RV Budget Hack: Reciprocal Memberships:
Obviously, you will want to get out and explore the places you visit. This is where reciprocal memberships come into play. There are a number of different reciprocal memberships out there, and each one will give you free or discounted admission to dozens (or even hundreds) of attractions.
Some of the best reciprocal memberships include the “America the Beautiful” national parks pass, the ASTC science museum reciprocal program, the AZA zoo and aquarium reciprocal program, the NARM museum reciprocal program, and the reciprocal benefits offered to some seasonal and annual pass holders at LEGOLAND, SeaWorld, Cedar Fair, and Six Flags parks.
Decide which reciprocal programs might be best for you and pick them up before your next trip!
Use Your RV Kitchen:
Another one of the benefits of traveling in an RV is the fact that you have a kitchen with you no matter where you end up parking. This can be an excellent money-saver, as it means you can cook your own delicious meals and avoid spending money at restaurants.
Don’t want to cook on vacation? In many cases, it’s actually totally possible to do all of your meal planning and meal prep before you hit the road, so you only have to throw everything into the Instant Pot or slow cooker once you arrive. This is actually easier than loading up to drive to the closest restaurant, and you’ll be able to enjoy your meal from the comfort of your home-on-wheels.
As you can see, there are many ways you can save money while RVing without sacrificing any of the fun or adventures you would normally have on an RVing trip. Ready to try your hand at setting up a RV budget? Why not start planning your next getaway today?
