Taking a road trip or camping trip in an RV or travel trailer will be one of the most fun and relaxing family vacations you’ll ever embark on. It’s a superb opportunity to forge great memories and there’s just nothing quite like taking a trip in an RV compared to traveling in a car or staying in a hotel.
Here are the top tips for taking your family on a fun RV vacation:
Find An RV Or Travel Trailer
In order to travel in an RV or travel trailer, you need to find one to begin with, right? Regardless of whether you choose to buy or rent an RV, they come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes.
Be sure you select an RV that’s in good condition and has enough room for your family to sleep, eat, and hang out in. Outdoorsy.com provides an excellent overview of the best basic types of travel trailers available for you to choose from.
Write A Checklist Of Necessities
Write out a checklist of items you need to pack before embarking on your family RV trip. Examples of items that must be included on your list include each of the following: a cutting board, kitchen knife, aluminum foil, eating utensils, paper plates, plastic cups, zip loc bags, one sleeping bag and pillow per family member, glow sticks and flashlights, spare blanket, an awning (if your RV does not already have one), an outdoor rug, and portable chairs for staying outside.
Find Outdoor Activities To Do
A majority of the time you spend on your RV trip should be outside of the RV rather than inside of it. To this end, bring a few outdoor games and activities that your kids will enjoy, or travel to a destination where such activities already exist.
Bring A Second Form Of Transportation
Regardless of whether it’s motorcycles or an ATV in a trailer hooked to the back of your RV, a car, or simply bicycles, a second form of transportation is not something you will want to overlook.
Be Ready To Clean The RV
Staying in an RV or travel trailer is not the same thing as staying in a hotel. It’s up to you to ensure that the RV remains clean on the inside and outside. If you rent an RV in particular and return it dirty, you will be charged a rather large fee.
Be sure to bring plenty of cleaning products with you on your trip and don’t light your campfire directly next to the RV, or else it will begin to smell of smoke.
