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!

"You'll never go back!"
I met The Titanguy at the Dallas RV show in September and have long been wanting disc brakes on my coach. Great gear, works very well... Read More I love them, the extra stopping power, quick response, peace of mind they are going to be there when I need to STOP !!!! Highly recommend if you are thinking about disc brakes to consider Titan and talk to Ron.

"Wow, what a difference!"
Just finished having Disc Brakes installed yesterday by "Bill" the installer for Performance Brakes. Wow, what a difference! After completing yesterday we left on a 175 mile test journey. Read More Drove two lane twists, small towns, and freeway. The braking ability is much more than I expected. During my test ride with installer he had me do a hard brake situation going about 25 mph and we came to a stop in about half the distance of my old brakes. These brakes give you a lot of comfort when driving knowing I can stop quickly if needed. Interestingly, the old brakes which we took off only had about 8k miles on them and the pads were half worn and the eltromagnets were badly worn on two of the wheels. Granted we do more two lane twisty road driving than freeway driving. Bill the installer was very meticulous about his work and in addition found some wires that weren't crimp right (not related to brakes) and fixed them without saying anything until he was done. I would recommend him without any hesitation for Brakes and suspension work. I will report back if there's any change after our 175 mile trip home tomorrow.

"Disk Brakes Rock!"
Disk Brakes Rock! I just converted to disk brakes, using the Titan Performance Trailer Brakes. Whoa Nellie, do they stop smoother and quicker.
