The 7 Must Have Items For Fun and Comfort on Your RV Road Trip
Even if you plan to do a little camping or backpacking while RVing, you can bring almost anything with you when you take to the road in your Recreational Vehicle.There is no reason your trip can’t be fun and comfortable! Try some of the tips below to make sure your trip is a great one:
The trickiest part of having a successful picnic is remembering everything. Bring along a plastic tarp to put underneath the blanket in case the ground is wet. Don’t forget the tablecloth. Paper towels are essential for spills. Cleaning wipes for sanitizing dirty hands and faces, especially if you have children, are also a great item to bring along.
Writing journal, art and craft supplies, books, magazines, lots of pens and pencils, audio books, your favorite music CDs, portable CD player. This is a good time for the kids to catch up with any required summer reading for school.
To enjoy the best in baked goods on the road, quality mixes are a quick, easy solution. Mixes make vacation life easier, because everything is contained in one package. They are also convenient and proven, so you know your bread, cakes, pastries and desserts will turn out well.
Bring along light snacks and a rolling cooler with cold drinks. Be sure to include bottled water. This will help you avoid making unintended stops. Have moist towelettes and paper towels handy for spills.
Cell phones, accompanied by personal digital assistants (PDA’s) to organize your time, two-way pagers and dubbed text messengers. Each new generation of these devices is smaller, and the prices keep falling. Plus, they’re a great way to stay in touch, and can be lifesavers in an emergency situation. Keep your phone within easy reach and get to know its features. Use it sensibly, however. Reports indicate that driving while talking on the phone increases accident rates.
For the campground, you will need outdoor carpet, lawn or camping chairs, awning, and, of course, a BBQ grill.
It will be to your advantage to let your children bring along their techno gear while traveling, in spite of your policy at home for electronic toys such as Game Boys, portable DVD players, headphones and the like. These important assets will help to keep them relaxed while traveling, and they will be less likely to get fed up and whine.
One final note, as you plan your road trip, be sure to pick campgrounds that offer a little something for every member of your family.
