RV Travel and Road Trip Tips

RV travel...get road trip tips. This year Celebrate 100 Years Of RV'ing: Stress-Free RV Traveling. Find out how to make your RV road trip stress free so you can enjoy your RV vacation.


(NAPSI)-This year marks the 100th anniversary of RV'ing and there is no better way to help celebrate the RV's centennial than by taking a family road trip. With fuel prices holding steady, traveling by RV is more affordable than ever. According to the Recreational Vehicle Rental Association, many RV models allow a family of four to save up to 57 percent on vacation costs such as airfare, lodging, baggage checking and meals.

RV'ers are also some of the greenest vacationers out there- research shows that RV vacations have lower CO2 emission levels than airline, rental car and hotel vacations.

Before you hit the road, follow these five easy steps to plan your perfect RV adventure:


Plan Your Journey In Advance:

Lessen your stress on the drive by knowing where you're going. Whether you take the scenic route or travel by freeway, map out your route in advance with software such as Microsoft Streets & Trips. You can plot your course, determine your travel time and estimate your fuel expenses before you even leave the house. You can also plot out a comprehensive list of restaurants, gas stations, attractions and other points of interest along the way.


Proper Maintenance Is Key:

A quick once-over of the RV will save you the headache of getting stuck on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere. Before you leave, be sure to check the fluids and make sure the air pressure in your tires is at the recommended levels. Nothing can throw a monkey wrench in your travel plans faster than mechanical problems.


Reserve Your Spot In Advance:

Your RV neighbors may have booked their parking spots months in advance, so be sure to call ahead to reserve a spot. You'll save time, fuel and the stress of having to drive around to find last-minute accommodations.


Preparation Is Essential:

Make a list and check it twice because preparation is crucial while on the road. Stocking up for the trip in advance will help you maintain a healthy and consistent diet, while steering away from unnecessary impromptu purchases. Purchase groceries at your local supermarket to avoid stopping for fast food. Prior to leaving, make sure your RV's emergency kit is stocked and you have plenty of water.


Avoid The Dreaded "Are we there yet?" Question:

Show them where they are along the way with Microsoft Streets & Trips with GPS Locator so they can see exactly how far you've traveled and how long each leg of the trip will take. The product can also help keep you on track with spoken directions, automatic rerouting and large on-screen directions.
