I’m a pretty experienced road tripper, having rented and driven cars in many parts of the world, but we have yet to experience an RV trip. However, we shall be rectifying that this August, when we have a confirmed booking for an RV for a week long trip.
As it is clear that we aren’t alone in seeking tips, advice and needing help or warnings of things to avoid, I thought I’d start a topic featuring nothing more than all kinds of tips on purely the RV topic.
Aspects that could be of interest and help to novices may cover such considerations as:
1 - whether to go down the RV route in the first place
2 – how to find and rent the RV
3 – how different are RVs to drive from cars
4 – how to find and evaluate RV parks, and what to expect in them
5 – practical suggestions for housekeeping in your RV
6 – how to survive camping without hook-ups
7 – additional things to buy or bring with you to enhance RV life
I’m sure there are plenty more categories too.
While most of this advice is probably going to apply more specifically to the USA, many of the tips will be applicable to other countries where renting RVs to get around the wide open spaces is also popular, such as Canada, New Zealand and Australia.
Once all you experts out there have started to share your tips, hopefully the Road Trip forum Destination Experts might arrange to add this topic to the Top Questions section.
Thanks for sharing your tips.
