I am sitting in Gold Beach Oregon on the coast and have no plans to move or leave. We are waiting in anticipation for the storm. Should be fun! Come on out

We still go. But I have to say, next week, Erika seems to be moving up the coast and we're scheduled to go back to Castaways next weekend. Will have to make an executive call on that sometime next week!


And just fyi..
ALL of our camping friends call our family The Schleprocks! It ALWAYS rains when we go it seems!

Your TT will handle the rain just fine, especially if you have full hookups so you don't have to worry about battery(ies) being able to support the furnace and additional time spent inside with lights, radio, TV etc on.

I would suggest you enusre you have MaxAir vent covers installed before the trip. Its a pretty easy DIY or most dealers will do it pretty reasonably. The vent covers will allow you to keep roof vents open in during the rain with no risk of water coming it. It is essential to reduce considensation on the inside with the furnace running.

Also, make you have a woven patio mat that water can run through. It will help keep mud out of your TT.

I'm with Camper Bob...it just seems to rain nearly every time we go camping. I would not cancel a trip because of rain and 20-30 mph winds are not that much. Just make sure your awning is not out in those winds. The last time were were out, I help a guy in a class A take his awning off after a wind gust caught it and damaged it beyond repair...we had blue skies but a thunderstorm was approaching and the wind caught most people off guard. x2 on the MaxAir covers

Well this is cool - the MaxAir vent cover And the woven mat just arrived from Amazon yesterday. Hubby will install the cover tonight.

We will be doing full hookup so that's one less worry for the first time out.

Our old trailer had a manual awning, so we weren't afraid to leave the awning out in the rain and sit below it and watch the storms. Our new trailer has an electric awning, so we don't leave it out. The new trailer also has a slide out, so there is room for the wife and I and our daughter and son inside when it rains. That's when we pull out games for the kiddos, or a family friendly movie to watch.

Your trailer will be just fine in a storm, no different than when its parked on the lot at the dealer and it storms.

We have a pop up, and went for a week to Winchester Bay. Three of those days was a wild rain storm with 40 mph winds, we had a blast, warm and dry. We would do it again.

Thanks you guys! I really like this forum. I'll report back on Monday and let you all know how it went. Oh, and after reading some of the comments, I guess we need more than one of those max air vents eventually. One will have to do for now. :-)

Happy weekend everyone.

Heck yeah, go for it. Being dry and warm during a rainstorm while camping makes you feel like you succeeded at life. Drive safe and enjoy the voyage.
