If you’ve ever experienced an RV holiday, the adventure is only just beginning. An RV holiday does require a little bit of planning but it can certainly be worth it. Below we are going to have a look at some of the planning you need to consider:
Find The Right RV
There is plenty of choices when it comes to an RV. Whether you look for a class a diesel rv for sale, a small 2 man RV or one to fit a large family, you are really spoilt for choice. Have a think about what you would like to have inside too, some will extend out on the side to give you a huge kitchen and living space.
Ideally, you pack your clothes in a soft bag rather than a solid suitcase and then ideally bring a small backpack for days out. Make sure you research what the weather is going to like, include things like walking shoes, wellies, sun cream, insect repellent, and layers.
It’s also a good idea to pack some indoor shoes or plenty of socks, hats, swimwear, beach towels, etc as you never know where an RV holiday is going to take you.
It’s going to depend massively on the type of holiday you’re planning, but having a map, spare batteries, a few games, phone chargers, bikes, kayaks, etc are all great pieces of equipment to bring along on an RV holiday. RV’s have excellent storage for equipment, some of them even have a little garage for you pack and store things like your suitcase, barbeque essentials, and your bikes. Some also have a bike rack on the back to enable you to use the space for something else.
On The Move
Like you would with any other holiday it’s a good idea to think about where you are going to stay in advance. Although an RV holiday does give you the freedom to stay as long as you want in some destination and less in others, it’s still best to have a rough idea. Some of the places that accept RVs need you to book in advance rather than just show up, so if there is anywhere, in particular, you want to stay make sure you research this before you set off. It’s also a good idea to prebook any ferries that you are going to need to use.
If you’re not familiar with where you are heading it’s a good idea to take some guides with you, or research you destination online, this way you won’t look back later and regret the things you’ve missed, You can find some hidden gems when taking a driving holiday. Mark out any fuel stations on your routes, this way you won’t be left hoping you come by one on the road if you know exactly where you’re next filling up point is, you will much more comfortable and relaxed.
