Planning Your Route, The Key To A Great RV Vacation

Posted on Jan 21, 2014

An RV is not built like your traditional car. Being a longer and taller vehicle in general, depending on how large your RV is, will play a large factor when you are planning your trip. Safety is, of course, the number one concern. Planning around the RV of your choice with the tips below will ensure you avoid inconvenient and possible situations as you make your way around California.

Consider Personalities

Does your family like to plan out a vacation well in advance or are they more spontaneous? In reality, it is probably a combination of both. You will need to work as a team to keep both happy, those who are open minded will need to allow some organization to take place and those who like stringent planning will need to appreciate slowing down from time to time.

Utilize Multiple Sources of Info for Unfamiliar Place

Getting ideas and information on the internet may be tricky. Many websites will be bias for or against a location or activity in an area for all sorts of reasons. Scouring the website for authoritative sources of information will help you form realistic expectations to consider.

One of the best sources of information for RV vacations is Road Trip America. Online since 1994, experts have compiled enough resources to ensure that there is no shortage of information wherever you plan to go in America. From maps, routes, trip ideas, sites to see, to fuel cost calculators you can use all of those information to come up with your ultimate road trip. If you have any questions you can also jump into their free forums where thousands of road trip experts are willing to answer any question that you may have.

For those who are members of the AAA.com club, you can use the TripTik Travel Planner which allows you to plan your trip online and save it to the TripTik App on your phone. You can see the team at the local AAA office where the experienced team can:

  • Create a TripTik Travel Planner Route for you
  • Provide info on vacation packages
  • Help you find the best deals

Planning for a road trip can take months with the amount of resources online today. Eventually you will need to come up with at least a plan.

Pick a few resources you trust and discuss with your fellow RV vacationers and get ready to hit the road with your RV from 1st Choice RV.
