    Tips for Planning an RV Camping Trip

    Last updated 4 days ago

    Once you purchase a new RV or travel trailer, the entire country will be at your disposal. That’s because you can drive anywhere you want while still enjoying the comforts of home. But before you hit the road, there are some things you need to do to ensure that your trip is a success. Here are some tips for planning an RV camping trip, courtesy of your friends here at Nichols RV in Dallas.

    Map Your Route

    There’s something alluring about the idea of hitting the road and going wherever the wind takes you, but it is much smarter (and much more affordable) to carefully map your route when traveling in an RV or pulling a travel trailer. By mapping your route, you can budget for gas, map out rest stops, and avoid dangerous roads.

    Make Reservations

    If you will be staying in state parks and camp sites, make reservations at least one month in advance. You can sometimes get lucky and find a vacant campsite, but reservations are highly recommended during the summer months when thousands of travelers will be battling for sites all around the country.

    Look at the Weather

    Even though it’s quite warm in Dallas, look at the weather report for the city or destination you are traveling to. You may be surprised to learn that a lot of the country gets quite cold during the summer months, especially at high elevations. Once you study the weather, make sure you and your family pack accordingly to stay comfortable.

    Whether you’re looking for a pop-up trailer or a full-sized motorhome, there are some essential amenities to look for when shopping for a new RV. First of all, make sure your travel trailer or motorhome comes with a working toilet and sink. A furnace and air conditioner will keep you comfortable no matter which season you travel. Also look for some sort of range and countertop so that you can prepare meals while on the road.
