Step Three: Pick Your Transportation
Will you be traveling long distance to ‘away’ games or watching a game just down the road? Next question: what kind of college football tailgating do you most enjoy—gourmet grilling and serving up exotic sides or setting up a quick picnic in the parking lot?
Knowing if you’ll need overnight accommodations and how you plan to party pregame will help you pick your best transportation for game day. RV comfort and affordability make football weekends even more enjoyable. And you can’t beat the convenience and versatility of preparing tailgating favorites in an RV kitchen.

Step Four: Pick Your Tailgating Menus
Send one through the goal posts this college football season by creating your best RV tailgating menus ever. It’s easy when you consider three things: how will you be cooking, how much time will you have and who will you be serving?
Will you be bringing the grill along? Everything from salmon to bacon-wrapped brats can be grilled at the stadium. Does the family love foil packet specialties or do they cheer when you break out the tailgate pizza? It’s all possible with your great plan for groceries and gear. Lucky for you there’s plenty of storage in an RV kitchen!
Here’s a handy guide to tailgating recipes you’ll want to try out on your fan base.
