Whether you’re planning an RV getaway for a weekend, a couple of weeks, or longer, you’ll want to keep a few things in mind. Here are a few tips and tricks to follow for your upcoming trip.
This may be a given if you’re a seasoned RVer, but people new to RVing don’t always think of the details. One of the most important considerations — aside from location, cost, and amenities — is the size limit at the campground. You don’t want to arrive at the campsite and realize your RV is too big for the parking space.
You should also make sure your RV’s electrical system is compatible with the camp’s amp hookup. For example, if your RV has a 50-amp cord and the campground only has a 30-amp hookup, you’ll need to bring a 50-amp to 30-amp adapter.
If you’re traveling to a popular campground, it’s a good idea to book your spot at least six months in advance. This is especially true if you’re heading out on a long weekend. Do you want to do a scheduled event like a guided tour? You may want to book that in advance, too. Call the organization or check its website to find out how fast the event fills up.
You’ve probably planned routes for road trips before, but an RV differs from a regular vehicle. You’ll need to account for things like low-clearance bridges and look for areas that offer free overnight parking. Thankfully, there are plenty of digital tools that make it easy to plan your route, find roadside attractions, estimate the cost of your trip, find the cheapest gas stations, and more.
