Top Tips for RVing at the Burner Festival 2019

Sunday, February 10th, 2019

Now one of North America’s largest festivals, burningman.org’s pop up community is on many people’s bucket list and fast becomes an annual tradition. Hosted in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada there are some challenges for first time Burners. We’ve put together out top tips to make RVing in a Burner Friendly RV rental smooth sailing.

Tip 1: Prepare your RV before you arrive at the Burner Festival

Planning is key. Make sure you plan everything from how you’ll cook your meals, how to prepare your rig and everything in between for a smooth experience. Check out our post on How to Prepare your RV for the Burner Festival for the best pro tips.

Tip 2: It will be dusty. Don’t get overwhelmed.

The playa dust leaves a film behind that is difficult to break. A vinegar solution helps but no matter how many precautions you take the dust gets everywhere! Understand that the desert is full of dust and plan for it. Protect your mouth and nose and seal up your RV.

Tip 3: Bring a lot of water and conserve the water you bring.

The only water available at the festival is the water you bring. So be sure to prepare. Take very short showers, consider wet wipes and dry shampoo. And remember what you pack in you have to pack out. Check out our tips on What to Bring with you to the Burner Festival to make life easier and conservation a breeze.

Tip 4: Protect your RV’s interior as much as possible.

With the heat it’s hard not to open up the windows to get more air flow. But the dust truly does get everywhere. Consider wrapping your bed and bringing extra sheets and clothes in sealed bags or containers. There will be something so wonderful about fresh sheets and clothes at the end of the trip that isn’t covered in dust. Wear comfortable sandals and leave them outside, although be sure to weigh them down so they do not blow away. Wondering what you should know before you go? Check out our top tips to making the Burner Festival the best experience yet.

RV Rental Festival Notes:

Please note when booking an RV, choose the Reno (Burning Man) location and choose dates 1-2 days before and after the Burning of the Man festival, August 25 – Sept 2, 2019.

Most RV rental locations will be closed Sunday August 26 and September 4, 2018 so make sure you plan your rental around that as you will not be able to leave your RV at the rental depot while the depot is closed.

Travel Washington Hot Springs Guide in an RV Rental

Why not take advantage of the low RV rental prices in the fall and winter and take the opportunity to visit the Hot Springs in Washington. Hot Springs are one of my favorite things.
