I'm new at camping and I am curious to know what's it like riding out a heavy windy rain storm? I'm thinking also about lightening striking.

Please let me know what I would experience inside this TT ! I haven't been christened yet!

Thanks!
Rik

Stay off the phone, put the awning in and enjoy a beautiful light show.

Listen to the thump of the rain on the roof if your roof is rubber. Rain hitting metal roofs sounds like living in an old Southern house with a tin roof, I sleep like a baby during storms. Good advice to bring in the awning. As for lightning, no worries for me as long as I am inside and dry. In tornado country, ask the campground management where the storm shelter is and what method they use for warning the campsite.

I use a NOAA weather radio receiver that is permanently installed in the fiver.

I probably should say the light show scares me a little. I've been hit by lightening once and I get nervous!

I need to get a radio since we are in tornado country. Great idea, thanks!!

Sounds rather soothing, until that first kapow! Maybe I'll try camping in the drive way during a storm for a test run. Do these trailers rock you to sleep?
