Traveling in a recreational vehicle offers many benefits for those seeking adventure with the family in an affordable an exciting way. RV travel is one of the best ways to see the world, and once you’ve got the hang of it, you won’t have it any other way. Here are some essential things to do and bring on the road for those ready to hit the pavement in their RV:
Make a Checklist
Put together a checklist of everything you may need for your traveling adventures. This includes a list of what you will need if you are setting up camp at an RV campground (i.e. all campground connections, making sure your RV is level, and how to properly hook up your water, gas and electric systems. Also include on the checklist things you won’t want to forget while on the road, include food, music and other necessities for your traveling.
Map Out Your Destinations
RV travel is all about the freedom of the open road to go wherever you want on your own time. However, it does help to have at least some sort of travel plan in place. The more you know about where you’re headed and how to get there, the easier it will be to find some of the most interesting sights you can check out on your way there. Bring the correct road maps and a GPS system to help you navigate. This is especially important if you’re new to RV travel. Design the route you want to take so it will be easier to do spur-of-the-moment stops as you see them pop up.
Every RV traveler should have a RV-specific first-aid kit. Always make sure it is fully stocked and kept in an outside storage compartment. It should include basic medical supplies such as bandages, ointment, pain relievers, insect repellant, scissors, and an emergency supply of must-have medications. Some extras you should have in your RV are a flashlight, paper and pens, a disposable camera, and an extra cell phone charger.
Traveling With Children
If you are traveling with children, always make sure to leave some time aside for outdoor activities while traveling. Kids can get a bit restless in an RV, no matter how roomy it may be. Also try your best to give each child their own space in the RV where they can put their own toys, games and personal stuff.
When you are at an RV campground, it’s very likely that there will be other children there. Walk around the campground with your child and allow them the opportunity to make some friends to play with while you are there.
