Imagine being able to go wherever you wanted, whenever you wanted, as long as you wanted. With an RV, the flexibility and freedom of the open road is all yours. There are no flights to catch or hotels to check into, just the open road and all of the possibilities in front of you. When you travel in an RV, you can stay in any one destination as long as you’d like—in fact, some people find the perfect spot and never leave! There are plenty of services available to help you live on the road most of the year if you’d prefer.

If you’ve already been on one or more RV trips, you know how much fun it can be to see the country inside a home on wheels. However, you are also probably familiar with the stress of traveling inside an RV or travel-trailer. Even if you are an RV veteran, there are some things you can do to make sure you have the best possible road trip. From creating a checklist to mapping out your route, here are some tips that will hopefully reduce the stress associated with planning an RV trip.
Research Tourist Destinations
Driving across the country in an RV isn’t like driving in a car. For one, an RV is much bigger and much costlier to operate. To keep your travel costs at a minimum, you should try to avoid any unexpected detours whenever possible. Before you head out on the road, research popular tourist destinations and make a list of everything you and your family want to see.
Plan Your Stops
Once you know where you are going, you can use mapping software (or good old pen and paper) to plan your stops along the way. This will help you plan your mileage and fuel consumption each day, so you can better budget your travel expenses.
Make an Inventory and Packing Checklist
Unless you are packing your RV for the first time, you probably have a decent amount of supplies inside. To help save money, and to make sure you only buy what you need, unpack and take an inventory of everything inside the RV. Once you know what you already have, you can determine what you need. Make sure to create a checklist so you can easily keep track of what you have and what is left to buy before you leave.
If your RV needs a bit of work before you head out on the road, bring it to Nichols RV Center. In addition to our new and used RVs, we also provide RV service and repair. Contact us online or call us at (888) 694-9534 to schedule a service or repair appointment for your RV, travel trailer, or fifth-wheel.

There are few experiences in life more enjoyable than camping in your RV. To get some tips for setting up camp with your new RV, check out the information below.
If this will be your first time camping with your RV, you may want to have a campground escort take you to your campsite. Generally, escorts have had years of experience and can take you to your campsite and help you get your vehicle parked. If a campground does not have an escort on duty and you still need assistance, you might be able to ask another camper for help.
The trickiest part of camping with an RV is parking the vehicle properly. To do this, figure out if you need to park the vehicle by pulling it in or backing it up into the site. Afterwards, park the vehicle carefully. Prior to parking, also make sure that your RV hookups, such as electrical and sewer connections, will not be blocked by plants or other items.
After you have parked the RV, put the emergency brake on, level the vehicle’s wheels with jacks, and place wedges against the tires to prevent the vehicle from rolling away. Once these steps are completed, plug the RV’s power cord into the campsite’s power supply and turn on the AC setting on your fridge to avoid wasting propane fuel. Finally, connect your RV to the drinking water and sewer hookups available at the campsite.
The last and most enjoyable step of setting up your RV camp is relaxing. Place your most comfortable camping chairs by the front of the RV on an outdoor carpet mat and sit down with your family for a few minutes. If you are hungry, you can also start the barbecue and cook a delicious meal while appreciating the great outdoors.
