Life On the Road 101
While each road trip is highly individual, here is a loose outline of steps you should take to prepare for your road trip.
- Choose your destination. There are so many good places to road trip in the United States that it can be difficult to choose a destination. If you’re planning a long-haul trip, you can select multiple destinations to satisfy your wanderlust.
- Find and book your campsites along the way. There’s nothing more frustrating than arriving at a campsite and discovering that all the spots are in use. To avoid this stress, make sure that you book your campsites ahead of time.
- Do a test run to get the hang of your rig. Load your RV, find where to put things, and get familiar with the layout, feel, and space of your RV.
- Make a packing list. RV checklists are one of the handiest tools in ensuring that no essentials are left behind as you embark on your great road-tripping adventure.
- Practice driving your RV. If you’re new to handling large vehicles, you may want to take your rig out for a test drive to maximize your confidence on the road.
- Have your RV inspected prior to embarking on your adventure. There are few things more frustrating than having your trip interrupted by vehicle trouble. To avoid this, make sure that you have an RV mechanic inspect your vehicle ahead of time.
- Make sure you have a place for everything. Organization is key when you’re living in a tiny space, so make sure you stock up on organizational furniture and make sure to always put things back where they belong.
- Give yourself wiggle room in your timetable. Things don’t always go as planned on the road, which is why being flexible is key. Make sure that you give yourself a bit of extra time just in case you have to stop at a mechanic or get lost along the way.
