When you head off into the sunrise (or sunset) on your first RV trip, you’ve just enrolled in RV school. There’s so much to learn and so many things you never thought of, and some you’ll wish you knew before setting out on the road.
Your first trips will bring both challenges and opportunities of all kinds. Here are a few things to consider:
Not only do you need to plan where to go, but how and also what will you do when you get there?
Some people create a travel budget ahead of time to save the necessary money. Some also travel slowly, staying in one place longer, getting a long-stay discount and using less fuel. One thing is sure: you want to avoid finding yourself out of money before the end of your journey.
One thing you may learn the hard way: RV travel is hard on your vehicle. Whether you’re talking about the towing vehicle, the trailer, the motorhome, or the towed vehicle, all those moving parts must be prepared for the trip.
Differing tastes, space, budgets, and plans define what you pack. On our way home from each trip, we review what we brought (but shouldn’t have) and what we didn’t bring (but should have).
One thing to remember, especially when traveling with a family: it will always take longer than driving a car. Bring along plenty of games and diversions for the kids.
You’ll find more things to do and more places to go, but you’ll also find it’s harder to find a good gas station, that you can’t drive as fast, and that you may have to stop earlier (or later) than you wish because the only RV park you can use is inconveniently located.
Of course, this is not the case with Woodland Creek RV Park, because this 5-star park is not only easy to find; it’s also packed with amenities.
