Motorhome Travel Tips

Whether you are new to RV camping or a veteran, choosing the right motorhome campsite is very important.

When choosing a campsite, some things to consider are the vehicles for which they cater. For example, Class A motorized or Class C motorized motorhomes, fifth wheel trailers, travel trailers or folding camping trailers all have differing needs.

Does the campsite you’re reviewing at have the amenities you’re looking for? Some facilities offer a pool, lake, Internet access, hiking trails, planned activities for kids and more; these services may interest some campers but may not appeal to others.

Some sites offer just basic lodging with power, water and sewage connections. It’s a good idea to find out what your perspective campsite offers. You should only pay for the services you will actually use.

Another point to consider is if they allow pets? This may sound irrelevant to most RV owners but it’s an important consideration if you’re a pet owner. As an RV owner, you may not think about this because you’re not renting a hotel room—you’re merely parking your motorhome at the campsite. You need to realize most RV campsites have strict rules about allowing pets on their grounds—especially if you find this out after driving twelve hours and paying a non-refundable deposit!

So whether you’re driving a used motorhome you recently purchased or you’re towing your reliable travel trailer, RV camping can be a great family activity if you choose your campsite carefully.
