plans and needs; there’s no one-size-fits-all “best trailer.” There are many different types of trailers, in fact, and the right one will vary a lot from person to person.

Fortunately, the team at our trailer dealer near Pennsylvania is here to help you hone in on exactly what you need. Take a look at some key questions to ask yourself, then reach out to our team and let us point you in the right direction!

Work or Play?

Whether you own your own company or just have a lot to move around on your own property, a utility trailer serves a completely different purpose than a travel trailer. We offer both at Dylans RV, so you can always come in and take a look if you’re not sure what you’re after.

Utility trailers available near Pennsylvania

A utility trailer can be open or closed, and the choice is yours to make. While an open trailer can be loaded from any side and is less restrictive for awkwardly shaped cargo, it doesn’t offer protection from the elements and you’ll have to be extra careful when strapping things down.

A travel trailer, of course, will be closed off from the elements. Still, you’ll need to consider your cargo when choosing a trailer if you’re buying one for toting extra belongings.

Sizing

Camping trailers and utility trailers both come in a range of sizes, so be realistic when choosing. Sure, you might save some money by choosing a smaller trailer, but that doesn’t do you much good if you can’t fit your equipment on it or if you and your friends are cramped while camping out.

By the same logic, buying an oversized trailer is a waste of space if it’s more than you really need. That’s sure to hit home while you’re maneuvering, too.

Weight

Whatever sort of trailer you need, you’ll also need an appropriate vehicle for towing it. This can vary drastically. Some teardrop trailers, for instance, are light enough to be towed by a typical sedan. Larger utility trailers, though, might require a ¾- or full-ton truck to tow. Be sure to do your research before hitching up!

For more information on the types of trailers available and which one suits you best, don’t hesitate to contact us or to pay us a visit here at Dylans RV! You can always give us a call at (856) 228-0090 with any questions.

Towing With Your RV: What You Need to Know

When you’re out on the road in your RV, you bring along many of the luxuries of home. One luxury that you don’t bring along, though, is a particularly maneuverable vehicle. Sometimes, having your usual vehicle with you once you arrive at your destination can make a big difference in your trip.

Towing an RV

If you choose to tow your vehicle behind your RV, you get the benefit of a more maneuverable vehicle without the added planning or stress of renting a vehicle. Of course, whether or not you can tow a car behind your RV will depend on the type of RV you choose at our NJ dealership.

A key figure to consider is your RV’s gross combined weight rating, or GCWR. This figure dictates the combined vehicle, cargo, and trailer weight you can handle. A truck camper, for instance, probably takes advantage of most of your truck’s GCWR, so it might not have much power left for towing. A sizeable RV, though, likely has towing capacity to spare even when the interior is loaded with your usual cargo. Checking the numbers is the only way to be sure. If you’re in the market for a new RV and plan on towing, keep these figures in mind while shopping at our NJ location.

What Type of Vehicle Can You Tow?

If you have an appropriate vehicle trailer to hitch to your RV, you can tow any vehicle that doesn’t exceed your weight capacities. Purchasing and storing a trailer might not be ideal, though, which leaves you with the option of towing a vehicle by attaching a tow bar and allowing it to roll on its own wheels.

New RVs available in NJ

In this scenario, though, a vehicle must be able to roll freely; this isn’t always a given with today’s vehicles. Typically, suitable vehicles include rear-wheel drive vehicles with manual transmissions or four-wheel drive vehicles with manual transfer cases shifted into Neutral. Towing vehicles with automatic transmissions puts those transmissions at risk of serious damage.

Of course, the best way to ensure your vehicle is suitable for flat towing is to check your manual. This will tell you whether it can be towed with all four wheels on the ground (and if so, how to do it safely) or whether you’ll need a trailer for one or both axles in order to tow safely.
