RV Travel Tips for Beginners


So you want to hit the open road in an RV? In this case you need to know what you are doing. Even though it is a lot of fun, traveling in an RV is not the same as doing so in a car. Fortunately, once you take one RV trip you will be better equipped to do so many more times in the future. With each trip that you take you will learn more and more until you are eventually a pro. I'm happy that you read my tips and articles here at Allstays but hands on learning is always the best way in the end.

Here are three RV travel tips to keep in mind:

1. It all starts with the right rental. When renting an RV, make sure you consider size, cost, and mileage. There is nothing worse than renting an RV that cannot comfortably accommodate your entire group, or one that will break the bank. There are some major campgrounds out there, especially National Parks that do not easily accommodate big RVs.

2. Take it slow. Driving an RV is not the same as a car due to the larger size. It can seem intimidating at first but you will get used to it. There is no reason to take any risks. Instead, start slow and as you get a better feel for driving the RV you can begin to settle into a routine. I was a bit scared the first time I drove my RV but then I wound up being surprised at how fast I was completely comfortable behind the wheel.

3. Safety first. No matter what, make sure you are always thinking about safety. You are in a big vehicle, and there are many other people around you. If you are always thinking about the safety of you and everybody else on the road, you should not have any problems in this department.

These three RV travel tips are good for beginners. But even if you have experience traveling in an RV they can still help to make your trip an enjoyable one.
