We live in an incredible area and love the sun and sand that comes with it. Unfortunately both of these advantages can age your RV interior if you don’t take measures to protect your rig from each of them. We’ve learned some good tips from the RVers who stay in our park and wanted to share a few of them with you.
Shoes. Here in California shoes tend to be open and easy but they do collect sand. Many people adopt a no-shoes policy in their rig. Not only can sand be annoyingly gritty when it is scattered on the floor but it can accelorate the wear of your flooring. RVs are a big investment and leaving your shoes at the door is a small measure that can go a long way in extending the shine and beauty of that lovely new floor.
Rugs. Most RVers use are particular about the rugs they keep outside their door. In this sunny climate we can experience a problem with outside equipment fading. We have spoken to a few people who swear by the Presto Fit Patio Rug . Its backing keeps dirt from coming up through it, can be hosed clean, is fade resistant, and is reasonably priced. You can get them at Amazon and Camping World.
Shades. The sun can and will fade your interior furnishings if allowed to shine inside your rig too often and for too long. Most rigs come complete with shades but serious RVers have been known to upgrade their shades to something that blocks more light. You can talk to a dealer about this and to get an idea of pricing.
The sun is a wonderful thing. Many who come from the eastern states are almost hungry for it. But, like most things, moderation is key and this applies not just for your skin but for your RV as well.
