So, you’d like to take a vacation in your travel trailer? But, you’ve already taken a salary cut, and the cost of gasoline is high. Did you know that your travel trailer can help you save money on your vacation?
First, do the maintenance on your travel trailer. Tune up your engine, and replace worn spark plugs. Check to see that your tires are properly inflated for good mileage. Fill up your tank in the cool of the day—early morning, or evening work.
Make plans to camp near home, and stay at the same place for the entire vacation. You’ll use less gas, and you will probably be better rested as well. Take the bare necessities with you. The lighter the load, the less gasoline you need to pull your travel trailer.
Stay mellow on the road. Follow the speed limits, and drive at steady speeds. Turn the engine off when you take a break, or are stuck sitting in traffic. Raise the temperature of the air conditioning, and travel in off peak hours to use less gas.
Lastly, have your directions and maps planned and handy. It will save time and gas if you don’t have to retrace your path back to where you made a wrong turn. Have fun and save money. That’s a winning combination!
