Sometimes when you’re traveling long distances, you’ll want to stop along the way without taking the time to get set up at a campground. If you are thinking of boondocking on your way to your vacation destination, don’t miss out on these RV tips. We’ll show you five ways to ensure boondocking goes smoothly for you.
Although breakdowns are uncommon, if you’re on the road a lot, the chance of having problems on the road increases, so it’s a good idea to never leave home without an emergency kit for breakdowns or issues along the way.
Get a Good First Aid Kit
I cannot stress enough how vital first aid kits are for RVing. No matter where you travel, ensure you have at least one fully stocked first aid kit in your RV. If something happens while you’re boondocking, camping, or even on the road to your destination, you’ll have what you need to take care of almost all minor injuries.
Test-Run Your Camping Trip
Before you leave home, take a day to set up your RV at home as if you were at the campground. Make a checklist of all the things you’ll need to use at the campground before you leave by going about your day in the RV at home so that you can easily get what you need without having to buy it at the campground store.
Know Your RV
One of the best things you can do to ensure your trip goes well is to know your RV inside and out. This includes knowing how long your water tanks will last you, how much electricity you can get out of a full charge on your RV’s solar panels, and more. Take some time getting to know your RV before you plan a trip to ensure everything goes smoothly.
Plan to Arrive During the Day
Setting up your RV at night, especially if you’ve never been to the campground before, is a recipe for issues. If you’re boondocking on your way to the campground, try to stop about 4-5 hours from your destination to ensure you arrive during the day. This will give you have time to inspect your campsite and the surrounding areas before setting up. You can always request to change spots if the campground isn’t booked up.
