RVs enable spontaneity and a break from the rigid schedules of everyday. But, it is important to have a few things mapped out a head of time. In this blog, we are sharing some helpful tips on planning a successful and enjoyable trip in an RV.
“Still round the corner, there may wait, a new road or a secret gate.” – J.R.R. Tolkien
Account For Weather – Whether you are choosing days for an RV excursion or already have, it is important to know what kind of weather is in store for your trip so that you can plan around or work with rain, heat, snow, and more.
Choose The Right RV – Choose the most fitting RV for your trip. If you have a large group or plan on spending a lot of time on the road or in the RV, a larger RV with more amenities may be fitting. But, if the RV is more for simply comfortable transportation to take you to a destination, it may make more sense to take a smaller and/or less costly RV.
Pick The Right Campground – Some campgrounds are fit with many amenities, such as pools, tennis courts, live music, and more. Pick a campground that suits the trip you are planning. Some people like to “boondock,” or camp in an RV without hooking up to electric, water, or sewer systems, so, they don’t need to find a campground that provides these things. Others prefer to have these systems. Most standard campgrounds have electric, water, and sewer systems, but not all have the formerly mentioned pools or tennis courts. Usually, campgrounds with more amenities cost more. State parks and Army Corp campgrounds are known to be less expensive. Price, location, and amenities are the three biggest things to take into account when deciding on which campground would best suit your trip.
Create An Outline Beforehand – Creating a schedule or at least an outline before setting off on your trip can help you stay more organized and stay on track so that you are sure to hit everything you want to do. It is nice to build extra time into the schedule for any spontaneous excursions or cool places or activities you come across.
Decide How Long You Will Drive Per Day – Creating at least a loose schedule is also beneficial because it helps you know how long you will have to drive per day to reach your destination or different excursions. Take into account that driving is tiring, so make sure you get enough rest so that you have enough energy to enjoy your trip.
Gas – The size of RVs can make it somewhat of a challenge to get gas. Before traveling, it can be beneficial to scope out gas stations that would be accommodating to the big vessel. Truck stops are a good place to go as they are made for larger rigs.
It is our goal to ensure that you have the most enjoyable trips you can in our RVs. Planning these few things ahead of time can make a big difference, creating less stress on the road, and in turn more time to enjoy. For more information, go to https://rvforamerica.com.
