Be Prepared for the Unexpected
Now that you have destinations picked, a route planned, and campsites booked, you’re well on your way to taking the perfect RV trip. The next step? Planning for the unexpected.
You never know what might go wrong while traveling, and this remains true even when you’re on an RV road trip. For this reason, you will want to have RV-specific roadside assistance and good RV insurance in place before you go. A well-padded savings account is also helpful, and a good attitude can go a long way if problems do arise.
At this point, your trip plan is coming together nicely and you’re prepared for emergencies. Now you need to start packing.
Start with an RV packing list such as this one. Pay attention to the weather report so you know what sorts of clothes to pack, and always bring hoodies and long pants for the evenings, even if you don’t think you’ll need them. Be sure to grab items such as medications that can’t be replaced while on the road, and go ahead and pack some simple games to keep everyone entertained.
However, do your best not to overpack, as an overloaded RV can be very dangerous to drive down the road.
