Planning your next RV TripDreaming of warmer weather? It's not too early to plan your next RV trip!
We agree with RV owners that RVing is the vest way to travel. With everything you need on board, a comfortable place to rest and affordable campgrounds, it’s a great way to spend time with your family, explore and adventure! Here are some tips to consider when Planning your next RV Trip.
Outline Your Route
Do you want to take the scenic route, avoid paying tolls, or get to your destination quickly? Answering this question will help determine your stopping points and the places you plan to stay along the way. Be sure to consider time of year, winter RV trips are best done in the southern part of the country, whereas summer trips are more flexible.
Create Your Timeline
Once you know what route you plan to take, you should create a timeline. This outlines how far you’ll drive each day, the roadside attractions you want to stop and see, and the time of day you plan to arrive at your destinations. When you plan your RV camping timeline, don’t forget to leave room for fun stops so you to stretch your legs and sightsee along the way.
Build a Budget
When you have a budget in place, you can determine how often you’ll eat out, how many groceries to buy, and how much money you can place into an emergency fund in the event that something expensive breaks. This will also help regulate which campgrounds or RV parks you can afford to stay at along the way.
You should have a checklist for the food you need, the spare parts to have on board and everything in between. Though you can stop and get supplies as needed, save time and money by having everything to start with. Packing even the most obvious items can become overwhelming, and checklists will ensure that you have what you need, when you need it.
Pack in Stages
Instead of packing all at once, take a week to do it, tackling something new each day. For example, take one day to pack games and items to keep children entertained on the road. The next day, move on to kitchen supplies, so on and so forth. When you pack everything at once, you’re more likely to forget something important. Don’t forget to secure all your items, every bump and turn can send them for a ride!
Check Road and Weather Conditions
Check weather conditions on the day you leave for the RV trip, and make changes in your route and timeline if necessary. Each day before getting on the road, do a quick check to avoid any dangerous conditions.
