When you plan an RV trip, you have several things to do – find a place to park for a night or a week, have the RV checked or serviced, and deciding on what to bring with you. Unless you camp on private property, finding a place means you have to plan your trip location.

If the RV has been stored all winter, stop by Woody’s RV World to have it checked and serviced so you are ready to go for the spring. While you’re here, pick up any accessories you may need or anything that may need replacing such as hoses and other plastic parts that may have been exposed to the cold.

When you pack up your food, be sure to include dessert or ingredients to make your favorite dessert. The Orange Mandarin Salad doesn’t require cooking, so is perfect for the RV.

Orange Mandarin Salad

  • 1 3-ounce package orange jello
  • 1 3-ounce package instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 10-ounce cans mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 8-ounce tub frozen whipped topping, thawed

Dissolve the jello in 1 cup of boiling water. Add ½ cup cold water, then let the mixture sit in the fridge for 20 minutes – no more, no less.

Mix dry instant vanilla pudding into jello mixture with a whisk or a mixer. Fold in the whipped topping. Fold in the mandarin oranges. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Easy Banana Pudding

  • 1 12-ounce box Nilla Wafers
  • 3 – 4 medium bananas
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 16-ounce tub of frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 5-ounce box instant vanilla pudding as prepared for pie filling

Make the pudding according to the instructions for pie filling. Do not let it set. Mix in whipped topping and condensed milk. Slice bananas to desired thickness. Layer pudding mixture, then Nilla Wafers then bananas in a large bowl. Cover and let set in fridge for 4 hours.
