Having an RV is great, but it can also be difficult to find places to go. Especially if you are new to having a recreational vehicle, and don’t have friends to go with, you’re on your own. Here are some great thoughts about places to go with your RV.
The best RV-friendly places have camping options to accommodate your RV. Many places have RV-friendly camping within a 1-2 hour drive. This could be a beach campsite, along a lake or river, or in the mountains.
Check with your local sporting goods store and see if there are any great places nearby that would be great for your RV.
See the National Parks
Going to the National Park system is a great use of your RV. Most national parks have plenty of camping, and most have RV-hookups that you can use as well. It is important to note that many of the popular campsites require reservations, while others are first-come, first-serve. Check in advance before driving for hours to get to a park, only to discover it’s full.
The most popular parks always surround geological wonders, while at the same time having lots of outdoor activities. Here are some of the most popular:
- The Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona
- The Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado
- Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming
- Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky
Things to Consider
When travelling to these national parks or other locations, it is important that you are prepared for your travels. This means not only checking in advance before going, but making sure that you have simple caravan insurance that isn’t lapsed. For many people, not driving their RVs consistently makes them forget to renew their insurance, or even do proper maintenance on their vehicles.
If you haven’t traveled in your RV in a while, check your records, make sure everything is updated, and maybe even take your RV to your mechanic to get it checked out. The last thing you want is to break down in the middle of no-where.
