Are you an RV owner? If you are, you may enjoy the freedom of being able to come and go as you please. This is a nice luxury that many motor home renters do not have. You may be interested in taking a last minute RV trip. If so, the following tips may be able to help.
Mapping out your route.
it is important to know where you will be going. Of course, you can be spontaneous along the way, like by taking a side trip, but having an intended route planned out is ideal for safety, security, and comfort. It can also help to prevent you from getting lost when you are unsure of your surroundings. Speaking of which, be sure to pack a map or having a GPS installed in your motor home.
Make all needed reservations. This is particularly important during peak motor home travel times, such as spring and summer. You will not want to assume that all RV parks and public campgrounds have available spots. Once you have a destination in mind, you can quickly examine your options, in terms of RV parks or public campgrounds, online. Get the contact information and place a call to make reservations or at least see if they are needed.
Let someone know that you are leaving.
Notifying friends or family members of your travels is probably the last thing on your mind, but it is still something that you should do. Let those that you know, especially those who will notice if you are gone, when you will be leaving, where your intended destination is, how to get a hold of you, as well as when you can expect to return.
Even if you intend to leave in a few hours, a checklist is an important preparation step when traveling by RV. A traveling by RV camping checklist does not have to take hours to make. Simply write down the items that you need to bring, such as food, clothing, and toiletries. Then, check off the items as you pack them in your bags or place them in your RV.
In keeping with making sure you have all needed supplies, do a quick run through of your RV at the last minute. This will help you determine if you are missing anything of great importance.
The above mentioned tips are just a few of the many that can help you prepare for a last minute RV trip. Proper preparation, even for last minute trips, is not only important for your safety, but for overall enjoyment as well.
