Most of us enjoy getting out of the cold winters and enjoy more sunshine. The best way to go about this? Head south of course! Every year, a huge number of RV snowbirds head south to escape rough winters and enjoy the sunshine and warmth of the southern states, and really, we can’t blame them. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy snowbird living?
Unfortunately, because it is popular to enjoy winter RV living in the south, it takes a little planning to get there and have the trip meet your expectations. Here are our 8 RV travel tips to consider before heading south for the winter with the other RV snowbirds.
If you are not going it alone, make sure your family is part of the planning. That also means pets. Kids will need regular breaks from driving and chance to run around, pets will need potty breaks and walks, and those with medical conditions might have special needs. Everyone who will be RVing with you will have an impact on what you need to pack, where you can stay, and even how long it takes you to get to your destination.
If you are leaving family behind, i.e. they don’t live with you anymore, share your plans and intended places of stay. Keeping your family in the loop of where you plan on being is one more layer of safety.
