These Are 3 of the Best RVs for Tailgating

Best RVs For Tailgating

Football season is back and in full swing, which means it’s time to wake up early on Sunday mornings and head to the stadium to join the rest of the gang tailgating. There’s no better way to tailgate than in your comfy and cozy RV. Jayco RVs specifically are perfect for tailgating. In fact, the three best RVs for tailgating are all Jayco models.

Jayco Jay Flight 32BHDS

This is perfect for tailgating because it has a kitchen inside and another kitchen outside, with a two-burner grill. There’s no way you’ll run out of hot dogs and burgers with that much kitchen space. This Jayco RV’s second kitchen boasts a second refrigerator, meaning more space for soda, water, and beer. The second outdoor kitchen even includes a sink so friends and family can wash up before eating. Finally, this Jayco model features a bathroom entrance from outside the RV, meaning friends and family won’t need to travel through your personal space to use the bathroom.

An RV that is underrated for camping and tailgating. It also has a second kitchen and direct bathroom entry, making it a great option, too.

This is a toy hauler is our third suggestion because of all the open space for seating, eating, and playing games.

Make the Perfect Shrimp Boil on Your Next Camping Trip

If you love to take your RV out for weekend (or longer!) fishing trips here in Texas, consider this delicious shrimp boil recipe. You can use the very shrimp you catch in Texas’ own saltwater.

Ingredients – You will need

  • 2 lbs of shrimp
  • 1 lb of kielbasa, sliced into 2-inch pieces
  • 4 ears of corn
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ lbs of whole red potatoes
  • 6 cups of water
  • ¼ cup of Zatarain’s Old Bay Seasoning
  • Cocktail sauce for serving
  • Sliced lemons
  • Melted butter

Directions

Boil the potatoes (covered in the lemon slices, seasoning, and water) in a 6-7-quart slow cooker, covered, for roughly 3 hours. Then, add in the sausage and corn. Cover and cook for 2 more hours. Now it’s time for that delicious shrimp. Stir in the shrimp thoroughly. If necessary, add more water—it should reach the top of your slow cooker.

Cocktail Sauce & Butter

Cover and cook for another half-hour on high or until the shrimp is properly cooked. Take the concoction out of the slow cooker and serve it in bowls. Use cocktail sauce and melted butter for dipping, as desired. You can also garnish with lemon wedges.

Millennials Love RVs—and Here’s Why

About a decade ago, the RV industry was in trouble. The recession was in full swing and gas prices were exploding, making it not a good time for many Americans to make a significant purchase like a recreational vehicle. But today, RV sales are skyrocketing, and you may just be surprised when you hear which generation is responsible for this dramatic upswing.

Coast to coast, Millennials love RVs. They’re buying them in record numbers, boosting RV year-over-year sales revenue into the double-digits. Younger buyers, or those under the age of 34, are not opting for massive, Class-A, higher-end motorhomes, but for smaller, more compact, Class-C models. The sales of “towables,” rather than the classic “driveables,” account for a significant portion of sales over the past three years. There’s a reason for this; smaller RVs not only cost less up-front and require less fuel, but they’re easier to maneuver and park at campgrounds, and often don’t require a special permit.

The fact that Millennials love RVs has done more than just revitalize the RV industry. Over the past three years, America’s National Parks have seen record-breaking numbers of visitors and campers, many of whom arriving and camping in an RV.

RVs help people to experience the wonders of the natural world, bond with their friends and family, and create lifelong memories — which is why we love to sell them here at Hanner RV Supercenter. Visit us today to find your new home-away-from-home.
