It’s about that time of the year to pull your RV out of storage, pack your friends and hit the open road!
There’s nothing quite like wind blowing through your hair as you cruise down Route 66 in your RV. Or facing the open road and getting lost in thought with the surrounding scenery. There’s also something amazing about road trips that invoke a sense of freedom and excitement. It’s also a great way to gain a new perspective and a deeper appreciation of oneself. So before we dive right into the trip, there are a few things to consider before we set our sights on the open road. As most RV travelers would say, “preparation is key to any successful road trip.” So to ensure a memorable road trip, there are a few things to note: the plan, the RV, the food, and the boredom busters.
The Plan – There are typically two types of road trip plans: the detailed plan and the vague plan. Depending on whichever plan you’re looking to partake, it’s important that everyone onboard has the same expectation. You wouldn’t want unnecessary drama to abrupt during the trip. An example of a detailed plan consists of having a set schedule for both departure and arrival along with proper campsite reservations booked far in advance. An example of a vague plan would consist of multiple spontaneous pit stops along the trip. In short, a vague plan is basically winging it as you go with the destination in mind.
The RV – A successful road trip is only as good as your RV. So before you set your sights on the open road, be sure to double check the condition of your rig. What I mean by this is to check the health of your RV before you set out on your adventure. Keep in mind; you’re most likely going to put in a couple hundred miles on your RV if not more. So definitely consider double checking your engine oil, tire pressure, lights, battery, and brakes to name a few. In case of a flat tire or an unexpected engine occurrence, always make sure you have a functioning spare tire, jumper cables, and tools if you know your way around an engine.
The Food – Ah yes! The most important part of the entire trip! Depending on the number of passengers, you’re already looking at a pretty packed RV. When an RV has limited storage space like this, it’s going to take a certain level of creativity to figure out additional storage space. Fortunately, there are easy storage hacks you can do to maximize your space. If you got soda cans or canned foods, one of the best methods save space is to use storage bins or corrals to help uniformly store circular items. Another iffy storage hack is to use the inside of cabinet doors to hang spices or small lightweight items.
The Boredom Busters – Being together in a confined space for hours on end will eventually drive you mad! So brace yourselves for boredom! But don’t worry you won’t be suffering from boredom alone, whether it’s with friends or family you’re all going to be bored of out your minds together! Rather than going mad together, why not play the singing game! It’s where one person starts singing the first line of the song and the next person has to continue it! Another game is the movie game, where one person names an actor or actress and the next person has to name a movie they were in.
