Windows, of course, open and close — but there are many other ways to manipulate your windows to improve the climate inside.
"Especially when boondocking, it can get really hot in your RV," says Brooke Baum, who co-founded TrailingAway with her husband, Buddy. The couple are full-time travelers who spent a full year exploring the U.S. and Canada in a 25-foot motorhome. "But even with the AC on, taking some considerations to stay cool can go a long way. Don't park in direct sunlight and keep your blinds closed. You may also consider upgrading to dual-pane windows."
Sumberac agrees and offers other suggestions, as well. "When it comes to staying cool in your RV, there are a handful of surprisingly simple tips that go a long way," he says. "When it's particularly warm out, covering your windows completely or lowering the shades could make a huge difference. On a shady and cooler day, open the windows to let fresh air in and to make sure there's enough ventilation in the RV."
