There is a first time for everything which means all RVers started their journey at one point. Just like any motor vehicle, there is a lot to keep in mind when investing/owning an RV. It’s beneficial to know how to encounter and go about an RV road trip. What are the steps you should take? What kinds of tools are important? The following points will allow you to be aware of what to expect on your first RV road trip.

Upon Arrival…

If you’re new to the RV lifestyle, you’ll notice that every RV park offers different sites and services. Figure out if your site can arrange an escort service to assist you in situating your RV. If you are satisfied with your rig space, be sure to disconnect any towed vehicles from your RV. Also, avoid any obstacles that may interfere with the capabilities of your RV. Particularly, potholes, road bumps, slopes, plants, or low hanging branches. Some RVs provide slide-outs or awning features. Make sure there is enough space for both features to operate properly throughout your RV road trip. It is especially important to know where the electrical and sewer hookups are located on your RV. And park your vehicle so that each hookup will meet with those of the site.

Settle Your Space

Once you park and situate your RV, it’s time to settle your space. If you are driving a motorhome, start off by putting your vehicle on the parking brake then chock the wheels. Slideouts will not function without this precaution. You can then connect power to your RV. Plug the electrical shore power cord into the campsite receptacle that matches the amperage requirements of your RV. Avoid the use of extension cords and resort to an electrical adapter. Overall, follow up by making sure your electricity is functioning. Particular RVs come with manual or electronic entry steps that can be pulled out for use. Be sure to pull in the steps before returning to your RV road trip.

Generate Water Supply

Use a potable RV water hose when connecting your RV to the water supply. Attach one end of it to the tank on the side of your RV and the other end to the campground’s water supply. If your campground does not provide water supply, invest in a water pump. As for sewer, wear gloves to attach the hose to a drain outlet. Ensure that you seal your connection securely. Invest in a sewer support system. This will allow for a smoother drainage process. To save LPG, set your heater to electric mode and assure that your heater tank is full of water.

After finally committing to the RV life, whether it be temporarily or long term, there’s much more to consider when choosing an RV than just traveling. If you’re going to haul this vehicle around with you wherever you go, factors such as comfort, style, and necessity are key. There are a variety of options when it comes to choosing an RV. Putting your priorities in place and recognizing what matters most to you will make the decision process much easier. When you combine great adventures with quality comfort, your travel experience will be even better. Here are some important factors to consider when choosing an RV.Before Choosing An RV

Drivability

Before purchasing any RV or motorhome, it is crucial that you are confident and able to drive it around. For some, bigger vehicles can be intimidating. Make sure you have enough experience on the road to handle an RV. This will ensure safety for all passengers tagging along. When traveling anywhere, traffic and sudden mishaps are bound to happen. Be prepared and expect to be confronted with a certain challenge on the road. Drivability encompasses being able to park, back out, turn, and maneuver through traffic without a problem. The bigger the vehicle, the more challenging it may be. But the more confident you are with these tactics, the easier it will be to get around.

Length and Weight

There are 3 different classes to explore when choosing an RV or motorhome: class A, class B, and class C. Each category offers its own set of luxuries. While class A is typically the largest of the three, ranging from 33-45 ft., class C is fairly similar (20-28 ft), and class B is the smallest and easiest to drive around. Length is a critical factor because there are certain roads (especially in state parks) that prohibit specific RV lengths. Be sure to note how to prevent these problems ahead of time to avoid misfortunes along the way. Length will also offer your family more living space, which then resorts to comfort. If  you plan on towing a car behind your RV or vice versa, weight is the most important factor. In order to successfully get around while towing your car or RV, be aware of the towing capacity on your vehicle.

Floor Plan

Aside from the physical benefits of choosing an RV, at the end of the day, the aspect that will mean most is comfort. With an RV that suits all your needs, you will be traveling and relaxing all at once. Choose a floor plan that meets the comforts of all attending. Whether you need a certain amount of sleeping, kitchen or entertainment space, put your priorities in place and match it up with the perfect floor plan. Consider all the necessary amenities needed for life such as bedding, bathrooms, kitchen appliances, and a washer and dryer. Prices will vary depending on the quality of your RV. There are numerous floor plans to choose from. As long as your levels of comfort are met, living in an RV will be a great experience.
