Tip of the Day
11 ways to upcycle tin cans while RVing
By Gail Marsh
I like to pack food along for our RV trips. And I prefer to use those foods that come packaged in cans. Why? Because in the rare instance that the pantry door pops open during travel, glass containers will break. Tin cans won’t. My problem is what to do with the empty cans after I’m done with them. I hate adding them to the local landfill. So, I’ve discovered several ways to upcycle tin cans while RVing.
Today’s RV review…
Tony writes, “Today’s review is of the Forest River Wildwood Heritage Glen Hyper-Lyte 22RBHL, a trailer that offers some interesting things in a package that really is lighter in weight but with a surprisingly large cargo carrying capacity.” He lists several pluses in this trailer, but also mentions a couple of things that preclude it from being “an all-star floor plan.”

Used RV shopping – low miles aren’t always the best
When buying a used RV, lower mileage isn’t necessarily a good thing. When someone is driving an RV often, it usually means it’s being well-maintained. Lower mileage when buying a used RV could mean it’s been sitting on an empty lot somewhere and you can wind up with a lot of issues. —From “Beginner’s Guide to Living in an RV: Everything I Wish I Knew Before Full-Time RVing Across America.” Available on Amazon.
