Now that Fall weather is finally setting in, there are a few items you may want to purchase for your next camping trip. Reines RV Center has two locations in Virginia to help supply you with all the Fall and Winter parts and accessories you need! Here are a few items to consider:

For Sitting By the Campfire

There are a few key accessories you need for those zero-gravity-reclinerbeautiful nights out by the campfire. First, make sure you have enough comfortable seating options for all your family and friends. Zero Gravity Recliners are perfect for the outdoors and comfortable enough to sit in all night long. You’ll also want to make sure your fire is safe and contained by purchasing a Collapsible Fire Ring. These are easy to use and assemble, so you can have s’mores every night!

For a Rainy Day

While Virginia is undoubtedly beautiful in the Fall, mother nature can still interfere every once in awhile. Be prepared for a rainy day by packing plenty of board games, card sets, or arts and crafts supplies. Extra points if you can keep everyone off their cell phones and computers for an extended period of time!

For a Cold Day

Just like rain, cold weather can hit awningcoverunexpectedly as well, but don’t let it ruin your fun. Reines RV Center has a great selection of Awning Rooms that will keep you warm and comfortable, even when the cold sets in. Relaxing in your awning room will allow you to enjoy the camping experience, without feeling like your trapped inside the RV all day (or freezing outside).

Fall is one of the best times of year to camp, and you want to make sure you and your RV are fully prepared for all the adventures ahead.
