The summer sun is shining, and you and your Class A RV family is eager to hit the road. Have you selected your destination yet? Will you be taking your Class A motor home to the mountains for hiking and camping, or will you be traveling south to the beach? No matter where you choose to drive your Class A RV, the tips listed below will help you plan and organize your trip.
1. Before you leave for vacation in your Class A RV, you will want to first make sure that you have the map routed out. Either go online and look for a good map on the internet or purchase one from your local book store. You can keep the map on hand in your Class A RV for reference. Some top recommendations are Rand McNally, AAA, and Michellen. Many people find it helpful to have a hard copy of their directions, in addition to their GPS system.
2. Plan your Class A RV campground stops ahead of time. There are helpful tools online, such as the National Park website, that can guide you to high-quality camping areas for you to park your Class A RV. It helps for you to call ahead so that you can both guarantee a spot for your Class A RV and ask any necessary questions that you may have. You may want to see if there are hook ups for your RV, see if pets are welcome, or ask about free wifi.
3. Think about your menu for dining ahead of time. You can save money when traveling in a motor home because you have the opportunity to plan ahead and cook while on the road, rather than stopping to eat out during the entire trip. There are excellent, easy to use recipes that can be followed when RVing. You can purchase groceries prior to leaving and/or you can shop for fresh veggies at the area farmers markets.
4. Pack knowing that you will have limited storage and space when on the road. Check the weather of the locations that you will be traveling to and pack accordingly. Keep basics on hand that can be used in versatile ways. It helps to make a check list for you and everyone in your travel trailer or motorhome.
5. Keep an emergency kit for first aid necessities on board the motor home. Before you hit the road, make sure the kit has been restocked from the last vacation. Also, keep a detailed list of any medications that someone may be taking and get all of your prescriptions filled prior to leaving town.
These tips are to help make your planning easier. By following them, you will be sure to enjoy the free time on the road knowing that you have prepared your recreational vehicle trip wisely.
