It really doesn’t matter how many or how few RV road trips you’ve been on, because there are always things you can do to make your next trip even better.
And if you’ve never gone on an RV trip at all before, there are definitely some tips that you’ll want to know.
Here are some tips you need to know for your next RV road trip:
Stock Up On Supplies
There are a variety of supplies and equipment that you will need to stock up on in your RV before you leave: sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, toilet paper, paper towels, silverware, plates, pots and pans, bug spray, sunscreen, towels, and water jugs to name a few things.
Really, whatever you feel you need to bring is what you need to bring, but you also can’t neglect the standard ordinary items either. The best approach will be to create a checklist to confirm you remember everything.
Bringing A Normal Car Wouldn’t Hurt
At the very least, it’s not a bad idea to bring a normal car such as an SUV as well, something that you could either hook up to the back of the RV to tow along or otherwise have someone else in the trip follow you with.
The main reason to bring a smaller car along is so it’s easier to travel around the area (such as visiting nearby landmarks or towns) after you park your RV. Alternatively, you could bring an ATV or UTV too.
Consider A Nicer RV Park
RV parks can vary in price greatly, from as low as $10 a night to as high as $50. Obviously the nicer the park, the more expensive it’s going to be.
If your budget allows it, a more expensive but nicer RV park would be the more preferable option because you’ll definitely have access to electrical and water hookups, in addition to public restrooms, showers, hiking and biking trails, and access to lakes and rivers.
With those kinds of amenities, you’re bound to have an overall more pleasant experience on your trip (at the very least, running water and electricity are always good, right?).
Have Alternative Activities Planned
There’s probably an entire list of things that you want to do on your trip, but what if unforeseen circumstances (such as the weather) prevents you from doing some of them?
This is why you need to have alternative or backup activities planned out as well. If you can’t go on that bike ride one day, you could always play games inside your RV instead. No, it’s not going to be as fun or memorable, but at least you and the other members of your trip won’t be left sitting around doing nothing.
