RV’s are storming the nation as the new way to travel. You get all the comforts of home with all the excitement of the road. But whether you’re traveling across the country, or just a few towns away, there are some tips and tricks to keep yourself safe on your next RV road trip.
1. PLAN YOUR PATH
Before you head out on your next adventure, plan your route. Pull up Google Maps and check out the toll roads, construction zones, and rest stops. You can save your route and check it the day you leave. Google Maps posts real-time updates to their routes, so you’ll know if there are traffic jams, or areas to avoid.
Plus, you can decide whether you want to take highways, or a more scenic route. Just in case, you should print your directions, along with your final destination’s address. Keep a map with you as well, after all, you’re better safe than sorry!
2. REMEMBER THE DOUGH
Bringing some extra money is great for fun and necessity. If you see an awesome diner you want to check out, stop and have lunch. Remember, depending on where you are cash may be necessary. If you travel a lot, it might be a good idea to consider using traveler’s checks or credit cards instead of debit cards.
Credit cards are easier to manage if fraudulent activity occurs. Plus if it’s lost or stolen, you’re not without money (especially if you have some extra cash on hand). Just keep in mind that you should always be cautious when traveling with large amounts of money.
3. DOCS & SOCKS
Whether you’re going across country or across the state, remember to bring along important documents. This can include a driver’s license, passports, insurance cards (health and auto), birth certificates, social security cards, and vehicle registrations. These documents are especially important if you’re crossing any borders.
Okay, maybe this is silly, but don’t forget your socks. No one wants to wear shoes without socks! That makes for smelly feet, and smelly feet are extra dangerous in an RV.
4. PLANNED SPONTANEITY
Wait….what? It’s a good idea to research the different destinations and attractions along your route. Read reviews, check prices, look at their hours of operation. Nothing ruins a spotaneous trip to a museum like realizing it’s closed on Tuesday.
You don’t have to stop at every location, but make a quick “cheat sheet” of information about the different attractions along the way. That way the family can decide whether they want to see it as you get closer. Then you can also rule out that places that are too expensive or aren’t open on the days you’ll be in town. It’s called planned spontaneity (or at least it is now).
5. COMMON SENSE
Common sense is one of those things that’s actually not too common. Whatever you do, just make sure to put common sense first. But still remember to have fun! Be careful when stopping in parts of town that look unsafe. Don’t invite strangers into your RV and make sure to set ground rules, points of contact and emergency plans.
Whatever you do, and where ever the road takes you, make sure to have fun!
