The RV Tailgater’s Garage

I have a two-car garage but there’s only room for one car.

The other side is filled with all my RV and tailgating gear.

An RV Tailgater’s garage is different than both the regular RV owner and the regular tailgater.

Instead of adding the two together, it’s like we multiplied the gear. In other words, we have a bunch of stuff to make an RV tailgate run properly. And at some point, it all ends up in the garage.

Let’s take a look at what is in my garage


From bottom to top:

  1. Costco tailgating chairs
  2. A tailgating grill
  3. Case of oil for the generator
  4. A bag of organizing goodies from the Container Store
  5. Wood scraps
  6. Distilled water for the house batteries
  7. Rain suit
  8. New sewer hoses, because old broken sewer hoses are just eeewww
  9. New headlights for the RV
  10. A box from Amazon (Remind me: what did I order this time?)
  11. A cooler (if you look behind the distilled water and below the headlights, you’ll see another blue cooler)
  12. A new Stanley fan
  13. Boxes and shelves of miscellaneous tailgating stuff (plates, cups, napkins, etc)
  14. Cleaning Products and 1 lb propane tanks
  15. Shark Cordless Vaccum – Pet Hair Edition
  16. A step ladder

The mess changes during the season too. The grill and chairs normally stay inside the RV, unless they need to be cleaned or dried. Or I’m spraying them down with Permethrin.

The coolers are always going in and out, being refilled as necessary.

After particularly rainy or muddy games, I’ll lay out the outdoor carpet for drying in the area near the yellow cooler.

When the weather is hot, there is no need to take the propane heater. As it cools off, I’ll trade the heater for a large box fan that is currently inside the RV.

At least the beer can stay cold in the RV fridge week to week since I can plug the RV in at home.

Doesn’t your garage look like this too? Please tell me this is normal.
