Boondocking Tips: Why Do We Face East?

Boondocking Tips: Why Do We Face East?


Because we often boondock in wide open spaces, it allows us to face our RV in any direction we like. So why do we always face East when we have the option? Watch the video above for the answers! Here are some tips that may help you find your best direction, too.

On a side note, we’re excited to let you know that on the same day this video was shot, we also filmed a related segment about boondocking. That segment will be showing up on our new TV series The RVers, when it debuts on PBS, iTunes, Amazon and other outlets this fall! We will of course keep you posted with further updates as we get closer to the series launch.

In the meantime, check out TheRVers.TV for more info, and follow (and like!) the show on Facebook!

Hey Fellas, I am heading to Utah (Bryce and Zion is all we have time for) next May and ideally wanting to boondock on BLM or FS sites etc. never been before. There seems to be some info out there, but most of the videos/info I can find are folk that are tenting or converted vans and such. I’m just wondering, if some fellow Newmar diesel pusher folk have some words of wisdom? Places you’ve stayed where the roads were good? Or places to avoid? I’ve been to some places before, where people that don’t own diesels, suggested to go to, that weren’t ideal for getting a diesel to. So I tend to take caution from others, but if you had some advice, I know it’d be good. If I was thinking, I should have picked your brains at Buttle Lake two summers ago ;)

Just curious, what if you have a rear window and want to take advantage of a beautiful sunset? For the dream travel trailer I put in a rear window plus have the refrigerator on the drivers side with the entry on the passenger side.

Each floor plan has its own pros and cons for facing each direction in various conditions. Sometimes compromises are needed, depending on layout.

I just found a grate way to save on propane an electric usage! My first week using the Gosun Sport Solar cooker. I can cook a whole meal between 45-60 min while I'm doing other projects in the RV. Long after the sun goes down the food still stays warm. easy clean up. Can even add a insert to boil water for tea or coffee. Happy motoring Rich Hudson FL.
