Trailer Ideas For A Rainy Day
September 20th, 2017
Trailer camping is a great way to explore the world and show the kids what life is like on the road and away from civilization. However, sometimes things don't work out quite how you expected and the weather gets in the way of all the outdoor activities you've planned for you and your family. That's okay, don't panic! As long as you've planned ahead, you should have plenty of things to do inside your trailer white the weather clears up.
Sure, board games aren't for everyone, but there are so many out there nowadays that you'd be remiss not to find at least one that you like. Try searching online for stores that just sell board games and tabletop games and you're sure to find something that you like. Risk and Monopoly are two great games that will take hours and hours, and you'll have a blast playing them with your friends or family!
Use rain cover
If your trailer has a pull-out rain cover or if you brought a tent or tarp you can relax out in the rain and enjoy the sights and smells. This would be my preferred way to spend a rainy day because sometimes being outside when it's rainy can be relaxing and you'll have all your trailer's appliances nearby for convenience. Just make sure to layer up if it's cold out!
Read a book
There's no better time to read a book than on a rainy day. Whether you're laying in bed or sitting outside under rain cover, books are a great way to pass the time on the road.
Get some work done
If you live out of a trailer or you just have the ability to work remotely, rainy days can be the best time to get a lot of work done! It's tough trying to focus on work when you see how sunny and beautiful it is out, so you should take advantage of these opportunities. Besides, some people find that working while it's rainy is a lot less stressful, allowing you to be more productive.
If none of these options suit you, there's always the option to put on a rain poncho and play in the rain. There's no shame in that!

"Truly one of a kind amazing people!!!!"
I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for all your help getting this done but most importantly I wanted to really thank you for setting us up with John & Barbara for th Read Moree install.
Professional, polite, fun, knowledgeable and just simply decent people doesn’t even to begin to describe them. Your company is truly blessed to have them!! What an amazing team they are.
They both explained every step of the way what was going on, explained every part being used and it’s purpose. We left for a couple hours during the install and our campground neighbor was totally impressed that even while we were not there they kept working and never missed a beat!!!
After the install was complete John & Barbara hung around for a while going over everything and making sure I had no questions. I’ll be honest.. I’m not the most mechanical person and John made sure I understood everything and the proper way to maintain it as well as making sure I had all their contact information if I ever needed anything or had a problem or questions!!
Truly one of a kind amazing people!

"We are happy campers"
Thank you for the professional installation of my new disk brakes. Preston installed them on 12/30/2019 and the next day traveling thru Dallas/Fort Worth we had three occasions to stop Read Morequickly with confidence on 35W. We pull 15,000 miles a year thru mountains and flats. I now relax behind the wheel pulling our 40 ft 16,000 lb 5th wheel. We are happy campers, Dump those drum brakes for disk brakes. Thank you to your entire team in Norman, OK. My old drum brakes always felt like the trailer was pushing the truck when I stopped. Now I feel like the trailer and truck stop together with no feeling of being pushed. You have to remind yourself the trailer is still back there.

My wife and I would like to thank you for your time and effort to get your product installed on our 5th wheel RV. The difference the disc brakes make is simply amazing. In addition to Read Moreexpressing my appreciation to Performance Trailer Braking, I need to thank you for linking me up with Dennis Hageman, Sonchaser RV, to do the installation. He made the process simple and our time at his place was wonderful. To be able to park the rig and stay there while he worked his “magic” is not typical.
