Once your RV is packed and ready to go, you may think things are all set and there’s nothing to stop you from locking your door and firing up the motorhome’s engine.
Technically you would be right that there would be nothing to stop you from leaving at that point. Still, there are probably some things you may have neglected that would make your trip even better than it otherwise would have been.
Here are the top ways you can make your next RV road trip even better:
Bring Warm Clothing
If you’re traveling during the hot summer months and the weather forecast indicates that it will be hot and sunny for the duration of your trip, it may seem nonsensical to pack warm clothing, especially if storage space is limited.
Nonetheless, weather is notorious for being unpredictable, and it’s always better to be safe than sorry. For this reason, you’ll want to bring warm clothing such as pants, warm socks, boots, coats, and jackets with you just in case. Even if you never use any of it, at least you were prepared.
Make Your Screen Door Weatherproof
Keeping the RV door open and the screen door in place to prevent mosquitoes and flies from flying into the interior of your RV is something that many people like to do, especially when it’s hot outside.
Still, you’ll want to take some steps to weatherproof that screen door, which you can do via window plastic from virtually any hardware store. This way, the cool air will be prevented from entering your RV when it’s sunny outside and you want to keep the door open.
Schedule Your Meals
Being reliant on restaurants and fast food to keep your fed during your RV trip is not the best idea. Instead, you’ll want to prepare several of your own meals, and you can even schedule which means you’ll be eating for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on specific days.
It is definitely okay to eat out every once in a while on your trip, but if you’re going to be staying at a campground away from any towns or cities, preparing your own meals allows you to stay disconnected from the urbanized areas.
Have Backup Activities Planned
In the event the weather turns bad and ruins your opportunity to do a planned activity on a particular day, there’s no need to let that ruin your trip. Instead, have backup activities planned. For example, if you were going to go out on a hike but the pouring rain has prevented or delayed that, what games did you bring that you can enjoy inside of your tent?
Making Your Next RV Trip Better
While there may be no such thing as the ‘perfect’ RV camping trip, there is such a thing as an RV trip that’s better than it otherwise could have been. While not applying the tips that we have covered here today won’t ruin your trip by any means, applying them will certainly enhance it and make it better.
