Hurricane – Camper

It is equipped with a propane generator, a stove, a refrigerator, a shower and an air conditioner! How nice would it be to have air conditioning and lights when power lines are down all around you, not to mention cold beverages and hot food.

My husband travels regularly for work. Last year he purchased a small pull-behind camper to use as a mobile office and sleeping quarters for when he is on the road. I was recently convinced to spend a weekend in the camper with him at an RV park near the beach. When I say small, I mean this camper is really not a two person camper. While it does have a queen sized bed, the living and bathroom areas are miniscule. If he has his desk/table set up, two people cannot pass each other. The other day I was thinking ahead to hurricane season. If you live near the coast, you know this is from June 1 to November 30. The last major hit, we did have a small generator to run the refrigerator and we had a gas hot water heater so we were able to take hot showers. Our Gulf Coast area has taken several hits during my lifetime, so maybe I should rethink the camper. It is equipped with a propane generator, a stove, a refrigerator, a shower and an air conditioner! How nice would it be to have air conditioning and lights when power lines are down all around you, not to mention cold beverages and hot food. While there would still be lines to have the propane tanks refilled, we could have air conditioning. Between the humid climate of the southeast and the increased number of mosquitoes, sleeping with the doors and windows open is extremely uncomfortable. I realized after the last hurricane, I really do not want to be without my air conditioner. Hopefully I will not have to use it, but it is good to know I could have air conditioning.
