Tailgating in an RV takes your party to a whole new level. If you don’t already own your dream RV, it might be time to come by Guaranty to purchase one for tailgating. If the past few overcast days in the Willamette Valley have reminded us of anything, it’s that a beautiful Oregon fall is nearly here and that means—you guessed it—college football season. The first non-conference games, Oregon State vs. Portland State and Oregon vs. South Dakota, are on August 30—two weeks away! If you’re from Oregon, particularly around Eugene or Corvallis, you know that Duck and Beaver football are a big deal. And tailgating at Autzen or Reser is equally as big a deal—from the art and science of barbecuing the perfect rump roast, to making sure you’re all wired in to watch the pre-game, to keeping your carefully curated selection of local craft beer cold.
Why use an RV for Tailgating?
There are many reasons to use an RV for tailgating.
The list goes on and on, but here are the Top 3:
1. Shelter from the Weather
Tailgating in Oregon is a great outdoors experience; between the fresh clean air and the beautiful fall colors as the leaves turn, there’s no better way to spend your day before the game. Unfortunately, as we Oregonians know, the weather is extremely unpredictable. An RV will give you indoor shelter when the temperatures drop, and the patio awning will protect you from the rain while you grill.
2. Prepare and Store Your Side Dishes and Hors d’Oeuvres
Between the refrigerator and a fully-equipped kitchen with all the necessary appliances and counter space, prepping and storing your game day ingredients is a breeze.
3. Impressive Entertainment Systems and Technology
Many RVs come equipped with excellent sound and entertainment systems. This can include big screen TVs, surround sound systems inside and on the patio, and CD/DVD players with AM/FM tuning, USB ports, and auxiliary inputs. RV patios are more sophisticated than ever with outdoor kitchens and entertainment systems.
