Festival season is upon us, folks! Does anyone remember the TV show “Malcolm In The Middle?” In one particular episode, an angsty Malcolm tricks his parents into taking their vacation at Burning Man, so they pack up an RV and head out into the Nevada desert. Hilarity ensues, of course, but it’s a great idea to bring your RV along to a festival! We’ve compiled a small list of Lakeshore RV’s best groovy RVs for camping out at music festivals and you can avoid setting up your tent in a potential field of mud, or worse yet, being forced to sleep in your car all weekend!
Forest River Wolf Pup 18TO Travel Trailer
Keep your festival camping experience easy with the Wolf Pup 18TO! It’s super compact at only 22’9” long, and is 3,797 pounds dry for incredibly easygoing towing and maneuverability. Sure, you won’t have the fanciest features, but you’ll still enjoy a 10 foot-long power awning where you can hang some mood lighting, and outside speakers so you can blast your favorite playlists for after-hours dance parties! This Wolf Pup is fun inside too! It's convenient with a jackknife sofa/bed and a surprising fold-down bunk so your friends won’t have to rough it in a tent. You’ll also appreciate the queen bed, where you can crash after a long day, and store more cargo with an under-bed storage area! If you’re looking for comfort and convenience for the best price, the Forest River Wolf Pup is the way to go!
Keystone Bullet 311BHS Travel Trailer
If you don’t need anything too fancy and are looking for a lighter RV to come along with you to music festivals, the Keystone Bullet 311BHS is perfect! Its lightweight design makes it easy to navigate into tight music festival parking areas! It has a private entry door to the bathroom for easy trips while hanging out after a long day, and even comes with an outside kitchen for easy outdoor cooking! This particular model comes standard with a fun bunkhouse, so whether you’re a music-loving family or just want extra space for your friends to crash comfortably, the Bullet 311BHS has what you need. You’ll even greatly appreciate the outside shower, with both hot and cold water, so you won’t have to wait in line for the festival showers, which, let’s face it, can almost take a short lifetime!
Forest River Arctic Wolf 285DRL4 Fifth Wheel
With this tough fifth wheel, you can adventure out to winter music festivals with no problem! It’s great for any season, with an enclosed and heated underbelly, along with arctic insulation and a 35,000 BTU furnace for colder months, or a 13,500 BTU ducted A/C unit so you can beat the summer heat! Just like most others on this list, the Arctic Wolf 285DRL4 comes standard with solar power prep so you can survive the weekend without being connected to hookups! Take a look around and you’ll see why it’s perfect for today’s festival goers with a power awning, outside shower, and USB charging stations inside! This is by no means your everyday festival RV! Sure, you can hang out in the shade and relax, but the interior of the 285DRL4 is so comfortable that you won’t be able to wait to get inside and relax! A power theater sofa features power massage and heat so you can relax your sore muscles while you chill! Don’t forget to check out the comfy power master bed, which sits on a lift system so you can adjust the position just how you’d like it for maximum relaxation!
Heartland Torque XLT T322 Toy Hauler
This toy hauler is sure to have everything you’ll need for maximum fun at music festivals! It features a rear garage that has 12 ½ feet of cargo space, so you can bring along all the equipment you’ll need! These are usually intended for transporting motorized vehicles like ATVs and ORVs, but it’s perfect for packing up canopy tents, tons of camp chairs, and any other fun items you plan on bringing along! The T322 also has great living space and a sleeping capacity of up to six people thanks to the spacious king-sized bed in the front master bedroom and a unique bunk setup in the back with an electric queen bed and an electric trifold bunk below. You’ll also appreciate the convenience of both a full and half bath. This Torque XLT T322 comes equipped with an outdoor kitchen so you can try to recreate some of your favorite festival foods right outside! Beat the heat of summer festivals with a ducted A/C system with two units, and if you’re still camping out for some of the fall festivals, this Torque XLT features ducted heat too! This T322 is a fantastic choice for all your cargo and comfortable camping needs!
Things To Remember For Music Festival RVing
Not every festival offers on-site RV parking. If it’s your first time attending a particular festival, check its official website to see what kind, if any, of camping is available. Some festivals may only offer tent and car camping on-site, while others may offer space for RVs. Be prepared for no hookups. Since a lot of trendier music festivals occur sometimes out in the middle of nowhere, you’re not going to get the luxury of full hookups, let alone any hookups at all. If you can’t stand going without some creature comforts, check out nearby campgrounds instead. Shop around for campsites. This may not really apply to more local and smaller-scale music festivals, but the more popular events out there, like Coachella, will have surrounding campgrounds that are prepared for music festival campers. Many times, you’ll be able to score a deal with included meals, shuttle service to and from the festival, and exclusive parties during and after the events!
