Vacation is a time to enjoy and nothing can be better than enjoying it with your family. Of all the types of vacation touring in a RV is very enjoyable. You can select some scenic drives, camp in RV parks in exotic locations and then start for a new destination the next day. It’s an experience that you can only get once you actually hit the roads. Here are a few suggestions for a great RV vacation.
A problem that the first timers often face is trying to see everything in the available time. This is due to the fact that they can see many things without wasting time on checking in and out of hotels. But that is not a good approach. If you want to enjoy RVing, then limit your driving to 4 to 6 hours a day. If you are vacationing with children, make sure that they have enough activities to do on the RV. Board games, fun games, videos, etc. keeps them busy and happy. Live on camp grounds that have enough scope of activity for the whole family, especially the children.
Cooking on a RV is not the same as cooking in a kitchen. So make sure you keep the cooking simple. If you want to have some great food on a RV vacation, make sure that you eat out or order some prepared food. When the whole family participates in cooking, the fun continues.
Another common mistake the people often do is overloading the RV. Be very careful about it as often overloaded RVs meet with accidents. The weight distribution should be made equally on all parts of the RV. If you are a first timer, take the help of experienced friends. You should also check the vehicle thoroughly. For example, check the tires, belts and hoses, the condition of the fire extinguishers, etc. When driving, make sure that you know the speed limit that you should follow for traveling safely. Keep in mind that that your motor home is not a Ferrari and it is designed to be slow.
Finally, remember that you are not the only one camping on a RV campground. So follow the rules of the ground strictly and make the campsite enjoyable for all those camping on it.
