So you have a new diesel RV. Do you know what you’re going to do with it? Did you purchase it for a specific trip? Did you purchase it because the neighbor has one? Did you purchase it because your brother bought one? Did you purchase it because your wife requested one for the upcoming family road trip?
Regardless of your reasons for purchasing, you can find many, many reasons for loving your new diesel RV. The Diesel RV is a popular choice for those looking for solid power and extensive design options and features. Most RV buyers discover that the problem isn’t finding RVs that will suit their needs; it’s more like pinpointing which options (of the many, many out there) are best suited to their needs. But once you’ve figured it out and you’ve got your new diesel RV or motorhome parked in front of your house…what are you going to do with it?
We recommend that the first trip you take is a day trip. Do something local that you’ve always meant to do, but never actually made happen. Do you live near a sporting arena? Head out to a tailgate party. You’ll fit right in. Do you live near a popular camping ground? Drive out and set up for the day and take your family or a group of friends on a hike. Do you live near a lake or other fishing hole? Take your new RV out equipped with the makings for the most fantastic picnic lunch ever and pretend you care if you catch fish while you actually sit back and enjoy the gorgeous fall weather and the knowledge that you’ll have a fabulous lunch whether the fish are biting or not.
After you’ve completed your first short trip you can go ahead and plan a bit of a longer trip. Aim for a couple days. This will keep you in areas that aren’t too unfamiliar yet you’ll feel like you’re getting a little adventurous at the same time. Get online and see if there is a national park, national monument or some other famous attraction in your state that you have never seen. Kill two birds with one stone by getting out on a bit of a “longer trek” in your diesel RV or motorhome AND see one of the “must sees” in your area.
After completing a day trip and a short trip, you’ll be well aware of the possibilities that your new diesel RV offers. And you’ll be less likely to squander your new purchase through lack of use. You wouldn’t want that. You’d be missing out on so much fun!
