Regardless of whether you’re visiting relatives, going to sightsee some neat places, or just going on vacation, RV road trips are great times to forge new memories. But if you’ve ever gone on an RV road trip before, then you know they can be a hassle. From packing your gear to finding something for your kids to, the actual trip itself can be exhausting.
Fortunately, you don’t have to let your next RV trip overwhelm you. In this article, we’re going to go over some effective tips you can use to ensure that your next road trip goes by smoothly and keeps your kids happy and your stress levels down.
Here are the top tips for taking your family on an RV road trip:
Pack Less, Not More
The first tip is to pack less things rather than more, regardless of how long your trip is going to be. Realistically, just three shirts and two pairs of pants per person are all you’re going to need so long as you do laundry at RV parks or hotels.
The less stuff you bring with you, the less chaotic things will be because you have fewer items to worry about. Specifically, focus on bringing clothing items that don’t show stains or dirt very well, such as darker clothes.
Bring Your Children’s Favourite Snacks
If there’s one way to keep kids happy on the road, it’s to bring their favourite snacks. Many parents don’t like to bring messy snacks on RV trips because the last thing they want is for their nice RV interior to get stained.
RV interiors are indeed nice these days according to Outdoorsy.com, but there are ways you can decrease the risk of a mess simply by having your kids only eat in the kitchen area during stops and also having them wash their hands before moving through the rest of the RV.
Bring Toys and Gadgets
One of the best methods to keep smaller children happy on an RV road trip is to buy them a toy they’ve always wanted right before the trip. For teens and older kids, you’re going to need to let them bring gadgets such as mobile devices or portable DVD players with them.
Plan Out Your Stops
You should have your RV trip planned out well in advance, and that includes knowing each of your destinations and stops along the way. Not only do you need to know which RV parks you’ll be staying at, you also need to know which specific towns, landmarks, historical sites, and gas stations you’re going to be stopping at en route as well.
Knowing where and when you’ll be stopping will also help keep things less chaotic before you’ll always know exactly where you need to go and when you’re going to get there.
Taking Your Family On An RV Road Trip
By applying the tips and strategies you have just learned, your next RV road trip will be much more fun and smooth sailing than it would have been otherwise.
