Tips for Easy RV Travel
Before we dive into the golf courses, let’s talk about the safety of your travel first.
Driving an RV means being prepared for the open road. If you are new to driving an RV, take it on a test drive on the streets you know to avoid sticky situations in unknown areas. Try taking wide turns, tight turns, and parking away from and around other vehicles. Use a large parking lot like Wal-Mart to practice turns.
Another tip, Wal-Mart is one of the friendliest businesses in the world for RV’s and commercial vehicles. If you can’t find an RV park and need a place to park overnight, consider stopping in one of these lots.
Avoid carrying excessive water. Water is hefty, and transporting it from place to place will severely hinder your gas mileage. Instead, bring only the right amount of water. Another thing to consider in planning your route: if you will be in a remote area for long periods of time, you should find a place to stock up on water before your journey into a secluded area.
Pack lighter to avoid clutter and shifting items. Your new RV might have nooks and crannies instead, but it doesn’t mean you should overpack. Like water, the heavier you carry in your RV, the heavier it becomes dragging your gas mileage.
Also, more items mean there is a higher potential to shift and fall while you travel. You can always stock up on food at your location or in a Wal-Mart overnight. Always remember to pack enough medication to last for several days after you plan on visiting another pharmacy or returning home.
