Full Time RVing => General Discussion => Topic started by: owengent12 on January 09, 2012, 01:31:55 PM
RVing full time does require a bit of pre-planning. If you’re RVing with kids, it requires ALOT of planning. After all, you can’t just “show up” at Yellowstone National Park on the fourth of July weekend and expect for them to have a full hookup RV site for you ready and waiting for you.
While you gave a good tip, the most important RVing Full Time tip will vary with each and every RVer you ask about it.
I can not imagine anyone just showing up anywhere on a holiday and expecting things to run smoothly, but there are places you can do that without any problem. Personally I would not want to go to Yellowstone or any other National Park on a holiday as the people are so thick you can not do anything without stepping over someone.
Full time RVing for us has been a great adventure and yes we do make some plans, but much of it is by Seat Of The Pants method and we get urges to go someplace suddenly and just go.
Yup you are right. Pre-planning is very essential if you are going RV camping. Although camping is all about immersing yourself and your family into the wonders of what the outdoors provide, depending on the age of the children in your family, it’s not a bad idea to have some activities planned for your trip.
This might go along with planning but always have a back up free dump station. And if you a moving most days, dump at every free dump station.
A local Travel America with free dumping is becoming less RV friendly. I was talking to a Fedex driver there yesterday and he was told the dump is on the way out. The RV only parking sign on the 5 long level spots went a week or two ago.
Yes! Pre-planning is definitely important when it comes to RVing. The last thing that you'd want is to get unpleasantly surprised the moment you arrive in the campground. Spending a few minutes doing a bit of research, especially on the reviews posted by other RVers that have already stayed in that campground really goes a long way. At least, you know what's waiting for you there and you're able to bring all the stuff you need and places to go (like the free dump station and convenient stores) so that your trip can be enjoyable.
Mission accomplished. It's splendid.
