Top 5 Things for RV Newbies to Note
So you bought a new RV…. now what? We won’t lie—there’s quite a lot to learn if you’re new to this outdoor lifestyle.
RVing as a rookie can be overwhelming, but don’t worry! We’re here to help show you the ropes.
For starters, we have a ton of great resources for new RVers to find the RV that’s the perfect match and planning your RV route. We also have plenty of blog posts to read at your leisure (we’ve linked a few throughout this blog)!
Let’s make the learning curve a little easier, so you can hit the road prepared. Here are our top five things for newbies to note…
Nail your packing technique
There are a few essentials you just can’t forget – like lots of layers and food that’s easy to prep on the road. From there, it’s easy to pick up any forgotten items you realize you need.
Plan meals ahead of time
Cooking on the road can be tricky if you haven’t quite mastered the craft. If you’re new to RV living, we suggest doing some meal prep before you head out on your RV trip.
Prepare for RVing with animals
Our four-legged family members have their own list of essentials to pack on your next RV trip.
Finally, you need to consider your destination when prepping paws for the road. There’s even more to consider if you’re crossing south of the border with your pets.
Choose your dream destination
The ultimate question: Where will you go for your first RV trip?!
Do you want to drive to the beach or the mountains? Alberta has some pretty spectacular summits! But you need to see the Maritimes at least once in your life, too. Regardless of the destination, you’ll want to find a campsite the whole family loves – like these campgrounds with pools and playgrounds!
Why not make a road trip of your RV vacation? Choose a route that promises plenty of Wildhood adventures!
Embrace small-spaced living
Perhaps the biggest adjustment to the RV lifestyle is the transition to small-spaced living. You’ll want to balance organization/storage hacks to make the most of your indoor space with extra cozy design choices so your home-sweet-home on wheels really feels like home.
Traveling full-time with your partner? This one is definitely worth the read!
Wherever your new RV takes you and whomever you bring, you’ll want to be a good camper and be a good neighbour!
