If pop culture and television have taught me anything, it’s taught me that the zombies are coming, and we should be prepared.  That’s why Westland Camping  is dedicated to keeping you safe during the Zombie Apocalypse.  Westland camping is the official RV dealership of the zombie apocalypse.

With the Walking Dead coming out with a new season starting next weekend,  I want to take a minute and point out where the Walking Dead got it wrong, and how relying on what you see on television will get you stranded, and probably eaten.

For starters, when Season One opened up, the Traveling group of survivors were using a caravan of vehicles, with the home base in a Motor home. On the surface this seems like a completely viable mode of transportation after the apocalypse but when you stop to think about it, its probably exactly the wrong thing and its short-falls were highlighted in subsequent episodes.  Remember the part where they were trying to find a radiator coolant hose that would fit that beastly engine?  The odds of scavenging the required parts to keep yourself on the road are astronomical.  Also, the gas mileage of a motor home will severely limit the travelling you do, especially if it is a diesel.  If you are relying on a motor home to last you a while, like on The Walking Dead, you run the risk of breaking down on the road and losing the ability to use your whole house and all the supplies that you have stock piled. Sitting on the side of the highway looking for a matching radiator cooling hose cost the team valuable time and expose them to risk.for an unacceptable amount of time, when you should be looking over your shoulder.

Absolutely you will want some sort of RV, but I strongly suggest that a towable will offer much more to the wandering survivors over a simple motor home that will surely get you killed.  Over the next couple of weeks, I will be highlighting what types of RVs are the best and worst to rely on, and which ones to stay away from.

Remember, Westland Camping is the Official RV Dealership of the Zombie Apocalypse, and we are committed to keeping you and your family safe from the hordes of mindless eating machines that may already be wandering through your city, waiting to munch on your neighbors.  Stay tuned for these life-saving tips from westland Camping Center.
