Tips for Successful RV Trailer Camping With Your Friends or Family

Hybrid campers

Did you know that every year, over 19 million Americans go camping in RVs? Not everyone is comfortable with sleeping on the hard ground of a forest in a tent, with sometimes only the back of a tree serving as a bathroom. RV trailers allow Americans to camp out in comfort while still enjoying the beauty of the outdoors.

Did you know that there are over 16,000 campgrounds, both publicly and privately owned, in the U.S.? Many of these areas are outfitted to allow for RVs in particular. If you are planning to rent or buy an RV to go camping with your family this year, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Three Tips for RV Sales

  • If you have little experience with an RV, you might want to start off with RV rentals. This can not only give you a taste of the experience, but also allow you to figure out which camper is the best size for you and your family.
  • If you plan on traveling a lot with your RV, then it makes more sense to have drivable or pickup campers. If you’re planning on mostly staying in one place, then larger towable campers might be a better choice.
  • Do adequate research on the different manufacturers and options for RV trailers. If if you’re interested in used campers, it’s worth noting that much like cars, different vehicles will age better. It’s good to know what the expected maintenance will be for any vehicle, as well as the estimated MPG.

Three Tips for Having a Great Camping Experience

  • Even if you have a kitchen, make the most of your camping experience and build a campfire. Remember that the conditions aren’t always as perfect as you’d hope, so be prepared for damp wood and bring a little lighter fluid just in case. Look up fun recipes for easy camp food — this can be a great way to get kids to try out new combinations.
  • Try and choose a campsite with water features or lakes. You don’t necessarily need a water park, but activities like fishing, canoeing, and even just swimming won’t be possible if there’s no body of water nearby. Popular camping areas will usually be able to provide you with things like canoes and fishing poles to rent.
  • Plan ahead so that you won’t need to drive 10 miles out of your way for a forgotten box of bandaids. Assume that you’ll need a few extra pairs of clothes, several games for downtime, a first aid kit, and rain gear for your camp adventure.
