RV TRAVEL TIPS
- If you aren’t traveling full-time, just look for the basic necessities in an RV and go as small as you can for ease of travel because you will be spending your time outside and doing things
- Look to state and national parks if you want more of a camping experience, whereas if they have a pool, it is probably more of a resort feel
- Be sure to look at the size of the RV sites (60×80 +) to see how much space you will have between you and your neighbors
- Boondocking / Business Land Management — no hook ups are available and there isn’t anyone nearby
- Investigate what types of hook ups are available — with a sewer hook up you can shower, go to the bathroom, etc.; whereas an electric only hook up will be more limiting
- When it comes to packing, don’t overdo it. Bring things that are easy to grill and eat outside. Frozen veggies last longer but fridges/freezers are small so keep that in mind when you are shopping.
- Other good things to have include outdoor chairs, outdoor games/balls, flashlights and other things to keep kids occupied
- When planning your trip, be prepared that getting set up and situated can be very tiring and time consuming so plan on spending at least two nights in each location
- If possible, towing a car makes it easier to see more of the sights without moving the camper/RV
- If you are traveling during prime season, book your camping spot in advance. National parks may book up a year in advance
