In 1996, Joe Cahn sold his business, the New Orleans School of Cooking, and embarked upon a journey that can only be called “one of the best jobs in history” as the self-proclaimed Commissioner of Tailgating. The Commish bought a motorhome and set out to explore “the new American community” -- tailgate parties.
In the 16 seasons he has been "professionally tailgating," Cahn estimates he has visited more than 800 venues and clocked more than 800,000 miles.

It just goes to show you that there are many ways to enjoy the RV lifestyle. Get out there, buy a new or used RV, and enjoy all of the benefits that RVing has to offer.

I just came across an article about an RV that brings tailgaters and wounded Veterans together. The RV is called the “Purpose Driven Rehab” - it's a chance for fans and wounded Veterans to enjoy a different type of tailgating experience. Wounded Veterans travel with the RV, and get paid to help set up and break down the RV. During the games they welcome tailgaters to come in the RV and play video games.
So if you are out there tailgating and see the "Purpose Driven Rehab", be sure to stop by and enjoy a game and great conversation with some Veterans!

Are you planning on traveling by an RV to watch your favorite teams this season?
Many sports fans travel to watch games even if they can’t get tickets - they just want to be close to the action. Traveling by RV is the easiest, most convenient way to join in the fun of college or NFL games. RVs offer plenty of space and access to everything that you need. Don’t have an RV? Consider renting one or purchasing a Used RV for Sale.
Here are a few tips for planning the perfect RV tailgating party:
- Plan ahead. Contact the stadium to see if you need to reserve a specific space. This is also a good time to review the rules and requirements of that stadium. Don’t forget, many college towns welcome sports fan with designated RV parking and some even allow overnight stays – be sure to ask.
- Know what to serve. Search out great tailgate recipes online. FoodNetwork site offers 100 fumble proof tailgate recipes.
- Have your accessories. Be sure to have enough chairs and tables for all your friends! Also, since it is football season, there’s nothing that would be more awesome to add to your RV than an outdoor entertainment center or a stainless steel grill. If you don’t have these options on your RV right now, contact your local RV dealer and see about adding it to your outside storage department.
- Clean up. Pick up your trash and make sure that your area is clean before you leave.
