Summer Camping in the Southeast

Hi! This summer, our family will be camping along the east coast, mostly around beaches between PA and Florida, then back up through the Smoky Mountains, for a total of about 4,000 miles. This will be our first time using our new Coachmen 21TQX (we had a popup for years before that) for a long trip, and our first time to camp in the south during the summer months. Thanks to all the advice on this forum, we did buy PopUp Gizmos, and are looking forward to using them! I have done a bit of research, but am trying to figure out if there are any "unknown unknowns" that I am missing. Do any of you more experienced hybrid owners have advice for a family to work with the heat, humidity and storms of camping in in the Southeast? Maybe a favorite product or routine that works well for long trips in those conditions? Thanks so much for any suggestions you may have!

We are at least one week a month through the summer (north Ga). Our trick is to camp beside water and go in it regularly!!

I live in SE Teas and we have the worst summer weather in the entire country. My fiver has 50 AMP and two AC's and it is only 32 feet. I would not want to RV without the two. Good Luck

Higher elevation is usually cooler and less humid....we saw 46 degrees this past Sat. morning in the mountains of Western NC on the creek.
